    it had rancho 5000 suspension with a 3" body lift :eek:

    I rocked the body lift for a couple of months until i bought some 5100's from my friend then off came the body lift!

    [​IMG]

    Got the billys installed

    [​IMG]

    I color matched my grill, bumper and stock wheels

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I realized that it had way to much bro lean so i finally installed my AAL that came with it but when i got under it i noticed that each side had broken leafs

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Got the AAL in

    [​IMG]

    Much better!

    [​IMG]

    I got a great deal on the method wheels from Sabre on here, and stepped into some 285/75/16's :)

    [​IMG]

    Good shot of the cut bumper and new meat

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I Installed wheel spacers on the front to get a wider stance and even out the front and rear

    Looking really good! I really love the look of the older 1st gens, kind of reminds me of my old 4runner that I miss owning. Keep the mods coming!

    I was creeping around on Tacoma World and came across this bad boy. Nice build, and I love the way the truck sits with the method wheels and 285's.

    Noice! keep us posted and let us know how they do in the sand. I'm still waiting to get back to the states to buy a 2nd gen 4x4. I already had my mind made up on method wheels and, after seeing your duratracs, my mind is made up on those as well!
