    As I have said in a previous post (http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/1st-gen-tacomas/291935-check-out-beauty.html), my g/f's uncle owns a wrecker service and brings in a lot of cool stuff. Well, his son bought this yesterday for $1800. The transmission was bad, but he bought a used one for $150 and is putting it in now. I'm assuming the dude he bought it from is a member on YotaTech, b/c he's got a sticker on the window. The wrecker service usually brings in 3-4 tacoma's and 4 runners in a year and usually ends up fixing them up selling them, but he's decided to keep this one. The only downside is that it's a 2WD:( What do ya think?

    the man and his new prize:

    I know. I'm pretty jealous. He lives next door to us, too, so at least I get to stare at it everyday

    That's how I am in my PreRunner. I can go 99% of the spots as my friends do in their 4wd's. If it rains, it may be a different story, but after I get my locker and winch, I'll be leading the pack lol

    Bilsteins front and rear, front set to 1'' and rear are 9'' 5125's, OMD springs in the rear, CSJumper LED's inside, hard wired inverter.
    Sweet deal, all he's gotta do is get a 4x4 computer, tranny, front diff, hubs, and t-case and it should be 4x4.
