    Well shit...I didn't want to know that for a reason (denial is a powerful thing) but it's less than I thought if I were to guess.

    I'm not good at keeping track of things, but lets just say it's a lot.
    I paid 10K for my '99 in 2006 with 73,000 miles on it. I wouldn't be surprised if I spent that much since then on maintenance and repairs.
    That's kind of what pushed me to just buy new this time around.

Replaced stock radio with a Pioneer AVH series head unit. Focal component system w/a 10" sub powered by 2 Alpine amps. Weathertech floor mats. Line-X'd the bed. SCS Ray 10’s, Installed an A.R.E.

    Off the top of my head, I've put about $7k into her and still need to install Deaver expedition springs, TC UCA's(Next on the list) re-gear, lockers front and rear, install a Supercharger w/7th injector kit, both front and rear(w tire carrier and jerry can) off road bumpers w/ winch and lights, sliders, armor and on board air and Tundra brake upgrade. I'm probably looking at about another $10k-$15k before she's at where I want her....not counting adding to my sound system.

    I started with this 2004 TRD 4x4 with a seized 3.4 that i bought in 2014 with 147k miles for $500. I got it running & on the road and ready for its 1st voyage, a 3300 mile camping trip for about $2500 total invested. I haven't added up the receipts since the Toytec lift, wheels/tires & tundra brakes but i don't consider it done yet. Love this truck!

    I honestly throw away receipts because I'm passed the point of wanting to know.

    I want a Casita so bad!!! I was going to pull the trigger but I already bought the camper shell so I'm going to try and rough it in the camper shell for a bit and Lord willing pay cash for the Casita.

    I bought mine new in 2014. I may be selling it because i bought a cabin & property in the mountains of WV. We absolutely love this camper but since i bought the cabin its just been sitting in my driveway under my carport.

    If I just had the lower ball joints replaced and didn’t purchase new bolt flanges, does that pose any issues?

    The ball joints that came off were still in good condition...122k miles.


    My bad for changing the subject on the thread! I’m about 4.6k into the truck so far. Purchased for 10k 122k miles.

    Replaced lower ball joints, added Deaver leaf pack, bilstein 5100s, total chaos UCAs, method grid wheels 16”, BF Goodrich KO2 285/75/16 x4, wet okole seat covers, weathertech mats, and ceramic tinted windows
