    Great site with tons of useful information.

    Love it!

    Thanks.

    Frame looks great underneath.

    I'm ordering a new grill and lower front valance today. Other than that and a small dent in the tailgate it looks and drives great.

    The power of the 3.4 surprised me with how well it pulls the truck. Plenty of power.

    Last Toyota I owned was a 1987 4x4 pickup. Glad to be driving another Toyota.

    Not really sure yet. Kinda like it the way it is. New BFG's came with it. May just drive it awhile to get a feel for it and go from there.

    Seeing a lot of awesome builds on this site so I'm getting a lot of ideas already.

    Thanks
