Modifications

Drivetrain
Ah. The fun part. My "Ranch". It's where I keep all 300 (give or take) horses lol. Run of the mill, nothing special 5VZ, babied with synthetic since day one (according to the previous owner). I continued the up keep. No leaks, minimal fuss from the motor. She's topped with a 4th gen (black) TRD supercharger, and fed with a modified K&n intake sourced from a '02 4Runner, a URD 2.2 pulley and 7th injector. It exhales through stock manifolds into a stock cat, then out through a Magnaflow straight through race muffler. The trans is rebuilt, with a Marlin Crawler 1/2 shift fork, new OEM syncros and bearings, and a Marlin Crawler 1200 lb HD clutch, and URD short throw shifter. It has been regeared to 4.56, using a junkyard front diff. Also, in the rear, I have a Detroit Trutrac, to help grab hold of something.
Interior
Spartan. Simple. Beat up a little lol.
Exterior
Stubbs welding HD-SKO sliders, ORW light bar with 2 6" KC Dayliters, pilot driving lights under bumper.
Audio
Kenwood deck with iPod controls, Kenwood speakers in the doors. Cobra 19 CB with a 4' firestik and PA for those pesky bicyclists who dare tempt the laws of physics and meander in front of the light bar.
Suspension
Starting at the front, the truck has Toytec ball joint spacers, and rides on Rancho RS9000 adjustables, though eventually it will be on Bilstein 5100's. Steering is stock, save for a Rancho RS9000 stabilizer sourced froma 3/4 ton Dodge, and a Autozone idler arm equipped with SDORI brass bushings and a Downey offroad idler arm brace. I the rear, I have Toytec 3" lift shackles, stock worn leaf packs, all-pro u-bolt flip with axle shock mounts, and a BAMF LSPV bracket.
Wheel and Tire
Currently, I have a set of rattle can black stock Toyota Tundra hurricane style steelies with Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs in the 265/75R16 variety, but I also have a set of black steel "D" window wheels sitting in the garage.

Update- as of 6/17/14, I'm putting on stock 16 inch steel wheels off of a 05+ Tacoma. I've got spidertrax 1.25 spacers for the front, as the stock T100 wheels have about a half inch more back spacing than the Tacoma wheels.
