    [​IMG]

    Here is what I started with:
    2009 Tacoma Access Cab 2.7l base
    Before [​IMG] After [​IMG]

    The first thing I did was get it lifted with the help of my buddy Silas and get the windows tinted Fat Bob's Suspension lift.
    [​IMG]

    Right after I put on new wheels and tires (crappy picture...better ones to come). Shout out to Silas for giving me a great deal on the new set up!

    [​IMG]

    My sound was lacking on the inside so I asked a friend of mine to hook me up over here at HDME in Albuquerque. Got a new Helix audio system with a 10" sub. Music is a problem NO MO!

    [​IMG]

    Then I decided that I wanted to officially make the truck into a Stormtrooper so I went a little crazy!! I plasti-derped my badges and took of the yota emblem, tinted the tails, and got a shorty antenna for a cleaner look.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Then my buddy Ray (Ghost) helped me do the BHLM because I didn't wanna screw anything up.

    [​IMG]

    New Satoshi grill color matched super white

    [​IMG]

    My buddy Sgt Taco hooked me up with re coloring my gauges to a white and blue set up...so clean!

    [​IMG]

    Then I finally got around to my Taco's sound... to me it sounded like a Prius and we can't have that. Got a new muffler and tip installed!

    This is the setup I want. Can I get a link explaining how to do the blue needles? It looks really good, friend!

    yeah exactly. Sand off the orange (dont use nail polish remover because it'll destroy the needle) and scuff it up... so in the daytime the needles actually look white (from the gritty sand paper) and night time they are super blue.... my buddy said painting the needles white would have the same look.

    Front Satoshi is complete.... Won't be adding any lights in the back but an LED strip around the grill so the TACOMA pops out at night..

    [​IMG]

    Finally added fenders! Looks so different!

    Boom! Shifter in place!

    Maybe 1.5 allpro spacers? I never liked the idea of them but I just put them on and the wider stance looks proper. I like them alot,

    Ah! Makes sense, I've been thinking about doing a MT build as soon as Total Chaos comes out with one, that'll do the trick
