    so basically ive totalled the truck cause it was rolled incase no one saw the previous thread i posted so ill post all my previous mods and stuff and keep you all updated on the resurrection of my zombie truck..

    so ill start from the begining, unfortunately i dont have many pics of it but it will have to do. anyways i got the truck back in 2008 and started my mod list from there..

    32x11.50 BFG A/Ts on black steel rims
    Bilstein 5100's in front at 2.5 then upgraded to 3"Eibach coils later
    Bilstein 5125's in rear with Toytec AAL's
    6k HID kit
    URD short throw shifter
    Deckplate mod
    custom catback exhaust with a flowmaster 40 installed, later chopped the pipes back to the muffler.
    and other various small things.. like chrome delete on the rear bumper, removing the carpet and bedlinering the floor, various audio upgrades, swapped out dash lights for LED everything

    Good luck with the resurrection, i'll be keeping tabs on it to see the progress. I rolled my S-10 Blazer when i was in high school, sucked at the time, but then I bought my first toyota so it all worked out! ;)

    honestly i believe most of the energy was absorbed on the front right wheel that snapped the spindle and damaged the uca ball joint, then the corner of the front bumper carried some of the pressure while it rolled up onto the cab... im really hoping the frame is ok and it looks ok it me so im crossing my fingers
