    Installed: 6in procomp, 17's, 35" BFG KM2's, bed extender, Weathertech liners, Stubbs HD-SKO sliders, Diff Breather mod. Mods to come: front bumper, Safari snorkel, XRC8 winch, skids, rear bumper, Air lockers, (lots) of lights, fender protectors + (semi exocage?)
    *I am renaming the truck, the "Little Beast" ;)

    Soooo I just ordered a couple things today so I though I'd start my build thread since I have nothing else to do.

    So I kind of cheated and bought my Taco already lifted from dealer...
    repo apparently.

    2006 DC Taco 4x4 SR5

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    got her with about 8k miles :yay:
    almost brand new!

    So it came with the following:

    Pro Comp 6" lift
    Pro Comp 18x9 Series 7089 Cast-Blast wheels
    Toyo A/T 275/70/18 tires


    I then proceeded to add:

    -Weathertech Liners (front and back)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    -Stubbs Welding HDSKO rock sliders

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    -Diff Breather mod

    [​IMG]

    -OE bed extender (no pic)


    [​IMG]

    Went down to 17's and slapped on some 35" BFG KM2's

    6/11
    Got a front bumper from Brute Force Fab. Effin sweet if I do say so myself

    Installed the XRC8 I had sitting waiting for a home

    And finally hooked up both [stock] fog lights....

    [​IMG]

    New lights from Automat Central:

    I feel you on that one. I wish I could go smaller wheels but doesn't procomp
    say you can't go smaller than 18's? and why? :confused:

    What size tires would you recommend? :rolleyes:

    hahaha I'll have to do some reading...

    but in the meantime.... I rolled the truck on Monday :(
    I'm starting to think the 6" was a little too much......
    tell you what though, that thing held up really well.
    it was sitting upside down for 1.5 hours and none of the
    windows/windshield broke or anything. just body damage
    (hood roof and fenders). hanging there by my seatbelt,
    I rolled down the window, unbuckled and crawled out (lol)
    picturing myself do it makes me laugh.
    Not a scratch on me.
    We'll see how long it takes to fix her :/

    oh my god!....it's amazing what these trucks can take, i'm glad it kept you safe.
    was it just too fast on a turn?

    not that i like seeing injured tacos...but i'd be very interested to see any pictures if you got some. to have a 6 inch lift roll over and not even break a window is pretty impressive...that's a long way to fall.

    Here you can see the burm that stopped me but also sorta rolled me/ saved my doors and side panels... :confused:

    [​IMG]

    There's where I was driving from.

    See super long turn, wasn't going that fast IMO... :eek:
    But if you look carefully, you'll see the small bumps in the road that
    I believe induced the "hydroplaning"
