    Got the truck in May of 2008 (don't have any original pictures.)Its a 2004 SR5 4x4 2.7L. Originally i had no desire to mod my truck in any way, but then i found TW haha. I figured since i have enough done to my truck now i can actually start a build thread and u guys can see some progression haha.

    First mod was the WVU Decal which obviously adds horsepower and sexual attraction to your cousins

    Then came the K&N CAI

    Then i put on a Flomaster 40

    After that came the front Billy 5100's

    Then i decided to go with the black out look and slowly did both bumpers, grill surround, badges, and wheels

    It sat like that for almost a year, with the only other mods being the new frame that toyota put in for free, and a new head unit and speakers which i don't have a picture of but will update soon. Once this school year ended and i worked enough i finally saved up for my wheels and tires :)

    Pro Comp 8069's with 32x11.5 Wild Country XTX tires.

    I tinted my tails as well

    I got my Rear Billy 5100's put in today but don't have any pics yet and the spacer has been difficult to put on but i will see if pep boys can do it 2moro when i go in for my alignment. Heres a pic of them tho when they arrived from wheelers

    it adds some throttle response but idk if it was worth the money in that regard but it def improves the sound of the exhaust

    def noticed an increase in throttle response and didn't have to downshift on a beast hill that i had to always before. I'm hopin it will do even better when i get rid of the FM for a magnaflow and header (not sure which type)

    yea, yay we don't have to watch Jeff Mullen's pathetic predictability that he calls "an offense" anymore.

    Ever figure out a part number??

    I have a 3.4L and the salt has eaten my stock muffler, I don't want anything to loud, I was thinking either flowmaster 50 delta or the magnaflow however I cannot find a specific part number for the magnaflow??


    I am in Morgantown as well...

    its a 4x9x14 inch magnaflow that i got. 2 1/4 in/out, i don't remember the part number but go to magnaflow's website and look at all the 4x9x14 with the 2.25" in and outs and you'll find it. Sounds so much better than my old flowmaster and the truck revs smoother and has a slightly increased throttle response.

    it sounds soo much better, worth the price just for the sounds not to mention the longevity. I'm debating dumping the exhaust after the axle since my pipe looks like shit and prob hurts the performance slightly
