    How do you swap the front end? I have an 02 now but the front end of my 95 is still good.

    I would like to find that write up, if I can handle the mods myself I'll definitely consider it.

    You already have the best 1st gen font end though lol. The 95.5 - 97 one looks more like the classic Pickup front end, the 98 - 2000 ones are the blander front ends that benefit from the 01 - 04 swap I think

    I totaled my 95 :facepalm:so I'm gonna put that front end on my 02 I just bought when I get her up and running. You are right though I like the earliest 1st gen front ends most.

    Yeah I was the only one needing attention, got some staples in my head. I got tboned by a high school girl speeding through town without her headlights on while it was snowing and almost dark. I take partial blame just for the fact i should have looked twice, but still not happy one little bit about it. I had the cleanest most badass little truck in this town.

    Damn man, remind me of my near miss with some teenage girl from my high school. She was speeding going 50 through town and slid on a bridge. I dove into a ditch packed with snow to avoid her. Good to hear that you came out well.

    The Landcruiser Toyota logo makes the 98 - 2000 grill look 10000 times better, looks great IMO. Nice clean and clear headlights really helps too lol

    Also seen those billet grills for the 01-04. How in the hell do you get in there to push the lever to pop the hood open
