    well i am new to this forum, i had an 84 extra cab 4x4 back in the day, best truck i ever had. so i wanted to get back to having the best truck. i have been looking for some time now, and found the truck for me. i wanted to find one that had most of what i wanted on it to begin with. i found it and pick it up this tue in texas. super excited. i have attached some pics to show.

    so i will be removing the baja spare tire mount and putting back the ome tailgate. the po saved and bubble wrapped all the ome parts that he replaced and the come with the truck. very nice. i need a shell for it now and want one with rack mounts for the top. for snowboards, bikes, and my yack box. anyone have a used one for sale or have any suggestions as what to be looking for? excited to be back in the toy family. any suggestions would be great thx.

    also i will be selling the baja tire mount if anyone is interested.... hopefully to help pay for the shell. thx jason

    Welcome!

    Thats a nice little rig there...especially with the ARB and (I think I see it at least..) OME suspension. A cap would look nice on that. You should also throw some .5-1" wheel spacers on there to give the truck a little wider stance.

    I have a ARE topper. The one I have is the z series but it is 4 years old still looking good. I like the z series on my truck but I recommend getting sliding side windows. Mine side windows just crank out and dont open very far. Click on my camera to see my truck.

    Welcome to TW if you dont mind the about 5 hour drive here is one for the price it is a good deal even after paying for the gas, http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/buy...ell-100-a.html might givem a call. How does your truck do with the added wheight from that bumper?

    not sure yet, i pick it up on tue. so we will see..... i think he said he was still avg around 20-22 but i could be wrong. my 2000 subaru legacy gt wagon that im replacing with this truck avg around 18mpg so if i could stay around there or a little better i would be happy.
