    Finally decided to put together a build thread of my truck

    Started out with this about a year ago in October 2011..
    2000 Tacoma sr5, standard, v6, 4x4, 132000kms, safetied for $7500.

    Took me about a month of driving it to figure out I wanted tires and a lift for it, started getting the plans together and found these new tires on used rims for a steal and picked them up, Procomp Xterrain 33x12.5 on procomp 15x10" steel rims and a spare.

    A couple weeks after I picked up the tires, I was checking my fluids and my coolant was full of oil. Blown headgasket. Lift was put on hold, started ordering parts to do a rebuild. Parked the truck and drove my car from january until april when school was done for the summer so I had time to rip the engine apart.

    Got these parts, plus the rebuild gasket kit. Waterpump/timing belt replacement kit.

    While the truck was off the road I decided to do something about the chrome and grey faded plastic on the front and back and saved my rusty floor pan with some POR15

    Pulled off the running boards, and drove it out of the garage with the new painted front end.
