Wiring will be the final step. I am pretty sure I got it figured out.

Picked up the bed this afternoon. Did a little fitting and trimming and got it welded on. I have to say my little Hobart machine is a workhorse.







Everything went on easily since we cut the mounts off flush with the frame.

Now that the hard part is done, the little tedious chores begin.

I got an older Handler 187. It was replaced by the 190. It was brand new and too good of a deal to pass up. If you can get a 220 machine do it.

LEDs all wired up ready for final install. Didn't use any type of converter. Just spliced into the factory harness.

Finished up the rear lights and threw the tray on to see how I want to lay out the bed. I think eventually I want to elevate the spare above the bed with clearance to my totes and ice chest.

Got tired of staring a my Corbeau Baja SS seats in my garage and decided to get them put in the truck. I used the Chassis Unlimited billet sliders on the driver side for some adjustability. May pick up another set for the passenger side in the future.

As would I. Soon though. I have a few more things to finish. Mount a few lights, passenger seat, tool box, touch up some spots on the bed, rear license plate/light and finish attaching bed. I plan on getting most of that finished this week and drive it to work for the next couple weeks.

Bed, bed lights, license plate and tool box are mounted. I also added 6 tie downs to the edges of the bed. Just need to clean up some wiring and get my harness bar installed and the red truck should be ready to go.





License plate is low but removable. I may change it up later but it makes me street legal now.

Boomtacoma's other build.... Little Red 85

Drove it to work today. Probably drive it all next week as well.

Truck seems to have some pep in the highway now. Apparently the stock bed was a little heavier than the tube bed.

That bed looks great. I'm assuming it's locally made?

Yep, a couple guys here locally (Shrockworks) made it for an 91 reg cab and by chance it fit on my 85.

Got my harnesses affixed to the roll cage, rear 6x9's reinstalled and passenger seat intalled.



Waiting on my clevis mounts to show up and need to mount my antenna for my CB. Then pack up the red truck for Jambo.

Burned my clevis mounts on last night and realized bed space is at a premium now. I need to organize it a tad better.

Finally some wheeling pics

Finally got some wheeling in this past weekend. The 9th Annual Lonestar Toyota Jamboree. I initially wanted to trailer my rig up there but ended up making the 4hr trip each way to Barnwell Mountain on the highway loaded down. In my mind the truck did pretty well. On the Highway right at 17mpg. On the trail it I also was very happy with it. I had an engine problem which I thought was a faulty TPS sensor and ended up being a bad connection on the ingitor/coil assembly. I got that fixed and wheeled for the rest of the weekend.

My caravan













got to do a little FJ recovery for the second year in a row.











A little driveshaft carnage



I followed these guys around the first day and had a blast. Put my truck in some tougher situations than I normally would have.

Brandon in his F-Toy



Vince in his FJ40 buggy





Great weekend overall!!
