    Well here it is at the dealer 10 minutes after it came off the truck Jan 2011. It's a 2011 Access Cab 2.7L 4x4 SR5 Automatic. Some options include cruise, power windows and locks, air, keyless entry, steering wheel audio controls, alloys, and leather wheel and shift knob.

    This pic shows newly installed Armor Lid, Hidden Hitch, window tint, and my first attempt at a tire upgrade. Goodyear Wrangler Silent armor P265/75/16's. I also installed a Ready Lift levelling kit at this point.
    [​IMG]

    Next came PIAA Xtreme White driving lights. This kit is Tacoma specific and bolts right in.

    Shot of the Warn Trans4mer grill guard or as my buddy calls it, the cow puncher. At this point I wasn't sure if I was going to get a winch. I also installed a hood protector but it was so ugly I couldn't stand looking looking at it so I removed it shortly after.
    [​IMG]

    Got a good deal on a Warn M8000 and wireless remote from 4Wheel Parts. Closeup of the winch mount after I had it Line-x'd. Still waiting for the fairlead at this point.

    Goodies from Toytec. Eibach coils and 5100 Bilstein shocks. Can't beat this stuff for the price and works better than the levelling kit.

    As it sits currently after the six inch Procomp and new wheels and tires.

    Went to the Tampa meet today and Pyro did this for me. I like the blue much more than orange:

    Not so much a build thread as it is a list of accesories I have had installed to make the truck a bit more to my liking. Here's the list as of March 16, 2012:

    Looks good! Very clean.


    Did those PIAA lights connect to the factory wiring or did you splice them in? Are they much brighter than the standard fogs?

    Looks good! Those wranglers prograde or p-rated? They seem to work pretty well, bit slippery on ice, but can't complain for an a/t...

    Just curious if they are pro-grade what pressure you running?

    I used the wiring that came with the lights since my truck didn't come with factory fogs. Yes they are super bright.

    Hey man how are you liking that Armor Lid? I'm looking at possibly getting the Undercover model or the Armor Lid. Any differences between them?

    I recently had a NFAB spare tire carrier for my full-size spare but I want a cover so I figure I'll just lock it in the bed

    I like it a lot. It's a year old now and I have no complaints. The Undercover is pretty similar. Mine has a smooth underside and the Undercover has an X pattern structure that you can see underneath and I didn't like that as much.
    I'd buy one again if the need arises. How are you liking the spindle lift?

    I love my Camburg spindles...it's the only way to go IMO with a Prerunner.

    One more question for you - does your tonneau overlap over your factory bedrails? If so has it ever shifted and scratched the paint? Thanks
