    Hey everyone. I have had some request to make a build thread. Isn't much so far but I hope to get there one day soon.

    Here was the first week with my 2001 Tacoma. It's a Silver Double Cab V6 Prerunner. Looked around for about a year for the right one. Almost pulled the trigger on a 2002 Extended Cab Red Tacoma, but now I'm happy I got 4 doors.

    Took off the Running boards. Drove it like that for a couple of months.

    Got Weathertech All Weather Mats.


    For Christmas, I got a UWS Low Profile Toolbox!

    SockMonkey Decals. Thanks Greg!

    Got Bilstein 5100s on all 4 corners. The fronts are set at 2.5". I don't have an AAL in the back.

    Tires and Wheels installed! Tires are 285/70/17 Cooper STTs. The Wheels are 17" FJ Cruisers. I got a great deal on Craigslist. Exactly what I was looking for.

    Also Installed Spidertrax 1.25" Wheel spacers.

    Bebaged

    Future Mods:

    Thanks for looking!

    No problems. I had to get the Hubcentric ones though. I was debating on getting them put on all 4 wheels, but I liked just the 2. Thanks!

    The ride is a little stiffer than stock, but I like it. It feels better. The rear shocks are MUCH softer though. Definetely a great lift for the money. I don't really off road, just tow boats so I didn't need a coilover(Icons, etc). But I didn't want the spacer lift. A lot happier I did this. Replaced my almost 10 year old shocks while lifting!

    Just bought some Grille Material from a member here. The stuff looks good and is a lot cheaper than a Grillecraft.

    Satoshi? With FJ Toyota emblem, 2 Hella's, or both?
    Will post pictures when I get the material in.
