    I bought my truck back in December of 2014, and being that it was my first car that I needed to take a loan out for, the mods had to wait a while. I bought it while I worked down in SoCal for a few years, and just recently moved back to NorCal and am now back in school. Ever since, the mods list has grown quite long so I think its time that my truck rated a “Build Page” so here it is. Will update post with old pictures as well as when new mods come in/ installed..

    *Pic Heavy!!*

    After seeing several different members wrap their trucks, I figured ahh what the hell. Lets give this a shot. After discussing it, researching, and Youtubing videos with my girlfriend for 2 months straight. I finally caved and bought 65' of Avery Dennison Gloss Blue vinyl wrap off Ebay during the 15% off everything deal. At the same time I decided to take care of several small things while the truck was taken apart.

    First day included washing the truck and stripping it down to bare bones

    57508403958__9A5F55A0-9DAB-4256-8A82-2926B3D5379D.jpg

    This included, bumpers, lights, mirrors, roof rack, flares, door handles, window weather stripping, bed rail covers, tailgate, camper shell, etc.

    57508388311__9679494A-2603-46EB-98A5-FA90D8BF858D.jpg

    After the truck was completely taken apart, we started with an easy piece: The tailgate.

    IMG_2211.jpg

    IMG_6594.jpg

    It took the tailgate, roof, and hood before a lightbulb went off for us and we got the hang of it.

    IMG_2841.jpg

    IMG_8176.jpg


    IMG_6742.jpg

    IMG_0341.jpg

    The doors were my favorite part I think

    IMG_6575.jpg

    It's the little things.

    IMG_2377-1.jpg

    While the caps were off, I figured I'd address the leaking issue coming from the bed rail caps. Thanks to @jberry813 and @JimBob for the idea. Using Butyl tape and Aluminum tape to cover the holes on the bedsides.

    57540456434__3AC1DC62-05E0-4CBB-A511-6F8C99D885B4.jpg

    IMG_3321.jpg

    57541912981__6FCD39F4-76B7-434D-98A5-93E2C4B2F675.jpg

    After that was done on both sides, it was time to wrap the bedside. We first thought about how we'd wrap it around into the dead space between the cab and the bed. We concluded that an inlay on the inside of the bed would be the best bet followed by the bedisde wrap piece serving as the overlay. In in the pic, you can see the knifeless tape over the inlay which was a cool way to do precision cuts without the need for an actual blade.

    IMG_8041.jpg

    IMG_2306.jpg

    After the bedsides were knocked out, it was time for the grille. This was a tricky piece because of the area where side black accent pieces sit. The curves of the grille make it diffucult for the wrap to stay with the tension. And Inlay would have been a good idea but we didnt realize it til after the wrap was already on. We seperated the grille surround from the black piece using dremel and the right amount of force.

    IMG_7263.jpg

    To attach it back together I used some plastic cement stuff from O'Reilly and it held pretty good.

    IMG_1230.jpg

    Finally it was time for the cab. We decided to do each door by itself so we had enough to wrap around the edge for a better look when the doors are open. So by doing that, we seriously underestimated how much wrap we had left. We went to pull enough wrap for the first side of the wrap and sure enough, we ran out. At 101" left, we somehow made it work for both sides of the cab. We ended up using scraps to do the bottom edge of the wrap as an inlay, and then using the big sheet for the top of the cab and down the rear back to meet the inlay and serve as an overlay.

    IMG_6989.jpg

    IMG_6872.jpg

    I then came across this vinyl tape called Mold n Hold that looks and feels like a weather stripping that is used to break up the change in color in vinyl wraps and used that all around the door seams.

    Before
    IMG_2405.jpg

    After
    IMG_2406.jpg

    Door Shut
    IMG_5403.jpg

    My original inspiration was the new TRD Pro's in Voodoo Blue, so I figured I might as well go Matte Black for the flares as well. Ordered I believe 7' of material and we barely made it work. Made sure I didnt break any of the OEM clips when removing too!

    Flares laid out over the vinyl

    57630648499__BD90BCBC-8404-4A52-885D-415AE03F39DE.jpg

    IMG_9590.jpg

    Also decided to replace the old OEM headlights with BH Depo housings off Amazon.

    IMG_8758.jpg

    Managed to snag TRD Sport Blink Blink mirrors of Facebook for $80! Snipped the old OEM harnesses on the mirror and in my door and replaced with my own harnesses and then ran the wires into the cab and spliced into the blinker wire.

    IMG_6292.jpg

    IMG_2495-1.jpg

    Was in a rush to get the truck back together in time for my buddy's truck meet he was hosting, so the camper had to wait until the rest of the vinyl wrap came in. Finished the night before the meet and on 3 hours of sleep, the truck finally saw sunlight for the first time.

    IMG_2444.jpg

    Posted up next to @MJonaGS32

    IMG_2442.jpg

    Now, finally after a week we started on the camper. Hands down, the WORST piece of this entire project right next to the cab.

    Front piece/ window got the inlay, and then both sides would meet in the middle, wrap around the front and overlay the existing piece.

    IMG_2510.jpg

    Almost done! Standby for finished product Before/After.

    Update 10/7/17:
    Plano case Mounted up. Need to get another one, looks funny with just one up there lol. Also have a pile of shit in my garage waiting to get installed. This includes a new A1 Steering rack with poly bushings. That should be a fun install. Can't wait. Also just got in on two group buys for bed stiffeners as well as an ARB safari Snorkel.. That poor fender isn't ever going to be same.

    Thanks bud!
    I'm dreading this install. Might do it this coming weekend. Or just give the parts to a shop and have them do it.
    Cause the interior smells like Pumpkin spice latte

    It's nice when the GPS batteries die and you're lost on the trail and end up driving in the dark and don't get to your camping spot till 9pm lol..

    Aren't that what the headlights are for? I'm talking about the lights shining on the suspension.

    Head lights are pointed forwards. The lights are shining on the tires and underneath the truck. They're for spotters and myself on trails if for some reason like the scenario I said above occurs. Its nice seeing what you're about to drive over.
