    it should run and drive within 2 years. but all depends on finding parts. i have no plans on a full resto just yet. but it'll get one eventually. its solid for a car that spent its beginnings in new york.


    Taco frame should be complete by the end of july. body work will be done at the shop.. it might be a whole truck by winter. but thats the early goal... plan is to drive it by next spring. so its looking like decade? no. 6 years? yes (dont buy a rollover tundra, it slows you down by 2 years)

    You have the coolest single cab Tundra I’ve ever seen. That one kid that’s sort of local to me has a solid axle one. But something about an 8 foot bed with a shell.

    Still can't get over the GVWR, power, and weight vs a 3rd gen Taco.

    tundra is superior to the taco in every way, sans gas mileage

    Give it time. It'll end up negative at some point. There's no positives in that stance

    Oh yeah, you'll be fine with a 120v unit. I have a Lincoln HD140 and I run .025 solid core. Comes out great for frame work, I start doing double pass above 1/4".
