Rustyshakelford's 1996 Tacoma Build

Hey everyone! I wanted to take a few mins and add some pics of my Tacoma. I bought it about a month ago to use and thrash at the deer lease but have since decided I love the little truck and want to take care of it. I have been busy working on it and getting it the way I like it but I still have some more things in the works.

I started with a stock truck with 208,000 miles! Maintenace was done religiously by previous owner.

-First thing I did was change all the plugs and fluids

-Then I found a front bumper on craigs list and had it modified to fit and use with a winch

-Next came the winch (smittybilt xrc8000 comp w/ syn line and shackle)

-I painted the grill, rims, and rear bumper (door handles next)

-Painted exhaust pipe mod

-Diff breather relocater mod

-Removed all badges

-Installed option #4 of group buy at work! (5100's, new coils, AAL, Diff drop)

-Tires are 31x10.50x15's and the white walls will be switched soon!

Future Mods--I talked to my guy that does all the fab work yesterday so it should be done with in a month or two

Custom sliders
Roof rack for 4 6" off road lights, spare tire, hi-lift and spare CV axles
ARB snorkel
Possibly an elocker or arb

So far I love the truck and average about 20 mpg's hand calcuated. This has become my daily driver and now leave the dodge sitting in the drive way!





heres a pic of the dodge too

Leveling kit
5100's
Tough Country Bumper
3 Gauge Pillar mount
N-fab steps
Line-x
285 bfgs
5" staight pipe
air bags

this pic is a few years old but it looks about the same. i was hooked to 13 tons of hard wood. Total weight across the scales was over 42,000 lbs. only went about 30 miles but set the cruise at 70! Egts were right around 700 too!

thanks for all the compliments. i didnt want the dodge to be left out tho!

i have definately been bit by the bug and love doing things to the truck! its fun to drive but wish it had some more creature comforts like cruise control and keyless entry, but overall thats just more to go wrong with it!

when i get home ill try and take some better pics of the bumper and other little stuff

ok. have been working on the new roof rack. i have about 10 hrs invested in it so far. its 1" tubing that is 36"x42" it will house 4 8" lights and a tool box with space axles shafts, tie rod end and other parts. on the rear will be two large back up lights.

the sliders will be started in the near future. trying to decide what size of tubing to use.

does anyone have some info on mounting the roof rack?
