OK i have some time here. Pics!!!

The header

The cross over now rather then under.

The tail section also useing the FJC stock rear muffler...Cat not pictured.

My old stereo set up.. you can laugh but it sounded great!


Upgraded to touch screen dvd pioneer(3500) so I could use the steering wheel controls of the FJC wheel.

Have to throw in a few other pics cause i haven't been on in so long.

This is Recaro, Hes as close to a child as we are having for a while...Well and my girls cat.LOL Hes dieted down to a horrible looking 100lbs cause the vet said that she was scared of his heart failing at 150lbs. Anyways he went with me to drop off some stereo equipment I got for my camper. Cant wait to start on the rebuild and update of that thing..




Some interior panel wrapping pics



Now the idea here is the door panels had to be custom due to the tacoma switches and the dash. Manual window cranks hit the dash even with wing windows. They are useless too...Tried em first. So i made panels to mock up. I wrapped em and as you can see im no pro. Im going to hand over the real install and wrapping to a buddy of mine who in CO his truck was well known. Hes taught classes on interior and hot rod for major schools.. His company is Douglas Designs and hes just getting going again on his own. I will post up contact as this goes on.

Picked up a set of high rise fiberglass fenders...Im not going to run them but i wanted to test fit and see how they look.


Here is a hint of whats about to happen tho.....Im collecting mint OEM panels so it can line up perfect once its back together.



Still looking for a passenger fender. Yota yard has a driver. Id buy both if they are mint, OEM and local.

Got some TRD tacoma white face gauges. Im a little puzzled by the AT cut outs tho...They came from a manual.



Grabbed me an Ultra gauge. tucked the wire and stuck it in the corner of the windshield now. I like it...Cant say i need it but its kinda cool.


And the last pic... Cant lose on 42's...Well maybe not yet but im going to be getting a set. After the rebuild of the truck thats about to happen im going to retire it from hard wheeling. maybe some easy stuff here and there but nothing crazy. Im already looking for either a ZUK to throw somw FJ80 axles under or maybe 60's links and 42's OR another longbed toy like mine i can do the same. Im going to cut fenders bob bed, Armor and cage it paint it nice but not show truck nice and wheel it stress free...My truck isnt. Im scared to death of trashing it more or rolling it again.




And the most recent pic. I took it after i washed all the cars today.. Im going to be starting my rebuild with in thenext 2 weeks....this is not the official kick off but its coming so be ready.

Also to go on,
Full hydro assist, TC pump cooler and all that jazz
Orbeteye bushings in the rear
Poly body mounts and maybe a 1" body lift to keep from cutting the fenders...or bumpstops not sure.



MORE TO COME

I could have sworn I put a pic of the new deck up... Here goes


So a local shop- redline land cruisers is having an open house for the new building so Im going to make the truck presentable and take it down... Let the cleaning begin

Its been two years of rock rash, sun fade, cleaners on the last paint... Had to touch it up.

Back on. I still need to aim the fog lights again.

Even the winch came kinda clean.


I'm goin super OCD on and then pulling it apart after the open house for paint and more.


Co guys here is the flyer if you wanna meet up at the open house

That is one sweet rig! Very well built and seems to be extremely capable.

Thanks! I have to say it could be better and will end up seeing more changes but for now its more capable then I am. I'm only limited by the amount of body damage I'm willing to accept..... That's why there will be another thread this year with a replacement rig. My truck will be retired and used for easy trails and camping if I feel like it but mainly her use will be once a month trip to the gym or up to shoot or something. It has too much sentimental value to get abused like it has been. Its been a hard thing to decide but I will either have a buggy or another longbed pickup that's on tons with 42s cut to fit 5" springs and cage work

Looks great man. I was finally presented the opportunity to pick up an older Toyota, much sooner than I thought too. Still have tons to learn, but I keep your build in mind when looking over different options. Well, I'm probably not gonna run 42's lol, but you get the idea.
