05/15/13 - Just picked up my OME lift. I chose to do the 884x coils and the TSB AAL (even though I don't have the TSB). I wanted to have a noticeable lift, but didn't have the money to get UCA's that I would need for the 2.5" or higher lifts, and as much as I would love 33" tires, I couldn't justify the loss in performance for what I use the truck for 95% of the time. I also shied away from the 5100 route because I didn't want to sacrifice ride quality by preloading my progressive Off Road coils. I picked them up for about $800 from ToyTec assembled and will do the install in a couple of weeks when I have the time.

5/23/13 - Picked up a color matched grille! Took about 5 minutes to swap out and I'm pumped with how it really cleans up the front of the truck. I also snapped a couple of photos of the debadge and the derped front Toyota emblem:

Finally got around to installing the suspension! I went from 20" (hub to fender) up front to 22". Love the way the truck looks and performs. Smooth, but firm ride (very close to stock, but a tighter feeling). I was able to get the lift done, as well as swapping my old stuff onto my wife's 4Runner with a few friends in just a little over 3 hours. Before the lift I had the 15-25 mph shudder, but after the lift the truck is smooth as glass! That was a very unexpected surprise!

Found a local guy who wanted to do a straight swap: his MGM bumper for a chrome bumper! It took us about an hour to complete the swap. You can also see the trimmed rear flaps in these pictures. No more white 4x4.

10/31/13
Picked up a new A.R.E. CX topper. I'd searched craigslist on a nearly daily basis since I bought the truck with no success, so I finally gave in before winter. Carpeted headliner, 12V LED interior light, sliding windows, pet screens, and LED tail light.

FUTURE MODS:

Thanks for taking a peek, and I'll keep this updated as best I can!

I will use this post for action shots.

6/15/13 - Slaughterhouse Gulch
Made a trip out with a buddy of mine and had a blast!

Quick posing shots on a rock just off of the trail:

There was a really long, steep, silty, rocky climb that we were checking out. I'm pretty far up to the top on the right side, that's my buddy on the left:

Ran Barbour Fork with teamhypoxia (Eric). It's a beautiful trail that's really pretty close to town that I will definitely be visiting again. It took us a little bit under 4 hours to complete with a couple of short stops.

It doesn't take long for the obstacles to start:

There's an open field a little ways into the trail that we found some horses in. A few were pretty interested in us:

My worst trail damage of the day came here, when one bit the truck:
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b8...I/IMG_4533.jpg
In the same open space, there was a HUGE rut caused by the runoff from all the rain that we've been getting. We straddled it for a good while before it became too wide and precarious, so we went around:
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b8...I/IMG_4522.jpg[/URL
We started up a pretty fun rock climb about half way through the trail:
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b8...I/IMG_4549.jpg
Got a little wheel-stand:

Thanks! Do you work for ToyTec? You have a beautiful truck yourself! Almost exactly what I'm going for.

PS78 05-16-2013 01:34 PM

Nah, just rep them because they are great guys, and local.

Thanks for the compliments, let me know if you have any questions while building up your rig

krob32 05-16-2013 05:14 PM

Now we are getting somewhere. Nice truck. Looking forward to seeing the lift.

Thanks, Kelly! Yours was another truck that I've drooled over plenty when making my decisions on my mod list.

Thanks! I think it looks a lot sharper for sure. The wheels are just the OEM TRD Off Road wheels.

Grieby54 06-03-2013 12:29 PM

Lift is finally installed. OP updated!

BBtacosurfer 06-03-2013 05:17 PM

Your lift looks great. Good choice in the MGM color.

Good looking truck. I have been thinking about the same lift. Did you experience any different mpg from the lift. It looks like you still have stock tires.

My commute is 85 miles a day and I'm not wanting to mess my mpg up. I can get 21-22 all day long on the hwy.
