    I thought this would be a great way to document the dynamic story of my truck from beginning to end, as well as keep track of the trips and the different places I see along the way. Hope I have enough visually stimulating pictures to make who ever stumbles upon this, give me a few positive votes. I'm hear to share my the story of my 07 Toyota Tacoma, part of my life, and make some great friends along the way.

    So lets just get right into it.

    Here's how it looks now.
    [​IMG]

    April 2013, on the day I got it. My buddy Anthony showed up to check it out. This hot car dealer chicka took our picture and I had a pretty big smile on my face that day.

    After first wash, Richmond Beach sunset shot.
    [​IMG]

    Tried to take a self portrait.
    [​IMG]

    Added some WeatherTech Floor mats front and rear, clutch for exploring in the PNW.
    Also 20% tint, not too dark you can't see on those dark rainy days.
    Found this lowpro toolbox for my golf clubs and tools.
    [​IMG]

    Wired up some bed lights that i never used....
    [​IMG]

    Got a free Yakima rack from my step-dad off his Tundra and a free bullbar from my buddy Anthony who worked at Toyota of Puyallup.
    Note: Kevin ruining the picture by adjusting himself in the background, thanks dude.

    I installed my rear susupension this weekend with Jerrad's (JDAM) help. Went in with out a hitch.... yeah right. It's true when they say replace your old parts as soon as you can, cause some of those bolts were on there real good. We actually broke a craftsman socket! But all in all, it was successful, and I'm loving my new rear suspension so far.

    OME Dakar Leafs with AAL installed
    Icon Extended Travel 2.0 Shocks
    Superbump bumpstops
    New Brake lines and U-Bolts

    Didn't have any vibrations so I didn't install the drive line drop or the shims.

    Does that truck in the pic behind yours with the 4runner (in the snow) in it have a 6" lift or 3" lift? Hard to tell.

    I'm pretty sure its a 6 inch with 35s, but i could be wrong. He was struggling in the snow with those big tires and stock gears.
