Well some people should get their hands slapped if they touch a welder or bender....


So with that said its time to rehab my new to me Tacoma...the first owner did a pisspoor job and some of the welds are horrid...I've picked better boogers than some of these...lol
I won't go into all the stuff just stuff I'm doing as I do it....and moving forward.

Deals I've gotten so far.
$390 39.5 Iroks (4 75% no plugs or patches no damage)
$240 Warn 9.5 CTI winch no pulls
$50 canopy (all there BUT DIRTY)

How it sits now

How it started its life with me...

Didn't realize how exposed these are underneath and where we wheel the pans would get destroyed....so making underbelly skids and from rai. to rail to slide off the rocks with.
Made the tranny pan cover today, started the cross bars behind transfer case and will add another the. Bend up some plate to make the whole mid section 1 big flat skid and keep the weight down on it as well...

I've seen square 1/4 wall before and its tougher than sh!t on the rocks...its a pretty common thing be seen for budget or bullet proof cheap shafts in northern Idaho and some other places I've been. It will be getting swapped shortly.
Doesn't balance and doesn't like speed but with manual hubs and rock crawling its bullet proof so its not high n the priority list right now.

I had never seen that before haha, guess it works for crawling though.

Used to wheel with an 85 runner with that style drive shaft. It wasn only like 1/16" wall and he couldn't figure out why it kept breaking...
