    Okay guys. I know this is a second gen thread forum and my name emplies that i have an 04. Well, I did, and i loved it. But im 6'5", 280lbs and was pretty cramped in the first gen. So i sold it and purchased a used 06 access cab 4x4 with a 6inch fabtech kit already installed. I figured buying it with the kit already installed and then upgrading would be better than starting from scratch. Anyway, i have only had her since november and i am a broke college kid so not many mods right now, but that will change (thanks to tw):D.

    So here are some of the mods.
    -Fabtech Basic 6inch lift kit
    -Cruiser Alloy Custom Black Rims 17x9
    -33x12.5x17 Cooper Discoverer STT
    -Custom Bedside Decals
    -Icon 6" Coilovers
    -UWS Lopro Toolbox
    -Debadged with one black tacoma badge on tailgate
    -Flowmaster super 44 off of a buddies samurai

    FUTURE MODS (Any and everybody is welcome to donate)
    -315/70/17 Duratracs
    -Procomp series 98 steel wheels (not sure if they'll fit, but I'll buy 1 and test fit it)
    -Nitro 4.56 gears
    -Rear locker (not sure what kind yet)
    -All-pro expedition leaf packs
    -ATO shackle flip
    -All-pro u-bolt flip
    -Bilstein 5150s
    -Rear plate bumper (I'm thinkin either ATO or Relentless)
    -Front plate bumper (Elite most likely)
    -Sliders and a highlift
    -Custom skids to fit fabtech lift
    -LR UCAs

    Now for the few pics that I have.

    yeah they are both good. and i think jackson was gonna try to walk on to States team but that never fell through. i know he still plays a lot though around raleigh and back home at the cardinal. . . you might know or remember seeing another one of my buddies if you ever golfed with them, josh best. if the name doesnt ring a bell he was 6'10" and skinny. he's a good buddy of mine too. . . but yeah States a great school man, funny enough my twin sister goes to ecu. she's a teaching fellow and all that. the pride of the family if i might say haha. but yeah i went to one or two of the basketball and football games out there when i was in school. nojo shouldnt have been moved to 2A in the first place. best i understand we've gotten beat a lot worse in a lot more sports than in previous years.

    my money goes to gas, insurance, cell phone, car payment, food and grocery's at school, beer and whatever else i need. my camera on my phones messed up and havent bothered to upload a pic from a digital camera. Its got matching front tint but thats about all for the moment. I didnt buy it to play with, i needed something to drive . . mods are in the future, just can't drop the dough right now.
