    I have been lurking these forums for the past couple years and have found a lot of useful information and insights on what is best for these trucks. I figured it was time to make a build thread.

    In January of 2010 I purchased my 2010 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab 4x4 with the TRD Off Road package. I do not have a picture when I first brought it home, but the picture below is stock from my time at Columbus AFB:

    I am originally from San Diego and had decent luck with my stock Tacoma in the desert, but the Mississippi mud was a completely different animal and just laughed at my ignorance. The F250 in the background also got stuck.

    When I was stationed in New Jersey I figured it was time to start upgrading the truck. The following is a progression from stock to how it sits today.

    I then added 17'' Method Double Standards wrapped in Goodyear Duratrac 265/70R17s.

    A closer look at the shoes:

    I then decided to take advantage of Downsouth Motorsport's Black Friday deal and purchased Icon coilovers and UCAs.

    I then took advantage of CBI's yearly slider sale and purchased their bolt on sliders.

    After a 6 month wait, I was finally able to add a satoshi grill thanks to HomerTaco.

    With the FJ emblem:

    The truck looks great. I've always liked the grills using the FJ emblems.
