    Thanks, Ya I really like the look after blacking everything out. Last step in the black headlights, hope to do in a couple weeks. Probably wont do much more, want to get a 4x4 by the end of the year.

    :( you gonna sell it? Just convert it to 4x4 (not as easy as i made it sound) I want a 4x4 as well so im just going to convert mine.

    Its gonna be a little ways down the road, hopefully parts are alot cheaper by then.

    Well Cham, took your advice. Planning a 4x4 conversion. After a lot of thought and research ive decided to take on the chalange. It is much more cost effective than selling and buying another so for the smae price I can convert and add some other goodies. :D

    Ill be using a A750F transmission and a FJ manual tcase to bypass electronics. For the front diff Wyatt at RST has a harness that allows the ADD assembably to be enguaged through a switch.

    Parts list so far,
    Tranny
    FJ Tcase
    FJ/Tacoma Front diff
    Custom fabd crossmember
    Cv axels
    Front/rear drive shafts
    ADD harness
    Seals, bolts and other parts also needed.

    Will also be installing,
    LR/Icon 2.5 Ext coilovers
    TC UCA's
    Nitro 4.56 Front/rear gears
    Icon rear shocks
    Leaf pack (Expos, dakars, alcan)
    1'' body lift
    Compressor w/tank
    315 Treadright guard dogs on MT classic beadlocks
    Skids, sliders and Relentless front/rear bumper

    More pictures to follow and will make/update build thread through out swap process

    I want to keep an eye on this.

    You've got one of the best DSM Tacoma's I've seen. I just got mine yesterday and yours is inspiring me. I like your wheels and your lift.

    I'll be following this thread, good luck!
