Exactly.

I've got a couple years to get everything in order though.

This is my favorite truck on the site. It's got a good story behind it.

By the way, wood bed was a great move, it's got a classic look. Love it.

I love my 2011 TRD Sport DC Tacoma. It's got a crap ton of features that are comfortable, it's got power, and I get good MPG.

But I didn't do anything to get it to do that.

I'm more proud of the custom cabinets and desks I've built than my Tacoma, those are mine. I just bought this truck, you built yours.

Diggin the story, the sentimentality, the results.......that's because I had a 27yr 500k mile love affair with a pretaco 22r myself. It ended up like this in 2009 before going Tacoma........



BTW, would you be interested in a new 22R RV cam and new springs? This one doesn't fuck up the idle. Got more 22R parts too. Cam/springs were never installed. PM for more pics if interested.

^^^This!

I love the Toyota Pickups especially for our area(southeast) they hold their value well and they hold up well. Yours had taken a hit but you have resurrected quite nicely!

- 4-5 inch lift
- 35's
