    Owned a 2006 AC TRD OFF ROAD a few years ago and traded it for a Z71. I regretted getting rid of the Tacoma immediately. Almost 3 years later I'm back! Purchased a 2014 Super White DCSB TRD OR with 35K miles 7/13/17

    New Build:

    Interior: Weathertech floor liners| LED lighting| Ultra-Gauge | Sportsman Camo Mossy Oak Bottomland seat covers

    Audio: Stock head unit with Kicker 40CSS674 components in front with Alpine KTP-445U power pack.

    Exterior: Debadged| OEM color matched grille from Camelback Toyota| Westin Bed Mat| LED license plate lights| AVS in channel window visors

    Suspension:
    Bilstein 5100 front and rear
    OME 884x coils
    1/4" Top Plate Spacer
    Deaver 1.5"-2" AAL with TSB leafs

    Wheels and Tires: 17" TRD Pro Sema wheels and 265/70/17 BFG KO2 C range

    "Performance": AFE Pro Dry drop in filter

    Future:
    Add rear door speakers
    Bakflip bed cover or cross-over toolbox
    More tint
    Full 3" up front and new leaf pack

    Old truck with Bilstein 5100 @ 1.75 and Toytec 1.5" AAL and 1000lbs of deer corn in the bed. Wheels and tires are XD Addict 17" with 265/70 Federal Couragia tires.

    New truck the day I got it. Came from dealership with a spacer installed, mud flaps removed, and New Weathertech floor liners.

    First thing I did was order some TRD Pro Sema 4R wheels and 265/70/17 BFG KO2 C range tires.

    Looks like some serious bro lean but the picture was at an angle. Also added AVS in channel window visors.

    Who doesn't love Weathertechs?

    Ultra Gauge. Still have to calibrate this when I get a chance.

    IMG_0796.jpg

    AFE pro dry drop in filter. No real noticeable difference with it installed (haven't calculated MPGs)

    OEM color matched grille from Camelback Toyota. They had the best price that I could find. I sanded, primed, and painted the emblem.

    Ordered my suspension tonight.
    OME 884
    Bilstein 5100 front and rear
    1/4" top plate spacer
    Deaver 1.5" to 2" AAL

    May not install the AAL after seeing some pics without it. Will install the front first and see how I like it. Hoping I don't regret not going with the OME 885.

    Also installed some Noico sound deadening and some Kicker 40CSS674 component speakers. Also have the Alpine KTP-445U power pack that needs to be installed. The Kickers are a definite improvement even with the stock head unit. I attempted to install the Alpine power pack, but I didn't feel comfortable cutting into the stock harness.

    Got an alignment and the PowerPack installed today. Truck definitely drives better and the Alpine brought some more life to the Kicker components.

    Well, I’m back in a full-size truck. Due to a growing family, I traded the Taco in for a 2015 F150 CrewCab 4x4. Will miss my Tacoma and sure I’ll be back one day!
