    Well, I bought her in late March and this is what she looks like today:

    This was three days after I bought her:

    And now!

    The thing that gives the most pleasure is knowing that the majority of the parts/mods on this truck were sourced here in AZ!! I love buying local and supporting the folks here in my state. They are as follows:

    Light Bar and Weld-on Sliders: Brandon at Avid Off-Road.

    http://www.avidoffroad.com/

    Brandon is a SOLID dude and it was a pleasure doing business with him. Very accommodating and the work he does is awesome. He works in a small shop with NO air conditioning...and yet he stills maintains his good demeanor. I cannot say enough about him and his work. (He also put on my suspension, mounted the light bar and welded the sliders)

    Two Light tabs plus one POV camera mount tab.

    Bed bars and Basket: Custom by mreimann. He is on here but his time is short...he is off to college soon. Glad I was able to have him do some work. Smart kid...(I say that since I am twice+ his age.) I have some trail armor and another bed bar coming from him soon. Highly recommend.

    ALL the powder coating done by Desert Powder Coating. Good prices and nice turn around. Josh is the owner...good dude.

    http://desertpowdercoating.com/

    Tires: Duratrac 285/75R16

    Local Goodyear store price matched Sears so I got the tires for just shy of $200.00 per.

    Suspension: OME 3" in. 885 Coils, AAL, top plate..all from Toytec.

    Wheels: FJ TRD's from the dude in California. (Powder coated by Josh)

    Color Matched Grille and Grillecraft Grille, Headights: Forgotten1 (another TW'er)

    Interior:

    Wet Okole: Front seats and armrest.
    Weathertec Mats.
    Ram Mount for touchscreen laptop running a couple of GPS mapping programs. Primary one from: SpatialMinds.com
    Garmin GPS
    USAspec" iPod interface. Wanted to keep steering wheel controls and I life the clean look of stock...for now.

    Future:

    Black center caps for the wheels.
    Black Bumper
    Hella 4000 Rallye Lights (Enroute as we speak)

    Goals: Cross between a good wheeler and some overlanding.

    This truck was built by the folks here at Tacoma World. It has been and continues to be a WEALTH of solid information. Nothing I did was without consultation or resourcing this site....so thanks!

    I LOVE THIS TRUCK!!!!!

    Brandon is a great guy!!!.
    I like the bed basket deal.
    Any details like tubing size and apx. weight?
    I may have to look into one of those.
