It's official, I became a Tacoma owner today! (pics)

Finally sold my Siverado, and picked up a 2001 Regular Cab, Shortbed, 5 speed, 4x4 with 62k, on 33's in MINT CONDITION, and a few minor issues For $2500. With that in mind, I wanted a fixer-upper, and I have a few bucks left over from the silvy sale to get it up to par.



It's gonna be fun.













Minor collision with a forklift

Superior weather protection

Even came with some free goodies

This is what I sold

At a TW meet. I was a Wanna-be.

It needs: New bed or bedsides, Radio, O2 sensors/fuel pump(impossible to drive), Wheels n Tires (none of them match, going down to 31 inch treadwrights), Front/back windshield, Im sure there is more. You know, just the usual. U mirin?

^ OHHHH LAWWDDDDDD at flatbed pics

That would be sick. I dont know if I have enough funds to get everything running mint, buy a welder, metal, AND do an SAS which would be necessary

I got it after the forklift incident, and its a bonded title, so idk bout that insurance deal

AND I need to save a few Hundred to buy a 12 gauge

SAS doesn't need to be done right away. Can always come in time.

Your truck looks a bit beat up man. I hope you got it for a hell of a deal, like under 7k.

Yeah. 3.4L? Guess I should have read the original again. Drinking and watching football makes me lose focus. I would start with a good suspension. You may have a lift, but what kind? Spacer, coils? What? I would start with that. Body can look like shit, but as long as the suspension/engine runs well you can't go wrong.

Haha I know how that goes, anything makes me lose focus. I think its got either the 2.7L or 2.4L and the 5 speed manual.
I have no idea on the lift, if any TBH, the tires rub like a somebish, but the cv angles aren't bad at all.
First priority is getting it drivable. Ill probably throw in 02 sensors Monday, and if that doesnt fix it, fuel pump. The scanner said fuel pump though.

There is no lift that I can see, at least no spacers on the coils or anything, and no blocks on the back. The leafs do have some negative arch, maybe an AAL? Iv only ever dealt with Dropbracket Torsion Bar Lifts
