    Well since I have been inspired by many others build threads I decided to make my own. Nothing drastic has been done yet but I have done a few mods to stand out from the rest. (Not really just another black Tacoma :))


    Interior:
    LED interior lights from CSjumper. Went with the white LEDS for maximum light output. Night and day difference. Inexpensive mod and would recommend to anyone.
    Rear view mirror relocation bracket
    Kenwood TM-281A Race radio and NMO Diamond antenna

    Exterior:
    2500K HID's for my fog lights from CSJumper
    ARB CKMA12 Air Compressor, 20ft hose

    Armor:
    Front and mid skids by Pelfreybuilt
    Front Plate Bumper by Pelfreybuilt

    Suspension Front:
    Suspension - Baja Edition
    TRD Bilstein 9100
    Wheelers front Super Bump stops

    Suspension Rear:
    TRD Bilstein 5160's

    Future mods:
    Pelfreybilt Sliders
    Warn VR10000s Winch
    20" SR-Series Rigid Industries LED Flood/Spot Combo
    Rigid Industry Duallies LED White Flood

    Look what I got!! Air compressor and pump up kit. I was going to run a tank but decided not to. This will take 37's from 0-36psi in less than 2 mins. So filling up my 265's is going to be cake :)

    nice looking truck. I have a 2013 trd offroad and I'm trying to get it to sit at the same height as the baja. Do you know what exactly I'd have to do to my truck? I know your truck comes with 66mm front and 50mm back bilstein shocks. But I can't find those anywhere. Any ideas?

    To be honest with you I think you have to "Know" someone to order the parts off the baja since they don't sell them as "upgrades" I think the rears can be ordered but the fronts are a different story. I know is an Eibach #650 spring. If you wanted to go the cheap route you could just get a 2 inch spacer (but I don't recommend that if you're going to off road) otherwise I would look into a decent mid travel setup from Fox, Icon or King. I'll see if I can find some part number for ya on what I have.

    Hey man, sweet ride. I just bought a '14 Off Road and the mods you have are the exact direction I want to take my truck.

    Quick question, is that the "ImMrYo" mirror relocation kit? I am 6'3" and the first thing I did while test driving was think "I have got to move this thing up." However, the guy has only posted 5 times (last time in 2012) and I haven't been able to figure out if he is active and still making them. If it is another kit, where did you get it?

    Thanks

    Congrats on the purchase and thanks for the kind words. That is the same kit. I think if you PM him he'll get back to you on the details. That's what I did.

    Awesome. Thanks for the quick reply.

    I just noticed you are in SD. Same here. I am moving to Seattle sometime next month but have an itch to use my truck a bit while I am here. As a former BMW owner I have no idea what is good for off-roading in these parts.

    I know the desert and sand dunes are the main thing it seems, but I grew up more of a forest-trail and rock-crawler in Colorado. Any ideas where I should think of taking the truck this weekend?

    Also, I mountain-bike. I think combining the two would be a good time. I usually go to Mission Trails, which is good for biking but not so much for anything off-road in a truck.

    Might get an air locker at some point. I mounted it in the small cubby behind the drivers side passenger seat. I'll get some pics.
