    This was at my cousins graduation. Her buddy wanted to go wheeling, so I took him on some trails at my grandparents. Carb got soaked, and died in the middle of the woods. He tried to start it for so long the battery died. So, I kept my truck running and threw my battery in his jeep, needless to say that was a fun wheeling experience.

    Right after I painted the grill, hasn't been that clean since.

    This was on my road trip to Savannah, Ga. Threw a pop up camper mattress in the back, all my camping gear, my wedding clothes for my cousins wed, and headed down south! Best trip ever, slept at a few rest areas, stopped and camped in the Great Smoky Mtn. National Forest.

    Nice build man, I love the look.
    I've got the deckplate mod on my Double Cab(Had the v6, so I got the 4" deckplate), but the new truck I got is a 4cy. Did you use a 3" Deckplate for it?

    Thanks man! She's a work in progress!

    I think I used the 4" deck plate too, I'll double check that on my lunch break and get back to you. I used the biggest one possible, I know that.

    Just re-checked and I did use the 4" deck plate, hope this helps you out!


    Haha thanks man! Too bad they didn't go all the way.


    Thanks, it still has a lot of work I'd like to do. I think my next mission is to get the cap water tight, and build a bed platform for my camping trips this summer/fall. Also, I need to figure out how to hook up my HID's!! They've been sitting for months now.

    Hey sorry for the late reply, just saw this. After installing the 5100's, and leaf pack I received about 2" of lift overall. With the Cap on I would say 1.8" of lift in the rear. It has a bro stance with the cap on unfortunately, I'm looking to fix that with either lift shackles or an AAL. Need to purchase extended brake lines first.

    Sweet so you just got the 5100's and no coils in the front?
    How do you have HID's? I thought the light for the 95-97 taco was a complete piece. Can you put up pics I don't like the whole stock one piece light I wanted to put some where you can switch out the bulbs. Sorry don't know if I made any sense I'm writing this from my phone at work lol.

    Yup still running the stock coils, just have my Billies on the middle setting.


    I haven't installed my HID's yet, still looking for a good write up. I found them on ebay, I will post a link to a few where the bulbs are interchangeable. Just look for a headlight that is 7 x 6 and you are good to go. I'm the same way the one piece light is no good.

    Here are the ones I ordered if I recall correctly (first link):
