    Alright finally getting around to doing my build. Sold my 01 2wd supercharged frontier the last week of july '11...this gem popped up on the craigslist the night after that, tacoma destiny. So I ended up with my dream truck the week after I sold the frontier. Anyways its an '03, 4x4 TRD, 136k miles on her when I got it. I wheel my truck as much as possible just nothing that puts my truck in too much risk. Tacomaworld has pretty much taught everything I know about working on my truck. I had zero experience doing any kind of auto work before I got my truck, and I've did everything myself on my truck...including installing my lift, stereo system, retrofit projectors, all maintenance, etc.

    Sketchy wheel spacers from tacomacntry, waste of $50. Went to re-tighten em the next day and when taking off a lug nut one stud snapped right off. Ordered spidertrax that night.
