Project "Honey Badger"

This build started shortly after i traded in my Radiant Red 2007 Tundra for a 2011 Black Tundra the build started in June 2011. I will try and go in order of mods.

The first Mod I did was add steps and tint the windows



The next Mod I did was add a Ready Lift 3/1 kit



Then I started upgrading the stereo
Head Unit Pioneer Avic Z130BT
Hybrid Audio 6.5" front door speakers
Hybrid Audio Clarus Tweeters
JL Audio C2 6.5" Rear Speakers
JL Audio 8W7 subwoofer in stealth box
Audison Bit 10D Sound Processor
Arc Audio Amp to power sub
JL Audio Amp to power the other speakers









I then deployed to Iraq for 4 months and came back and decided to upgrade my suspension

7" BDS Lift
Icon Coilovers
Icon UCA's
Icon Rear Piggyback Shocks
20x12 -44 offset Fuel Hostage Wheels
35x12.5x20 Toyo MT tires











I then decided to add leather seats and got a deal on Clazzio leather seats





Next I upgraded my front end with a grillecraft black mesh grille and line ex'd the lower part of my front bumper



I then added a Ansani Designs light pod insert and had Ninja Ed do a BHLM on my lights i also added an N10CE fabs upper grille insert and Oracle 30" scanner bar, I also added spikes to my bushwacker flares



I then added Horn Blasters 540 Train Horns



I then deployed to Kuwait and left my truck with my buddy Jeff who runs N10CE fab. I told him i wanted him to build me an awesome front bumper and something that was a game changer. Below is what I came back to.





The light bar is a 40" Oracle Off Road light bard the little spot lights are Magna LED spot and flood lights the bumper is sprayed in Line Ex Premium with UV top coat

While I was deployed i contacted Royalty Core and told them I want an amazing grille and this is what they sent me.



I also wanted to change the look of my headlights and got in contact with the best in the business Joe aka Big Tundra. The headlights are OEM Toyota Tundra Headlights painted color match 202 and retrofitted with morimoto mini D2S projectors from the Retrofit Source, halos around the high and low beam are Oracle Color Shift halos and the rings around the projector shrouds are Plasma LED halos. Joe did an amazing job with my lights and am grateful for his awesome work.

























N10CE Fabs Colorshift Control Box Cover



I then contacted my buddy Bear at TB Customz and had him send me some heavy Artillery



With the new front bumper i gained more clearance so it was time to step up to 37's Nitto Trail Grapplers





I also ditched the 4" BDS rear blocks and added 4.5" Skyjacker leaf springs and Camburg Shackles



I added new 50" Pro Comp Traction bars these just were redesigned and released last week





I added an ARE LSX tonneau cover





I had a local bike shop that specializes in custom paint jobs paint my tail lights they came out amazing and are legal because there is still visible red reflector and turn signals




I upgraded to Tow mirrors, and added LED grille lights and interior lights. The only mods I left to do are 4.88gears which I got an awesome deal through a member in our club and possibly add a supercharger on down the road.

Here are some pics of how the truck looks today. I have a ton of pics and am sure i missed some things. Feel free to ask me any questions you might have and I hope you enjoyed my build pics. I have so many people that helped with this build but the main folks i'd like to say thanks to are Ninja Ed who inspired me to do this build, Joe Horton aka Big Tundra, Bear Stewart from TB Customz, Shawn Lucero, Ryan Lewis, Ryan Inman, Jonathan Barber, Rob Eckhart, Jon Webb, Jeff Obremski from N10CE fab, Best Muffler Shop, 4-Wheel Parts, 4 The Truck, Devious Designs, Performance Audio I am sure I have forgot a few people and I apologize.











I recently added a Compustar remote start/alarm with Drone Mobile module. The Drone Mobile module enables me to lock/unlock start my truck view status of my truck battery amps, and location of my truck. Instead of using a pansy siren for the alarm I had them integrate my Horn Blasters 540 train horns so anyone who trys to break in my truck will be both scared shitless and deaf, not to mention all my neighbors will wake up really quick as well lol. I also have my train horn hookedup to my Aux 1 input on my keyfob so I can remote train horn from my key fob or from my iphone makes for some good entertainment at shows and meets. I also had my 42" Light bar setup as Aux 2 so I can turn it on with a push of a button. I think the remote start and alarm was prob one of the smarter mods I did because we put so much $$$$ into our rides and the factory Toyota system just doesnt cut it, so i figured it was time to step my game up on security.

Santa came early 4.88 gears going in on Monday
