    Huge thanks to @orezona for designing this for me!

    How it sits as of 7/25/2017


    TL;DR: I like trucks and stuff.

    What's up guys, and welcome to by build thread! For those who know me, I used to have a 2015 Tacoma named Stewie that I spent a lot of time on and loved every second of it. I ended up PCS'ing to MD where I needed a more commuter friendly car, so I had to sell my beloved Stewie and buy a Subaru. I love The Grey Goose (my Subaru) but alas, it's no Tacoma. Fast forward eight months, and I really got the itch again. My wife knows how much I miss my truck, so with a little convincing, she approved my buying another one. After quite a few trucks where I was too slow and someone else bought before me, I came across this one.

    It's a 2005 SR5 with 165k miles, V6, 6MT, brand new frame and leafs, new tires, and I got it for $9.5k. Not. Too. Shabby.

    I'm not really sure as to the direction of this build, aside from making it reliable, yet very capable off-road and comfortable to take camping. This won't be an over-the-top build with a shit load of money invested, but I promise it'll be a fun one! Anyways, onto the truck.

    And finally, the unnamed truck!

    I immediately got to work removing all the stuff I didn't want on there.
    • Removed bug screen (what a PITA)
    • Removed side steps
    • Removed bedside decal (it's an SR5, not TRD OR)
    • Removed PO's stickers on rear window
    • Cleaned the FUCK out of the inside. It was nasty

    IMG_0752.jpg
    IMG_0749.jpg



    While I was in there I discovered this thing. I Googled it and it's pretty damn neat! Adds iPhone connectivity, as well as AUX and Bluetooth (with a separate module). The module is only $40 and has good reviews, so I'm going to get it. Well worth it to stream my music.

    I do too. They're 15mm offset as opposed to the stock 30mm, so they've got a little poke.

    I totally approve the ARB front bumper! Especially on pre 2012 Tacos.

    Do you have a link for that music bling bling? Does it work with batteries or with the power of the HU?
