    Well I just edited the hell outta this because it was filled with old data and such haha, but these are the pics of my truck in the early stages.

    1st pic: I bought the truck on 3/26/2010 with 28000 miles on it. Unfortunately I do not have the original picture so I had to go off google and find the closest thing possible to what it looked like when I bought it (completely stock). However the next pictures are all my own.

    2nd pic: I bought the billet grill from Sun Valley Bumper here in Vegas from Sean for a very good price (not gonna say in fear that you will hunt him haha) and got that installed. Unfortunately I DID NOT KNOW about the Satoshi mod so my grill is doomed for that mod seeing as they cut off most of the plastic on the inside when installing it.

    3rd pic: Nothing special just some 225/70/r15 Yokohamas that got me places, I currently ride with 31x10.5 Falken's which are just awesome!!! :D

    4th pic: I was incredibly lazy and very inexperienced and decided to play the safe card and buy the Black Housing Euro Headlights from k2. Still a BHLM but I just did it in a lazy manner.

    5th pic: Just another one of my truck haha

    NONE OF THESE IMAGES ARE RECENT!!! Keep going through the build to see what else I've done to my taco! :D

    Looks good so far, It's nice to see another Taco thats exactly like mine. I haven't even seen to many on here.

    I can't wait to see how the lift looks I plan on doing the ready lift and bilstein's on my Tacoma when I have the money.

    What rims where you exactly going for I am finding it hard to find rims I really like so far I am pretty much thinking about doing the American Racing Razors with 245/75 or 255/75 Bf All terrains.

    I think putting in fog lights really helps out the whole front end. But if you are planning on getting a new bumper then there is no point.

    Im thinking about American Eagle Wheels Series 185 or Pro Comp 8089 (AEW is cheaper)
    And Depending on the space I have in my wheel well after the lift determines the bumper style, If I have a good amount of room ill keep the stock bumper and put in some fog lights in, im also debating on weather I should Color Match my grille shell

    The Geolanders are great, if you don't like the stock tire but you don't have enough money for the nitro grapplers or BFG's I would recommend the Geolanders above anything else, they do great in the dirt and in the snow also the on road performance is nice and smooth even though they are all terrain :D

    they did very well in the mud for me. I parked my truck in a pot on a trail I always got stuck on and the tires just kept truckin along when i got moving again.

    Yeah the Geolanders are great, im planning to upgrade to a bigger tire and different rim once i have the money, i dont worry too much about my interior but if you know anyone that sells good looking seat covers for bench seats PM me, im trying to keep the gray but get a different look on it maybe a little bit of black with a red trim, fully black seat covers are just a bad idea here seeing as it reaches well above 100 degrees in the summer
