    Decided to start a build thread to keep a time line of my build.

    LATEST Pic Updated: 04/10/2011

    I bought the vehicle in October of 2009 with 26K miles on it.

    The only picture I have of my truck when it was brand new. Taken during a duck hunting trip. Which ended up being a awesome day.

    Had the truck for a while and decided to get a Leer cap and paint the steps black instead of chrome.

    Along the way came some weather tech mats.

    Decided to do the Satoshi grill with Hella 500 behind the grill. Needed new tires so I got some 265/70/17 Goodyear Wrangler Duratec. At the same time decided to do the TSB for the rear.

    CIMG0168_50abca5cedfa3cb55deba3d4c6a3778467fc0c74.jpg

    Ordered some DDM 55W 6K HID for the front head lights, 35W 5K HID for the fog lights, and converted the Hella 500 with DDM 35W 5K HID

    Just cleaned the truck up so I decided to take some pics. Took off the side steps.

    Picked up an AFE CAI on craigslist.

    Ordered 5100, OME 885, Toytec TACO lean spacer, Light Racing "SPC" UCA, ICON 1.5" AAL and Black Rock 909B wheels.

    Will update when install is complete.

    2/19/2011

    Box of goodies came in right before the weekend. The only thing left is the new wheels.

    So the suspension installation took 9 hours and it was will worth the time. The only thing left is an alignment and still waiting for the new wheels to show up from 4wheelparts.

    Toytec ULK, Light Racing UCA's, OME Dakar rear leaves, ARB Bumper with XRC8 winch, Good Year Duratracs 285/70/17's on 17x9" Level 8 Strike 6's. Leer cap in the winter. Pioneer Double Din with BT, iPod, etc. Boston Acoustic components in all 4 doors with a Sony amp, powered 8" sub. Ultra gauge, Tom Tom...
    Truck looks awesome. You're gonna love the LR UCA's. I just had mine aligned yesterday. The Toyota tech has a racing history and he loved the ease of adjustment. My alignment is awesome, the truck runs down the road great. It drives like an UN-lifted truck. (Though I went with the Toytec ULK, I'm loving it!!)

    That's exactly what I did. I'm thinking of fabricating a new light mount but haven't had time. I think there a guy on here who used some aluminum edging to make his. I might go that route.

    Put the new rims on and decided to go cap-less.

    Thanks for the comments rcfreak201 and TRDsport253.

    So I just ordered my projectors for the retrofit and thinking about putting a bed bar across the back for my basket and bikes. I'll post some updates as soon as it's completed.
