    Bought the truck in June of 2010 a couple weeks before i finished Highschool for
    $5000, with 174k Miles. Basically no mods what so ever , except Newer Trd Sport wheels which were on Bald Tires and a Rhino Bedliner.
    1999 Tacoma Prerunner V6
    Automatic, 2 Wheel Drive , Non Trd.
    Here is what it looked like stock, the day i brought it home

    DSCN2365_fab5774c06e6e34245f2708e7df184a5f963b90e.jpg
    DSCN2368_bd72e9d72a6191955749159e077dafede6f1601f.jpg

    First Mod was Stereo , Everything i bought was Budget prices and used. I got a Kenwood stereo, 800 watt amp, and a Jl Audio Sub 12" , I custom made a box for it to fit in the back inbetween the two seats, also as a arm rest.
    Dont have pics right now, ill get some tomorow.

    My next mod was Painting the wheels black, so i painted them using Duplicolor wheel paint satin Black.

    prerunner_0d0bc216928524c7c35a5f3903a2359f73b8ef73.jpg

    Shortly after i added a lightbar on the front, which was a mistake i should have never got it.
    DSCN2576_d98a25e878f2f2cd1b8ff97ba8b4e6afb2442185.jpg

    A little after that i added , window tint, and rancho shocks with a 2.5" spacer lift up front. Yes all this on budget, $16 window tint precut off ebay installed by a friend. And the lift and shocks off craigs for $60 bucks installed myself. Sometime after aswell i added a Flowmaster 40 , for $40 bucks lol.
    DSCN2587_22771be150161ac1a12fbd14a105f3461d071a94.jpg

    Then after that me and my friend built a tube bumper for myself which he designed off Solidworks, which came out to $70 or so in materials.

    Some time passed and i needed tires badly, so i found a set of Eagle alloys wheels and Goodyear tires 265/75/16 with 80 percent tread for $380 off craigslist.

    0301110829a_783659df764b77ba35db1c0a027c0ed0de58b140.jpg

    Added led lights for turn signals becuase the front bumper is gone,
    DSCN2771_3d41ead88254aedb8df4c14a576fc85b610d9c88.jpg
    Also got some Plasti Dip and covered the emblems and grill, I also added some cheap rancho shocks i got off craigslist too.

    DSCN2731_9da61803c328f535c4199b206a8f25bccfb89eaf.jpg



    After some trips out offroading and in the desert knew i needed to redo the suspension. So i got a pair of Add a leafs off a member here for $20 bucks.

    Picture032_4da2e671487a8fa1fe9d2d148d50df7d011b19b4.jpg

    I knew i had to get better shocks , somehow i found some Fabtech "yes i know they suck but they are just as good as fox , etc" Shocks for up to about 3" of lift for $45 bucks off craigslist in Georgia, one needed to be rebuilt , so i bought them and rebuilt the shock. Which these are 2.25 nitrogen charged, huge 7/8" shaft.

    Truck sat like a stinkbug , high in the rear for a little bit, about a month or so when i knew i had to do something to the front.
    I searched and searched and found some Racerunner coilovers 2.0's on craigslist for $200 needing to be rebuilt, off a lady about 1 15 minutes away from me. So i took a drive down there which took 2 hours in traffic trying to get them before 4 o clock before the next potential buyer was going to get them, i got them and took them home and rebuilt them, the seller gave me a gallon of oil and seal kit.

    DSCN2914_479a3b9ac2d60ceea41076e7968b7838141da3f0.jpg
    And cranked them up to about 3"

    Next, i got some Hella 500ff', and converted them to Hid. I knew i wanted to get fiberglass , for my future Long travel. So i got some Glassworks 3.5" fenders for $140 , and running some 1.5" wheel spacers. And added a dust light. Also added cheap air horns, Deckplate mod.

    DSCN2948_91428a5697921c0aed972a4d417ecd81ab99d7a1.jpg
    As far as Maintence parts added, I have added new oxygen sensor, timing belt, water pump, thermostat, tranny mount, carrier bearing, air filter, two core radiator,
    And recently installed Total Chaos Steering rack bushings.

    I think i have about a little over $4000 into it now.
    Thats it for now. Thanks for looking.
