    Heres Pyro's red taco build. I havent done much in the last few years to my truck, but the last few weeks, Ive been modding the crap outta my taco. At least with what I can afford. Trying to do things to it every day or so. Afterall.... your never REALLY done modding and doing work to your truck right?


    LIST OF MODS:
    Mid Travel Icon Coilovers, Camburg UCA w/uniball
    Flowmaster Single in Dual out and dumped (super loud)
    Big Foot All Terrains
    KNN Intake Filter
    Hella 500s
    Aftermarket Grill
    Procomp 9000 rear
    Pioneer DEH-X4600BT
    CB Radio - Uniden PRO 520XL (With PA System ;))
    4' Fiberglass CB antenna
    Custom sheet metal protection inside rear fenders for snow chains
    1000 watt amp with 12" sub





    WISH LIST:
    Front Hybrid (with winch) or Baja Bumper

    This is how she stands now... Normally I am against chrome on trucks, but I think it looks decent on my taco. Might black it all out later.

    Procomp 9000's. To be honest, the rebound is way to poppy for me. I wanna change this pretty soon.

    Big Foot tires (new tread) I used to have BFG All terrains, but couldnt afford them brand new this time. However, I found out these tires are pretty dope. Also, pray painted the wheels. They hold up pretty good

    Had to make a custom insert for my rear fender. When I was running chains, it was tearing everything up. I havent tried it like this, but seems logical that itll work nicely.

    Got a few extra Gas cans for some long trips. Hopefully will do something the next upcoming months so I can use them :cool:

    Cracked my touchscreen radio... It worked great for a few years, but the touch screen stopped working... after a desperate act... I cracked it. I will probably buy a new radio later on today and install that.

    Yea man, I am really digging the racks you make. Just learned how to weld yesterday so going to buy raw materials soon. Figured it's better to make a rack on my first dab project then a baja bumper lol

    Aw man it was a tragedy... My touch screen only worked for a few years then slowly stopped working. I got pissed and hit it one day. Now the whole screen is jacked. The screen doesn't work at all, and after I disconnected the battery, now it's stuck in the installation mode lol. No music or anything and it's horrible!

    Haha sorry to hear that, have you tried going back through the installation to see if it would work again?

    nope, i just kept smacking it for the last year lol... prolly should have taken it apart. The touch screen was so unpredictable. Besides this new one I just picked up has a lot more bells and whistles. Just isnt touch screen.

    Some punk jacked my spare tire from under my truck... If anyone has a donut with a cheap tire on it, I'm interested.

    Working on installing the fm radio and cb today. Then drawing plans for bed rack.

    Went ahead and bought the materials to build the bed rack.. Most likely will put a tire carrier on it too.

    Picked up a spare tire cheap. It has all the knobs on it still :cool: Got lucky there.

    CB Radio Antenna installed.. wasnt sure how to run the antenna cable from the bed to the cab, so for right now, I am running it through my back window. Ill move the antenna to the bed rack after its made.

    Started the cutting and design for the bed rack I'm building. Hopefully, I'll will get a ton done tonight.

    Never realized how long it takes to build and weld something.. This what I've done so far for the rack. It's my first time welding so been making lots of mistakes and whatnot. Everything for the tip part of the rack is tacked on there.
