    So i bought my tundra but after a semi flipped in front of me causing a 90 car pile up....well needless to say that truck was totalled i wanted another truck but couldnt afford that one so i bought my current ride.

    day1)
    its a 2002 tacoma trd with 75k and bone stock.

    day 50ish)
    i had some drunk hit my front end and so i decided to get the toy tech grille and add some piaa lights.

    day yearish)
    some how last week my headgasket blew with no abuse on it, which is rare imo. in the 5 years i worked at toyota i never saw a 3.4l blow one with low miles like this. so i decided that if im going to rebuild the engine i might as well do everything all at once. so in the past month i have been working on putting car together with the new bells and whistles:

    toy tech 3" lift in with bilstein shocks
    full exhaust from headers back
    jet chip was added
    2 12" elec fans.
    7" double din screen(radio)
    michelin 275's (mild but not to beefy)

    so thats it for now until i get bigger tires and new wheels plus a wench

    ps i have a few parts for sale if anyone needs now(stock parts and some still very new

    I applaud your new build thread, hopefully you'll get some pics up soon,

    prolly no need to lecture on doing half a head job (even if just blown gasket) it was just a short matter of time before the other side went on you, shit like head/valve jobs, lower/upper end rebuilds are done in pairs (i.e; do all the same time)

    looking forward to your progress though...:thumbsup:
