    So.... My build page got pretty scattered and disorganized with many different pictures over many different pages. Decided to clean it up and put everything in one spot for easier access to everything. So here it goes.



    2013 4x4 White DCSB Tacoma Off Road


    On 10/23/2013 I decided to trade my 2011 PreRunner on this truck. I really have no idea why but I just felt the need to buy a new truck. The only thing that I ever really regretted about my PreRunner was I wish that I would have bought a 4x4 at the time. Although I don't do that much off roading and never had any trouble getting around in the snow or on trails that I ran to launch my kayaks it is nice having the piece of mind of having the 4x4 just in case. So with that said I bought a Loaded 2013 Off Road with every option on the list.

    List of mods so far (Updated often so check back):

    2011 sitting behind the 2013 getting ready to do the tire and wheel swap. Yes I still have the Factory wheels and tires from the new truck in the attic right now.

    First Mod... Paint the grill to match the lower valance and get rid of the chrome surround. Removed the grill.

    Taped off the inside of the grill to paint the chrome but ended up painting the entire grill in the end.

    Have since replaced the grill with a Color Matched Sport Grill. Looks much better.

    Quick video of the Dash Cam. It turns on when the truck is running and turns off when it's not. Nice piece of mind.

    Video of the Camp Bird Mine Trial. We had to turn around on a sketchy portion of the trail due to a large ice sheet blocking the next corner. That corner was about 6-7' wide with about a 500' drop off.

    Great build so far. Have done all the things that I eventually want to my truck.
    Where did you buy the wheels from and how much?

    Thanks.

    Bought the wheels and tires from a local tire shop. IIRC I paid $145 each and then $200 for each tire with lifetime road hazard. You can get the wheels off Amazon for around $130 but the price was so close I like to support small businesses when I can.

    I bought the swivel mount for the UG. It has 3M tape on the back and I mounted it above the mirror. There is just enough cable to mount in that location to run under the headliner, remove the 2 bolts holding the "A" pillar panel on, and run the cable straight to the port.

    I like it in that location because it doesn't block any view and I can see all the vitals of the truck when I glance up at the mirror.

    Hey Craig...I like how you dipped the emblems. Your pic shows them masked before painting, but I don't get the white background...did you paint then wipe off the overspray or did you mask more than the pic shows?

    That light bar is badass, BTW

    enough to go over stuff
    -plasti derp pulls off if sprayed correctly. You have to prevent over spray cuz that will be hard to get off. watch some youtube videos.

    The build is looking good.

    Craig...Nice Ride! Looks like my twin...haha I am in the process of modding my Taco as well and have done a few of the same things you have done. I'm getting mine lifted 3" with new wheels and tires this Tuesday and can't wait. Nice job on the grill blackout. I plan on cutting out my front grill and installing on of the Grillmaster Mesh grills (Black). I also had the chrome fascia as your's, but decided to make it white as well as the side view mirrors and eventually the door handles. The balance of Black/White looks good on the Superwhite Taco. I mounted a Thule rail rack on the top of my cab for my surfboards, but I like what you did with the bed cargo rack. Looks awesome! Keep up the good work and I appreciate your service as a Firefighter!!!

    You should swap out the interior cab lights with LED's. It's a huge difference in being able to see inside the cab at night. I did the dome and map lights. It's a cheap do it yourself'er...

    Criag, before I clutter up your thread too much...lol What type of mount (Brand) is that you're using for your Note 3? I have one also and that looks like a nice spot to hang it...
