Purchased July 1st 2017 with full intentions of an overland rig being inspired mainly by defconbrix's 2nd gen and immediately had to take it offroading to see what she can do

The mods started off slow till I won a giveaway on facebook from Boss 4x4 for toytec front adjustable coils which I paired with the rear shocks and add a leaf. I also removed the Tacoma Badge, everything off the back, and the TRD Offroad Stickers because offroading in that clay pretty much made all of those uncleanable, I like the sleek badgeless look anyhow.

A local 2nd gen owner has this incredible man cave with a lift for easy install

Then snagged a Leer XR cap off craigslist for $800 and of course had to grab the areushop amazon pro grill

Once I saved my pennies I was able to get some mobtown offroad sliders with a 285/75r16 st maxx for my method 305 nv's from a local shop in Jersey called TnT 4x4's

I primed and painted the sliders myself with some Rustollium

And as of now I just threw on my Uniden PR0250XL CB radio using the Ragofabrications taillight mount

Once I have the funds I will be upgrading the UCA to a delta joint from Icon and get pelfreybilt armor so I can carry that full sized spare on the back and just look cool driving around the mall parking lots. I have an offroad camping trip to Flagpole Knob in VA next month so I'll actually have some offroading pictures then.

Sexy truck. Welcome to T3G. How does it ride without the sway bar?

Figured I’d add some update to this but there isn’t much yet, I made a bed platform temporarily which actually I’ll make a full drawer system in a couple weeks, but I have ordered cbi front and rear bumpers I’m waiting for maybe another month. Besides adding a diff breather and removing my front plate it’s been saving money to go all out when these bumpers arrive!

Cbi rear high clearance dual swing arm installed only problem was cbi gave me the wrong lugs after I welded them on, was the wrong thread pattern 12x1.25 and I had to go to the store and look for it. Bbbuuuttttt cbi front bumper should be here eventually?
Nice! Is there some kind of a template they send with the bumper for the cuts on the bed? I ordered mine about 3 months ago and I'm still waiting... I bought both the CBI T3 front and the CBI high clearance rear bumper but I don't think I'm going to install the front now. I just love the stock look.

Also waiting on my t3 full hoops ordered in September came last Thursday (half of it) but no template just gotta measure like 7 times

Sweet truck man. It looks like you use your truck for what it’s built for!

Front bumper got installed today! Next will need to be skids, upper control arms, a lot of recovery gear, prinsu, snorkel, and then all of the lights. By then I’m sure my tires will be bald so regear and 35s. Itll be a long time but those are a big chunk of the next set of items to add.
