    thanks guys for the praise. honestly I couldnt have done it without all your help. I used to just troll on the forum boards for a long time. a lot of the inspiration came from the members itself.

    In a small amount of time the truck went thru some major changes. First was the drop kit. I had a Sittin Sic Kit, but when I saw Ryan's truck (BlastaP) I knew DJM is the way to go.
    If you look at my sig this is the only pic i have my truck when it was COMPLETELY stock and I've kept the sig to remind me where my truck started.

    The first thing i got was the TRD s/c. It was probably out for only 2 or 3 months and I couldnt wait any longer. Engine work was the first thing I did.

    The truck is s/c and test driving the new pulleys. You can see the stockers and stock ride height.

    [​IMG]
    When I had the SS Kit and I just got my Ray Volks in black. At the time I thought it was nice and I truly was contempt with my truck.

    [​IMG]
    My truck is on the left and Grumpy's is on the right. This shows the transition to DJM

    [​IMG]

    At about the same time I went DJM. I started audio work. These pics just show the preliminary work.

    [​IMG]
    The begining of blacking out the interior. I really wasnt happy with the grey and how it showed a lot of imperfections in the car. It was my Daily so it had a lot of wear and tear showing.

    These last three pics are pretty close to what my truck is today without the new shoes and new seats.
    I just noticed that I havent even done the EVO mod in these pics yet.

    [​IMG]
    Pic is of my clutch after the first Texfest. Took a group of us about 2.5 hours to put in a new one. Pretty insane.
