    I didn't notice there was an actual "Build" Section, so im re posting this here. Sorry for the posting in the wrong forum!

    Hello Everyone, I think I am complete with my truck, if not, there are only a few minor changes. I don't hit the dirt as much as I would like to, so I was very cautious when choosing the tires, so I do have my reasons. Lets go through this, shall we?

    Fresh off the Lot, less than 9,000 miles. Basic 4 door, 4x4 2011 Tacoma.

    I was quick to lift the truck, and take off the obtuse mudflaps. (just using 3" spacers in the front)

    Blacked out the Grill, emblem, and bumper crosser.

    Think that the black looked good, just not on my truck

    Then I panted the Engine Cover, which is still my favorite "mod"

    Tinted the windows, 20% all around, on top of factory tint. You cant see a damn thing at night, and you cant even see the shadows from the outside.

    And Finally the Bigger Tires. 305/70/r16 on stock suspension, minus the 3" spacers in the front. I had to trim all the plastic from the front, and it still kinda rubs when you are in reverse. I Haven't lifted the back yet, but I plan on putting 2" blocks in the rear, and maybe 3.5" in the front, but its not a problem right now. The tires I got were a bit worm, maybe 40% tread left. Literally, if I had any more tread left, they wouldn't fit. When these tires are 100 percent bald, I will have to get smaller tires. Which sucks because I love the 305's (which translates to 32.8) about as close as you can get to 33's on a 3" lift.

    Looks good man, I like the quality of pictures too.

    The glock sticker is cool - doesn't matter how far I park from a store, everytime I come out someone's touching my rig or leaning on it. A quick blast from the diaphragm does the trick
