    This build has since been sold... *cry* ... But hopefully in the near future, I will be able to afford starting on my new Tacoma!!


    Well...I finally decided to start up my build thread! Here's the rundown: I bought my white 2002 double cab prerunner in 2008. Paid it off in 2009 after a deployment to Iraq and, not soon afterwards, found the addiction called "Tacoma World".

    Updated! Installed my lift today! It took us about 4 hours to install and it looks sweet!

    Didn't put the UCA's on...yet...but the alignment kept pretty well and I may be able to run without replacing them. Front is pointed slightly up (which I don't like...) but a plate bumper might do the trick in leveling it out.

    Let me know if anything looks funky (which it might)...Never done much with suspension before.

    Nice! Big powder coating fan.
    Trucks looking good.
    I was just down in your side of the state and there sure are great places to go off road there. I visit once a quarter, looking forward to more random trails out there.
