    Since I am bored right now and suffering from food poisoning, ill post.
    My 2004 DC Prerunner TRD offroad taco. When I first bought it, June 2009 w/ 38,000 miles on it, put the flowmaster 40s on 2 days later
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Then put on the silly TB spacer as well as K&N intake setup in July, (didn't do my research obviously), found out about TW a couple months later :(
    [​IMG]
    Also got my truck tinted, 35 in the front, 20 in the back:
    [​IMG]
    Then got these Babies installed in August: Gibson Headers.. yes!
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Then got my lift... in August, when my truck was all for show, no go... Fabtech 3" coils in the front 3" blocks in the back... crappy shocks to go with it.. it sat very nice, but the ride was offroad while on road. horrible.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Then realized how stupid I was for paying the shop to install my HID lights........ bought the kit from DDM... one of my ballast's was burnt out... then just returned the whole thing, the lights were nice n bright though:
    [​IMG]
    Went offroading for the first time, it was one hell of a friggin ride.... my leafs were shot after this happened... negative arch lol.
    ONLY AFTER THIS, discovered TW, did my research and always gotta learn the hard way... Then MikeDoubleCab, suggested I put the deaver j59's on with the billies, and i thank him for that ALOT. Ride is ALOT smoother. Dec 2009
    [​IMG]
    Then herculined the fenders, bottom bumper, n skid plate. it came out really nice, now its kind of faded:
    [​IMG]
    Debadged n seafoamed Dec 2009:
    [​IMG]
    Then got a new HID kit.. from the retrofit source, morimoto ballast, really nice clean white light..:
    [​IMG]
    After this, nothing much, added the alpine cda-9886, then took it offroad 4 more times, still into it:
    [​IMG]
    I really want 4wd but 2wd makes it more of a challenge :rolleyes: haha. Thats it for now, Oh yeah just put in my order for a bumper from Relentless Fabrications! yeah just waiting on that then more pics to come!

    I gotta agree with that. That bumper looks Awesome on your truck.

    Are considering a winch? I just bought one today. $430+tax at Amazon for a Xrc8 Comp. Shipping was free.
