allenfab's 95 Tacoma build

After 2 years of being out of the wheeling game, I am finally back in it. I was looking for a truck for quite some time, but I couldn't bring myself to pay the $5k+ asking price of the beat to shit 4 cylinder Toyota pickups locally. I ended up buying a 1995 Tacoma 3.4, 5 speed, 4x4 Regular Cab off of a buddy who had sank and hydro-locked the motor for $1k. After a salvage yard motor swap, new clutch/flywheel/misc. other parts to get this thing running and road worthy, I had about $3400 into it total. Now the fun stuff starts...

1995 Tacoma Regular Cab 240k miles on truck
1998 motor with 138k miles, timing belt changed at 109k
R150F 5 speed transmission with new clutch, flywheel, misc. seals
manual shift chain drive transfer case

Plans are:
Dana 44 front
05+ Taco rear (free)
front suspension either leafs or 3-link with coils... still up in the air
rear suspension stock 05+ leafs with add-a-lead (free)
Toyota steering box with hydro assist eventually
probably 4.88 gears, detroits front and rear
35-37" tire
Tube bed with bobbed/cut bedsides
Front bumper w/winch
Sliders (90% done)
possible interior cage... one day

Main use is for trails, camping adventures, hunting rig, and of course the wonderful Florida mud

Started cutting the bedsides and bobbing it..... this is my first ever attempt at this or body work for that matter, so it could very well come out looking like shit

I wanna do that exact tube setup in the rear, but cut holes in the bedfloor for the tube to pass through instead of cutting out the bedsides like you did.

Looks really nice!

That's how I did in my old Tundra so I could still use the bed to haul my 4 wheeler and other stuff. It was pretty slick looking

My buddy Walker came over and hacked up the bedsides and got them to fit pretty good. I added a little bit of tube work to the cage as well. It is coming together pretty good.
