    Today, while I am at work and everyone else in the world is off, I figured I would use my time wisely and begin to compile my build for a history of my truck, and what I plan to do with it. Also, to inspire other's creativity.

    This will be an all encompassing thread, as I will have my current additions to the truck along with future pieces I plan on purchasing.

    I also will attribute credit to those parties who produced some of the parts and helped give me inspiration.

    I will update when I can. Pictures will be posted as I update

    --------------------

    Vehicle = 2010 Toyota Tacoma
    Body = Double Cab
    Package = TRD Off Road
    Add-ons from Dealer = remove TRD Stickers, tinted windows, iPod adapter...and that was pretty much it.


    I will do this in sections:
    1.) Current Appearance
    2.) Exterior Aesthetics
    3.) Interior Aesthetics
    4.) Electrical
    5.) Under the Hood
    6.) Suspension
    7.) Wheels & Tires


    Thanks to the following for ideas, custom parts and fabrication:
    - Andres
    - Coupe a.k.a. James
    - Tim @ txpowdercoating.com
    - Jeremy @ 4wheelparts.com
    - MJP2 a.k.a. Mike @ liberatedracing.com

    Currently:

    - TRD Off Road STOCK set up

    - Rear Leaf TSB 0305-08 was performed 2/2/11
    + The a$$ is in the air a little more but I think it gives it a little more aggressive stance.
    + They claim that it is a harsher ride, but... I actually like it. It complements the OR Bilsteins very well.

    - Steering TSB 0119-10 was performed 2/2/11
    + So far with the alignment performed the steering feels tighter and like it should have come from the factory


    Future:

    - Performance 1.25" Uniball UCAs from Camburg

    - 2.5" Coilover w/ Remote Resivoir from Fox

    - Stainless Steel Braided Brake Lines from Crown Performance

    - 3" Expedition HD Leaf Springs from All-Pro

    - 2.0" Rear Adjustable Resivoir from Fox

    - Carrier Bearing Drop from StreetTacos.com

    - JounceShock System from Light Racing

    Not yet. Still piecing together what to get next. Just received the blendmount for my Valentine 1 and new shoes. Pics to come.

    Still planning on it. Why, sup? I have already researched it a bit. What's your question?

    BUMP...for progress...

    So, I ended up removing the Vent Visors because they are just a pain. I removed the Shorty antenna because it started to rust. I will upgrade to a craven speed antenna in the near future.

    SO far:
    - Installed a set of Elite Redline Tuning Hood Struts (pics to come).
    - Purchased a 2nd set of wheels, BBS RD Truck wheels 17x8.
    - Picked up a bed divider.
    - Forged Aluminum Trailer Hitch for rust resistance.
