    Wow I think I am a little too late on this thread, but I guess its better to start the logging now then never. I bought the truck in November 2010 bone stock with 65,000 miles and have thoroughly enjoyed building the car with my own taste. In the past years I have built mainly import cars (Celica, Supra, and 370z) so building the taco was something new to me and I felt like a kid at a candy store in the new scene. In the time span from November til now I have added the following:



    Exterior:
    -TRD Sport Hood
    -Custom Carbon Fiber Scoop Insert
    -LED Smoked Tail lights
    -Smoked 3rd Brake Light
    -Tint
    -Pop&Lock
    -EGR In Channel Visors
    -OEM Roof Rack
    -OEM Bed Extender
    -Rocky Road Outfitters Supersliders

    -Color Matched Sleeper Eyelids
    -Yellow Tinted OEM fog lights
    -Satoshi Grill with Mesh
    -Black Front Valence
    -Black side Tacoma Emblems + shaved tailgate emblems
    -TRD valve stem & license plate caps
    -Clear Bra on Hood Scoop and Inner Fenders
    -Carbon fiber license plate
    -Stubby Antenna
    -Rocky Bike Mounts (2)
    -Redline Tuning QuickLIFT Plus
    -Avid Light Bar (powdercoated black)


    Interior:
    -Custom Carbon Fiber Shifter Console w/ gloss black trim
    -TRD AT Shift Knob (Discontinued)
    -Custom Wet Okole Covers (with 3-way adjustable heaters)
    -Weathertech Digital Floor Mats (black)
    -Pioneer AVIC U310-BT
    -White LED Conversion: Map/Dome/LP/Reverse/Parkinglights/GearShifter
    -Shackle Hitch w/ Master Lock Pin


    Wheel Suspension:
    -17x9 XD Addicts
    -285/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers
    -Front Coilover Kit:
    -Billy 5100 shock
    -Eibach Coil Springs (powdercoated red)
    -Toytec Aluminum top mount
    -Toytec driver side 1/4" plate
    -Billy 5100 Rear Shocks
    -Toytec AAL


    Engine:
    -TRD Exhaust System
    -TRD Cold Air Intake (Discontinued) with Custom TRD Engraved Cover
    -Coming soon SC


    I know I am missing some stuff but I will add more when I can remember. I wish I tracked everything earlier but I will add new pics as new mods are in.

    Hey guys, thanks for the kind words! I really appreciate it..

    Unfortunately I will be with family in OC this Easter weekend so no go for the meet.. definitely the next one though..

    I had the insert custom made.. I bought an extra new scoop and sent it to a get wrapped.. overall costed a pretty penny, but its different thats for sure!


    Ride will be having a slight makeover soon.. Already took out the yellow fog light in grill - going with something different or fog light less.. I am selling my smitty side steps looking for sliders like demello or bolt ons.. lmk if you hear of anything!

    Also, if you know anyone selling an avid front.. PM me haha!

    just getting started : (
    Good looking truck!

    What are you looking to spend? I have a brand new/raw avid light bar with 3 light tabs sitting in my garage, just picked it up from Arizona a couple weeks ago and was only mounted for the ride home... might be willing to work a deal that includes those steps & yellow lights you don't want anymore, lmk.

    Just got the new Wet Okole seat covers installed today. They are amazing (except for the smell which will go away hopefully in a couple days).. Seat warmers work great I can't wait to actually use them when it starts to get cold again haha

    Here are some pics I took on the phone today:

    Yeah, they are the rocky road super sliders, got a killer deal from a local member here. Love the, so far! For more details http://www.rocky-road.com/tacomarockrail.html


    Thanks man! I sprayed the fogs with the krylon stained glass Can (orange cap but sprays yellow with 2-3 coats). Then I had my mobile painter professionally clear coat them, but any clear coat will do. I may get the sliders sprayed with a liner later on, but the original owner powder coated these black and they are still in great condition so I will keep it like this for a while.

    Thank you sir..

    I got the seat cover during the last Wet Okole group buy... The roof rack is the OEM roof rack you can purchase at your local dealer.. and the TRD intake is the 1st edition discontinued intake plus a custom fiberglass engraved smoked cover I got done by a member on here!
