    Looking to get a few pictures up of where I'm at with my Taco as of now. Afraid I didn't do a very good job of documenting the build. It's just one of those things that just sorta "happened"...a mod here, another little one there, and all of a sudden you realize that your truck is modded and it's starting to look pretty cool!

    There are a bunch of things I still want to do but here's a list of what I've done so far:

    2/28/2008 bought my truck: Indigo Ink TRD Sport 4x4 Double Cab Long Bed

    Mods in the order that I can remember them:

    Grillcraft grill
    AXXESS aux in with iPod interface (replaced)
    Audiovox Xpress XM radio (replaced)
    Custom devil horns Toyota logo
    K&N Cold Air Intake (replaced)
    Black headlight mod
    Fog lights on anytime mod
    Maglight mount
    Weathertech floor liners
    Debadged
    Trex color-matched eyelids
    Access tonneau cover
    Sno-way 7'4" snow plow
    Auxiliary backup lights
    Rear spring TSB
    Removed front mud flaps
    2.5" Hell Bent Steel front lift
    1.25" Spidertrax wheel spacers
    285/70-17 Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs
    Satin black painted TRD Sport wheels
    Black satin tube steps (replaced)
    Custom HomeLink install
    CompuStar remote starter
    Motorola MOTOROKR in-car Bluetooth speakerphone (replaced)
    Redline Tuning QuickLift Elite hood struts
    TRD Supercharger
    TRD Cold Air Intake
    TRD Cat-Back Exhaust
    Pioneer AVH-P3200BT head unit
    Pioneer GEX-P920XM XM receiver
    Axxess ASWC (to integrate my steering wheel controls)
    Go Rhino Nerf Steps
    Clazzio Custom Leather Seat Covers
    Front and rear seat heaters

    Plasti Dipped front valence

    Future mods are:

    - Work on audio system
    - TRD cat-back exhaust

    Thanks for looking.

    Thanks! $15.00 at Walmart. They are just a set of cheap fog lights that I wired up. I have a switch in one of my storage compartments in the rear that I can use to disable them if I want. Plan on putting a three-way switch (ON-OFF-ON) in the cab so I can have them come on with the backup lights, have them turned off all-together, or have them on by themselves without having to be in reverse...will take care of someone who's got the beams in my eyes from behind! :D

    VERY NICE TRUCK!... Did you have to do any trimming with the 285/70's on the stock rims (with the lift)? I'm planning on running the same set up on 285/70 on stockers.

    Thanks, man! Sent you a pm but the short answer is -- YES, had to do quite a bit of trimming.
