    Thats one good looking truck! Did you notice much of a difference in articulation with the shackle flip?

    Thanks a lot! Not many people care for the drop bracket lift but I unfortunately adopted it and am making this build around it. The truck definitely has a mean stance and look to it. Especially head on.

    Thanks!

    Thanks man, I am going to say no...not Scott. Its a friend who goes by Jeff...poor guy drives an FJ.

    Thanks a lot Dave....as you know with the build progress having patience is something that takes almost as much work as doing the build haha. I said last year I wanted my front end rebuilt before summer....I have all the goodies now. Just working on getting setup with a place to do the install. If worst comes to worst I will rip it apart in my Parkade.

    Yeah I was a fan of the Allpro bumper but quickly realized I needed a change...kinda forced the change on myself one night out drifting in the snow...whoops. Anyhow I found way too many people running the Allpro in my area and did not want to be a cookie cutter Tacoma. Excellent change for sure!

    Thanks a bunch, your build is really clean looking. I'm a big fan of the blacked out look or all dark. It looks MEAN! The CBI was definitely a good purchase!

    Yeah....but now I think my shocks limit me. Need to test this out one day in the near future. Working on rebuilding the front end right now and paying for that. The shackle flip was a PITA to install. I underestimated the strength of the factory mount and how well it was glued to the frame. Also had a hell of a time figuring out the correct size shackle I needed to get my angle right. For some reason with the shackle flip kit and the Allpro Expedition leafs I could not use the factory shackles.

    Allpro front bumper was one of my first mods. Was pretty stoked about this one as it is not a one piece and one of the reasons for buying it was the option to purchase "a part" if needed. Due to trail damage or what ever.

    Well I had an unfortunate ending to a late night on the roads playing in some fresh snow. After couple of hours out drifting I had a corner that did not like me. Down a bank I went and the bumper took the brunt of the impact on the trees.

    [​IMG]

    Next few days I spent trying to get Allpro to send new parts....seemed like this option would never pan out. I tried to get a friend to straighten it out....came close. After this I realized I probably wouldnt be happy if it sat crooked on the truck.

    I started looking for my new front bumper and found the sweet CBI one piece.

    One night I was headed out to go climbing with spoonman. As I pulled into the gas station a lady opened her door and it went into the side of my truck. Put a pretty big dent and crease into the box.....

    [​IMG]

    Into the shop it went for a new bedside.

    I decided to take on the black head light mod. Wasn't really fond of dealing with the glue/sealant when taking them apart. The finished product installed looked really good though.

    [​IMG]

    Plasti Dipped all the badges. I think it looks much better all blacked out! Found this stuff super easy to work with.

    [​IMG]

    Finally started on some real mods. I had a good buddy with some killer skills install my sliders for me.

    Same friend tacking up the bed cage for my RTT. I had previously used Freeze's bed rack to see how I liked having the RTT on the rack but I found his was too tall for what I wanted. Lower COG with the added weight also needed to fit in the parkade with the tent on the truck. Nick had no problem solving that problem.

    [​IMG]

    Lots of people seem to really like this shot. One of our trips to the Crowsnest Pass.

    [​IMG]

    Tent installed on the new rack....rear bumper on its way

    [​IMG]

    Hi Lift mounts getting glued on. Stoked on this location for mounting the lift. Dreamed it up and again Nick made it happen very quick and easy!

    [​IMG]

    And another big impovement. Getting the rear end to actually function was a good good feeling. When I bought the truck it had the procomp lift in it. A couple days before heading out on a bigger trip to do the Whipsaw trail I noticed one of the rear shocks spat its guts out in front of The Gear Shop. So I had to order new shocks....wasnt going to install them with crappy leaf packs that were also busted. So I ordered some now leaf packs and a u-bolt flip kit as well. All to install the night before leaving. Before/After

    Hahaha blocks? Really? Come on....

    Yes I know it needs bumps.

    Group shot of the crew headed to Tofino. This was taken at the Hope Slide.
    [​IMG]

    Out in Crowsnest Pass with a minty 4runner.....RIP 4Runner, recently taken out of commission from a drunk driver. Very thankful my our bro walked out of it untouched. $runner rolled a few times from being rear ended at high speed.
    [​IMG]

    Start of no return....cutting factory shackle mounts off. Thought this would be a fast job. What a PITA. Installing the ATO shackle flip kit. Also in this shot you can see the exhaust has been cut back with the borla tip welded back on. Really like the finish this gives the exhaust.

    It didnt matter what I did to the shackle flip kit mount or the shackles I could not get it to sit right. This was the worst possible setup I had it at to try and get it sitting right. I did not drive the truck during this time! With it installed the way we thought would work the shackle actually sat down against the leafs. With on going driving over bumps and flexing I knew this would also cause a problem. The shackle itself would act like a dull but very strong saw working at the leafs, then finally bang. Both leafs would break on you. After a little thinking and talking back and fourth with people. I decided I wanted to try a larger shackle to get the angle I needed. I had Chad at Yotafab make me a couple of test pieces.

    [​IMG]
    The factory shackle length eye to eye I believe is 3.5" so the test parts I had him make were for 4.5/5.5 and 6.5" I tried 5.5" first with good success.

    With the truck sitting on the ground I had no rake, the shackle angle looked good so I had him make me a couple custom shackles and it has not been taken apart since then!

    That is a great write up Ryan and you're right that photo from Crowsnest is an awesome shot. I did not hear about what happened to Vic and I am glad to hear he is okay. Great photos of a great truck. So nice.
