    20170211_123821.jpg 20170211_115222.jpg I've been looking for several months and have finally got one. It's a 2 owner southern truck. 2001 Silver DC 4x4 with 115000 miles. No frame rust at all and runs great! I plan on overtime replacing the spacer lift and wheels, adding bumpers and sliders. Repairing some body work and maybe even paint eventially.

    Good looking truck. I've got the same color / setup. Get up to date on your maintenance and go drive it forever. Also, don't be surprised when people come up to you in parking lots. I get offers on mine in the North East every few weeks!

    I'm just here for the group buys.
    Nice.

    I always tell myself that if I ever want another Toyota truck it's going to be a 1st gen DC or a Land/FJ Cruiser.

    Now that you got it. Power wash the underside, especially inside the frame. Paint all the frame welds with rust converter. Paint all the inside of the frame with phosphate internal frame coating. Paint the entire frame with rust bullet, after all dry, fluid film the daylights out of it.. Reapeat the fluid film coating every sept.

    Just a suggestion.
