silbotta's build

Bought this Taco in May. Was a jeep guy before, had 3 jeeps. Decided to switch over.

98 2.7L, 216k miles, not sure what lift it has on it, was told it is a 3", there are coil spacers upfront, and blocks on the rear leafs.

This is what it looks like today.



Bought All Pros tube bumper





Painted and mock up.


Done with Xrc8 winch.




Got front windows tinted and put on a husky toolbox i had from a frod ranger i had.

How it as of looks today.

You're off to a decent start with the allpro bumper & the addition of a winch, I think your next MOD should be to lift that truck proper like thru suspension, & it doesn't have to cost an arm & leg, dump the block & add 2 Chevy truck springs per side for a 3" lift in rear, get some Bilstein 5125's from DSMS for the rear & some 5100's for the front with some Eibach 3" lift coils for the front, you could do all this for about $600 & change...

this is looking nice got the same truck near the same miles. When you plan on rebuilding the engine or has it been done already? Also i agree with 4WD you need to do a suspension lift get rid of the blocks in the rear
