SLOW ass Tacoma build

i bought my 04 tacoma in 2007,its a 3.4, 5 speed, non trd, ext cab. was never going to be a wheeler, i got it so i would not have to drive my 4runner around any more. well i got rid of the 4runner, then got an ext cab 85 then sold it now i have sami and now sold that and only have the Tacoma. so im going to do lite wheeling with my Tacoma. so this is how it was when i bought it.


my wife told me it look like an old man truck so i got a little lift for it. put some 31s on it, flowmaster muffler and some nice 15x8 black rims.


and 31s are just to small so i got some big ass 32s haha . every year we have winter fun fest in grass valley. not having a good wheeler i took my tacoma and drove it like it was a tuff truck. here are some pix of the day.
