    Brians Chaper 7 prerunner 4x4 Build:spending:

    Hola TW, Welcome to my build page! Thanks for stopping in. I want to give just a short synopsis of how My addiction started lol. When i turned 16 i looked at a bunch of different vehicles. Almost picked a Chevy(Thank God I didn't)! My first vehicle was a 2004 sr5 extended cab 5MT. It was a great truck and started my love for these trucks. I drove it until i was a sophomore in college when i totaled it (RIP). It had no real modifications to list but was a great truck non the less. I had saved up quite a bit of money by that point and knew i wanted another Taco. Of course i couldn't afford a TRD with low miles and 4x4. Honestly didn't know that i would ever need 4x4.

    So I found the truck I wanted which was a 2012 Toyota DCSB prerunner 2.7. It had 43k on the clock and in excellent condition. Paid 21k for it. I paid 17k and mom paid the rest.

    A small fortune later and it has turned into my trail/adventure rig and my 2nd vehicle! Have fun seeing the journey of my truck! I think I can say built not bought!
