My first vehicle was an 01 Tacoma Prerunner. It has been a great little truck that has served it's purpose, and then some. It started life out as a bone stock truck and has since turned into a 4x4/SAS/DD/Camping rig that has never let me down.
I have been wanting to get a beater that I could drive around town and keep miles off the Tacoma, while still being able to wheel a little harder and still have something to drive. So after about two days of looking, I stumbled onto this jewel.
It's a 1991 Pickup with a 22re/5 speed. She's got P/S, A/C and an almost perfect interior. The motor has 217,xxx on the OD, but the top end was re-built 25k ago. I'm wanting to eventually turn it into a mini-version of my Tacoma. I think I am going to get it bedlinered the same color as the Tacoma with some minor armor (bumpers/sliders/skid).
Suspension wise I want to keep her as low as possible. I would like to keep it on 33's, maybe 35's later down the road.
The total build is as planned:
Trail-Gear SAS kit with 3in springs
Chevy 63's with Bilstein's
85 Toyota Pickup housing
4.88's in the axles (GrizzLock rear/Spartan front lockers with tripple-drilled flanges)
Dirty 30 shafts
Trunion Bearing Eliminators
4.7's in the case with triple-drilled flanges
Will be last on the list... I would like to eventually do 33x12.50 Goodyear Duratracs. I had them on the Tacoma for a while and they were great!
Hybrid front bumper
High clearance rear bumper
HID conversion for the head lights
LED conversion for the rest of the truck
LED rock lights
(possibly Rigids in the front bumper )
Speed-liner - Same silver color code as the Tacoma
Still trying to decide on what emblems to put on while the liner is still soft?
