    I thought it was about time to start a build thread since the mods are adding up!

    I have a 2009 Double Cab Short Bed MGM offroad prerunner V6

    I named her Stormshadow because of her MGM color :D

    interior mods:
    Toyota Dash cover in grey to match interior
    Ultra gauge
    Jerry-rigged Ipad mount with 550 paracord

    exterior mods:
    Plasti dipped front grille
    Avid Light Bar
    *wanting a grillecraft front grille

    OME complete kit with Dakars
    Light racing UCA's
    Carrier Bearing Spacers
    wanting new bumpstops from wheelers

    Wheels and tires:
    KMC XD Series Enduro size 16 4.5" back spacing and 0 offset (front wheels sit extremely close to the brake calipers)

    tires are Yokohama Geolander all terrains 265/70/16
    Im wanting either 265/75/16 or 285/75/16 when my current ones wear out (currently have about 13K miles on them)

    Other mods:
    Plastidipped grille
    BAMF behind the grille light bar with Rigid Dully LED lights
    relocated the horns
    AFE Drop in re-usable air filter

    About a week or so after I bought it

    Before and after my "lift"
    although I have a complete OME kit with 885x coils, trim packer and Dakar springs I dont sit to much higher than a stock tacoma. I'm gonna add top plate spacers later.
    Pre lift numbers were:
    Hub to top of fender
    Driver front 20 1/4 inches
    Passenger front 20 1/2 inches
    passenger rear 22 1/2 inches
    Driver Rear 22 inches

    Post Lift Numbers:
    Driver Front 23 inches
    Passenger Front 23 inches
    Passenger Rear 25 inches
    Driver Rear 24 1/2 inches (with 3/4 full gas tank)

    Avid light bar with line-x
    you can also see the plastidip grille in the photo. I just plastidipped the bars and where the "oval" center is I left stock for a bit of difference (ill get a better picture later)

    Jerry-rigged Ipad mount
    I took out my stereo and tied some 550 paracord that i had laying around
    I leave it on the charger so itll turn on when i start the truck and have the audio through the aux port for the stock stereo.
    I am really wanting to get a Soundman Car Audio slider mount to use a Bluetooth wireless 2 channel kit to use my ipad with an aftermarket headunit

    well thats it for now! thanks for looking!
