    After having my 07 DC LB for awhile, I finally got sick of the length and I didnt like it anymore. It was a bitch sometimes to park, and I jsut didnt need the back seats..
    So I descided to return it back to stock and try to trade it in on a AC TRD sport.. I descided since used Tacoma'a were going for soo much, and for 2-3k more I could just get a new Tacoma. I went ahead and baught a New 2012 white AC TRD Sport.. I Freakin Love this Truck!

    Well here is my build soo far. I should have started this thing a while ago, but totally forgot about it.. :D

    Here's my 07 Taco..
    [​IMG]

    Here's my 07 Before I traded it in.. All Back to stock.

    [​IMG]

    Now the New 2012... first day I braught her home.... Took the Mud Flaps off asap!:D

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then I took my Wet Okoles from my 07 and wanted to see if they would fit.. And they did. The headrest was sooper tight..
    I dont have a pic of them yet, but next I debadged some what, and painted the rear and front badges black. and also got some sock monkey Decals..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After that, I hated the Grayish color of the Lower Valance. So I Plasti-dipped it and also used Plasti-dip clear coat. It looks great and matches the Grille perfectly..

    [​IMG]


    Finally after waiting to save up alittle. I was finally able to order my lift. I still had my 285 duratracs and Addicts, just sitting in my shop..
    Ordered up OME shocks, 885's, 1/4" top plate spacers, trim packer, and Wheelers Progressive AAL. I Also or ready had TC UCA's.. :) so that went on next.,...


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Got some Nokya Hyper Yellow Fog lights and PIAA Xtreme White headlight bulds... Light outpu is awsome and looks way cool.. hehe :D

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Took her to the Mountain to do some hiking..

    [​IMG]


    ^^In that pic you can also see how my Pinch Weld's are painted black so you cant see them.

    Here's a pic of the Same lights on my 07 Tacoma.. (Best lights Ive had yet!)

    [​IMG]

    Things I dont have pic's of yet.. Are my UWS tool box, and OEM Tacoma Bed Mat which I think is the best investment of all...

    Also I just got my Dynomax Super Turbo Muffler installed, which sounds good. Nice deep mellow tone, that is barely louder then stock. I also noticed alittle better pick up and go.. I think this muffler will sound great coupled with some DT shorty Headers.. :cool:
    Which might some next. lol.... Either that or some good speakers...

    But before those 2, I have some LED's I need to Install in the Cab. One for the Cup holder area, and one for the center console. Both will be white. to match the OEM white.

    Let me know what you think, and I cant wait to do the next project. I love and hate this damn Modding addiction.. :D

    Sorry for crappy photo's, But as you can see, I got one for the cup holder area and one for the Center Console.. Both are cool white from Oznium... I think it matches the stock 12' white lights nicely..

    Thanks!! Im def. going to do the BHLM. But I kinda want to wait till the rainy season is gone.. :)

    Glad your happy with your lift man! I dont get any vibes higher then maybe 5-10mph. just when i first start going I wil get little vibe/shudder.
    If you have a vibe or shudder around 40-45mph that usually has to do with tires.. maybe try a rebalance first then go from there..
    BHLM in the near future!! :D

    The 05-11 fogs are a H10, and I had those in my 07 for about a year or so..

    They are a great light bulb.. good light output and they cut threw fog and snow much better..
