    Alright, here's my build so far.

    Bought her used in December 2009 with 136,212 miles on her. One owner.

    Truck information - 3.4L V6, PreRunner TRD Off Road Package

    Running boards and a tonneau cover were already installed.
    [​IMG]

    The previous owner had removed the front mud flaps.

    I left the tonneau cover and running boards on through the winter (the tonneau provided some extra weight in the back), and had 4 sixty pound sandbags in the bed for the winter.

    The first change I made to the truck was the removal of the running boards.
    [​IMG]

    Eventually the tonneau cover came off - I left the mounting hardware in place.

    [​IMG]

    Then the infamous get-stuck-in-the-mud mod.

    Hauled some rock and mulch for some projects around the house

    Frame rusted through on the right side; frame replacement followed shortly thereafter

    Ordered 5100's and AAL

    And here is how she sits now

    Future mods:

    Wheels and tires
    Spacers?
    Suggestions?

    Nice! Did Toyota buy the frame and install it free?

    Also, have you done the deck plate mod yet? I did and i love the way it sounds when i floor it. Sound like a vacuum under the hood :D
