    This is going to be my first truck build... I originally had a 2004 Prerunner Doublecab but traded it in for an 05 6spd :cool: with only 35,xxx miles.

    This is how it looked when I drove it off the lot. Horrible rims. :eek:

    [​IMG]
    First mod was getting some OEM rims back on there... Also swapped in a shorty antenna.

    [​IMG]
    The paint isn't perfect... if you look closely at the rear fender flare, there's a huge slash on it (got it like that). I'm currently looking for a replacement if anyone reading this knows of one for sale.

    [​IMG]
    Here's a closer look at it:

    I have lots of future plans for it... Right now I have a set of rims/tires on the way as I type this.

    Rims/tires:
    18x8.5 -19 offset Rays Gram Lights 57-sx Pro with titanium lips
    Firestone Destination M/T 285/65/18

    Still deciding on which lift kit to get, but I'm leaning towards the Toytec Ultimate lift and Light Racing UCAs.

    I had to do a lot of reading... it's like starting over with all these terms - having come from the Honda world. This was my previous build - a 2000 Honda Civic SI which was featured in the September 2010 issue of Honda Tuning Magazine.

    I'll update with more pics as I progress along the build. Thanks for looking!


    FINALLY GOT MY LIFT AND WHEELS ON:

    Thanks man, I actually found these here on Tacomaworld. They are definitely one of a kind... I haven't seen any other Taco out there with the titanium lips. They BROKE my bank account! haha :bananadead:

    Good looking ride and after seeing the picture of the hotels in the background I thought that it looked very familiar; I've seen quite a bit of Guam and love the trips there.

    Yea, I do. Hard to find brand new oem ones... don't really want to go with aftermarket lights.

    Also - I'm still rubbing on full/sharp/u-turns. blehhhh :rolleyes:

    Did some reading up on Revotec (Eagle Eyes) headlights and they seem pretty good.

    I had a set of Eagle Eyes on my Civic a long time ago and they were pretty decent... so I went ahead and ordered a set for my truck. :D
