    The Story:

    Bought the truck on July 12th, 2010. It was purchased at West Covina Toyota. Here it is the day I bought it. I was 19 at the time, and needed something that I could take to college with me and not have to worry about it too much. (I had a BMW X5 before that, I hated that piece of crap.) I am attending college at the University of Montana.

    Here is another stock photo of it behind my apartment up at college a few months later:

    [​IMG]

    Here it is again, this was my first time offroading EVER. I was sooooo impressed and amazed. I had no idea what I had bought until then.

    [​IMG]

    There is a big gap in photos at this point unfortunately. I did the map light mod and a few other little things after this one ^.

    Here she is after the lift, exhaust, and new tires. I installed the lift by myself in the snow behind my apartment. I took a super long warm shower afterwards and my hands were still cold when I got out. I swear I will never do something like that again.

    [​IMG]

    Here is another offroading shot. The antenna is a red 4' Firestik. I swear all of my friends said go with a 4' but they all have 3's so mine sticks way up. It is a good way to find the truck in the parking lot though. Also, it is on a spring so it can hit things but it is so tall that it waves all over the place. It is a hilarious sight, especially on the freeway.

    [​IMG]

    A couple of my buds took me offroading for my bday. It was a really sweet day all in all actually. I got stuck pretty bad here. It took us one hour and a 6400 pound F150 to get it out. I got cocky, end of story. Was hilarious though and will never forget it. Great bday.

    I got bored one night at like midnight so my girlfriend and I went mall crawling. Here is a shot just to throw another pic in this thread:

    [​IMG]

    Here is another shot from a really beautiful spot up here in Montana called Rock Creek. These are the vehicles I offroad with most. This shot was taken around 3/25/11 roughly.

    [​IMG]

    Here she is as of 4/30/2011:

    I'll keep this thread updated. Thanks for looking, I hope you enjoyed it!

    Haven't posted an update on here in awhile. It is pretty much the same at the moment. This winter I will be putting on wheel spacers, trex angry eyelids, and getting an ipod adapter as well. Ill post pics after all that.

    Yes. Will post pics soon. I got the eibachs and 5100's on but the place that put them together for me lost my top plate spacers that was going on top of them so I probably won't ever see those again dammit...

    I am ordering all pro 1.5" wheel spacers today and a new key fob too. I will throw on the spacers, get an alignment, and take a few pics and post em up for everyone.

    The other issue I am dealing with is that the rear needs 5100's too, it is way stiffer than the front and it kind of sucks. I have a long bed so there is some time in between the front and rear hitting any given bump and so you hit the front and its soooooo nice now and then the back hits and jolts you up and forward and you just get frustrated lol...
    I can't complain though, its my own fault for not going this route the first time....damn you spacer lifts and your cheap pricetag!!!!!!
