    I started out with this;

    A used 2007 Prerunner TRD Off Road bought in August of '08 with only 6800 miles on it.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    It already had a Revtec 3" spacer lift, BFG 285/75R 16 AT's on Moto Metal 16" 950's, E&G Classics Grill, Ram Tube Steps, TRD Exhaust, and In Pro Car Wear Taillights.

    So I was off to a good start. :D

    Then chris4x4 did my fog light mod in November of '08 and that was bad ass. :cool:
    (This pic was December of '08)
    [​IMG]

    Next I installed a blue LED dome light.
    [​IMG]

    In December I got my rear leaf spring TSB done and I was all kinds of happy. :D
    [​IMG]

    So around December or January, I saved up for and purchased 5100's and OME 885 springs. Then Chris talked me into saving up for Total Caos UCA's (it wasn't too hard to convince me;)) so he could install them all at one time.

    Installed bitches!!!!:bananadance:
    [​IMG]

    A HUGE thanks to Chris!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I started peeling all the chrome off during this time. Gone was the chrome tube steps and grill.:cool: Still got to get rid of those chrome Motometals though...
    Also added Wet Okoles.
    [​IMG]

    Then came the recessed and color-matched grill that Chris and I did (mostly Chris). It wasn't too long after that I painted the bumper valence.
    [​IMG]
    We even did the sides.
    [​IMG]

    Then I found a black bumper to trade for my chrome one (thanks McJosh:D).

    Then, finally some FJ Trail Team wheels (set of 5:cool:)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I recently added a stubby antenna.
    [​IMG]

    And this is how it looks today...
    [​IMG]

    Complete list of mods:
    Bilstein 5100's (front set @ .85")
    OME 885's
    chris4x4 anti-Taco-lean spacer on driver's side

    Rear Leaf Spring TSB
    Toytec AALs
    Black FJ Trail Team Wheels
    BFG 285/75R 16 AT Tires

    Thanks for the pics Chris!

    BTW, I also removed my tube steps today and Chris helped me with my 15,000 mile fluid and filter change as well. :)

    how did you pull off the TSB with a spacer. Everyone I know who has tried has been rejected with anything resembling suspension lift
