    Brought home my 2nd Tacoma on February 21, 2013. This time, I bought a 2013 DCSB V6 SR5 4x4. Here's a pic from the day I brought it home.

    First three weeks:

    Removed stock running boards and mud flaps.

    Completely debadged truck. One step closer to full chrome removal.


    March 19, 2013: 3" Lift/Wheels/Tires have been installed. Took the truck to 4 The Truck Customs and Accessories. The guys over there did a great job, and were happy to work with my wants and price range.

    Installed a ToyTec Ultimate Lift: Bilstein coilovers/shocks and ReadyLift spacer on top of coilover to prevent maxing out coilover length and front end sag.

    Installed Toyo Open Country A/T II 265/70/17's with 17" Method Standard wheels.

    Also, bought a lightly used 265/75/16 tire from Discount Tire and swapped out the spare.

    Pic of my little boy (13 months) standing next to the family Taco :D He seems to be more interested in his finger (not a booger, hasn't figured out how to pick them yet haha) than the massive tire next to him.

    Next up:

    Aftermarket Beefy UCAs

    Rear Offroad Bumper (All-Pro, Relentless, Demello, etc. Haven't decided yet)

    Hi-Lift Jack Bed Mount

    Wet Okole Seat Covers

    Possible Satoshi (Also haven't decided if I want to do that or not yet)

    and probably more stuff that I haven't considered yet...

    Stay Tuned!!!

    nice build so far man!! i love the stance of the truck. I was wondering though if that spacer limits your down travel? the shocks ever top out?

    I haven't added anything to this in a while, you let me catch you all up...

    April 2013

    Line-X'ed the chrome bumper. It was too shiny, so I took it back and had them make it matte instead of gloss.

    May 2013

    Line-X'ed the Grille Surround and Center Emblem to match the bumper.

    No updates for a while, until November 21, 2013 :facepalm:

    During three very rainy days, I was involved in an at-fault accident that totaled another vehicle. Luckily I was fine. My taco on the other hand was not so lucky.

    From the initial photos, the bumper took the brunt of the accident. Little did I know that I had also warped my core support, fender apron, and a body mount. Almost $6000 in damage to my truck.

    I elected to leave the stock bumper off, and have a new custom prerunner style built by my friends at Best Muffler Shop here in Vegas. The bumper is bolt on, and powdercoated matte black, witch an aluminum skid plate.

    I had a couple tabs built for some Rigid Industries Duallys, and I had them wired and installed after the bumper was installed.


    [​IMG]

    Most recently, I ditched my Toyo 31s for some Toyo Open Country MT 33s. Here is the truck as it sits today...
