    Yes there are some dam fine ones in the DFW / Houston area. I just don't know if they build Toyota engines. I look around.

    Good evening gents, hope everyone is staying healthy out there! Have quite a few updates ive been working on lately.

    Haven't dug into the motor yet, it's still plugging along and and ive just been topping off the radiator. The amount of water that overflows into the resi is very little so it doesnt take much to top it off. The problem doesnt appear to be getting worse quickly, and now that im working from home ive bought myself some more time. The new plan is to buy a used motor with 50-75k on it and throw it in there while the old one gets built. Other than that, been doing a few things to the truck lately to burn some time.

    started out with a thin lip satoshi grille

    A8AD432A-26A0-470F-B0F3-7B20F272D9C4.jpg

    Then I decided it would look better green. So i painted it and also painted the headlight lower trim pieces that were plasti dipped from my front clip swap
    565C2029-EC4D-4E26-AFBF-77303C34D617.jpg

    Washed the truck and then took the center caps apart and dipped the big part black and the emblems grey.

    Next i decided i was unhappy with the mounting of the solar panel on the shell so i cut the brackets down on my wind fairing and stuck it back on the cab like i had it earlier. It's nice and quiet this time around with the fairing and i could probably still use the racks on the cab in a pinch if necessary

    48F10F3D-AFF9-4030-9896-3F89AB95384C.jpg

    Also painted the shackles on the front bumper black that were originally silver and repainted the plastic hood scoop & tailgate handle that were starting to fade
    497C7836-4862-4F95-925A-3C96BE75C417.jpg

    Upgrade my faded and cracking mirrors to the 12-15 sport version. The truck isnt wired for them so they arent functional but they sure do look purty. Plan is to color match them whenever the paint comes in
    75E994E5-D9B4-44DA-98AA-347899B11C8F.jpg

    My original passenger tail light was leaking so i bought some new base model style tail lights to replace them off rockauto
    96A1ED2A-4378-4D30-BC4E-47EF332C6A67.jpg

    And last but not least, started giving my headlights a nice buff/clean up with the dremel and some meguiars plastx. Got the passenger one done. Not bad for a 7 year old headlight
