    start out with a completely stock (other than the bfg AT ko's, tool box, and 4' firestick anntenna) 1998 toyota 4wd
    no pics of it when i bought it
    [​IMG]
    first mod was move the cb from just wedged between the seats to under a new pioneer deh-1900mp cd player and a new whip cb anntenna (cuz i broke the firestik :D)
    cost 135$
    [​IMG]
    next was a class 2 reciever hitch i got from my mom as a birthday present
    it was destroyed on jan 22 09 by a white lincon going under me in my first wreck ever
    [​IMG]
    drove it around like that for about 6 months intill i got some new 31x10.50xr15 defenity dakota M/T's
    [​IMG]
    then shortly after that i made a 1/2 inch body lift (front) and 3/8 inch body lift (rear) to help get the tailgate off the rear bumper and to level out the body lines
    [​IMG]

    then a warn transformer brushgaurd (kinda wish i got a arb instead)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    the next day i skiped school and bought some cheapo 25$ lights for it
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    black taillight mod
    [​IMG]
    ruined the cheapo 25$ lights doing this
    [​IMG]
    had to drain out all the water and rewire the lights so they will work again
    [​IMG]
    then i got a package from automatcentral
    [​IMG]
    55 watt lights, sweet
    [​IMG]
    installed
    [​IMG]

    went out and bought 9 cans of black spray paint and scraped the crap off from my frame and painted the frame, wheel wells, rear axle, and front skid plate
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    and what paint i had left over i did the BHLM (yes on a 98) and blacked out my corner lamps to mach
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    (not shure if i like the BHLM yet i might take it back appart and sand the black off)
    painted the front toyota symbol completely red
    [​IMG]
    didnt really like it like that so i went red and chrome (much better IMO)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    ***wreck #2
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    damn
    thats what happens when you forget where the wire goes for the aux plug hot all the time mod

    so i redid it the right way


    [​IMG]

    don't worry i didn't leave those wires exposed ,thats where the relay was for the aux plugs and it is now the relay for my lights i have on my bumper. (i have 2 switches for them) one switch is the hi-beam switch with the headlight and the other switch wired parallel to the high beam switch so i can run my high-beams without the lights.

    a more up to date pic of my taco:D

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    and yes that is a BHLM you see ,and yes it didnt turn out so hot :eek:

    CRAP!! :(

    [​IMG]

    at least it happened on this tire and not one of the new ones
    [​IMG]

    the other Dakota tire started leaking around the rim the day before , i guess its time for some new tires and a alignment :eek:

    had to rob 2 tires off the 86 (you get a little sneak peek of the freshly painted rims)

    [​IMG]


    and to cheer myself up i went and did a lil wheelin
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    and who says IFS cant flex???
    stuffed
    [​IMG]

    (note my awesome car ramps)

    and on with this (when i picked it up from 07NavyTaco i raced home and put it on which was at like 10pm?)

    [​IMG]

    it looked like that for a few days until i picked up some bed liner and some new mounting hardware. i took it up to my dads place (pretty much a fully equipped shop) and took it off and bed lined it, reinstalled the winch with grade 8 bolts (you can never overbuild, a great rule to go by ;)),relocate the winch control box on the firewall beside the piper motor, installed my off road lights and fixed the bent flair lead mount.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    also while i was at pops shop i redid the front cross member (for the skid) my first one didn't hold up too well. its just a piece of angle iron bolted to the frame, nothing special, but should be documented.

    [​IMG]

    new to me power steering pump because i was tired of no power steering:( (thanks yoda1999 )
    new to me 01-04 tacoma tail lights (thanks MMyota)
    rebed lined my tool box
    rebuilt passengers side locking hub (now i need the drivers side done)
    new to me headlights (thank you XxTHe FioLOxX)
    new to me plastic bumper things (thanks jrich44)
    new to me a/c control and cables (junkyard)
    new clutch master cylinder (old one died)
