My first vehicle, a build starting small.
 
So far, I've done VERY little to my truck, but once i get the money, I plan on going WILD with mods and such.


First off, here is how I got it.

96 2wd Taco, 2.4L 4 Cylinder. Some old man had it and used it to drive his grandkids around.

180,000 miles.

Cost: $5000

It had a pretty decent radio in it.

First thing I did was take off the mudflaps. (Makes it look taller)

Then, I got the O2 sensors replaced.
Here it is on the lift in my uncle's shop.

Then, today, I added a toolbox that I got for free. It's not bolted in just yet, but It's secured with some straps.

Soon, I plan on fixing the window latch on the rear window, getting a new sound system, getting a 3 inch lift with new wheels and tires, new floor mats, getting a new bumper, removing those terrible vinyls on next to the windows... and many other things.

Reserved... I guess :D Hopefully I'll need to use this space one day!

Rock and roll man. That's a lot prettier than my first Toyota truck. Welcome to TW.

I appreciate it! I'm really happy! Not many people get something as nice and reliable as I did. I'm pretty thankful, considering I didn't have to pay for it.

Even better! Look forward to see what all you do to it.

Probably not. It's only 2wd and I have to make sure I keep it running, since it's all I've got. :D

Even if I don't want to offroad, I might do that. The Diff in mine sucks monkey tits.
