    Alright, I've done enough random shit to the truck that I feel compelled to make a build thread. My trusty steed is a 2007 DC SB 4x4 OR. Got it with around 79k miles on her right before Christmas 2011. She's up to 125k as of Christmas 2014.

    As she is today:

    [​IMG]

    Current mods include:

    Suspension
    Bilstein 5100 adjustables @ 2.5"
    OEM coils
    Wheeler's 1.5" AAL

    Exterior
    TJM T15 bumper
    Mudflap delete mod

    Wheels and Tires
    Stock 16" TRD OR rims
    285/75/16 General Grabber A/T²

    Boy when you type it out, it makes you realize what a slacker you are...

    When I first got her home.

    Like I said, it ain't nothing special or anything compared to what some of you guys have. Yet. But she's gettin there, slowly but surely!

    thanks! slowly comin along!

    It works great so far. Haven't been doing much trailing to use it a lot, but i know it works good up to a couple miles. and yea, it's got a PA and a speaker output, but I dont have either, yet.

    Then I put on a bull bar.

    [​IMG]

    Then I put lights on said bull bar.

    [​IMG]

    Then I put in an iPod plug in. This was a fairly simple project that involved some trial and error.

    [​IMG]

    The Cobra CB install.

    The lift:

    The lift was Bilstein 5100s up front @ 2.5, stock coils. The rear was a 1.5" AAL.

    Before


    [​IMG]

    Holy shit! Is that me, actually working on something?!? :D

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Fuck the sway bar...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And voila, the after...(I didn't take pictures of the rear add-a-leafs. That was a very painstaking process and we were fighting daylight.)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This past week my brother gifted me with a brand new set of 285/70/17s.

    Gotta get right size rims and spacers, but in due time...


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then my buddy trdNick gifted me these bed racks to mount my spare and some backwards facing lights on.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Putting on some bedliner:

    [​IMG]

    Bedliner-ed bull bar skid plate.

    [​IMG]

    No more chrome shaft!
    (shrink wrap)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Bedliner-ed the front emblem.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    Some "action" shots!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Here are my awesome window stickers! :cool:

    [​IMG]


    I have also done the Fog Light Anytime mod. :p

    And I just put in yellow Nokya 2500k fogs. They aren't extremely bright, not being HID. But they're for the looks. :rolleyes:

    [​IMG]

    ^^Shitty iPhone picture^^

    Nokya 5000k headlights to arrive between tomorrow and Monday! :D:D:D

    Nice shifter. I've done the exact same thing, except there is no chrome showing on mine. That little chrome ring around the bottom should come off if you want to black it out too!

    I've also blacked some other interior items. Entire shift console, coin tray.

    How did you do up your IPod connection?

    I might do that, been contemplating doing the toyota emblem on the steering wheel too.

    Here's the link to the write up (not mine) on how to do the iPod input. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/au...iy-aux-input-2005-2008-factory-head-unit.html

    Put in the order of a TJM T15 bumper today. Hopefully it doesn't take long to get here because I am shakin in my VANS and bout to pee myself with excitement.

    Oh. Changed my front/rear diff and transfer case fluids. Had never been done prior, quite obviously (at 109k). First for me and the truck. :D

    My genius self finally decided to look for those weldnuts in the roof. Now a roof rack build is in the preliminary design phase. AutoCAD...engage.
