    How She sits today.

    First thing after I got it, had to put a Driveshaft Bearing.

    Next I put new headlights, and painted the plastic bumper black.

    Then I painted the Back Window Trim Black. And Polished the Toolbox.

    New Real Tree Camo Seat Covers.
    [​IMG]

    New Mossy Oak Camo Floor Mats.
    [​IMG]

    Sony XPLOD Head Unit, Alpine Amp, and 2x Jlaudio 10" Subs, and 2 new Kenwood door speakers.
    [​IMG]

    Custom Center Console to go over the 60/40 seats.
    [​IMG]

    One of my favorites, the New Flowmaster 40 with new dual tailpipes, and 3" x 16" Tips.
    [​IMG]

    The stock air intake has a really bad design with all of the angles and distance, so I put in a K&N High Performance Intake. Along with new radiator hoses, valve cover gasket, and belts.

    Up in the fender well was really ugly so I painted it black.

    There was a dent in the bumper when I got the truck so today I took the bumper off and beat the dent out.

    I mother's polished the wheels and then when I wash them with grease lightning it streaked them and removed the clear coat on the wheels. So I didn't have much of a choice but to paint them. I used 3 coats of Duplicolor Wheel Paint and 2 coats of Duplicolor Clear Coat.

    The leaf springs that were on the truck were 5 inches too short ( they didn't even go on a toyota) and the shocks were for a toyota with no lift. So we took everything out.
    We put in new:
    Bilstein 5125 Shocks
    Stock Leaf Springs
    Pro Comp AAL
    [​IMG]


    Some other things that I don't have pictures of are new:
    FlyWheel
    Complete Clutch
    Clutch Fork
    Main Seal

    It is a 1995 Tacoma 4cyl 4wd 5spd with 175k miles
    33 x 12.50's Mickey Thompson Tires
    16" Wheels
    Manual Locking Hubs
    5" of lift in the rear, 4" in the front

    What wheels are those? They look great, and I am having a hard time finding some wheels that will fit over the manual locking hubs in my 97 4wd

    The wheels came on the truck and I painted them black. As far as what brand or where to get any more I am not sure about that. They did rub the UCA and the UCA was trimmed by the previous owner instead of getting spacers.

    Heres a picture of the rubbing/trimmed UCA.
