    Decided I should start a build thread for this since I'm going to be doing so much maintenance on it.
    1999 Limited (leather), E-locker, AWD transferase, and supercharged, 204K miles on it currently.


    Picked it up for 1,200, hoping to have it road worthy/ reliable for 5 years with a total of less than 3,500.

    Needs:
    Waterpump - $287 (timing belt kit)
    Battery tie down J hook
    Battery cable terminals
    Tires -TBD
    Knock sensors (supposedly)
    supercharger rebuild (TBD, 1st gen grey supercharger)
    find leak in AC system
    Replace rear heater lines with high pressure ribber lines
    Auxillary (standalone) trans cooler
    Replace all fluids

    Body work
    Possible rebuild of trans, not sure if it's needed but i think it's a good idea.

    Timing belt kit is almost done, monday or tuesday (depending on work schedule) I should be able to button it up and get the AC system charged, and drive it a little bit.

    Finished up the timing belt but I'm waiting on some parts to install the new condenser.
    Once this thing runs and drives I'm most likely going to sell it as much as I want to keep it, it looks like I should be able to trade my Tacoma for an f250 and maybe a little cash and my secondary vehicle would be a POS '96 4Runner (2wd) that I can get for free.

    She's back together and running, currently at the exhaust shop getting the exhaust fixed, I'm keeping the t4r though and selling the taco, supercharger is just too much fun.

    Gotta get a wideband and boost gauge for this, as well as a switch for the door locks.
    Sunroof was leaking, removed it and cleaned the drains, motor works however the cables are frozen up due to the crapy grease that Toyota used.
