So it's been a very long time since I've been on TRS. I had a 2010 Ranger that I traded for a 09 Tacoma.

This was the Ranger

Back in November 2012 I traded it for my Tacoma and heres the build for it.

The day I took it home.


I kept if bone stock for a few months till I got around to installing my CB


It sat that way for the longest time. I did paint the chrome grill but it started to flake apart from the Calgary winter.


Then in Sept 2014 I picked up some 265/75/16 Duratracs for it along with ditch lights and mounts

Then in January 2015 I impulse bought an ARB bumper


Around the same time I got the bumper I replaced my CB with a Cobra 29XLBT. At some unknown time during my build I also got a Core/Hurst short throw shifter.



Heres my light switch setup, I have my old KC Daylighters on the bumper


Then in Feb I moved back home to Nova Scotia from Alberta and bought some Fox 2.0 rear shocks


I picked up a TRD front skidplate in March I believe and ordered a 3" Pro Comp lift




Beginning of May it was finally warm enough to install the lift so we go that in. a few weeks ago I went to town with plastidip and did the rims and all the badges and the grill


I recently picked up some 35s for a steal of a price $250 for all 4 with jeep rims.


In order to fit those tires you have to do a lot of cutting which is where I am at now. Yesterday we pulled the flares and cut the fenders by 3" now I have to cut the flares and my cab mounts. Then get the tires mounted on my rims and I'll be good to go.
Tapped up building up the nerve to make the first cut




This is how she looks now
