    Not my first Toyota, but has been close to 10 years since my last ('86 4wd).
    Picked up a '98 ext cab, v6, auto, 4wd this past weekend to make a daily driver/hunting truck out of. Looked for about 3 months to get a good deal on one, found a 2000 model in Houston, ended up being a bent frame pile. So, by some weird chance found one in Clear Lake and got a screaming deal on it. Basically a virgin truck with only mods being aftermarket wheels and tires. So the build begins (gonna post that in the build section).
    Got a bud that works with me (yotarob) that has helped me get going in the right direction and put me on to this forum.
    Got a few other rides and been on quite a few other forums, looks like there are a bunch of good guys here and I'm sure I'll have a few questions along the way. Here are some pics of it when I picked it up.
    Thanks
    Todd

    Thanks, ONLY damage is on the rocker on the dr side. He said a log came up and slapped the bottom. It was partially fixed but I have to do a little finishing up on that. Really a clean truck for the milage.
