    Its been a minute on updating this build thread, mainly due to a recent knee injury that i had to take care of and busy with work life.

    So i am going to go at it differently and update this build as i go with write-ups, pictures, videos of installs, wheeling trips, camping trips and dumb shit that I end up doing. My intent is for it to be a fun learning experience for my self and everyone on what not to do :D:bananadance:

    I did start a you tube channel a while ago and it took me a minute to get it sorted out and learn how to edit videos. I enjoy taking landscape photos so i will be sharing some of those as well.

    Link to my YouTube Channel:

    Did an update to the build thread, will be updating it again with future plans:spending: but this is current. Bought T1NDER back in April 1, 2017, was my first Tacoma and Truck. I wanted a manual but couldn't find one especially in the color I wanted which is the Inferno. This me taking her from the dealership with a horrendous hair cut :bananadead:. Bought it with the tech package which came with the sunroof, heated seats, mirrors, crawl control, etc.. along with the tonneau cover and the predator steps. I eventually sold both of them as i made changes and upgrades. 2 years and 4 months at 27K miles T1NDER has come a long way

    T1NDER still a virgin

    T1NDER no longer a virgin

    That's when the research and build began, I was not yet in to the wheeling scene and my vision was turning her in to a truck that I can go out an explore the vast nature this country had to offer and beyond.

    The first few mods I did were the roof rack, the bed rack (as i was looking in to RTTs), adding 2 sets of ditch lights (rigid industries), removing all the emblems, changing the front grill and adding the spider emblem. The grill was custom made looking like a web like design and and the spider (black widow) was fitting. Some early photos

    I dont think you will have that much clearance issues. You probably will need a really good alignment, and thats all hopefully

    :fingerscrossed: adding the TC LCA did help with the camber, will have to cut some of the fender line and already smashed the cab wall because i was rubbing on 33s. That was due to four things, about 500lbs upfront, wheel offset, spacers, and still being on OEM LCAs. Shaved off some weight (not a lot) but it helped and the major player was the LCA. I wasnt rubbing anymore on 33s. Did dry fit 35s but with 0 offset, i was barely clear which means with compression will surely rub, but then again the offset is different:annoyed: we shall see when i get them tires! lol
