    Had a great time at Morris Mountain in Delta, AL.
    Then this happened to my brother:

    We had to leave it and come back today. It's in a bad spot. I'll get some better pics today. My camera was dead yesterday.

    Yeah it'll be lifted, regeared, and locked hopefully by the end of the summer. Now that I'm out of college for the summer work has picked up a ton, like daylight to dark everyday so I have a little spending monies for the first time in awhile :)

    I hear ya, classes just ended a couple weeks ago for me. So I'll have a brief period of time where I can put in a lot of work before summer classes. School really takes a lot of it out of you.

    Yeah I'm sure I'll see you somewhere around these parts.. You can call me Drew. It's nice to meet you there Sidewinder. Make yourself at home and start a build on that pickup you bought from Will.. Uh.. I mean.. When you buy a pickup, if you ever want one :)

    Been awhile since I updated. Still collecting parts to lift and lock.

    Got a weber carb and am currently installing it and desmogging. I'll post up pics when I get it all done.

    Also replaced both motor mounts and the brake booster.

    Chad (01Tacoma) is making me a set of sliders which I'm pretty stoked about.

    I've gotta get an IFS box and hysteer so I can put my lift on. I've got all my shocks and everything. Also got power steering pump etc.

    Maybe I should update this thing every once in awhile?

    Finished my desmog and 32/36 install a longgg time ago.

    Got my sliders from Chad (still haven't mounted them)

    Put my lift on, but no highsteer. Just a drop drag link. Highsteer, 5.29s, and 35's are coming up as soon as I can afford it.

    I'm running a RUF/OME hybrid with 5.5" shackle in the front. 89-95 OME springs with 6" shackle in the rear (soon to be replaced with Chevy 63's), and 12" Bilstein 5125s all around. Gonna go to 14"s for the front because the springs have more and the shocks are stopping it. Also gonna mount my rear shocks vertical through my bed.

    I built a square front D-shaft and bought 4xinnovations tube doors. Both are awesome.

    Here's a teaser. Got some in progress pics, but I'll have to get to those later:

    Plan to bob 8" soon and bedline the bed and floors and get some bucket seats.

    Looks good. You don't like the 51" rears?

    Well.. I scored a canoe for free! :yay:Gotta go get it Monday. May have to pick up some crossbars for this thing to haul it.

    I really need to do a picture dump in this thread. I got a good bit of pictures, but I lost a lot whenever I switched phones. iCloud didnt download them all :(


    Here's one with the 4xinnovations tube doors:

    I haven't checked with the weber and 32's, but I was getting 19-20 with stock carb and tires. I'm getting close to that now. The 32's keep my rpm's down
