    I think it's about time I made this; I got her in February of 2009 used with less than 25k miles on a 2007 model. so I'll start with the earliest photo I have of her (I named her Eleanor).

    [​IMG]
    (no not the GT-R, although I did drive that too)

    Decided to switch these out
    [​IMG]

    for these
    [​IMG]

    Then got my +50 HP sticker in the mail
    [​IMG]

    I decided that negative arched leafs were no longer "in"
    [​IMG]

    So I pulled some strings at South Coast Toyota and got this
    [​IMG]
    (the tech asked if I was on any forums after I talked to him, I guess you guys are doing a good job :D)

    Here's how she sits after the rear TSB was completed
    [​IMG]

    Forget Wheaties, here's the real breakfast of champions
    [​IMG]

    This day was fun :rolleyes: I tore apart the whole front end to throw some spacers on, but they wouldn't fit, so I had to try to disconnect the UCA from the spindle and it did not budge no matter what, and I didn't have a ball joint remover. :sigh:

    [​IMG]

    Now this is 2 days later with a ball joint remover :)
    [​IMG]

    This is after everything is installed and reassembled
    [​IMG]
    Then I got it aligned at Glenn's in Costa Mesa. I'm happy to support a good local shop.

    Went to JLB Motorsports today 6/28 and got these taken off
    [​IMG]

    For these :D
    [​IMG]
    16x8 Konig Countersteer Offroads on 285/75/16 BFG A/T's

    And here is what she looks like with them installed
    [​IMG]

    Armorall'd the tires today
    [​IMG]

    UPDATE 7/15/10

    Painted Hubs - cleaned off rust with a wire brush, put on a couple coats of dark primer and then a few coats of flat black. I love how it matches the rims perfectly. Bye bye ugly as rusty hubs :)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Sold my Tubesteps a couple weeks ago :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Well I didn't really have anything to do today, so I decided to finished painting my rear hubs and drums.

    [​IMG]

    And here is what it looks like with the wheel on it.

    [​IMG]

    Painted calipers white.

    [​IMG]

    I also took a better pic of what my caliper looks like painted with the wheel on.

    [​IMG]

    Here is what it all looks like together in a crappy cell phone pic

    [​IMG]

    those are all my updated pics of my truck as of 7/15/10

    I think it's about time I update this build...

    Finally got rid of that horrid chrome :D

    [​IMG]

    looks so much better in person

    [​IMG]

    Haha I've been pondering selling them, I'll probably post a feeler to see if any body wants them. I definately want some sliders but I'm just trying to find out were on my priorities they are.

    Thanks Brett!

    thanks :)

    haha the tires do rub something terrible :eek:, but that's because I haven't trimmed the fenders at all, because I'm planning on selling them when I Long Travel.
    They rub around full lock when going forward and around half lock in reverse

    Perks of being a valet :p It drives sooo nice. It rides like an Infinity or Lexus, but has the power of a Ferrari.
