    Toytec/Billistein coilovers, allpro leafs, OME greasable shackles, allpro ubolt flip kit, Billistein 5100's in rear.
    I figured i should finally start one of these, and when i was texting my friend progress pictures of the truck one by one last night I finally decided to do it.

    I have a lunar mist 04 Double cab trd, bought it bone stock back in 08 when we moved back from BC with only 23k kilometers on it. Finally got my license in the summer of 2009, and bought the truck off my dad.

    My first mods were just little stuff like i added a sub and Alpine headunit with kenwood speakers and an alpine 600 powering them. Then added a bigger sub, but never really started doing anything else until i found this site probably a few months ago. Im just out of highschool and starting an apprenticeship at Toyota right away (that went to shit) so now im going to welding school lol, so it should become less of a broke ass teenager build soon :rolleyes:

    Exhaust:
    Had it straight piped for a while, but now it has a magnaflow 13216

    Tires and Suspension:
    Eibach 3" adjustable coilovers,
    Allpro 3" springs,
    5150's in the back,
    Ubolt flip kit,
    Timbren bumpstops.

    33x12.5x15 Duratracs

    Audio:
    1 10" Sundown SA 10 run by a Jackhammer 1200 watt amp
    4 Kenwood 6.5's run by a Alpine 600 watt amp
    Alpine CDA-105L Headunit

    Interior Mods:
    Custom Bucket seats with sub box centre console in back
    Racing seats in front
    Center console bedlinered
    Arm rest and dash carbon fiber wrapped
    Blue and Red LEDS in gauges
    Some painted accents on door handles
    Peachy peach air freshener :rolleyes:

    Exterior/Lights:
    Century Cap Color matched, now sitting behind my garage
    Trail Gear front bumper
    Custom rear bumper with hitch
    Grille, under headlight filler pieces, and mirrors bedlined
    35 watt 8K HIDS
    Retrofitted Headlights
    21s Blitzpro
    Rigid Duallys
    Satoshi (kinda?) made from flooring mesh
    Smoked Side markers
    Led Tail lights
    Windows tinted 5 in back 20 up front
    Bug deflector removed
    All chrome bedlined!
    De badged
    Fender flares... ripped off
    Rear bedsides bedlined (damn rocks)

    Thats all I can think of for now.. so heres some pictures!

    Dont get turned off by the first page pictures.. It looks better now.

    Realising the downsides of no fender flares... but loving them removed!

    Worked on the truck a bit yesterday. Cleaned up my brakes a bit after my axle seals going, bedlined the skid plates and rear bumper, painted my rear hubs black, and also got my bay at work set up!

    They're modify street off eBay. 100 bucks shipped for high and low beams! They've worked awesome so far. Light up the trails nicely :)
