Default Phil's Build Thread

So I guess the thing to do is start a build thread to see the evolution of or vehicles.... Well mine has come a long way and Ill do my best to have a nice thread. I tried hard but could not fine any bone stock pics, but I really wasnt into this stuff yet. I bought my truck used in June of 2006. Its an 05' V6 Sport 4x4.

I was going to get a brand new one ( 2006 ) but my buddy at Roseville Toyota saved me 10K by getting a one year old ride, so thats what I got.

New meats.... 265/70/17 TOYO MT with no lift



Decided to get rid of the running boards


Started looking online and found yotatech.com........ decided to get a 2.5" daystar spacer lift and new rims and bigger tires....TOYO MT 285/75/17. Rubbed like hell!!! Found out that I needed to trim like hell!!! I could barely turn. I trimmed like hell and got the body mount chop by a buddy of mine. Was running 33.8" MT with only 2.5" spacer lift. After cuts, not much rubbing at all.



I really wanted more lift so I got the RB 1.5" body lift. And took it to get dirty.




That still wasnt good enough!! So I got SAW 2.0's for the front and OME 895, Icon mono tubes for the rear + 1.5" spacer. And went to 35" Procomp Xtreme MT's...Yeah Buddy!!!






HID Conversion to 8000k and Fog light MOD



New muffler and I cut the rear resonator and had the muffler installed much higher for better clearance. Had the pipe cut right over the frame and chrome tip reinstalled .





Truck bed liner'd the frame




SIRIUS Radio/ IPOD interface/ Bluetooth





Old Thule roof Rack..... Sold it and got the Rola


New Rola Rack/w extension and extra mounting cross bar.

No,i didn't.When i had my SWR checked the guy said,i didn't need to.I may move the firestik to the front bumper like Mark and Andries did once my bumper ever gets here.Btw they drilled holes in there SW bumpers to mount there antennas.

Put a few pics of the bumper up. Still gotta have it painted, and the tube on the sides put on.... We still gotta make the gas can holders. 2- total, one on each side. High lift mount is gonna be under the tire on the swingout. I need to get a license plate holder too. Finish is gonna be a black textured coating like the demello sliders. You can stand on the swingout.... 3000lb axle hub!!! Ill take more pics after its painted.

Looking good dude! Don't like the antenna position tho. Branches will grab it and swing it around possibly bending or tearing off the mount too. I'd agree with looking at putting a ball on it at least. I also think your going to find comm's will be pretty ineffective there because the body will shield (and reflect) wave signals from it. Your ground plane is best being a horizontal metal surface with equal surface in all directions.

Do anything about that large gap on the sides or just leaving it as is?

Looking great Phil. Can't wait to see it all finished up. I wanna know also whether you were gonna fix the gap up top or just leave it there. Also, did you ever get your front bumper moved up? How did that work out for you?

The setup should suit your needs really well.

EDIT:
just saw this "Gonna have a tube on the sides (in an arc, where gap is, and LED square lights uner tails for)"

looks like its getting take care of.
