    figured id go ahead and start a build thread since I never made one for my black Tacoma.
    this build (SHOULD) be short and sweet but I seem to have mod-itis when it comes to my trucks so I guess time will only tell the truth. already got her waxed and ready for some cosmetics
    so far the mods are very light, but I got something a little extreme in the works
    my first home pic, needs tint and some color matching done but winter is almost here so maybe this coming spring ill get some painting done.
    so far im loving the truck and definitely loving the power increase over the V6 Tacoma, and im impressed that im getting about the same gas mileage.
    more pics and updates to come! :spy:

    Nice! I moved up from my tacoma as well and never had a build thread for that. I am on probation right now with the new truck as I have to save up for a wedding first...perhaps a build thread post wedding will be in order.

    gotta love spending 3 grand on a "100% bolt on kit" and you gotta buy parts for it... pitiful business ethics, especially when I specifically asked if those exact parts are included! :annoyed:

    Brake lines and brake line brackets, a couple different bolts were not included or not the right size.
    also nothing to do with the kit but one of my alignment bolts had been crossthreaded and the thread are gone from both the alignment bolt and the nut
    hopefully ill still have the truck back by this weekend

    I want to fix my grill like yours with the Toyota logo and all black. Where can I go to purchase? Also do I buy the chrome in black or dip them?
