    How it currently sits... Perfect for camping!
    Lightroom Edit copy.jpg IMG_1495.jpg upload_2018-8-25_23-4-19.jpg upload_2018-8-25_23-4-3.jpg HELLOOOO TACOMAWORLD! As my first post ever, I’d like to start a build thread of my Overpavement rig which I sometimes flex on the sidewalk curb.

    When I was a kid, I always wanted a lifted truck. Living in Hawaii, you’ll see lifted Toyota’s everywhere you go. So, I knew I wanted a Toyota at an early age. After graduating from college, I decided it was time to make adult choices and buy my dream truck instead of focusing on paying back student loans! What a move. So, here’s how the truck stands as of now:


    2015 Inferno TRD PRO


    Suspension/Wheels/Tires:

    Front: Stock Bilstein coil overs (provides 2” lift)

    Rear: Stock Bilstein w/ resis

    OME DAKAR EL095R leaf packs

    U-Bolt flip kit

    Timbren bump stops

    Wheels: Stock PRO wheels (16,” +10mm offset)

    Tires: GoodYear MT/R 285/75/16


    Overpavement items:

    Tepui Kukenam 3 Explorer Series

    CBI off-road overland bars

    Total Chaos Bed Stiffeners

    Water port DayTank

    Relentless Fabrication Quick Fist Mounts

    Axe and Shovel from Home Depot


    Armor:

    RCI Offroad IFS, Mid, Transfer case, read diff skids

    RCI Offroad Sliders

    Deez nuts

    How it looked when I got it:

    Things I did in order:

    Relentless fab quick fist mounts

    Tepui Kukenam 3 Explorer Series
    On the day I drove down to the shipping company, a worker loaded up my daily with the shipment, then my daily decided not to start. Ford Ranger not starting? What is this, a joke? Was stuck at the shipper for an hour and a half, and ended up having to get towed. Wasn’t sure how I felt about receiving such an expensive package, then having to get towed home. If you wanna experience what this feels like, go ahead and make yourself a cup of coffee and compliment it was a big plate of spaghetti... that tastes like how I felt... excited but embarrassed.
    BUT! Was able to get it installed the same evening

    Had a lot of rubbing on my rear liners and fenders, so I had to trim and put a heat gun to them




    And that’s it for now!
    Tried posting pics of the last two events in this post, but couldn't. So, they're below in the next posts

    Not sure why it’s not showing in my original post, but here’s the trimming I had to do because the rear tires were rubbing A84902CD-C09E-48AE-8047-1C61DFE535DB.jpg 1635145B-8F79-439B-95F1-C17F3C5BB054.jpg

    FINALLY got some armor! Highly recommend RCI Metalworks- production time was quick, and shipping was fast as well. Got the IFS and Mid Skid on yesterday, going to install the sliders in the next few days.

WAY beefier than the NERF steps I had F31BCB52-E54A-4E44-8821-707DE56D28F0.jpgB3DFD2E0-7CA1-4D46-AD82-FD15FDE36AEF.jpg812C98DC-AE24-494D-8035-642A8EEB0256.jpg12154FFE-8F9A-44E8-B5FA-6CD6EF596FBE.jpgF31BCB52-E54A-4E44-8821-707DE56D28F0.jpg B3DFD2E0-7CA1-4D46-AD82-FD15FDE36AEF.jpg 812C98DC-AE24-494D-8035-642A8EEB0256.jpg 12154FFE-8F9A-44E8-B5FA-6CD6EF596FBE.jpg

    I installed Dakar EL095R's because my TSB springs were sagging. I removed the top overload leaf expecting to gain 2" of lift (due to OME claiming 2.75" unloaded), but didn't gain anything- it's riding at stock height. I plan to put the top overload back in, which will hopefully give me an inch of total lift. Anyone else have Dakars that are "sagging"?

    @SheepCatActual, I was wondering if that is all the cutting you had to do to fit the GoodYear MT/R 285/75/16? I noticed you mentioning that you cut the rear fender a little and also noticed you removed the front mud flaps. Mine still has the stock suspension as well except I have added a 3-leaf progressive ALL pack and I left the overload spring in. Do they rub anywhere and did you have to do a CMC? How close to the UCA are the tires?

    Thanks

    Hey @TRDProBuddy. Aside from removing the mud flaps, I had to unscrew and push the front portion of the front fender liner forward and secured them with zip ties.
    Also for the front: I hammered the pinch weld flat and had to re-form the liner with a heat gun. I did NOT have to do a CMC because I'm using stock UCA's. As for spacing between the UCA and tires, I don't know the exact measurement, but there's no rubbing there at all.
    For the rear: I trimmed the fender, and the had to re-form the black fender liner with a heat gun.

    I haven't taken it out for any crazy flexes yet, but the minor trimming and re-shaping seem to be sufficient.

    I was cruising this page and noticed you had Relentless fab quick fist mounts on the side bed rail. Seeing that your avatar is a diving one, you think those mounts could hold a speargun? I'm running Russel's KAP gun and I'm always looking for a better way to carry it. Just not sure if this thought I have would clear my Thule racks sticking down in my bed.

    @Musubi3 Mahalos for checking my page out! Yeah, they could definitely handle a speargun; they’re strong enough. Good thing is that quick fists have an adjustable diameter, so you could use it to hold both wood and pipe spearguns. I’d make sure to use blue locktite, though, because the bolt that holds the rubber mount to the actual mount will want to loosen at times.

    I’m also unsure how they be able to mount on your rails if you have the Thule racks, maybe could mount the quickfists againt the cab portion of the bed?? Hope this helps!
