    I have been into tacomas since I was 10. I was lurking on all the forums and pretty much new what I wanted to do with my tacoma before I even got one. A month before I turned 16 I found the perfect one and my dad and I went to get it. Here it is when we brought it home.

    Before the next ride at Windrock I got some Donahoe 2.5'' coilovers. They made a huge difference. I got a CBI cutbed rear bumper from another member on here at the same time. He helped me put the bumper and a 1'' BL on. Thanks Logan!

    GSMTR/ECORS



    After the Windrock ride, I got some bud built skids. I had some trouble getting those on and it took me a while. But, I finally got them on. After that, I sold my rims and tires to get some new ones. I found a good deal on some tacoma sport rims painted grey so i drove 4 hours to get them. I got some 285/70/17 BFG KM2s to go along with that. Shortly after I got the rims and tires I went to the ECORS race in Auburn Alabama at the Great American Park to test them out. I didnt bring my camera so I didnt get to take any pictures. A couple weeks later I went to GSMTR at Golden Mountain Park in Sparta TN. The trails were great and I had a good time. Here are some pictures:

    Thanks! Golden MTN does have some hard trails. We had a good bit of carnage. The last day we got in a little over our heads with trail 5 and broke mirrors and dented bedsides. Someone also broke some spider gears. But it was fun! Bounty Hill is insane. I couldnt believe it when I saw it.

    Larry I cant wait to wheel with you either, just need to find an event that we both can make it to.

    theduck911: do you have a build thread or some pictures of your truck? I want to see it.

    I would agree. Thanks for the compliment. So you did a 4wd conversion? You have a build or anything? Sounds like a sweet ride!
