    In my opinion any mod over $500 that doesn't cause an erection lasting at least 4 hours is a waste of time and money.

    Well my build got off to a good start but it’s going to be a long time till it’s finished if ever.

    My most recent mod pics.

    At less than 1K I got my OEM fogs (thanks Howard{hstringe})
    I wired them my way with no switch by wiring the switch leg of the relay to the running lights. I use them as daytime running lights. And we all know what OEM fogs look like. My Auto OEM Fog Light Mod

    After first trail run I trimmed the mud flaps. 4" off front and 1" off rear. They scrape a lot less now.

    At less than 2.5K I got my lift on. (thanks Josh {sierrahsky}) A full 3" front and rear.
    [​IMG]
    Josh and I with some help from my wife did two suspension jobs in under 4 hours. Took the suspension off his Taco and put it on mine and returned his to TRD stock. Thanks again Josh for the help and the great deal. No spacers and no Taco lean!

    Great ride much better than stock. Feels fine at 85mph with stock UCAs (professional driver on closed course)

    [​IMG]
    Donor and recipient Tacos post surgery, both are doing fine.

    Taco still fits in the garage but antenna now hits on the way in or out. Anyone know of a good garage lift kit? Yes I searched.

    Thanks. Still a lot of work and money to go but it's a good start.
    Someone here used a step ladder by the fenders and I thought the jacks would be a better visual.

    Picked up a set of TRD Alloys for wheeling for $100 still need tires for them.
    I'll use my stock Steelies & Dungflops for commuting.

    Well I did the first of 2 or 3 of the nonfunctional mods I plan on doing.
    1. The sticker mod
    [​IMG]

    2. I will paint the pinch weld when I get my sliders.
    3. I might paint the TRD wheels after I see what they look like after I clean them up.

    Now that I got the extra wheels and don't need to worry about mpgs (will use stocks for commuting) I'm thinking about getting 255/85/16 BFG KM2s

    Well I ordered some off road tires for my Taco's first birthday.
    255/85/16 BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM2
    Discount Tire Direct wanted $218 for them.
    Tire Rack wanted $195 for them.
    Just plain Discount Tire wanted $202 for them, but have a if you find them at a lower price let us know policy. I let them know & they offered them to me at $190.
    I should get them this week or next.
