got my first taco six weeks ago, and I am going to use this thread as a documentary of my truck's progress/upgrades/mods/maintenance.
at the dealership:
removed badges and painted front emblem:
3 days later, I found a broken leaf spring:
after receiving a set of tsb leafs from a member on here, I installed them.
When I bought the truck, it had a pretty dented tailgate, so I found a new one and put that on. It actually had an oem backup camera in the handle, which I had no use for, so I sold it on ebay (which helped pay for the tailgate ):
I had been driving my 350k miles SAS '88 4runner for the past 5 years or so (the build thread is in my signature), and finally had the funds to upgrade to a better daily driver.
