96 tacoma slow LT "build" from Yuma, AZ

hello tacoma world, my name is robbie and i purchased a 96 tacoma 4wd a few months back, i have a new member post floating around somewhere. Anyway i decided i was going to longtravel the truck and I figured why not post up the progress! This is my first build thread so bear with me...this is also my first truck lol. Im doing the best i can so far with some help from my friends, so sorry in advance if anyone asks questions and i dont know how to answer them.

here is how the truck first looked when I first got her, Sorry for the crappy picture, its the only one i can find of her all stock.


I bought a skid plate and spacers and put em:


I took spacers off, got some HID hella 4000:



Than after breaking a few joints and reaching a breaking point i decided to order a Long travel kit off a gentleman in Show Low.



after borrowing plenty of tools from my friends and with A LOT of help from them, i finally got the kit on:




Then i got the fenders paint, custom krylon paintjob


Took it out to fortuna to play around




well thats it for now!!! when the time comes for the back, i plan on running an f55 deaver pack with triple bypasses hopefully, if i have to ill run smoothies with the external resis.

Took my truck to a local shop called one stop and they finished up reinforcing the frame and fully boxing it and cleaning the frame up. Also got front hangers mounted for deavers. Tomorrow the deavers should be mounted.
