    How it started^


    Finally starting a build thread on my first Tacoma... I spent about 2 years searching for the right one (2012+ TRD OR DCSB W/6 Speed and tow package) and once I’d found it I said that I wouldn’t change a thing with it. Well that lasted about a year... I’m surprised it took that long. I haven’t done a whole lot of mods to my truck honestly so this will be relatively short- but its a start.

    Special Thanks:

    Richard of stubbs welding did an awesome job on the sliders, made them insanely fast and the price was hard to beat. (Got to weld em on still)

    Allthough I never talked to someone personally, @HeadStrong Off-Road had all my items I ordered for my lift at my door in less than a week. Much faster than I expected... overall a very painless experience...minus the lighter wallet.

    All the users on Tacoma World that have dedicated their time to making awesome writeups and how-tos

    Lastly I used @Zac of all trades build thread as a template for my own (maybe this is a standard template, dunno... but thought I would give credit)
    Pardon the crappy formatting, trying to fix it​

    Suspension:


    · Front



    · Wheels & Tires


    Armor:


    Under the hood:


    Exterior:

    · Spyder headlight housings with halogen projectors

    · DEPO black housing rear tailights

    · Removed basically every emblem and badge (minus the grill emblem which I painted black)

    · Color-matched the chrome grill surround with some duplicolor spray paint

    · Shorter anntenna

    · Rally Armor flaps (clear much better than oem and are flexible)

    · Removed nerf bars the truck came with in preparation for sliders

    · Fox sticker (lol)​

    Interior:


    Misc:

    · Rear diff breather mod

    · Headstrong Extended rear brake lines

    · Changed all diff, trans and transfer case fluids​

    To do/ Future:

    · Hyrbid front bumper from Pelfreybuilt?

    · Cab mount chop- already made blanking plates

    · Install sliders

    · URD bellhousing SS quill sleeve for TOB (damn OEM design)

    · Fox hydro rear bump stops

    · Maybe some sort of rear tire carrier setup

    · Another maxxis put on my spare​


    Feel free to ask questions and thank you for looking!

    Thanks. I love the headlights. They have the same amount of light output as oem which is ok with me because the oem lights are pretty bright imo. However it has a nice sharp cutoff since they are projectors. Looks are very personal but I think they have a nice look without being too ebayish. But that's my opinion. Seal the seams with rtv and keep wax on the lenses and they should last.
