    Hello TW my name is Brandon and I am a soon to be sophomore in college. I am going to be doing a slow cheap college budget build. It was originally my mom's truck, but she gave it to me when I was 16 after she bought her new tundra.
    Here is how my truck currently looks (5/21/13) and I will update as I add to it.

    I mostly have invested in my sound system with a kenwood excelon headunit, 2 kenwood coaxials, 2 kicker coaxials, 2 memphis tweeters, 2 memphis SR 12s, and a memphis 500w amplifier. On the outside I have a UWS toolbox, Westin step bars, a chrome (not sure what brand) brush guard, and 2 KC 57 series fog lamps.
    To Do/wish List:

    • dual exhaust (flowmaster super 44 or magnaflow)
    • deckplate mod
    • bilstein 5100 front shocks
    • ultra motorsports "Crusher" 16" or 17"
    • bedliner
    • bed extender
    • plasti dip badges
    • debadge tailgate
    • retro fit headlights
    • clear corner lights
    • install CB radio
    • window tint front windows to match back
    Super Expensive Wish List:


    • Warn winch
    • 4x4 conversion
    • 5 speed conversion
    • front and rear lockers
    • 3-4" lift front and back
    • trailgear (bumpers, sliders, and snorkel)
    I will add and remove items from the wish list as needed (completion, change of heart, or new ideas)
    thank you for reading, positive feedback is welcome :D

    tomorrow I will upload some more pictures. I will put up pictures of the CB radio I have, and I have an idea for my tool box that will be posted after completion :cool:
    I will also clean the inside out and take more pictures of the interior.
    I plan to get some of the cheaper parts of this build (plastidip, debadge, deckplate, etc.) started within the next week or so:D

    It works, just really dirty. My friends dad got it from work after they retired a whole set of them and he had no use for it because the company gave him a new one.
    I have to buy an antenna, a coax cable, and a mount then I can hook it all up and get it working.

    this is all the junk that came out of my tool box and a sneak peak of the inside before I begin work on the tool box mystery conversion plan.

    this build kinda died. sorry to anyone who might have been interested in watching me build my truck, but my priorities currently lie elsewhere. Long story short, college gets expensive when you don't keep your grades up. however I am not giving up on my build! It's just currently on the back burner until I get a better paying job and regain my financial aid.
