    SOLD :(


    I figured I've been here long enough that I should start a build. I'm always changing something so updates will be made often.

    I got my 2006 new at Longo Toyota in Nov 2005. When I bought it it was 1 of only 2 double cab 6speed 4wds in white in California. I dont have any pictures of when I got it only pictures after having it about a year.

    How it sits now
    Out with the old in with the new

    My first mods white grill and billet lower grill.

    Then the BHLM and lund screen front (sorry for the small pic only one I got)
    [​IMG]

    Grillcraft top and bottom and Sockmonkey badges
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Powder coated my skid plate black and BFG ATs

    Where I mounted the switches for the lights

    Corolla/Matrix XR-S Shift Knob
    [​IMG]

    Bed lights
    [​IMG]

    Then I traded Hiatt wheels to go back to stock wheels and got DuraTrac 265/75s mounted

    Got rid of those wheels for Gen 3 4Runner Wheels
    [​IMG]

    I also got the mud flaps from Pepboys (forgot the name but they were type 7) and the fit like a glove. I like the look of mudflaps but hated the stock ones these are so much better.


    My cousin (FooFightingFJ) and buddy out at Bell Mt.

    Fog-light Anytime Mod
    4WD switch light
    JBL sub box with non JBL radio
    CB antennae mount
    JP "hook-ups" bed mounts

    Leveling kit
    Wet Okole center console cover
    EZ down tailgate assist
    X-runner front valance
    Pop & lock

    I know there is other stuff I'm forgetting.

    I got a JBL box and put my own sub in it and tapped into the stock radio for the amp. It for sure does not BUMP but it does have a little more kick and looks totally stock.

    They are Pro-Flow type #7. They are around $30 at Pep Boys they fit great and have more flexibility then the stock ones.
