    so i finally got my 4cyl taco! going to college (for a mechanics degree) and working full time so this build might be slow but its my first vehicle worth building so it should be fun!

    okay so within the first week i got new wheels and tires.
    The wheels are Ultra and the tire size 230/70r15
    biggest size tire they could fit on there at Les Shwab
    i had to do "black box mod" to get rid of small rubbing.
    also had windows tinted at 35% (legal limit in Oregon)
    and blacked out all badges

    Truck looks great man! It's definitely a great college vehicle. Just curious though, what size are your rims? 15X8?

    And good luck in your studies by the way.

    Nice 5 Lugger

    Lot in common. 5 Luggers, Silver Tacos, Auto Tech programs, FT work, slower (budget friendly) builds. First trucks worth putting effort into. Had my FV done...had.

    Keep it up! Looks great. Get rid of that chrome grille though! To shiny! Can of plasti-derp and 10 minutes is all it would take.

    Nice!

    I normally don't like flashy wheels on Tacomas, but those are really sweet!

    Thanks guys :) right now I'm saving up for a black mesh grill but cant decide weather to put off road lights behind it or two Hella horns. Going mostly for the look! But the upgraded horns might be nice for delivering pizza. A lot of crazy drivers here ha

    Thanks you :) There actually 15/10. They definitely stick out on the sides and without fender flares they are considered illegal but they look awesome! And there are to many ppl here without fender flares for the cops to care ha.

    Forgive my ignorance, but there is seriously a law about that?? Lol I had no clue. Did you need any spacers or anything? Or just threw em on and away ya went?

    And I'm definitely feeling lights behind a colormatched Satoshi grill, always loved the look of it myself, that's what I've got planned.

    No spacers or anything! they just slapped right on!

    My uncle (the cop in the fam) told my any tread showing outside of the fender/fender flare is illegal. But luckily its usually a fix it ticket ( if its a cop that will actually pull you over for it).

    but they look to good! gives it a more aggressive look from behind!

    If you're ever around Ohio and want a black OE rear bumper, let me know.

    Badges look good.
