Teehext's 2001 Prerunner

Current Pic



Bought my 2001 V6 Prerunner a few months ago as my new DD. I had to sell my 88' Suburban



Something about gas prices or something. These are my old toys



Found a good deal locally on this 2001 V6 automatic 180xxx miles, so I decided to pick it up and start making it desert worthy



First stuff I did was maintenance and repairs, trans fluid, diff fluid, valve cover gasket was leaking so replaced them, new window regulator, added the toolbox. Did the blinker relocation mod. Then I got tired of the stinkbug look, went 5100's all around, Eibach coils in front, new Dakar packs in the back, and 33x10.5x15 BFG All-Terrains.









I've been working on a Satoshi for a couple weeks, just need to get the mesh and stick it all back together. I think I want to de-chrome the truck, maybe paint the bumpers black to match the black Satoshi and derp the wheels. But I'm still debating...

Updates as I get stuff done! Future mods (because it's fun to dream) will be retros and LED bar, tube bumpers, UCA's, coughmidtravelcough, all that fun stuff...All in the distant future haha.

Itching for a bumper...

Tempting. I'll take them off tomorrow to see how it looks. I've seen a couple guys looking for them, why are they worth so much?

Thanks man! Don't look too close, it has it's fair share of dents and pinstriping haha. I was leaning toward a tube bumper, but a nice high-clearance plate bumper could still be an option. I want it to look clean with everything tucked up behind the bumper

That's the way I got my bumpers I wanted them to look like they came from the factory with after market bumpers and that's what I got. My swing out is flush right with the tailgate. I still have to do some adjusting on my arb when I get my winch put on but shouldn't be a big deal. Right now I'm trying to think of the next mod to do but idk? Any suggestions haha? Anyways man u got a sharp truck. The green and black is sweet how u got it. Tube bumper would look sick man imo. Let me know what all ull be doing to it.

The bumpers fit really clean on yours, especially the back. It'll be awhile before I save up enough but worth the wait haha. Yeah I'm thinking a tube with a skid, simple like this



But a lower and wider hoop. It will probably have to be custom

Love love love your stance its perfect

Did you notice a big power loss going to the 33x10.5x15 tire?

Did you try to run that tire when it was stock? Rubbing?
