TacoREX 3RZ Second Wind


Updated - July 31st, 2014

2001 Tacoma 2.7 3rz-fe 4x4

Picked up this truck from a good friend Decemeber 2013 with burnt valves, worn tires, dents, and about 5lbs of Malamute hair. Over the course of two days my wife and I set up shop on our gravel driveway under the carport. Built a temporary deck out of 7/16" OSB to roll the new (110k salvage) motor into place with and pulled the swap. Now 15k later, the truck is running strong and I'm upgrading other parts that 215k miles of wear have impacted.

Got my IPfs installed thanks to a new(ish) billet grill from 552Jrider! Busted up the clips on the turn signals, so new ones are in the mail.

My overbuilt light bar, I call it a mini headache rack

Got the lumber rack I've been dreaming of, spent two nights filling in the gaps between the feet. Just in time for rains! Soon the shell will go on as well!
