    Ok, so I have decided it was time to create a thread showing the progression of my truck. This will be a progressive one being that I have completed quite a bit and am now having to sort through all my pics and write this up, so bear with me.

    Here is how it sits as of today:

    I dont have many pictures, but here it is stock a few weeks after I originally purchased it in Feb. 2007.

    LIGHTING:

    Headlights:

    The very first addition made to my truck was a McCulloch 6000k PNP HID kit.

    allpics009_6c9cd20fb6ea9ee56011289970deb423ef8945e1.jpg

    I ran with this setup since new and decided that I would try a retrofit (and complete the BHLM. I bought the FX-R stage 4 kit from Retrofitsource.com. The process took a solid 2 days, but was well worth the money and the time as you can see. Leaps and Bounds better than ANY other lighting.

    Headlight Housings (over time, in order):

    Grille Lighting:

    As many others have on this board, I added some Hella 500's behind the grille. Not all that functional, but I loved the looks.

    hellas005_8de4a7d3edbd34bcfbcfd6ea69afa1a468988565.jpg



    PERFORMANCE

    Thereafter, I found myself wanting some more power/sound, so along the way I purchased a TRD intake, TRD exhaust, Doug Thorley LT headers, a URD Y pipe, and the URD MAF calibrator. I then went to DynoComp and got it tuned.

    Sound:

    Tune:

    LIFT/WHEELS/TIRES

    Then came the Lift, Wheels, and Tires. I originally went with the basic Toytec 3" (885's and top plate/aal in rear), along with 5100's and 285/70/17 BFG m/t's wrapped around Pro-comp 6007 17x9 wheels. And it came out like this:

    mymoon034_f57874bbb79aaff0f133b52d82d1b4821a67417a.jpg

    mymoon030_0d1f766cd5b84f73d3479213b446c02e38cfc6f1.jpg

    P9030630_4f83bf5921529e0c668b68e03bc16608696b7a5b.jpg

    Since were on the topic of Lifts and Tires, I soon realized that there was quite a bit of SAG in the rear (and the front as well), so what i ended up doing, (and how it sits now), is getting the TSB spring pack in the back and throwing the AAl back in, and for the front, I ordered a 1" daystar spacer to go along with the saggy 885's. Heres a before and after shot of how it sat.

    BEFORE::

    blackheadlight004-1_ae435db2d8e28a17ebd3bc0086d5d77dffc64164.jpg


    AFTER::

    reartsbpic003_81fb8a9634f9de3b05d4f5a8ce94138a754e3bd9.jpg

    Once the BFG's were retired I decided i would try a new size and ended up deciding on GoodYear MTR with Kevlar in 305/70/17. I did have to complete the cab mount chop in order to complete a full lock turn.

    152_2933cced4f6577cf34e789a3c382ac126532a28d.jpg

    EXTERIOR TRIM:

    So originally I purchased a Billet grille off ebay and sprayed it black with 3m runnerized undercoating.

    hellas003_2d1e6a09db43ba3751f156a28d192ab1cb331e1c.jpg

    Then I went ahead and decided I would go through with the Satoshi.

    P3172457_1833cd2fa018b16bdb91566c886e9b564f676a3e.jpg

    Only other differences on the exterior of the truck (that i can think of now), are the Lower Valence Vinyl, and the painted rear tailgate handle.

    engagementweekendcabin048_fc8e85217563401625caf301ddb7a481ae9daca1.jpg

    That will have to do it for the time being. I'm sure im missing a few things but when they come to me, ill update it.

    i like them a lot actually. Road manners are very similar to the old BFG's. They do require a bit of trimming though.... and the cab mount chop.
