    Did a lot of work on the truck this past weekend. I finally finished the install of my MidTravel kit.

    Front:
    - I added TC UCA's to go along with my ICON Ext. Travel C/O's.

    Rear:
    - I added the ICON 3 Leaf AAL along with ICON VS 2.0 Monotube rear shocks.

    Other things:
    - Cleaned up and painted the rear axle/drums
    - Painted visible part of spindles
    - Rotated tires while off
    - Adjusted driver side coilover
    - Cleaned up coilovers
    - Dropped spare tire and cleaned it/checked pressure
    - Hand wash
    - Stickers :D
    - Added a little Kicker 10" sub

    And now for pics!

    Next Up:
    Install Wheeler's extended front brake lines
    Power steering flush
    Bumpers

    Front and rear bumpers will also be added very soon. As for the rear, I currently have a custom plate bumper being made. For the front, I will be getting a Demello tube bumper from a fellow TW member in exchange for some Icon UCA's. Will post pics once the bumpers are installed!

    Just a quick update.

    Got a custom rear plate bumper made by RAT Products (isu2014). He did some awesome work! It is the EXACT bumper I have always wanted. A link to the rear bumper I purchased can be accessed here: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/1s...n-rear-off-road-bumpers-sale.html#post7370509 It's the second bumper.

    Anyways here's some pics of the bumper installed. I added my own license plate light. All I used was a small piece of angled iron from Lowes and an LED light bar with 3M tape on the back from Autozone. I wired it in to one of my original license plate lights and it works perfectly.

    image-4_6a126d990e32bef785cb04621f8ec833015e50d2.jpg

    I also got around to replacing my front window trim. It looks so much better! I noticed my gas cap was getting old and cracking. So I replaced it too.

    image_3-2_359bc20a75b6d2e6c9c3e73340bf92ba62e4410c.jpg

    Last but not least :D, I received a Demello front tube bumper from SCRunner12 as part of a trade we worked out. I just need to get an aluminum skid for it and then it will be ready to mount up! As for now, here's what it looks like.

    I am currently waiting for my Trail Gear turn signal kit to come in so I can get rid of the zip tied turn signals.

    Also added these cool shackles to my rear bumper :D
