How far has your truck come?

This thread was Brian's idea (Beefed Taco). We thought it was funny how "into our trucks" we were way back, so we thought it would be cool to talk about and show how far your truck has come since you got it. In between shots are good to, to show what transitions it went through.
I'll start.
This is a pic from the first day I got my truck. 6 years ago


This is my truck at a car show 2 years ago. I was pretty into it! haha. Now that I look back it was a pretty cheezy setup.


This was the car show 2 weeks ago. She's come a long way!




Now lets see yours! It doesn't matter how big or small the changes are. Lets hear your story!

Re: How far has your truck come?

ooh, ooh, me next,

first there was my 07 base model auto with just the BHLM and painted tails (cant find a shot before all that


then came some wheels that i got from a guy on here (i think 01rocktaco or something)


then traded the cragars for some mustang gt wheels i painted black


then it got lowered with the djm kit, x-r front springs and shocks, qa1 rear adjustable shocks and a hellwig rear sway


then, about this time last year, this happened (one and a quarter barrel roll...)


then i bought this from a guy off here (as it sat when i drove it out of his storage lot)





right after getting it home i pulled the bumper and grill off and painted the chrome and debadged the doors


and then just recently i turbo'd it (old pic, some things have changed)


I like Toyotas.

I agree, if it wasnt such a pain I would swap to a 5 speed.

Re: How far has your truck come?

Nothing dramatic just a drop and 2 different sets of wheels. Paint is beat up.

Re: How far has your truck come?

Chris, I think you passed over a monumental period for your truck! The 50's style fender cover phase!
