    So Im finished throwing money at my truck making mods for awhile and thought Id take a momment to share with my fellow tacoholics.

    Starting with my latest addition of 17" American Racing Cannon wheels with 265 70 R17 BFG All Terrains.

    [​IMG]

    I went with 32"s to avoid a bunch of Cutting and impacting gas mileage.

    Sorry no more pictures with the wife but was hoping youd comment on the truck. Constructive Critasizm accepted. Should have just sucked it up and gone with the 33"s?

    Anyways here is my lift.

    [​IMG]

    Im really happy with this combination. The coil overs add 3+ inches, combined with with the Total Chaos control arms the ride is nice On and Off road. Not shown here, I also put in a Add-a-Leaf and Fox racing shox in the back. Its a little stiff back there.


    To help with HP's and Torque. I put in the URD MAF Calibrator, Custom Exhaust and Thorley Headers.

    [​IMG]

    You can see the shiny new headers under the wheel well.


    The sound system was my own project.

    [​IMG]

    I believe installation is the most important part of a high quality sound. The Picture is just the control unit, but I also installed 3 amps, 4 mids, 4 tweets, and 2 10's.


    [​IMG]

    OK lets hear it what do you guys think? comments? Suggestions?

    That's an interesting bull/light bar in that first pic though more attractive than others I've seen in the past.

    Your suspension mods and headers make me drool.

    Great looking truck - you've obviously dumped some coin on your mods and the suspension setup is first rate. The AR Cannon's look sick and really work well with the BFG AT's. Did you go with the Thorley long tube headers or short? I'm thinking of going with the long headers plus an O2 simulator sensor to avoid false readings.

    Hey Thanks guys!!!

    To Be honest I don't know If I have long tube or short tube headers. I didnt even know they made two different types for these trucks. A buddy of mine has a business connection with a muffler shop. I left my truck in their hands and they did the headers and custom built me a high flow exhaust system with a flow master muffler. I do know that I have no check engine lights. I do though recomment the URD unit though.

    Im using the Image Dynamics 10" subs as suggested by TacoTunes. Im using their enclosures as well. Can you send me some more info on your trail run?

    Im sure your right Im already looking at a new grill. still gotta pay off my lift though. Somewhare I have pictures of my stereo during installation, Ill try to find and post them. The way I have it now is pretty much completely hidden. Amps are under seats and cooled by the A/C if needed. Speakers are installed behind door panels replacing the stock stuff. I tried to make it as difficult as possible to get to it or see it from the outside. Even my rear seats dont fold down any more You have to take them out to get to the woofers.

    Thanks, yeah I like the bull bars as they can double as a rear door decoration as shown in the last pic. The problem though is that it was my most expensive mod, and requires endless maintenence.

    Good looking truck.

    Curious about the exhaust. Did they run new pipes basically stock routing but new stainless or just tie into the stock plumbing and cut in the new muffler farther back? One muffler single in, dual out? Can you tell a big difference with the headers?

    I was done again with debadging the tailgate today. I have been wanting to be done with the headers you installed to match the done muffler installed two weeks ago. ;)
