    Hello all,

    I took my newly modified truck to a local business parking garage for some photos, and these are a few of the best shots I got. I just got my truck last Saturday, and I have nothing but great things to say. She was bone stock from CarMax when I got her.

    Since then I've added the Ultra Type 164 16x8, wrapped in BFG 285/75's, added 1.25" spidertrax spacers, and installed the Pro Comp leveling kit w/o using the diff drop. This is a temporary lift until I fully save up for my OME kit, which I hope to have installed by the end of May.

    Plans for the truck include a Bestop Supertop, OME lift, BHLM, Satoshi Grill, Roof Rack, Demello Offroad bumpers and sliders, CB Radio, and Icon UCA's.

    Thanks for looking! :D

    10 Minutes after purchase!

    Thank you! Every car is different to photograph, it usually takes me a half hour or so you find the best angles and styles, but I think the Tacoma looks good from any angle! haha

    Thanks! Yes, I had to trim quite a bit around the inside of the fender flares and the bottom of wheel wells, but I still rub on the cab mount. I think the OME lift will take care of that. Until then, I'm making 3 point turns to park and 5 point turns to make U-turns :D

    They are 4000k HID's with 35w ballasts. Just a drop in kit.

    I'm a bit scared to take her off road with only the Pro Comp spacer lift...if anything, just some mild dirt road fun. After I install the OME lift, you wont be able to find me on pavement :D

    And I'm stuck on the mudflaps...I like the 4x4 but they're useless now since my tires stick out further. I'll try taking them off and see how I like them.

    Yes thanks. I read a writeup on the Spidertrax spacers by a team of engineers and how the factory wheels are more likely to break than the spacers. That put my mind at ease, and I went for them instead of selling a sweet set of new wheels.

    You won't miss them once you start real off road wheelin'! Get that OME and come join us at Rausch Creek in PA, we'll show you the way!

    Haha I bet! I already can't stand them...It rides worse than my old GTI on lowered coilovers...

    And I've done my fair share of wheelin', just never in the Taco ;) I can't wait though!
