    After some careful consideration (this could change), I have decided to name my truck build Grunt, after the MOS 0311 in the USMC.

    I've owned a 2008 Silver Sky TRD DC which I traded for a 2014 Magnetic Gray Metallic TRD CM and I've since traded that for my 2016 Silver Sky TRD CM.

    I bought the truck February 14, 2016 and a week or two after it I ordered all of my parts. Everything was installed over a 4 day span and I was left with my gorgeous bitch! I said that was all I was going to spend and I kept buying more and more, I'm still not done! :taco:. My initial budget for a "leveling kit, wheels and tires" was $2,500ish, that changed really fast.

    Future plans are more than likely going to be a Magnuson supercharger setup. Tow mirrors are on the way at the moment and I am more than likely going to do some sort of retrofit soon.

    There will be a bunch of small things in this list that are irrelevant, but it's a good place for me to keep a running total :p.

    Exterior mods:
    Magnum RT front bumper- $800
    Magnum RT rear bumper- $800
    Magnum RT steps- $200
    Smittybilt - X2O 12K GEN2 winch- $589
    BAMuffler budget dump- $379
    TRD Pro Grill and hood bulge- $320
    Winjet taillights- $185
    5% carbon window tint all around- $300

    Interior mods:
    Complete LED lighting- $40
    Husky front liners- $95
    Weathertech rear liners- $95
    Complete audio package from James Taylor- $569


    Lighting:

    6k LED headlights- $150
    22 inch LED lightbar- $200
    40 watt LED pods- $100
    VLED swithback DRL- $153


    Suspension:
    Pro Comp Stage 2 kit with coilovers- $2299
    Coachbuilder steering kit- $375
    Coachbuilder shackles- $275
    Coachbuilder front shims- $36
    Polyurethane bushing kit- $45
    TRD rear sway bar- $250


    Wheels and tires:
    Fuel Pump 18x9 with 1.25 Spidertrax spacers- $360
    35 inch Toyo Open Country R/T- $1356
    Lug nuts- $34.99
    Mount and balance- $40
    Spare wheel- $190
    SpiderTrax 1.25 spacers- $260

    Shipping costs for everything- $150ish
    Install cost-$1,400



    I have never totaled it up until now, but I just did and I want to vomit :sick:

    Grand total= $12,045.99

    Let's put this into perspective, this is my loan for my truck..... I could have it paid off already, but who wants to adult? It's no fun!!!

    Anyways..... :worthless:

    Trading my 2014 in for the 2016

    Two days later, window tint
    [​IMG]

    First Foam Canon bath. If you don't have one 10/10 would buy again. They're made my Chemical Brothers on Amazon. To this day I have never scrubbed my truck. I spray on the foam, let it sit for 10 minutes, spray off. No water spots or anything
    [​IMG]

    A few weeks later. One of the happiest days of my life!
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    4 days later....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I literally took 200 photos that day ^^^

    This was the day my headlights came
    [​IMG]

    Note to self, don't give a blonde a knife to cut the dust shield for the new LED bulb, she WILL stab a knife through her hand.... This was 8 hour later, kept bursting with blood randomly. I even super glued it shut about 10 times haha.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Extremely bright light (No I don't drive at night) I would get pulled over in a second haha
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    No, my truck is not always clean, I wash it every 2 weeks. My driveway is always a mud hole. We don't have paved roads where I live and I am on the top of a mountain. This is my favorite picture, though ♥

    They were just some cheap lights from China that blew on me, now they're the OPT7 LEDs from Amazon. Probably won't be much better than the previous bulbs, but they will do until I can order my other light bars and figure out what I am doing with my retrofit.

    Great pics and outstanding mods! You may want to get a pair of titanium gloves though when you work with cutting instruments LOL! The same thing happens to me it seems when I get around anything sharp when working on my truck....

    I definitely don't have "girl hands" haha. I have burn marks from all of the headers I've done on my Cobras alone with other scars from cutting myself reaching down in tight spaces under the hood haha. I just never cared too much to wear gloves or anything :p.

    Any time there is a knife around and I am working on a car or truck I always seem to cut myself with it though haha.

    Thank you very much! :)

    Thank you I do as well! I was initially going to do the AMP steps but a friend told me to ditch them and get the bumpers and steps. I am SO glad I did, I think they make the truck :).


    Don't hate your truck :D. Thank you, though! Will do!


    My center console. My truck is literally empty at all times haha. I don't like the under seat storage idea for my truck because I use the inside of my truck more for hauling than the bed. The only thing I use the bed for is my quad.

    Haha thanks! I have the LP LED, it came with the magnum bumpers. It's kind of generic, though. Actually tinting my stock tails as we speak, I despise the Winjets. See the tiny hook above the tag? That's the LED, it's shitty haha.

    Mud flaps should go :cool:
    Maybe a tire rack in the rear? Or will that interfere with the quad?

    It's about time you got on here Manmeter! Good to see you here!

    The truck is looking awesome. I need to pick up some Chemical Guys products like the foam cannon, etc. Glad to hear some good feedback on it. I bought a DA buffer and some pads from them (black truck, love/hate relationship).

    :D. Yeah the cannon is awesome as long as you have a pressure washer. I don't think it works with a hose.

    I don't miss having a black vehicle. Not one bit haha. Miss that black bike though :(

    Thanks :). As far as the cut, I'm used to them haha. I was on the phone when it happened. The knife went about halfway in my hand and I stopped for a second and said "Fuck, I stabbed through my hand, if I take this out, blood will go everywhere and I need to finish working on my truck". Didn't give a shit about muscle damage or anything, just wanted my headlights back in haha!

    If I cut halfway into my hand, I'd probably cry and then pass out.

    Got to "hand" it to you, Grunt looks incredible. Awesome build!

    I also miss my old bike, though I don't think I will ever ride street again. If anything it would be a Harley. Flat black though, no swirls.

    On the chemical guys foam cannon, are you using the one that attaches to a pressure washer or running an adapter to use a garden hose? Also, are you using their brand of detergent? Just bought some of their wax and love their products.
