    jberry's Do What I Want to Toy Taco

    Good day Reno4x4! Been lurking long enough, it's time to do a build thread.

    I grow tired of the retards and douchebags on Tacomaworld, and I'm a relatively recent Nevada resident (NV side of Tahoe) so I'm making Reno4x4 my new home. Starting a build thread after spending the last couple years building a truck up seems kind of anti-climactic, but what the hell! As the title suggests, I built my truck with the intent of driving it in every ecosystem possible. Whether its crawling, hauling ass in the desert, camping, or overlanding, I didn't want to restrict myself to a single type of offroading. I like doing a little bit of everything.

    Facts about my Truck:

    Vehicle

    Slide-in Bed Cage Adapter for Snowboard Rack, Bike Rack, and Roof Top Tent (Custom Built by Giant Motorsports)
    2 Pelican Cases for the Essentials
    Dual Vertical Spare Tire Cage split with a 2 Ton Harbor Freight Aluminum Jack
    2 NATO Gas Cans
    Pro Comp Tow Hooks

    Interior Goodies

    2 POS 10” Subs (but they do the job)
    Oznium Rocker Switches

    Crow Racing Lap Belts

    I've got a retarded amount of pictures of my truck as I've been building it, rebuilding it, replacing the engine, wheeling, etc etc etc.

    LOL. Not at all.
    Someone said I couldn't make my truck any blacker, so I took it as a challenge.

    Thanks man.
    You work at Bayshore? I think I may have talked to you on the phone before. I was looking to get a regear/locker done for the Tundy third member.

    As for the stiffy....surprisingly not the first time I've heard that. Shit like this happening while I'm asleep doesn't help things at all either

    Wow, quite the transformation between the mostly stocker one I had. Have you done anything about the seats? I couldn't stand the seats in mine, of course I bought it off of a "bigger" guy, so he may have beat the stuffing out of it, so to speak.

    Looks like a fun truck.

    His seats are still stock. I think he's keeping it that way til he gets an interior cage and harnesses

    ^What he said.
    Lots of people complain about the factory seats but I've never had any problems with them. I'm not a very big guy and the stockers work fine for me till I get suspension seats with the cage.
