    Picture Heavy Build Thread

    I guess I should start this thread with how my offroad addiction started. It all started with a 81 toyota pick up. I picked it up in 1996 bone stock and spent every penny my young broke butt could afford on it.
    Then I picked up a 1990 4Runner in 2000

    Then I bought the Tacoma new in 2007. Double cab off road with a manual transmission. A few weeks after buying it I put OME 885 springs on the stock struts with an aal in the back, rode like poop, went around with stock tires and wheels for a year and a half.
    Here's what it looks like today. Just put on an AirFlow snorkel. 29 July16

    Nice truck! Did you put the rubber edging on the fenders after you cut them? Kinda hard to tell in the pic.

    The Kings have a higher spring weight so you don't need as much preload.
