    Have a look at my build --->
    I'm excited to see where this goes, I love the mini-trucks. Looks like a really straight body, how all those Toyota owners do it I'll never know. :rolleyes:

    Like I said before I like the truck, I wish I could buy my uncle's 85 xtra cab but I think I have enough projects for now.

    You again.... haha :D

    Straight body? Not quite lol but it's better than most. Bed is pretty beat up and has some rust, tail gate is fucked but works, and passenger fender has some damage. Going to swing by my dad's sometime and grab his body hammers and dolly's and see what I can do.

    I hear ya on that. This is my first real project so I'm pretty excited.

    Not gonna happen in the near future. The 4Runner project is dead. The FJ80 front axle I have may or may not find its way under the Tacoma.
