    Hi guys new member from Goldboro, NC(USAF), the name is Justin and I recently purchased a 2002 Tacoma SR5. It is a five lug five speed and I did some research and lifted it a bit and made it a bit more offroad worthy. My main reason for buying the truck was for a DD but I also use it as a parts runner and for hunting ,camping, and messing around. So far I have just installed a Fabtech 3" front spindle lift with 1.5" strut spacer and 2" rear shackle lift with black 15x8" 0mm offset Pacer Soft 8's and 30x9.50" BFG KOs and other small things here and there that you will notice in the pictures.

    The day I bought it

    after the mods

    Decided to black out the truck a lil bit and sold my old camper shell to purchase this one....yes it will be painted white to match the truck. I will also be building a grid type bed storage/box spring setup so I can put in a mattress and have storage.....I will post pictures of the progress once I start building it. How it currently sits.

    Did the running/turn signal DIY upgrade. This is how the lights look at night.
