For your viewing pleasure...

The day I bought it.
http://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/...0-25180854.jpg

Alright the first thing I did was removed the hideous hub caps
http://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/...316_154534.jpg

Then, I ordered my grey weather tech floor mats. I don't have a pic, but im sure everyone knows what they look like here

Decided I should take it mudding with almost bald tires and factory everything :rolleyes: turns out that's a good way to get stuck.

Next were the tires. I got my Falken 265/75/16 from discount shortly after buying the truck
http://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/...oiphone264.jpg

Debadged and MB wheels from discount, not a good pic, but it's the only one I can find.
http://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/...r/IMG_1043.jpg

Ordered my Ebay black housing headlights. Turns out they aren't sealed well but that was an easy fix
http://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/...r/IMG_1283.jpg

Shortly after this I installed a bluetooth grom for my factory stereo. I found it online for about $110 and it was totally worth every penny. I got an aux port, USB port and of course bluetooth wireless syncing.

How it sat right after, with blacked out toyota emblem and me and a friend of mines BMX box project

Satoshi is easily my favorite mod and I got to buy one of these

Decided I need to show off the truck even when I'm not in it

Latest mod, traded my factory 07 tails for tinted 11s

Holy crap these pics are massive and I don't even know why

Dark_Taco 12-06-2012 07:17 PM

The plasta dip on your wheels looks great.....interested as to how well they will hold up over time.

Thanks man. I did it about 6 months ago and it's still holding up really well. I figured it would be peeling by now, but it looks pretty much just like it does in that picture

Dark_Taco 12-06-2012 07:40 PM

Good to know. I might try this with my rugged trail wheels

Large 12-06-2012 07:44 PM

Not wasting time I see. Looks good.

Mikes 07 Taco 12-06-2012 07:45 PM

You should do it. It's an easy process and if you don't like it there is always removing it. I did mine while still on the truck. I jut put a bag over the brakes and started spraying the wheel

Thanks a lot man. I've had it for almost 3 years now though, so it's a pretty slow thing

Mikes 07 Taco 12-08-2012 12:38 AM

Tinted the 3rd break light today, pretty terrifying thing actually but i think it came out pretty good.
http://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/...r/IMG_2439.jpg

I also removed the black "6.0" sticker and added a lime green fox sticker to match the "Taco" and my potential lime green and black theme. Not the best pictures because it's dark, but I'm sure there are more to come.

Washed the taco and put a few extra coats of plasti dip on the wheels. Oh and added the FJ Toyota badge.
What y'all think?

Thanks guys. Worked hard on her. I actually have a question for y'all though. How difficult is it to replace the ball joints on the upper control arm for these things?

Mikes 07 Taco 11-28-2013 06:55 PM

Just a couple recent mods to update.

Mounted the PIAA's to fit the Toyota badge in between
http://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/...ps03f95b25.jpg

Had a little photo shoot with some bro's after a little offroad funhttp://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/...pse11f7578.jpg
http://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/...ps81d25983.jpg

Got me a sweet high lift jack
http://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/...psdffbcc1e.jpg


Retrofitted an HID kit into y PIAA's. Sealed the crap out of them because I have condensation.

http://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/...ps40a7f97e.jpg

Removed Toyota badge and added yellow line-x'd fogs. HID's for those are still in the mail.

Mikes 07 Taco 11-28-2013 06:57 PM

Oh and I ordered LR UCA's so those are on the way too

tacoma16 11-28-2013 06:59 PM

Steves104x4 11-28-2013 07:06 PM
