    Toytec Boss 2.0 coilovers set at 1.5" 650 coil spring rate
    Rear Fox 2.0 Performance shocks
    Stock Leafs (Going to replace just havent found what i want"
    Built Right Upper A arms with Uniballs

    Interior:
    Kenwood Aftermarket Radio
    Uniden Pro505xl CB
    2001 Tacoma bucket seats
    Tan wet okle seat covers

    Exterior:
    Auxbeam 4" Led pods

    Got some 285s on the taco the other week matched with some 16inch methods. Cutting for the 285s was needed lol.

    I was walking through the neighborhood the other night and saw another Nissan pickup with one - it looks like a stock “hardbody” from the early 90’s or so.

    My truck had that same rear bumper when I got it from the PO. Don't think it's an OEM Nissan pickup bumper, but idk. I do know that it's an aftermarket replacement that you can get for most trucks though.

    Interesting. The design is identical to a number of mint Nissan pickups on auction sites with all original trucks, so maybe that truck's design was copied and made to fit other trucks in the aftermarket.

    Honestly the rebuild on the motor was iffy I had not own the truck then but so far it’s been 50k more miles compression all good. For 285s with a 4 banger surprisingly they ain’t that bad. Of course I’m slower off the line but overall I move fine I actually go pretty fast with them my Speedo is about 4-5 mph off I was wondering why when I was going 75mph on my gauge I was passing people lol
