    I've always been a GMC driver, not exactly by choice, but I've recently stepped up into a 2013 Double Cab Short Bed Tacoma. I knew exactly what I wanted to do from the start and I've just 'Finished' in the past week.

    As it sits today:

    Here are my old trucks

    Here it is on the first day home:

    This was also on the first day:

    Got sick of the chrome grill. Chrome will get you dome, but it won't get you home:

    Was so bored with the stock truck after a few months, so I ordered a lot of shit I didn't need with money I shouldn't have spent:

    Coming home from Parker yesterday I decided to come through Bautista canyon. This truck handles for how little it had done to it!

    Sub'd. Man your gonna hate me when I finally get a build thread going. lol it's going to look like I'm copying, almost everything you've done to your MGM I've been planning on doing to mine:D. I'm going fox mid travel though. I was also planning on black method wheels they look sick on that MGM. Your truck is super dirty man (in a good way) how do you like your ICON set up? Especially in the rear with the bumps have you done anything that you actually need the bumps yet?

    Thanks dude. The bumps are awesome. I don't really wanna slam on them because I'm pretty sure it still bottoms on the shocks at full bump, but it's sure nice not having to slow down as much for bigger stuff I've come across. They're badass for sure

    I think it's called Fallen by Volbeat.





    Here's another video from running some whoops in the riverbed.

    Could you give me a link to your light bar? I can't seem to find one like it on the defiant site but I really like where that bar sits and the bracket ..
