    Here is my 2001 double cab TRD Tacoma, 6" TC suspension lift, 35x12.50 Dick Cepek's, 15" Dick Cepek rims, flow master exhaust, CAI, crappy front bumper, crappy stock modified running boards (only have them on so my 6yr old son and tiny wife can get in) and front pinch weld mod done.

    I've got plans to get rid of that front bumper I have on it now and get a Relentless Fab front bumper, rock sliders (thinking custom made), and looking at making a custom rear bumper. I have no inside mods yet, but looking at putting in an aftermarket radio and CB. I'll post the progress done to my truck here... I've built many offroad vehicles in the past, I use to rockcrawl with my Suzuki Samurai's (see them here: http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v619/fireman_343/My%20Truck/?start=120 ) back when I lived in NC, and have built many Jeep's and a few Toyota trucks in the past.. you can a few of my vehicles here: http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v619/fireman_343/My Truck/?start=0

    Back to my current vehicle...to answer a few questions I get all the time...The tires do not rub at all when offroad, truck does great with the 35's on. Not in a big hurry to get 4.88's on, but would like to at some point.

    Here are a few pic's..

    Thanks everyone, I hope to improve the truck a little bit more, but don't want to get too crazy because I'm not rock-crawling with it like I've done with my vehicles in the past!

    I get about 15mpg on avg... If I keep it below 2k rpm, I'll do a little better, but not much!

    Chris, yeah... Thought I would post something up. I've been wanting to get out in the garage to work on it, but these cold ass days here in Ohio are killing me and I don't feel like working on her. Maybe I'll see if I can pull in into the heated garage at work and do some things to it??
    Either way, as soon as the weather gets better, I'll be doing more to the truck

    I'll take a pic of it tomorrow.. its raining like crazy here!

    Also, I put the truck up for sale... I'm wanting to get an awd car and then a newer Tacoma in about a year.. But.. I'm not really pressed to sell right now, as I owe nothing on this truck! But, it would help pay for a newer one.

    Here it is all waxed up and super clean!!
