    Okay so, i have a 2010 barcelona red tacoma v6 sport 4x4:cool:

    How the truck looks as of today:
    7D88F164-592A-49D2-95F9-6539612A8DE4_zps_c6e1fc4f2c9035972a5a57bb16bcd7dc44f10c4c.jpg





    It didnt take long for me to start modding the truck

    List of mods:

    First thing i did was buy a k&n cold air intake and satoshi grill mod

    Then i bought a bullbar and a couple light for some gnar offroading:cool:


    One of my buddies got some HID's for his ranger so i picked some up too
    fde150d3_4d87f7760f26259ac114f74274a4c35eeb264331.jpg
    I bought some 5100's and new tires n wheels. I thought i would b happy after that haha, this website makes want want want

    I went out to stoddard wells and realized after riding with a couple buddies what i wanted for my truck (even if it took a year or so)
    62e1f498_24e45372a72324588ff1f6e55a9b5fd635a2c293.jpg
    My girlfriends dad runs a performance exhaust shop and hooked me up with a free magnaflow exhaust

    I picked up a set of fiberwerx front fenders and color matched them

    I realized LT was not in my budget, atleast until im getting some decent hours
    and have some coin saved :p So i went with the icon stage 3 set up :cool:

    The bullbar wasnt doin it and i saw that anthony (shocktaco) was selling one of his bumpers, so i hit him up and he delivered it me.

    unfortunately the bumper was kind of butchered by me and my dad, it was built for a 2wd so i had to make it fit, although it is a nice looking bumper the structural integrity was sacrificed so i'm having a local shop fab one, ill have pics most likely on friday

    I dont have any pics right now haha, when i get my truck back ill take a bunch, so far i only have the icon uca and the 2.5" extended travel coil over, they are a huge difference from the 5100's but i dont have much to compare with. Icon is supposed to making a new rear resi shock to go along with my coilover up front, so im just waiting on that. I also have a set of avid offroad sliders sitting at my dads shop all tacked together, i just havent had the time to get them on haha, i just got back from san diego and im broke cuz i just payed for my classes :/
