New rig! Been shopping around for a new truck for about a year, originally was looking at a second gen Tacoma, didn't work out. Realized I can get a 3/4 ton for the price if not less than a used prerunner. With me going to school for welding and the jobs im wanting to get into a 3/4 would be a better fit in the long run. Ended up buying a 1999 Dodge 2500 cummins turbo diesel with a 5-speed standard. Had some goodies on it already and got a killer deal on it. Truck has only 98,000 miles and its a 99 while my 98 Tacoma has 264,000. The dodge is basically a big version of my Tacoma. Mods it came with were mods I was gonna do anyway and worked out cheaper buying it with them then adding them after.
If yall are interested I will continue to post pics of mods, I understand its not a Tacoma but its still a project I can work on and enjoy. I will miss my Tacoma but this is a way better fit for me.
