to the best of my knowledge, nobody here has a beamed tacoma.

you'll have to browse dezert rangers to find a truck like that

Giant Motorsports has done the conversion on at least 1 Tacoma.

Give Geoff a call and I'm sure he'll steer you in the right direction.

Oh, man thats crazy lookin! you could get insane droop out of that! are there not springs, shocks? im kinda confused on how that part would work

EDIT: I saw two bars welded in place where it looks like some type of coilover would go?

Those bars look like they're temporary to determine ride height and move the truck around. In the end it'll have long coil-overs supporting the front.

A full-race vehicle from the 2008 1000 race for reference:

yeah giant doesnt have a kit for 1st gen tacos just the like late 80's to mid 90's pickups and 2nd gen tacomas. all they could tell me is "well if your frame is the same as the early 90's pickups you can use our kit for the early 90's trucks"
