    custom badging, Black Badges, tint, General AT/2's, nerf bars black, ultra-gauge,toytec AAL, removed mud flaps, Bilstein 5100's @ 2.75, AFE pro dry s air fliter, spidertrax, black rock 17'' wheels
    So I finally feel like posting a build thread of my tacoma. It in no way rivals most tacomas on here but I like it. I've done a few mods have more to come.

    Mods done: bed mat, remove TRD decals, black badges, tint, general grabber AT2's, black nerf bars, toytec AAL, Bilstein 5100's @ 2.75, and an ultra-gauge.

    Coming soon: 885's, wheel spacers, aftermarket UCA's, AFE pro dry s filter, removal sencodary charcoal filter, BHLM, Black tail lights, black powder coat my rims, wicked flow exhaust (missed the group buy), LED interior lighting, remove mud flaps (probably today), order TRD decal from sockmonkey, (man I have a lot to do).

    any other suggestions/ cool mods you have done that might be useful?

    yeah you read it right. when I was lowering the diff the jack broke and shook the truck i was under the spare tire area, when it shook it fell of the jack stands cuz it was on a slight incline ( my dumbass fault and I knew it too) so I ninja rolled into the street while my buddy who was under the left rear drum taking off the u bolts and stabelizing the rear axel did a flying squirrel into the bushes luckily the rear end fell perfectly onto the jack somehow and nothing hit the ground. it was a bitch to get it back up took over an hour

    How about, "luckily nobody got killed"? Glad no one got hurt and your truck didn't get damaged.
