    decided to sell my 240sx drift car and buy a tacoma. a bit more practical and ill be able to use it a bit more than my "track car"
    [​IMG]

    so here it is, picked it up for $3600. 2.7L, 165k on the clock, 4x4, 5spd, with a broken leaf spring.
    [​IMG]
    sadly this is only picture i took of it stock when i first got it 2 weeks ago.

    first step was fixing that broken spring. i decided the best thing to do was refit my whole suspension. called wheelers and got myself their 5 leaf packs with the AAL, front diff drop, new u bolts, front billie 5100s set at 2.5 and got from 3 inch lift skyjacker shocks for free from a buddy. they ride a bit rough but i ran out of money at this point and needed rear shocks.

    after that install, i had another friend who had a camper cap sitting in his backyard off his old 94 yota, copped that for free too. no updated pictures yet but i will add some when its not dark out.
    right now i am waiting for hids, hella 500ffs, and new headlights to arrive in the mail, after that the plan is 33s with a small wheel spacer and ill call it a day.

    ive been creeping around the forum gathering info and im glad i found this place.

    nice! I was about to buy my friends 240sx back in 08, but he sold it to some guy... his 240 was in perfect condition. Wish I had bought it in time!

    That's a clean S13. Sileighty front is sweet. I used to be a 240 guy as well, had a 95 zenki with a 50 trim on a built KA. Love those cars, can't beat swinging out a RWD with power like that!
