    -Bilstein 5100s all around
    -SpiderTrax 1.25" Wheel Spacers all around
    -FJ Cruiser 17' Alloy Wheels
    -285/70/17 KM2s
    -ARB Tacoma Front Bumper
    -4xInnovations Sliders w/Kickout
    -URD Short Throw Shifter
    -Magnaflow Muffler Dumped
    -Deckplate Mod
    -HIDs

    Future Mods:
    -TRD Supercharger w/Fuel Mods (Currently Rebuilding)
    -Relentless Fab Rear Bumper
    -Light Racing UCAs
    -Winch
    -Snorkel

    Made the mistake of following Jake Miller's Runner on 37s at Hidden Falls in a stock taco. Busted the rockers pretty good.

    Did the lift and tires next and wheeled her some more.

    Welded on the sliders. I just bought a MIG welder setup and had my buddy teach me how to weld to get it done. Still need to paint the sliders.

    Got a TRD Supercharger that needed a rebuild. Currently Chris and I are rebuilding it. Will be installing the necessary upgrades at the same time.

    Thanks! I love the setup it has right now, but there are always new things I find to add.
