    Well it's probably adequate time I make a build thread. It may be a boring thread because it will probably take a long time to get my truck where I'd like to get it as I'm becoming a father here in January 2021. (Very Excited) You never know though maybe things will come quicker eventually. So it's kind of a 2 part build.

    The first part is my daily driver build, as this is my only vehicle this is going to be my daily driver build. My direction is a clean TRD themed street build minimal cosmetic modifications to keep a stock look but will still turn heads. Focused mainly on performance and a comfortable ride.

    Part two is going to be full long travel baja/trophy truck. It will be a long time to get to that point as I'd like to keep my truck a good DD for 5+ years, my son is going to be my main focus and priority with everything including $$$, and of course probably the main reason... I'm broke, well not really I just not out here big ballin able to buy everything I want. But enough with the boring introduction. Heres the start to my build

    Most recently I've replaced the "TACO" grille with the stock one. And added a TRD badge from @tacos4cheap

    Next mod coming soon is the hood scoop decal from @CBoy808

    Thanks man its exciting. I tried the turtle wax brand I believe for the headlight restoration, it worked great I think. The outside cleared up really well I think whats causing the rest of the haziness is from the inside. They were much worse before though

    Got my @RelentlessFab stingray bumper in a few days ago. Would've finished installing but the trainees at work too forever to finish my windshield. But here my progress this far.

    Merry Christmas and happy holidays to anyone keeping up with my little build.

    Finally got to see the family and my brother got me some shackles for the new bumper. Digging the look almost full blown mall crawler status. All I need is a hi lift that I won't use... anyways here's what it's lookin like. Might just do one shackle haven't decided yet. :santa2::santa2:
