    I got my dads truck almost two years ago when I turned 16. I decided to make a so called build thread :rolleyes: Anyways there is a few things the truck has had added but I don't have pictures of like rotors and new cat ect. The mods I'm going to do to it won't be as drastic as some on here just a bit of my touch and a few big things hopefully :D The site has given me alot of new ideas alot from Cmacks old thread haha and help replacing stuff. Thanks for looking and please give me any opions or advice!
    How it sits today

    This is where it spends most of its time :rolleyes: (school parking lot)

    I got the truck stock apart from 30" Duelers from my dad the 1st owner.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Left it alone other than regular maintenance. Had a cutting under load which turned out to be a spark plug misfire. My radiator cracked on the plastic topper.
    [​IMG]
    Patched it for a while but NAPPA had a new one for $100
    [​IMG]
    Ran a few camping trips with my friends it might "seat" five but its more of a stuff
    [​IMG]
    Got a bit of an itch to do something to it and saw some cheapo lights and decided to add then on. They were brighter than i had expected.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Over Christmas I got some new lense and hella 500's
    [​IMG]
    Put the Hella's on earlier tonight so they arent wired yet.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Also I ordered in cooper at3 tires in 30x9.50x15 for $623
    So when I got the coopers installed but got half way home and my truck started to shake bad so I took it back to find out 2 of my rim were bent so I went with black aluminum ones I think they will look good and only $400 for all four with a wheel kit? (becaused they screwed up) They should be in from between Friday and Monday and ill have pictures of them up when I mount the tires on them

    Rims
    [​IMG]
    Got the rims on!
    [​IMG]

    New lenses
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Hauling a few branches...:D
    [​IMG]




    If anyones got any ideas for the truck I appreciate them!
    My thread has turned into alot of BS haha but it should all now be in the teen bs thread or our fb chat so from now on it will hopefully only be the stuff I do to my truck. Btw 25ish or younger (at heart even) check out the teen bs thread in my sig!

    Thanks, man! My sliders are made by a guy from right here on TW.

    http://www.4xinnovations.com/955-04-Extended-Cab-Tacoma-Rock-Slider_p_72.html

    And for a CB, a bunch of us use this one because it literally slides right into the ashtray. No bolts, screws, or anything. It just sliders right in!

    http://www.amazon.com/Uniden-PRO520...=UTF8&qid=1383186448&sr=1-5&keywords=cb+radio

    Just remember that the antenna you get is WAY more important than the CB you buy.

    Mine slides in too like that, it's the cobra 19 ultra iii. The uniden is nice but my cobra was only $35, and I got it at walmart so I didn't pay for shipping. He's also right about an antenna, I made the mistake of buying a cheap $20 mag mount. Ended up going back to spend almost $50 on a nice fiberglass 4 footer.

    Truck looks great man!

    So I'm getting the rims on tomorrow and was wondering if the lettering should be white or black facing out? I'm leaning towards black but wanting some second opinion.

    So I called to ask why my rims weren't in today and they said some crap and such and now they offered Mickey Thompson classic ii (Price should stay the same)

    And I forgot with the truck I have slotted and drilled rotors and ceramic pads that I'll put pictures of up later.

    Love the new wheels!

    I can't ever tell how wheels look from pictures not on a vehicle. I don't like the look in the picture from the website, but they look awesome on your Taco!
