    The build up!




    Bone stock. The only "mods" at first was a steering wheel cover and weathertech window deflectors. Added on a T-Rac to add some hauling capability...ended up never taking the thing off.
    [​IMG]




    Stickers add 20+ HP/torque, right?

    [​IMG]





    Those headlight assemblies just weren't cutting it. They began to turn yellow no matter how much I kept them waxed and used Meguire's cleaner on em...

    Next mod- Diamond pattern clear headlight assemblies/ Clear corner / clear turn sigs.

    Stock wheeling. Makalawena trail on the Big Island.

    As an added mention... Michelin LTX AT2 tires are great all terrain tires.

    Went to a halloween block party, and when I came back... Stopped all mods for awhile to make sure everything was put back together. "Like a good neighbor, state farm is there! With a new ignition!"
    [​IMG]





    I wasn't really ready for suspension upgrades yet, I just wanted to make her look "unique"

    Replaced stock tails with smoked LEDs
    [​IMG]


    Suspension time:

    Bilstein 5100 shocks (F/R)

    Toytec/Eibach 3" lift coils

    Toytec 2" Add-a-leaf

    Toytec 1" differential drop
    (Thanks DOWNSOUTH MOTORSPORTS and TOYTEC LIFTS!)
    [​IMG]




    My friend's parents own a local auto shop, so I decided to give them business and have them do the install for me. Took her home but ! noticed something was wrong with the ride immediately. The next morning I realized they installed the 5100's set at 2.5, on top of the coils. Don't do this.
    [​IMG]




    Took her back, they quickly apologized and changed them to "0"
    [​IMG]
    How she sat afterwards.



    Had the sudden realization that I was neglecting to add wheels/tires...235/75r15 looks small stock..and now with a 3" lift...I began the search for rubber.

    [​IMG]
    A friend of mine had been trying to sell his tires for awhile. After the lift I decided I needed to go bigger than 235/75r15, so I bought them from him.

    Helo HE791's in gloss black wrapped in 265/75r16 BFG KM2 Mud Terrains



    [​IMG]




    After a search for lug nuts (Something I neglected) She had some new shoes.
    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    Added some white LED's in the parking lights. Blinker is still amber for safer turning (looks more legal).
    Also added a 5% tint strip up top, TW decal, and 35% tint on the sides


    How she sits now (12/10/11):

    Wheeled like that for awhile, then
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I loved my toytec AAL, but with the amount of wheeling that I do, an AAL on an already-sagging stock leaf pack wasn't the best idea.
    I was also running the original 5100's from DSM, before the bottom-out incident, so mine were stock length.
    They needed to be switched out





    as of 6/12/12

    Swapped the rear suspension.
    All pro Expo leaf springs
    All Pro extended SS brake lines
    10" bilstein 5150's
    OME Exhaust relocate
    B.A.M.F 5.5" BPV relocate

    Waiting on a Beefed Taco Carrier Bearing drop to install All Pro 1.5" shackles.

    Then I decided that I had the money... I was going full mid travel.
    Installed:

    All pro tubular chromoly upper control arms w/1" uniballs
    Fox extended travel coilovers w/ 14" 600lb eibach coils

    Did all the work myself, to start learning how to wrench...
    If you swap the front joints...GET A PULLER. What three hours of hammering couldn't do, a puller did in less than two minutes

    Nope, as long as you have the bulb sizes there's a variety of different bulbs you can get. I just put amber's in mine so that they'd look more legal at night, but I'm going to switch to hyper whites soon

    http://www.sylvania.com/ConsumerProducts/AutomotiveLighting/LampReplacementGuide/

    lets you know the bulb sizes-

    If I understand metric tire sizes correctly, your basically running 31's? Right?

    Im bolting your same suspension set up on next weekend, I currently have 32's and I want 33 Km2's. Those look great on your truck, it doesnt look like a 31 but I could be wrong.

    Anyway, nice truck! Where did you purchase your bulbs at and how much?

    Sorry they took so long, been busy the past week....But they're finally up and on! I'll move these up top to the first post soon.
    Edit: Moved pics up top

    These ones are 31.5x10.5, so they're exactly in the middle of what you have and what you asked :cool: So far, I'm loving these KM2s. Quieter than the Yoko M/T's I used to have.

    I got my bulbs on ebay for around $60. I've heard DDM tuning is a better place for cheap/reliable HID's though.
