    4Runner
    BHLM, SAW coilovers, Overland Warehouse springs and rear shocks, and Demello front bumper.
    Specs:

    • 2006 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner
    • 4.0 V6
    Engine:

    • K&N CAI
    • WickedFlow Muffler

    Suspension:
    -Front:

    • Bilstein 5100's on stock coils at 0"
    • Camburg 4" lift Spindles
    • Light Racing Upper Control Arms
    • Camburg Extended Brake Lines
    -Rear:

    • All Pro 3" leaf springs
    • Icon Remote Reservoir shocks
    • U-Bolt Flip Kit

    Interior Mods:

    • Scangauge 2
    • iPod hookup to stock stereo
    • Broken Center Console
    Exterior Mods:

    • Black Headlight Mod
    • Satoshi on black grille
    • Painted behind the grille
    • Bedliner on rear bumper
    • '09 tail lights
    • Baja Bumper with 2 KC lights.
    Wheels/Tires:

    • 285/70/17 BFG AT's
    • 17" LiquidMetal Gatlin Wheels
    Stock:

    This is the closest thing I have to a stock picture.


    Front Lift:
    I then put in my bilstein 5100's at 2.5" and ran the rear stock. I had that going for a while. I can't seem to find any pictures however.

    I ran that for a few months then I scored the Camburg Spindles from the b/s/t here, and got those installed. I had money to do the rear suspension at the same time but then I ran into problems installing the spindles so the money was gone. So to keep you updated I had the 5100's at 2.5" + Spindles for 4" = to a total of 6.5" of lift up front.

    [​IMG]

    Here you can see my tire just doesn't look right.

    Here is the truck with the lean :eek:.


    Baja Bumper:
    Then at the last mod day PreRunnerSeth threw in Roseville I picked up my Gatlin wheels from a member here, and purchased Kevin (1337taco's) baja bumper and got it installed. I also picked up my Light Racing UCA's from JD (Stillyfly) when he got his FJ, and installed those too. I also lowered my bilstein 5100's from 2.5" to 0" so now I only had the 4" of lift up front.

    Rear Lift:
    After that I started a new job and was able to start bringing in the money. I bought AP's 3" rear leaf pack, U Bolt Flip Kit, and Stainless Steel brake lines. I also scored a pair of Icon Remote Resi shocks for the rear to go with the new leaf pack. I installed them at Kevin's (1337taco) house with the help of him, Jason (strom), and Kevin's dad. As we were putting things back together we realized I didn't have the top plates for the U-Bolts so we stretched the U-Bolts out to fit into the stock plate and bolted/torqued them down. We managed to get them on and I now have the entire Flip kit on safely.

    [​IMG]

    This is the only pic I have of it now. I will get more once the new wheels/tires are on.


    Random Pictures:
    Before I installed the leaf pack I met up with Mark (solus694), and Steve (senor_taco) for the Central Coast photo shoot. I also picked up my tires from Mark.

    Thank you.

    Thank you. You kinda helped in forcing me to make it :p.

    Thank you. The bumper is pretty sweet, although I get the temptation to just take it off and go back sometimes.


    Hah nah didn't mess things up just helped to mess them up, and I have new ones so I can ship these ones back to ya.
