    So.... Giant update. Its been a while, so here we go.

    Ill start with my new bumper, same as my old one but i can weld better and i took my time on this one, and addeda hitch.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Its been more re inforced now, just no pictures of it, tows both my quads on the trailer no problem! With a 12" hitch... lol.

    After that, I made a temp front bumper out of some 1.5x1.5 tubing
    [​IMG]

    Then bought myself a sundown sa 10 and made a box for it, ported tuned to 35 hz.
    [​IMG]

    Then i ordered my lift and tires, among other things.

    Ended up with,

    Eibach adjustable coilovers, 1" diff drop, ubolt flip kit, allpro 3" springs, 5150s in the back, BPV bracket, timbren bumpstops, and im sure im forgetting a few other things. I bought the trail gear front bumper and rock sliders (which ive hacked up to make my own with) and some 33x12.5x15 duratracs, and 15" procomp wheels, and some 1.25" allpro spacers. And i re did my exhaust with a magnaflow, and 2.5" tundra tailpipe made into a rear axle dump with a 3" tip. And some leds tails and smoked corners.
    Tails

    Just after i got the lift and bumpers in
    [​IMG]

    First drive :)
    [​IMG]

    First climb
    [​IMG]

    First trip out :) did better than all the chevys out there! lol

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Rear suspension and exhaust [​IMG]

    100 miles in and first screw [​IMG]

    150 miles and came out of a trail to this [​IMG]

    Second trip out (one of 5 trucks in town to make this loop)
    [​IMG]

    Made it out of this myself, just stopped for a pic
    [​IMG]

    31" duratrac on the yota, normally 40" swampers lol
    [​IMG]

    Cleaned up after the trip, well half cleaned (6 hours in) And added the light hoop and light bar onto the bumper
    [​IMG]

    Got my Rigids on
    [​IMG]

    My project 91 off to the side, regret selling that thing every damn day.
    [​IMG]
    Posed with the buggies
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Start of my sliders
    [​IMG]

    Out camping
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Made it into the car show! Only two lifted trucks....
    [​IMG]

    Towing for the first time!
    [​IMG]

    Putting a custom jack mount on the trailer (for a customer)
    [​IMG]

    NOW for the interior stuff... picked up some CNC racing seats
    [​IMG]

    Got one in the truck
    [​IMG]

    Then both
    [​IMG]

    Now for the fun part... I had no seats in the back, so i decided to make good use of my now useless old front seats, and put them in the back. SO heres pictures of the whole process. Im so happy with how it all turned out!!

    Got everything cleared out, mocking up placement

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Getting the seats notched out and rails kind of in place

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    First time with both seats in
    [​IMG]

    Seat rail all tacked up, it mounts in all 6 factory locations.

    [​IMG]

    And after that i forgot to take any more pictures.. whoops. But i decided i wanted a new sub box since my old one looked stupid in between the seats, so i started mocking things up.

    [​IMG]

    Stopped and got a tattoo for my grandma who passed away in march
    [​IMG]

    Back to the sub box, got it framed up
    [​IMG]

    Port in
    [​IMG]

    Finished!
    [​IMG]

    Now I filled in all the screw holes, and cleaned up the corners with some filler.

    [​IMG]

    Once that dried, i sanded it all down and bedlined it

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Fits in perfect, and sounds amazing. I love the look of it, finally have a function interior again!

    [​IMG]

    Got seat belts out of a 99, and bolted them to the seats, me (6'2") and my girlfriend (5'6") both fit back there comfortably, and with headroom. I love it.


    And now for the random pictures ive taken along the way!!

    Some shots on the pipeline

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    New duratracs on my dads taco (my old ones)

    [​IMG]

    First time stuck with the lift, well, first time I needed to get pulled out with the lift i should say.

    [​IMG]

    Random picture out on the trail
    [​IMG]

    Me and vic on my truck, getting some pictures for my mom.

    [​IMG]

    And thats all so far. Still planning some 35's among a few other things, but super happy with it for now!!

    I want to thank 45acp for helping me with the bumper last november, and giving me some inspiration with his truck to start mine!

    Re-located my rear shocks today, made the ride so much smoother, and way more articulation in the rear, also added the trail spikes to my bumper, and painted my corner lights black instead of chrome!
