    Was YFZDrag3 but i changed my name so now its MedlinArounds Black Tacoma Build!!

    I Bought the Tacoma back in November off a guy and fell in love ever since. It was a 2008 Black 4x4 TRD 4 Door with 27,000 miles on it. After having a 2000 model 4x4 Extended Cab with 180,000 miles on it and my dad having a 89 model with well over 300,000 miles, i couldn't talk myself into nothing but a Toyota. And so it Began!

    Thanks! I was under very heavy debate on which wheel to get. At first I was going to go with the ballistic jester but I couldnt find it in stock anywhere. So then I came one ace on pulling the gun on the fuel Octanes before I went this route. But I believe I am very happy with my purchase, beautiful looking wheel imo.

    Haha good question. Well at first when we stuck it in it liked very very little to be able to clear. So we took it back out and thought we had it fixed! So we set it back down in there and then forgot but there is a metal piece that holds the seats down almost dead middle of the cab. After that we couldn't cut just the slit in the box to clear the metal support so we ended up having to cut the box into halfs and enclosing each of them. One box is a little longer than the other so someone told me i would get two different sounds out of the subs because they are pushing different air space but really nothing i can tell.

    So basically not for any real purpose but to clear the support bracket..

    P.S. Measure once, cut twice!.

    Haha, werd I was wondering why that is. It would look good if it was all one box. Maybe carpet the ends too!?

    Got the Eibachs on with the front Billies at .85 and I have to say I absolutely love the ride. Ride is super smooth and I can tell a big difference with the little offloading I have done in it so far. I added some more pictures of the truck since installing my rims and tires also and I have to say I'm very pleased with how it's turned out!

    Before the lift with my TSB done in the rear, from ground to fender I was at 34" in the front and 37" in the rear. With my new tires and lift in the front I am now 38 1/4" in the front and 39 1/4" in the rear!

    With the tires and everything all together I got about 4". A little over two with the lift but my stock tires were bald as can be so the other inch plus was from the new thread.
