    Way too big. Way to impractical to drive. Especially with only getting 20 MPG in a place where gas is $8 a gal.

    This is my favorite truck on the site. It's got a good story behind it.

    By the way, wood bed was a great move, it's got a classic look. Love it.

    the only problem i see with the bed is i use it as a hunting vehicle mostly and i need to find a way to keep blood from soaking into the wood

    I love my 2011 TRD Sport DC Tacoma. It's got a crap ton of features that are comfortable, it's got power, and I get good MPG.

    But I didn't do anything to get it to do that.

    I'm more proud of the custom cabinets and desks I've built than my Tacoma, those are mine. I just bought this truck, you built yours.

    great build despite all the issues! love the wood bed, i'd just sand it and seal it with some wood sealer like Thompsons or whatever they have at your hardware store to keep blood/guts/water etc from seeping in. May need to redo it every year or two but it should bead up nicely and not ruin your bed.

    Diggin the story, the sentimentality, the results.......that's because I had a 27yr 500k mile love affair with a pretaco 22r myself. It ended up like this in 2009 before going Tacoma........

    [​IMG]

    BTW, would you be interested in a new 22R RV cam and new springs? This one doesn't fuck up the idle. Got more 22R parts too. Cam/springs were never installed. PM for more pics if interested.

    ^^^This!

    I love the Toyota Pickups especially for our area(southeast) they hold their value well and they hold up well. Yours had taken a hit but you have resurrected quite nicely!

    future plans: (in order)
    - complete 22re swap with 22re wiring harness (current 22r has way more power than before the rebuild but it smokes like a bitch and its having trouble starting)
    - bed bob
    - SAS with a toy axle (84 or a 85)
    - 4-5 inch lift
    - 35's :cool:
    - maybe dual t cases
    - new stereo and cb
    - new paint (olive drab, orange, dark gray)???
    - plate bumper and a xrc8 winch
    - sliders
    - rear tube bumper

    It's an 89 Toyota Pickup. I got some stuff done to it.. FJ axles going under it soon.
    come to cali, i'll sell you my 22re.
    one day i'm building a 22r.... .30 over, 234/262 cam, hd springs, lifters, etc..
    probably a 38 web or maybe even a 40 sidedraft if I can bump compression up some.

    it's gonna scream!! and only cost me like $1100 to do lol



    cool build though, good job on fixing her up!
