2000 Tacoma LT 4x4 Reg Cab "Martha"

In July of this year, I sold my comfy DD 2012 mid travel 4x4 Tacoma and bought a 2014 Prius as a DD and a 2000 Tacoma as a dirt truck. This truck has a lot of work already completed and is about 80% done for what I want it to do. I intend to drive it to and from the desert for off road trips and occasionally drive it on the weekends. With the help of my fiancé I named her "Martha".

Specs:
2000 Toyota Tacoma reg cab
2.7 4 cylinder (3RZ)
5 speed
4x4

Suspension:
Total Chaos front LT kit
King 2.5x8" coil overs
Deaver F67 62" leaf pack
Total Chaos 12" shackles w/gussets
King 3.0"x16" Race triple bypasses
Total Chaos shock tower gussets

Wheels/tires:
Method double standard 15x8" w/3.5" BS
BFG 33x12.5r15 tires

Drivetrain:
4.10 gears
Warn manual hub conversion
LT 4x4 axles
K&N CAI

Safety:
Richer Racing cab cage connected from front bumper to rear bumper and engine cage
Giant race seats w/Crow 5 Pt harnesses

Exterior:
Tundra one piece hood conversion
Glassworks bedsides

Lights:
Rigid 30" Amber bar on front bumper
Amber rear facing dust light

Parts to be installed:
King 2.5"x8" triple bypasses for the front

To-Fix:
Replace lower ball joints
Replace LT kit bushings with Delrin
Repaint LT kit

Future mods:
Race radio
Front skid plate
Flat cargo rack for rear storage
EBC brake rotors and pads
Solo Motorsports 4x4 spindles w/uniball
Solo Motorsports heim steering

Here is what she looked like the day I got her. She really needed some TLC in the form of rustoleum black paint. All of the tubing from the front bumper to the rear bumper needed to be cleaned and painted. There were cobwebs all over the place


I picked up some Method Double Standards 15"x8" w/3.5" BS the day I brought her home.

Here she is getting some new springs in the form of some F67 Deavers, with TC 12" shackles. The Truck Shop in San Diego did the install and are great guys that do great work.

Bought Martha some 8" Baja Designs HID lights for the roof. The 5 light bar has 3 driving and 2 spot lights. I'm going to convert one of the spots to driving pattern.

Probably only going to run four since the truck is already tabbed for a 4 light Baja Designs light rack. The extra fab work isn't worth running the extra light to me.

Beating on a 30k truck and then hoping it takes you to work on Monday is no bueno. Plus they are really heavy and the parts you need for them are HD and more $$$$. But man they are fast and look sexy when they are built. Can't argue with that.

Probably not to Glamis. I am taking her out next weekend on her initial shakedown run. Hopefully I fixed all the bugs that I have been finding the past few months.

Martha did really well out there but the rear bypasses need to be re-valved softer and I have to add some bypasses to the front.

I just picked up some 2.5"x8" King triple bypasses so next time out the front should be ok. I'm also going to Daystar bumps as suggested by my buddies.

Nope I wish. Bypasses aren't installed yet and I really need a skid plate for my oil pan and front differential. I used both as a skid plate this last weekend but luckily no damage.

You headed out there?
