    100 Series LC
    After totaling my beloved '11 Tacoma, I thought I'd pick up a little something until the "3rd" gen was available to purchase. Since I think it's ugly as shit, I decided to pick something up to have fun with and hold on for a while or even keep. I've always liked the 100 series LC so I started searching up and down for one, but couldn't find one that I wanted. I almost settled for a LX470 since they are much easier to find, but prefered the classic looks of the LC. I was picky on the history, how it was maintained, number of owners, mileage, etc.

    I woke up one early Saturday morning and found one newly posted in Austin's Craiglist. I called and a lady answers. Turns out she is the original owner and had a binder full of all service/maintenance records. Everything done at the dealer and garage kept. Even had the original window sticker. Me likey. I asked for more pictures and she glady sent them to me. I liked what I saw so the GF and I drove to Austin for a closer look and ended up bringing it home.

    She babied this thing. She didn't even know what the "extra shifter thingy" was for and has never used it. :rolleyes: It works as it should, though. No rear e-locker, but it was too nice to pass up. I can always add an ARB(s) if I need to, but I doubt I'll do any type of wheelin' where I would need it.

    I don't "plan" to do that much to it and want to keep it simple.

    So far:

    *Front and back Weathertech Liners including cargo- Done

    *Ordered 100sqft of Fatmat Rattle Trap and Magamat.- On the way.
    I'm going to deaden the whole thing.

    Near future:

    *Remove the running boards.

    *Full roof rack from Gamiviti. www.gamiviti.com

    *OME 1.5-2" lift with Slee diff drop.

    *285/75/16. I'm leaning towards General Grabber AT2 and keeping the stock alloys.

    *Going to delete the fake wood grain or replace it with a darker shade since it's faded. Undecided.

    *Upgrade the stock stereo. Thinking about a Pioneer AVH-x2600BT headunit. The price is attractive and I can add a backup camera to it. Will also change out all the speakers/sub, just not sure which ones yet. I already have a JL 5 channel amp that I'll use for them.

    *We'll see what I decide on later.

    You'd like that, wouldn't you. :D


    The Weathertech liners fit beautifully as one would expect. The cargo liner however, fit like crap. I thought they had sent me one from a 4Runner my mistake. I returned it and ordered one of these.

    http://www.amazon.com/Trimmable-Cus...F8&qid=1422283426&sr=1-1&keywords=cargo+liner

    After some minor trimming, it should fit nice and tight like I want.

    My Rattletrap and Megamat arrived last night. :D

    Also ordered the rack today. Should be about 4-5 weeks before I see it.

    Been getting PM's on updates.

    Nothing big since.

    *Got a Gamiviti roof rack on.
    *Sound deadened the doors and rear cargo area including floors.
    *swapped all guage bulbs to white LEDs
    *removed OEM running boards and have sliders on order.
    *Been doing lots of PM work.
    *have a new wood grain kit dash kit going in this week. Bling bling
    *ordering a RTT soon
    *an aluminum rack hanging from the ceiling in the cargo area coming soon for more
    storage.
    *on board air and fridge coming soon.



    I've decided to just level it with 285's that are going to be ordered soon.

    Decided against a OME kit and going with FOX shocks. I think they'd be just right for what I plan on using this rig for. Probably still doing the slee diff drop.

    Sticking with the stock stereo and spending that $$ on communications.

    My goal is basically getting prepared for a trip in July called 100s in the Hills in Ouray, CO.

    I'll post pics of what I have tomorrow or so.

    Cheers

    Just wanted to share some pics from the annual 100s in the Hills this past weekend. Took place in Ouray/Telluride, Colorado. The trip was amazing and unforgettable. Riding these trails really gave me an idea of what I want to do next. Other than that, it did really well in mostly stock form.
