    Hello everyone! My son, T4C0CH40S, showed me this forum and said I should register and show off my 1992 Toyota 3.0 V6 Pick-Up. Not a Tacoma but worth mentioning since it only has (as of today 4/23/11) 36K miles on it.
    Anyway, my son helped me with loading some picture since he mentioned they are of great importance to TacomaWorld members! Enjoy!

    Very nice! Seeing yours made me reminisce about my own, which was still going strong (with over 200K miles on it) when I traded for my 04 Tacoma...

    Wow! I didnt expect all the messages, but thank all of you for the comments! Sorry I'm new to all this forum stuff so I'm a little slow for now.

    But yea you gotta love AZ for never really having to worry about rust!

    Now that Ive been looking through some of these other pages, hopefully I can find somebody that has some better knowledge than I do about lifts and suspension for my kind of truck. The rear end sags alittle bit, maybe since "everything" on the truck is stock except for the tires and wheels. I may need to buy some new shocks or a leaf pack or both?..

    My son took more pictures of my truck that are in my profile images. I know theres some pictures of the bottom and suspension if it helps.

    Thanks again guys!

    Wow! That is cherry. Wanna sell it?
    I had one very similar to that but regular cab. For the suspension I had an add a leaf in the rear, but put heavier torsion bars on the front. Gave about 2" of lift, but really stiffened her up just right. I even had a snow plow on it. (Which of course you would never need....LOL)

    This truck is as old as me, Im jealous. The sad part is even if I bought a new Toyota and tried took great care of it like you did, it would never touch how awesome yours is.
