Hey guys, I'm new here and have been a fan for a bit. I inherited a '99 prerunner sr5 (2.7l 4 banger) and it runs really well for having 170k miles on it. It was well maintained but has been banged up a bit over the years. I'm saving up some money and want to do a restoration/upgrade to it. Essentially I would like a new truck out of it. I'll have about 5-6 grand to throw at it. Here is my dilemma. I can't find a good trustworthy place in south Florida that doesn't cost an arm and a leg cuz the do ferraris. I'm willing to come up north a bit (port st lucie or so) but not too much.
I essentially want to restore it to new and lift it a bit...that's all. Maybe some upgrades under the hood but I'd like someone with some know how that could make the suggestion. Any help would be much appreciated.
