    Since everyone has been giving me crap for not having a build thread...I present to you...my build! :D


    EPIC BUILD THREAD


    As it sits currently

    Original sale ad photo. Bought it back in 2006? 2007? for $6,500 with 126k miles. 1998 4x4 TRD Extended cab 3.4L V6 automatic.
    [​IMG]

    Then I got bored and attempted to photoshop what it would look like with a lift and bigger tires haha
    [​IMG]

    First thing I did when it got home was take off the bug deflector because it was half broken off and the next day I took apart the entire interior and cleaned and shampooed it. I have a video of that process but I'm a little shy to post it because it was me back in high school LOL.

    Then came the lift. The front is the 3 inch Toytec Adjustable Coil Over's and on the rear is the 3 inch All-Pro 3 inch Rear Suspension Kit. We also cleaned up the rear axle and repainted it.

    At this point we had a big trip planned to go to the Moab Easter Jeep Safari. Since I didn't have tires yet, we stole the tires off of my dad's 2002 Ivan Stewart Tundra. These are some pics showing the size difference.

    Moab!

    Then a little while down the road...Trail Gear Sliders! This was my first time using them.

    [​IMG]

    At some point we took the set of 16 inch Ivan Stewart wheels off my dad's Tundra and he got shiny new ones and I got the beat up uglier ones haha. But here they are all pretty.
    [​IMG]

    During a trail run on this obstable I put a little ding in the corner of my bed. That's why I decided I needed a rear bumper. So then came my CBI Rear Tube Bumper that I picked up in Wyoming for I recall $200. It had a bit of surface rust and took a while to clean but turned out really good. I later added a "flip up" license plate to hide the hitch in the center.

    [​IMG]

    Then on a later trail run I did a "faceplant" onto a rock which caused those little white brackets on the inside corners of the front bumper to break. So I had a "frowny face" bumper for a while. lol. I ended up getting my Trail Gear stinger bumper for a Christmas gift!

    Thanks everyone! I need to work on finishing updating the first post and keeping it updated lol. Touched up my bedliner with some plastidip today. They did such an awful job on it I wish the previous owner would of had them redo it. They completely missed some spots. But now it looks pretty good.
