Well, this is a multi purpose thread. I would like to showcase the evolution of my truck (again because of these dumb new forums) and also to bid farewell to Toyota Nation. I really dislike the new format, and it now takes way too much of my time to navigate all this junk. So, I have made some cool friends, learned some good info, but I left with the old TN. So, with no further delay, Frankie, TN's most infamous Standard Cab:

As an absolute Virgin, the morning I brought her home.

That of course didn't last long. BHLM and blacked out emblem.


Tinted tails, debadged, toolbox, and the sticker that gave my truck a personality.

Finally got some real tires.

But then I had to lift it of course.

And, after you lift it, you have to go offroading.

And once, you go offroading, you have to go again.

Got a new exhaust done, just to be loud and obnoxious.

Painted my stock grille black.

Bronzed the stock wheels, because spray paint is cheap.

Then I hit a damn dog.

Got a solid rear window out of Total Chaos' 5-lug project truck.

Then I got her all fixed up pretty.


More offroading.

Got some much better suspension pieces, Allied spindles, TC UCAs and Bilstein 5100s.

New ground clearance is amazing.

Re-did the BHLM, again for the third time.

Bought brock's DMZ spare tire carrier.

Got some new wheels, Konig Coutersteer Offroads.

Bolted down an ammo box for a little offroading toolbox.

Cool thread...one my favorites here too. It has been cool to see your rig being built up. Sorry to see you go. I am not digging the new TN but I guess I'll have to get used to it.
