    Well Guess i'd make myself a thread since now i'm starting to do real mods to my taco.

    Here's a picture the day after we got it, 100% stock even had the little plastic bag over the high adjuster for the steering wheel. Picked it up March 2011 with 37k miles

    [​IMG]

    First mod i had to do was the "taco" mod
    [​IMG]

    Here's another picture with it at monster truck status and my Ebay fog's
    [​IMG]

    Then we got the Real license plates and put a ball and hooks in the event i'd have to tow something for any reason
    [​IMG]

    After that we got some new wheels and tires cause the stockers had no grip and were fugly, also dropped in a AFE pro Dry along the line

    [​IMG]

    Once i found the magic of plasti-dip i blacked out the grill
    [​IMG]
    Got tired of the polished look of the rims so I plasti-dipped
    the centers black

    [​IMG]

    Got tired of that too so I did the rest of the wheel black

    [​IMG]

    That all happened uptill April 2012 which in May my dad got his new car (The blue GTR in my pics) so the Taco fell by the waste side after i failed at installing a 1.25" drop and stripped the front spindle out

    Random pic in October of me drag racing the truck
    [​IMG]

    Truck finally got a pic of attention in Late November when it was too cold to ride and i had had some 2" blocks lying around from a failed drop so i decided to install them too see how it'd look

    [​IMG]


    Stayed like that till December 29 when i installed the front DJM arms santa got me for Christmas :p

    So here's how it sits today, untill tomorrow when i do the rear part of the DJM drop
