    Hey everyone... After reading all the helpful info everyone has posted, I have finished building my truck & am happy to finally post some pictures.

    I really appreciate having access to all the experience from others... I started with a 2010 DCLB Magnetic Grey TRD Sport, and then I went with ICON coilovers, ARB bumper with fog lights (ARB) & IPF lights, Procomp 17X8 6 on 5.5" & 4.5" backspace with BFG 275/70R17, and Leer Cap. Everything fit quite well with just a few very minor adjustments. I installed everything myself so anyone starting out with the same components please feel free to ask questions.

    Pics Attached... thanks again!

    Thanks for the comments. I had a 2004 before (great truck with Dohahoe's & Deavers, 4:88's, ARB, 287/75/R16 BFG Mud) that I built based on the Expeditions West Tacoma. But no back seats & with a baby coming, I figured my DCLB would be a good alternative to a minivan. My wife agreed...
    I am very happy with it so far. However, I like the pics of Solus's truck & wouldn't mind going a little bit bigger. My 2004 pics attached:

    Both Tacomas look great! I like your 2010 as well. Clean, simple and functional. Not outrageously overdone...and a much cooler family hauler than a minivan!

    And I love that ARB Bumper btw! That is the exact model and color I would love to get. What did it cost you?

    Cape Hatteras actually. As for the bumper, cant remember exactly how much, but it wasnt cheap. Around $1600 I think.

    The 2010 kind of reminds me of a Transformer for some reason. I like it a lot, very tastefully done. Pretty close to what I'd like my taco to look like a little down the road.

    Your taco looks great! That old 1st gen was sweet but you will like having more space. I am adding an arb with the light kit just like yours, winch and piaas to my truck in a week or so. The light kit uses the factory harness and plugs right in, correct? How are the licghts in the bumber? as bright as the toyota ones? Is there something better?
