Trusso24's LT Build

So, this is my build thread, finally.

The trucks being built fully in house front to back at Dezert Toy Fabrications by @DTF_Tony

It will be decal'd with a Dezert Toy Fabrications sticker on the cab and a DTF grille emblem, being one of the OG DTF trucks.

I originally wanted an expo/overland build but (mistakenly) went to the Pismo meet in 2013 and was forever bit by the Long Travel bug.

After months doing research and collecting parts and communicating with DTF from across the US(Thanks for putting up with me!)

1999 Extended Cab Tacoma 3.4L

Installed
TRD 3.4 Supercharger
UMP Air Intake
Cab Cage

Being Built
Backhalf
3-Link Rear End
5" Over Dezert Toy Fab Race Kit
Tie Cage Front to Rear Bumper to Bumper

Goodies Purchased
URD 7th Injector
35" BFG Baja ATs
15" Methods
McNeil Fenders/Bedsides
Second Gen Rear End (Locked and Geared at 4.56)
18" SAW 2.5" Triple Bypass

Goodies Wanted
URD 2.2" Pulley
Supercharger Hood

Here's some pictures to start.

We were going to go with a simple bolt on kit with spindle gussets and a leaf sprung setup / bed cage but that evolved into this...







I'll update this later once I'm on my computer!

Yeah bro we got the link supplies in. I believe I have 4.5, that was before the full kill build. I will probably be going to a one piece clip or a supercharger hood with 6" flares.

The link connections have begun and the front kit will be finished in Early summer.

Haha your to blame! You took me off my first jumps! I haven't driven my truck since around that last meet, in April.

DTF will have the trucks in his shop done before we realize it, then it looks like yours is next?!
