    pioneer stereo, 10" rockford fosgate punchgate sub, custom box, bull bar, custom trd decals
    traded this for my down payment on my truck
    [​IMG]

    now I'm $20200 in debt with a 08 taco 50k miles on it and in real good condition.
    First day Home
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    first thing I did was put in a 10" rockford fosgate and a pioneer stereo with ipod controls. I made my sub box to fit where I can open up my seats half way to get to them.
    [​IMG]

    Put on a bull bar
    [​IMG]

    then made some decals at work
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    put 3" spacers in front and 1" in back
    [​IMG]

    Painted my wheels black
    [​IMG]

    did satoshi mod
    [​IMG]
    the grill mesh didnt come in yet so i used rabbit cage wire
    [​IMG]
    then got the mesh and put some hella 500's behind it
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    started running out of money so I did the budget mods
    fog lights on with a oem switch and DTRL
    [​IMG]
    debadged it too. I actually planned to paint them black and even took them off and painted them but liked it better off.
    [​IMG]
    and made a new decal recently. Its not turned sideways its just how it uploaded. I had this on my celica too.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Then I got a new mini taco to match the big one
    [​IMG]hahaha

    bought painted doorhandles then painted my mirrors and brackets
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    debadged my truck again even the trd decals
    [​IMG]
    and put hellas on bullbar - will post a pic in couple days when I put my mirrors on, if I had a little extra paint I was going to color match the inside of my satoshi and leave the outside chrome. Ill think about it next paycheck
    //////////////////
    Now in 2015 my build is done
    I'm not going to go up to 285's I think they'll slow out down to much. Ive got flowmaster super 44 dual exhaust and 265 75 16 cooper st's[​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    also a Yakima mount with snowboard locking mount and xd hoss wheels.

    Nice truck buddy, I'm not big on red, but I really like the look of yours so far. Definitely a good purchase.

    I agree with ya, wasn't knockin ya. Really dope truck man. I went from an 07 Scion tC to the Taco, and I don't regret it one bit. Having the truck is so much nicer than having a tiny car. Congrats :cheers:

    yea, i dont regret it either except when I get gas. haha but really, I had trouble getting my fishing rod in my celica and got stuck in snow a couple times last year and a speeding ticket of over a hundred, so i went for the 4x4

    scroll about halfway down the page to #9

    just dont cut the green wire and leave it, you have to keep it connected to both ends of plug, this was my first mistake. just run a wire from middle of green to the bent relay plug in the pic. its really easy. and drill a hole to run the wire through so it dont get pinched.
