    Hi All,

    I thought it would be cool to track my mods on the forum so stay tuned to the little mods.

    My end goal for my taco is a Pre-Runner Desert mid travel suspension setup.

    This is what the truck looked like when i bought it

    Cleaned up the paint prior to Plasti-dip

    Taped and covered everything.

    It took way more paint that i was expecting to get minimal coverage.

    It's a terrible picture but it turned out really nice! 5 coats later......

    I also went cheap and added the ProComp leveling kit since the stock stance was hideous.

    Looks good. Already came with a few nice mods like BHLM's and a satoshi.

    I purchased the lights from oznium.com and so far am very pleased at night loading up the truck for Moto/camp trips.

    It took me a little over 3 hours to complete the install and when it was all said and done the switch that i purchased wouldn't fit in the factory switch slots even when the website claimed it would.

    I removed all storage compartments and began my layout

    This model of LED has a lens that projects the light in a more even tone. So far its a really nice light for its purpose. http://www.oznium.com/led-bolt


    If anyone knows where i can find a factory light switch please let me know

    Thanks

    Thanks, so far the Plasti-dip hasn't peeled or bubbled and i think it makes the truck much more aggressive even with stock tires and wheels.
