    I recentley got a 1990 reg. cab 4x4 22RE with 5speed by behind it.
    The bad news is the body is rough, very rough like the cab is the only good piece of the body left, and motor needs to be rebuilt. The good news is the frame is execellant ZERO rust.
    So my question is, is it worth it rebuild is truck? As in get doors, fenders, bed, and rebuild the motor? My plans would be to have it as daily driver/woods buggy with mild tires like 31s.
    Ok Tacoma World see if you help me decide!

    Lots...see build
    Do it! They're great trucks.
    You can check out yotatech forums for build info and parts for the older trucks, but any questions you ask might not get answered very quickly because there's not as much traffic as on TW.
