Been a member on here long enough so figured I ought to start a build. I bought this cherry two owner grandpa truck a little over a yr and half ago
02 V6 5spd 4x4 TRD package with 148k on it. This is after getting it home and selling the camper shell. I rocked it for a little while but an open bed and tool box fits my needs much better.
Keep it stock minus cutting out the front of the air box to let it breathe a little better. When I bought I told myself I'd keep it stock for a year, kinda wish I said fuck it to begin with and mod from the beginning, lost a whole yr of wheeling because of that decision.
Did mess around with a few things for the first year though. Cleaned the headlights up.
First thing I wanted to take care of was the susp, tires, and armor.
Tires I got off a budd of mine. Wheels are mid 80s Toyota wheels and 32x11.50 Hankooks. Even being a little worn I love this tire and size, will be getting new ones here soon.
Suspension I went with 5100 billys set at 2.5 and daystar 1.25 shackle. I will be adding 882 and building a bastard aal for the rear.
For armor I went with a set of Ryno Offroad skids.
Haven't had a chance to try these out much on the rock but they will be bounced off of plenty of rocks this wheeling season. I will be building a rear bumper and sliders here soon, school and work have got me busy.
Since I do camp alot I decided to build some sort of rack. Got bored one morning since I didn't have work and came up with this. The rack is off my dads subby he never uses. Good thing because I like it to much to give it back.
I frequently find my truck having shit in the bed for camping or hauling random stuff so the aal will be an extra 3 leafs to make a 6 leaf pack. Hopefully my current pack isn't too far gone. This stuff doesn't help at all.
