    2013 TRD Off-Road 4x4 (4T3)
    Loading......
    Bought her brand new on 8/11/13; I ended up trading in my 2011 Black Double Cab Pre-Runner SR5 Tacoma because I just couldn't pay on something I wasn't 100% happy with......In the end I WANTED 4x4 so I did it. And I'm glad I did, the '13 seats are amazing compared to my SR5 seats and tan interior my '11 had. I've always wanted to wheel my vehicles and I just wasn't comfortable running solo without 4x4. I ended up buying Pyrite Mica, originally I asked for MGM or Black but once I saw the Pyrite Mica on this truck the decision was easy....

    I bought a 2013 Double Cab Short Bed TRD Off-Road 4x4 in Pyrite Mica, Paid $32,995.54 OTD Purchased August 11th, 2013 (1st time I've had a 4WD vehicle)





    TRD Supercharged 2013 Pyrite Mica Tacoma

    [​IMG]

    UPDATED as of 06-19-2015


    Model: Tacoma TRD Off-Road Edition 4x4
    Drive-train: TRD Supercharged 4.0 V6 w/ 5AT
    Color: Pyrite Mica (4T3)
    Purchase Date: August 11th 2013

    0-60 Times (Specifications: 33" Tires w/ 3.73 Gears; Rock Sliders And Skid-Plate)
    8.2 Seconds (XTP Intake Manifold Spacer/Gibson Muffler)
    7.2 - 7.4 Seconds (TRD Supercharger/Gibson Muffler/aFe Drop-In Air Filter)
    7.8 Seconds (TRD Supercharger/Gibson Muffler/aFe Drop-In Air Filter/Walbro 255)

    Unfortunately like most of us Tacoma owners trying to pay off their debt I just had to find Tacomaworld.com and spend all my money......The truck went from a means of transportation to a hobby! I'm going to be using this build page to keep track of maintenance records, upgrades, and future purchases!

    Doors

    Tailgate

    This was my first trip using 4x4, never been before so it was an adventure. I ended up going to Indian Truck Trail in Corona, took that all the way to the Main Divide through Maple Spring Truck Trail and out onto Silverado Canyon Road. YAY for not knowing where the F*** you are going.
    [​IMG]


    Sadly no pics after...she was waaaaaaay dirty. Still have new plates from dealer hehe


    Eibachs for 1.6" Lift (Removed, Install King 2.5" RR CO's see down page)
    [​IMG]


    Bilstein 5100's (Removed for King's)
    [​IMG]


    Got my Borla muffler in the mail today (10-24-13) Removed and went with stock, It feels much stronger and smoother with stock muffler. Plus the sound was getting to me. Curently using Gibson Muffler as of August, 2014.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Got my Eibach's Installed w/ 5100's set @ 0" (Great set-up, would have been perfect except I needed to spend more moneys)
    [​IMG]


    Ordered a set of FJ TT Wheels from a local dealer, got super lucky. Going to mount to P265/75r16 Hankook Dynapro ATM which look awesome might I add. And here they are ! (EDIT: Been driving on these wheels + Tires for a couple thousand miles now, I must say they are wearing evenly and perform great on-road. UPDATE 3/31/14 Tires have been on for 12k + miles and perform and look great, if not for them being P-rated I'd keep em forever).

    Just got back from Discout Tire w/ my new shoes! Had the old ones in the back still. (8/31/13 Purchased. Installed September 1st w/ around 1,500 miles)
    [​IMG]


    BSP Door Emblems on...again (Off again...).

    Installed King 2.5" Coil-overs up front (Stock setting w/ driver side cranked up 3 extra threads) w/ Total Chaos UCA. In the rear Fox FJ Piggybacks. (Installed 11-27-13 @ TheSDTruckShop)

    Front Set-up. King's lifted me higher then I expected, I hope they settle a bit.

    At the Differential
    [​IMG]


    While doing all that also changed Front/Rear Differential and Transfer Case to 75w90 Mobil1 Synthetic and greased drive-shaft w/ Mobil1


    Removed King's to replace 700# Springs w/ 650# (I was actually sent the wrong springs from KING).
    [​IMG]


    Installed Gibson Stainless Steel Exhaust 2-12-14. By far my favorite exhaust, has little to no drone and a great rumble. Also noticed some increase in performance, the other exhausts felt "laggy" and seemed like it robbed me of torque. I would highly recommend this set-up. (For reference the AFE exhaust was annoyingly loud and seemed to rob too much "back pressure", same goes with the Borla Pro XS muffler I had previously with stock piping).
    [​IMG]

    Sway-Bar relocated (To my garage!) No noticeable difference on-road.

    certainly a nice start my friend. And yes, you are correct, the rear hanger in the 13's are different from previous years for some reason

    Nice color choice. Looking forward to seeing how the eibachs look on there. Are you going to set the 5100's at 0?

    Edit: Just saw where you said you were going to put them at 0. I'm thinking about doing the same set up.

    Updated with pic of Eibach's and 5100 @ 0" installed. Looks about level in my opinion I'm really diggin it.

    Love your wheels Yota, I was thinking about getting bronze with this color looks pretty sharp!

    Thanks. I got the idea from a member here screen name North. He has a bad ass pyrite. I came across his build page before I bought my truck.

    How is the ride now and do you plan on lifting the rear?
    Also wondering if that was a package deal (eibach springs and 5100's) or did you buy them separate?

    For now I plan on keeping it @ this height. If i do add anything in the back it will be a 1.5" AAL and put the 5100's @ .85 which should make me about level still.

    I bought them seperately, 5100's from downsouthmotorsports.com and the Eibachs from Toytec

    EDIT: The ride is great, you can tell its a little stiffer but it feels real solid on-road. Off-road has vastly improved. Not so damn bouncy.

    You were right about it being bouncy off road. I took mine on some trails the other day for the first time. The steering wheel was all over the place.

    These Duratracs performed well if you are thinking about getting tires. I'm pretty happy with them.

    Did you get a spacer for the driver side lean with your setup?

    Nice. What are you going to do next. If you are anything like me, that chrome bumper is going to start bugging you now. ( I blacked out my last 2 trucks)

    Thanks! I'm actually looking to get my bumper powder coated a flat black similar to my wheels, currently waiting on a quote. Already tested w/ some plastidip to see if I liked the look.

    I will also buy the color matched front grille in the near future....:)

    That was a hell of a deal. Next time you have time, would you mind taking a side profile pic like the one in your sig except for not at an angle? I'm still trying to make up my mind on the eibachs.

    I removed them and painted flat black, used some clear double sided tape to stick them back. Its on there real good too , I'm alittle on the fence about it though because I can see the edge of the clear tape some.....maybe I'm just being crazy.

    I bet you are the only one that will notice. Did you get any quotes for powder coat on the rear bumper?
