Talking 2005 Stock PreRunner- Build Ideas

Alright, FINALLY got my truck Black 2005 DC PreRunner Sport with LSD (no locker ). Been looking around and trying to figure out where to start. My buddy just bought an X-Runner and is installing all sorts of LED's in the cab and in the hood. Been trying to get some ideas. Not sure if I want to go with black/chrome, black/white, black/blue, black/orange, etc.... He even mentioned doing black lights in the cab and an over all black and subtle dark purple look. I'm looking for suspension, versatility, and looks. I probably won't be mudding, but I want to be able to handle ANY small trails, gravel, dirt roads (which I know the Runner can do anyway ).
Tacoskim, man I really dig your ride Just trying to figure out a general "theme" to shoot for, and go from there. Kind of thinking a true "Prerunner" kind of look with a bit of sand/off-road capability. Initially I wanted to do some wheeling, but this will be more of a long distance cruiser / weekend "baja" / camping rig. I'll be looking at older 4x4's in the near future for a true crawler. But for now, looking for opinions and suggestions on where to start. I know we can all agree, Taco's look sick just sitting there. But I want to make it pop out a bit, and give it some utility (as much as you can with a PreRunner). Suspension, wheels/tires, paint scheme, lights, shocks, nerf bars (maybe sliders?), interior, exterior, gimme what you got. Ok GO!!!

..........and I'll post pics soon when I get my camera working

Ok, so I've added a poll. Here's what I need:
I'm looking for a general color scheme to go with my black DC PreRunner. I've seen a lot of blacked out Tacos, and they look sick!! Would like to throw some color in there though. Still could go with black, kinda unsure. Thus.......the poll
Just need a general color scheme to base everything on the truck. Then I can start getting some ideas on what I wanna start first.
I've seen the white Taco's with the blacked out badges, rims, accessories, etc and that looks amazing. I'm wondering if a black Taco with white accents would look as good I'm open to all suggestions, please post pic examples if you have em. Thanks!!!

Welcome to the board man. Congrats on the new ride, BSP FTFW. Check out the thread with all the BSP tacoma pics for ideas. I'm going with the black/black theme myself.. with a hint of red here and there (from TRD of course). Not to heavy into lighting, used to do it to my old cars when I was younger.... so I respect it and all that... blue interior lighting's always been my fav though.

Some visual mods I'd suggest checking out (some I'll be doing myself later):
- Satoshi Grill
- Wet okole or black leather (even better if you can afford)
- leather arm rest (check upper links)
- BLHM (first thing you should do, no question there)
- Black badges or debadge (i'm still on the fence, but I think i'm gunna debadge here pretty quick).

From there... it never stops

I have a feeling it's going to be a disease

what about the white badges on a black body? Don't think I've ever seen that before...
