elclem21's Black Taco build
 
This is my truck the day I bought it, 09 Tacoma TRD DCLB. I took this pic with my cellphone.

Shortly after, I ordered a set of WeatherTech DigitalFit floor mats, and WeatherTech window visors. I also applied the foglights anytime mod, and trimmed my front mud flaps about 4 1/2 in.

Before, I had this 07 Ford Ranger FX4. I liked it, but I was getting to the point I was feeling squeezed inside the cab. This is why I sold it and bought the Tacoma instead.

Stay tuned for more... it will be another slow build, but a good one I promise.

Head unit installation, part 1
 
I got a Pioneer AVIC-X940BT DVD/GPS/BT HU a few weeks ago. While I was waiting for my wire harness, dash kit & steering wheel interface kit from Tacotunes, I decided to plug my new H/U to an old computer power supply to test it out and pre-program it. I hacked a few files & changed the splash screen.

Today I received my goods from Tacotunes. Instead of using the provided crimp caps, I opted for my old and proved method: solder and heatshrink. I found it gives a much cleaner touch.

And here's a pic of the h/u mounted into the dashkit.

A nice little touch from the folks @ Tacotunes, lovely !!!

Sub'd, it's a start for now man!, but I've gotta ask what are some future upgrades/mods you have planned?

I am thinking of a 3 in suspension lift, wheels & tires, some homemade custom fab (rock sliders, bed structure). Maybe a front & rear bumper could be nice too.

My gameplan is to take my time, do my research and ensure it will be trouble free.

That's all good, and better to do things right the first time! Look forward to your build!
