    Purchased around April of 2011 with 118,000km. I'm the third owner. I was originally looking for white but could not find one in good condition anywhere. Silver was my second choice. Many, many mods planned. I have a budget and usually stick to it so the mods will come slowly.

    Canopy off. I might put it back on in the winter. Not a big fan of them.
    [​IMG]

    Had a thule from a previous vehicle, figured i'd try it out for camping. Can still access the bed from the sides but a little extra dry/secure storage.
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]


    New rims/tires about a month later. XD Addicts/Nitto Terra grapplers. Also sold the useless side steps for $100.


    Tried with centre caps and without. Ended up going with the caps.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Got some tint on the front windows to match the rear. It turned out darker than i thought. We'll see if i keep it.
    Also had them put on my sockmonkey decal.

    Hood struts


    [​IMG]

    Put my winter tires on.
    [​IMG]
    Just in time. The roads were covered in ice, car bouncing off curbs all over the place. I had no problems stopping with the studded tires.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Did the deck plate mod. Doesn't look as nice as i'd like with the plate sticking out, but it works and i wasn't about to pay a re-stocking fee for a $20 plate. Over all it's the best mod i've ever done to any vehicle in terms of "bang for the buck". Truck sounds awesome and i think i'm getting better mileage to. Throttle response is noticeably better.

    Plastidipped stock (winter rims) This pic was taken 4 months after I sprayed them. They held up well over the winter.

    Planning on a 3 inch. Probably go the Bilstien route. Haven't made up my mind or come up the cash yet. I have a quad,pitbike,scooter, and 5 pedal bikes. My "Mods" budget is limited and gets spread between the toys and the truck. My build will be slow.:(

    Put on my 2012 4Runner trail edition rims and 265/70R17 Nitto terra grapplers. This is the last set of rims/tires i'm buying until i get my lift purchased and supercharger installed. I keep coming across wheel or tire deals i just can't pass up.

    Some HID's. Would prefer 5000k but all they had were 6000k.

    Thanks, I had the cash saved up for a complete OME lift+rear leaf pack. Ended up going to the bank and doing a lump sum extra payment on the truck instead. Boring i know but i really want to get it payed off by next spring. I've got 2 years left of payments on it or i buckle down and do it in 6 months.

    Decided to add my Toyota vehicle history to my build thread, instead of creating a new one.
    It all started with my 86 Supra. Super fun car but i was too young and too broke back then to fix it up and keep it. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Got a 92 nissan stanza after the supra. Decided i needed some thing more reliable, fuel efficient and newer.
    06 Yaris RS.
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Decided i needed a truck so i sold the yaris and got an 04 qc colorado zq8. Was a rattle trap and had intermitent electrical problems so i sold it and got a 94 SR5.
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Didn't want to be driving the truck (04) every day and racking up the odometer, plus after adding tires and what not the mediocre mileage got even worse. Time for a cheap daily driver, 99 Corolla.
    [​IMG]
    Drove that for a couple years, served its purpose well. After a while I wanted something a little newer and a little more pep. Stumbled upon a good deal on an 09 Corolla XRS.

    Bought a dirt bike with my OME lift money so I put in a Truxxx lift/level for the time being.
    Also added some 255/75R17 Trail Grapplers.

    What size where the xd addicts with nitto terra grapplers. Looking into getting some and was curious if I would need any kind of lift or leveling kit. And did they scrub?

    I believe they were 17x9 with 265/70r17 tires. I did have some rubbing on the frame at full lock. Spacers would help, probably 1 inch would be enough. May want a lift after the spacers but I went with a different setup so I can't say for sure.

    BoxRocket bed rack has arrived. :D
    It came with mounting hardware and fits perfect. :thumbsup: Once I make up my mind on how I want the axe/hi-lift/2 storage boxes/2 Rotopax/2 telescoping light bars arranged, ill probably bed line it for durability. I'll be using it for a RTT in the future so ill have to keep that in consideration with the layout.

    I did a little mock up with some of the things that will go on it.

    [​IMG]

    I've been trying to figure out how I could have a telescoping pole to put a rechargeable LED light on. I stumbled upon this one day and figured it would be perfect. It has 3 height settings and cost $20.00, I bought 2. Now I just need to figure out how I want it mounted.
    Mock up.

    Looking good. But it looks like your parents left that sitting outside for a while. There was no rust on it when I shipped it.
