    Well, I've been watching my Dad's build (http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-builds/76790-gushers-build.html) since 2008 and have been waiting to find MY TRUCK! I will be driving soon and have been saving for a 1st Generation Tacoma project to work on and make mine. After looking at a lot of trucks we brought this home over the weekend!

    [​IMG]

    It's a 2001 Tacoma regular cab 2.7/5-speed/4x4 with a Rough Country 3" lift and 33's. It's got 160,000 miles on it and has the following new parts:

    New frame from Toyota including new brake and fuel lines
    New transmission
    New alternator
    New power steering pump
    New upper and lower control arm bushings
    New upper and lower ball joints
    New front and rear brakes
    New axle bearings
    New back bumper
    New oil pan
    New spark plugs
    New windshield

    It needs some cleaning up but I have a nice solid truck to start with. I'm excited to join the Tacoma family!

    Here's a few more pics...

    New frame -- Thanks Toyota!

    Here's how she sits today...

    [​IMG]

    My Dad "donated" his old TRD Sport wheels to me and we sprayed them up with semi-gloss Rustoleum and mounted his "old" Duratracs. After a lot of cleaning and buffing, the Taco looks pretty good.

    We bough the interior out of a wrecked Tacoma and have installed most of that...didn't have much aside from a pair of seats and a shifter when we started! I got Weathertechs for Christmas to they're also in there!

    We added a bed liner, new exhaust, and replaced the parking brake bell cranks.

    I just got my license so I'm going to start to put some miles on her now. I'll try to do a better job on keeping updated on the build.
