    Well my first truck was a 1994 Toyota Pickup 4x4 SR5. I loved that truck to death until it died haha. Lady pulled out in front of me and it was done :( her she is. R.I.P
    [​IMG]

    So then i got a 1997 Lexus LX450, At the time i didnt appreciate it as much as i do now. I did love though when i would pull up somewhere with mud on it and people would ask me "You take that lexus in the mud!!?"

    [​IMG]

    So i then traded that in for 2001 Tacoma 4x4 TRD Off Road. It was completely stock other than the UWS tool box and the BFG All terrains
    This is the 2nd day of having it

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It sat stock for a month or so then i did the deck plate mod, For some reason my buddy put the blue rtv around the outside of it haha

    [​IMG]

    I then painted the emblem. Im glad i liked it since it was paint haha
    [​IMG]

    Then i found out about the wonderful (or not so wonderful to some) Plasti Dip. I dipped the surrounding grille and bumper

    [​IMG]

    I then did the emblems in black and gave her a good wash

    [​IMG]

    I then installed Bilstein 5100s on the front set at 2.5. This picture shows the rest of the grille done. I never took a picture with stock suspension

    [​IMG]

    Here it is with bilsteins and pullin my boat
    [​IMG]

    So friday afternoon the Eibachs came in and Sir1123 helped me put em on. Well, he pretty much put em on haha
    I didnt get any pictures that night cause it was too dark. But then saturday i installed my 255/85/16 Km2s
