    ***New Pics up***I finally picked up my 05 Tacoma wednesday. I drove about 525 mile round trip to get it. I've been ordering parts all week for it so we'll see in a days time, the transformation. Here's what I ordered.

    265/75/16 duratracs
    konig counter steer 16x8
    5100's/AAL
    Access bed cover
    headlight housings
    Alpine touch screen navi HU
    Painted grill (didn't actually order this. I'm at the mercy of my best friend who's a painter, so we'll see if that can actually get done by next weekend)

    Here is a pic of how it sits right now. 100% stock (minus removing the mud flaps yesterday)

    [​IMG]

    and here's how it looks 10 days later

    I got my black headlight housings, 6000k HIDs and yellow foglight bulbs installed today. The housings look great but it look like they might leak over time so I resealed them just to be sure. More to come. :)

    Looking good!! Good choice in products as well!!;) Yeah if you got aftermarket black housing headlights like mine, its good that you resealed them. Mine were good for a bout a year and a half until the drivers side started getting moisture in it.:mad: It took me a couple times to find the leak but I finally just ended up resealing the whole light over and the leaking stopped.:eek:

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I went with the toytec 1.5" I'm prob goin to set the fronts at 1.75". I'll pull them out and reset them if need be. Seems like they are all over the place with different trucks on here. I've been racking my brain for the last week trying to come up with settings so I'll start here.

    Yeah I got a set for my girl's tC and they fogged up 3 months after I installed them so I'm not taking any chances this time with these lights.

    I'm sure ya will. Any mods done to yours?

    You might want to tell your paint buddy that he should put some "etch" or "bullfrog" on the chrome surround before painting it.

    It's a Alpine IVA W203 w/navi and the TR7 bypass. Works aweome! Still got a few bugs to work out with the bluetooth but I'll finalize everything once I install my back up camera

    Thanks, I was goin to get them in bronze but I thought I'd keep with my blacked out theme.

    My DD turned weekend car since I bought the Taco
