    Super Charger - done, love it.

    This kit is next - Fox Coilover shocks with Total Chaos Upper Control Arms & Rear Shocks.

    Bumpers - Aluminess bumpers are all aluminum construction, powder coated with a locking storage compartment. The front bumpers are set up to accommodate a winch. In addition, there are tow hooks, a brush guard and built-in light mounts. The rear bumpers have a locking storage compartment and optional swing arms that can accommodate a spare tire and one of our utility boxes.

    OK I am a tad over the amount stated... but thats the top of the list stuff.

    Gotta say: Been looking at Littlebro 5, sander1036, 01TacOma, Blackdawg, and a few others tacos. And I'm liking alot of what they done to there trucks. Thanks guys for putting up pics and your build pages, Deffently helped me out and gave me motivation to try and do alot of it myself. I'll have some help from buddies who are more mechanicaly inclined than I am.

    If any you guys wanna pitch in any ideas or problems you came along while instaling your Mods for your 1st Gens, let me know. Again thanks for the info.

    If I had a few thousand dollars... I'd throw it in the bank and wait for good deals to show up on craigslist and scoop them. Most of the parts I have on my truck I got for a steal locally.

    Ya, That would be the smart way.:D But once I get home from my 4th deployment over here, I'm gonna wanna drink a Good American beer, walk barefoot in the grass, and beef up my yota, so I can play with her.
