    Thx guys. I'm pretty much done with it except for tinting the driver and passenger windows. Atleast till I find a daily driver and sas this thing or just leave it a runner and add a sc. Oh. I still need some springs for the rear. Prob alcans.

    I doubt it. I mean you are kinda force feeding your airbox some. I'm going to reset my ecu and keep some records and see how it goes.
    Then there's that whole "drag" effect in the wind so if it does get a bit more mpg, it's probably offset by the fact that it's not very aerodynamic.

    No. However I think maybe some "turbo" stickers would look really cool on it.

    $2800.
    I could have talked her down some. Gas gauge and speedometer dont work, but I can barely find a spot of rust on the truck anywhere.
    Drove it to work (35miles rnd trip) a few times and it seems to run pretty good. The 3.0 has plenty of power. As a matter of fact I think its the same hp as the taco. 150hp. But it pulls harder being a 5 speed.

    Looks like my sas on the taco is put off for the time being and back to dd duties. I can get an ifs eliminator kit and sas this for 1/3 the price I can for the taco.

    only real plans are to get those lavender stripes painted, I'm getting to much shit at work for them. lol.

    What size of KC lights are you running? I've got an AP bumper coming in and I'm looking for lights. Wanted to go IPF 968's, but they're listed as 7" lights and 6" in the max per AP's site.

    Yeah, that's what I figured. Got a set priced out, just waiting for the bumper and OME lift kit to arrive. Great job on the truck - do you have any inside pics of the rocker switch for your lights and the CB install? I'm kind of using your build as a template, so to speak.

    I'll try and get some later today. Nothing special. I put the switch in an empty access slot next to the 2 air conditioning vents on the center bezel. Worked out great. CB in the ashtray slot.
