    Heres my build thread.

    I have a 2000, 4x4, 3.4L V6, SR5, Extra cab, Toyota Tacoma.

    So here is how she sits right now:

    IMAG0482_zpscfbe33e1_ec82a8f5377c740618c7ad0508678167d6ce7dc0.jpg

    I bought it completely stock and built it from here:
    fonetransfer382_d71be869e2f30c72659d7d9fd6f2f7e7710755c7.jpg

    First was a flowmaster 40 series.
    IMAG0097_b19aaaca04f97f8e874035411aa411e6013f6d1c.jpg

    I got a CB radio for the Tacoma world peeps

    Midland radio mounted on center console:
    IMAG0099_7f19518cddf63458647a9df073d0921b24a67b69.jpg

    Firestick 4’ antenna mounted up.
    IMAG0103_0e769be1e6ece1fd160a9dc241c515135f742e6a.jpg
    Then I got some 35W 8000k Hids.

    Stock: fonetransfer398_0a398b3046afc30be54b4f4bda12da74b02066da.jpg
    Hids: fonetransfer415_adcaf4c2f6ad1dd4aa66bad857edb44884b8873d.jpg

    When I decided to lift it, I didnt know about suspension so I got rancho 9000XL 2.75 in. lift front shocks, and rancho 9000XL rear shocks.
    IMAG0106_489f31190335e2857a03686dc544725ebc4efd2a.jpg




    right about here doug talked me into getting some OMD leaf packs. 2 chevy s-10 flatbed springs added to it.
    IMAG0109_d47d4dcfb473b813bf56d8895d738a92a85228b4.jpg

    i got about 3.5" from it so had to get extended bilstein 5125's.
    IMAG0096_7b6533ca5aafe95dcd24de8623326b3883e97313.jpg



    Next i bought a 500w JL Audio amp from my friend.
    IMAG0101_13868a49d798d1ce6f8898fa8fa13c23c2ac83fc.jpg

    And a 10" sub and box off another friend for $20, sub was a piece of shit, upgraded later.
    IMAG0100_676d1f904e28bc6b16fec5726670ffae7cd45f98.jpg

    Then the new tires!! Cooper Discoverer STT mud terrains. 32x11.5x15
    IMAG0162_1fcf6cc51080ae1cbd60bf49fd42e9e2df5f0d93.jpg

    Some flexing pics with the new tires.

    OMD leafpack travel
    IMAG0237_1371e2c3700518557d2b420e34d4cce065dbca97.jpg

    Then we had socaltacomas 1st mod day at my house. Engage sponsored it, greg (gregero) got his front end long traveled. Had a total of 24 trucks up and down the street.
    IMAG0217_d09c6d0f1d2e420932a1e8acef7f01cd3029cf01.jpg

    IMAG0219_135a043676c14aa427a1b4fbe0ec5cc8573af47a.jpg
    I had my sound system hooked up. And a kenwood radio put in.
    IMAG0223_a8656cec595a22f79e8b31990be53846889a8778.jpg
    I mounted the cb up front to reach it easier.
    IMAG0259_92ab8494c0475a3e05a84bb1ffdddaf4463c68e9.jpg

    Mounted my maglite flashlight to the truck.

    IMAG0208_10dbfb67790f5aec81202efd02647312c2dc77e8.jpg

    Finally found a deckplate and did the deckplate mod (duct tape was temporary):
    IMAG0261_7c99d712eb66e69460b4b335fbbaf047ec813d94.jpg



    Then Madtaco sold me his bed bar, and got 2 auxilary fog lights from pepboys and mounted and wired it up in about half an hour.
    IMAG0255_d903a3ee5bd13d4106eca213fdea0f2002fac8ed.jpg
    IMAG0257_7bcba35dc346de2da0ca56a7ae8580f68bdd1690.jpg

    Got all pro used 1" uniball uppers.
    IMAG0294_a72e0c564026ba66101ad1b8b1da7e41513cb0ce.jpg

    I love them. I heard they are really durable and last longer then most mt's. Ive only put about 3000 miles on them. Its weird they are quiet for the first 250 miles then they start "whooping"

    Wow dude Im sorry for the troubles. I've never had any issues with them. Neither did Brent and quite a few others. Maybe it was the Subwoofer choice. They stopped making Audiobahn from what I gather. You could always get Kickers. They would be my next choice.

    Have fun the mid travel. I still need a few things to finish up my Mid-Travel.

    Ya they seemed like a good company too i think its just audiobahn messing sonicelectronics up.

    Ya kickers are good and pretty cheap from what i hear.

    Ya my front definately needs something better then shitty rancho shocks and stock coils.
