    np man! It turned out pretty great I think. Especially considering I painted outside on a windy day without a paint booth and I got pretty tired of sanding after a couple hours so some of it was sort of half assed. I was pretty happy with my paint color choice as it was very similar to the gunmetal I was looking for\.

    Truck looks good without, but for Moab, I prefer it on! Nothing like pulling into any ole place and throwing your sleeping bag in the bed...but maybe DC's are too short for that?

    As always...awesome rig;)

It's all in the build
    Officially a member of the deckplate club. Replaced the K&N intake with it. Virtually no difference, but considering I don't think I lost any noticeable power I may be selling my intake (like new). Also ordered a timing belt water pump kit off ebay yesterday. It's about that time. I'm at 113K and checked my coolant and it didn't even show in the resevoir : ( Did a little reading and found that it may be a result of my water pump leaking. Ordered this one-

    Read a little bit and called Toyota. Nobody really gave me the impression that I would need a hydraulic tensioner. I'm getting my accessory belts cheap from my uncle who works at a parts store. Looking to do all this before I take my truck cross-country this summer..big plans : )

    I'm short (5'8") and the DC bed is still a bit short to sleep in. Bigger reason is I don't like the extra weight up high when I'm playing on the rocks in Moab.

    Finally pulled the 98-00 center console and cup holder assembly out... BYE BYE YOU F@$^&! POS CUP HOLDERS... BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Then pulled apart the 01-04 assembly (thanks Kuneff!) to paint it black and detail the hell out of the plastic interior pieces.

    Also did the "cup holder thingy" mod, thanks scocar... works like a charm

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/1st-gen-tacomas/14384-cup-holder-thingies-2.html#post2138962

    Also painted the shifter boot trim black.

    And then painted my transfer case shift knob to try and match the TRD shift knob I bought. It's not a perfect match but it'll work (the TRD knob is a faded black and the transfer case knob is now a gloss black).

    I'll post the finished pictures tomorrow... for now I just have two pretty useless and stupid pictures to share.

    Things to note:

    1. I plasti derped the transfer case shift knob and shifter boot trim at first. And it looked good. But I ended up peeling that off and painting it with the Dupli Color Vinyl/Fabric Dye.

    2. The gloss black might be too glossy for me. I'll have to see it installed and in the sun. So I might throw two coats of flat black over it.
