Well I figured it was time to make a build thread for my new ride.






But first I figure i'll start off with a little background story about my previous D-Max.

In February of 2013 I bought my first diesel pickup. I had been wanting one for years, and after a year of hard core saving I decided to pull the trigger on one.

It was an 07 extended cab LBZ with 96,000ish miles on it. It wasn't exactly what I was looking for but I was tired of waiting and it was within my price range. In the end I was extremely pleased with my purchase and loved it to death!


Not long after buying her. At this point the window tint was all I had added :neener




First major mod was exhaust. MBRP 4" turbo back no muffler, with cheapo ebay tip.


Then came EFI. Kory's 30,60,100,120,150 tunes with dsp5

Shortly after tunes came a new fuel filter, pulled the rail fitting and ported it out to I believe 3/32"(don't remember), and FPRV Shims (P0087 code :rolleyes:)

After that we were in business for awhile, at least until the fuel filter had seen a few miles :thumb



Then came new wheels and tires.
BMF 20x10 S.O.T.A, 0 offset, wrapped in 305/55/20 Nitto's

(Debadged, and glow shift gauges somewhere along the line as well)

Then after and extended period of time I decided to build a bumper









Random picture of her doing some work with the new bumper



Then on January 25th of 2014 the life of the LBZ came to a sad end.

The Day I brought her home





Cranked torsion bars, dropped the side steps, and pulled the tip off.





Then came new shoes :drink (recognize these Heyyaa)
Also did large fender mod to fit said shoes.

What happened with the LBZ?

Sent from AutoGuide.com Free App
Got hit crossing an intersection. Insurance ended up with it. I would have liked to keep it to part it out but I wouldn't have been able to afford the new lmm if I would have bought the lbz back.
