    I have 03 peerunner. It is 2wd but soon that shall change when I finish collecting parts to do a conversion. This is what I have on my current set-up. Yes I take her out on the dirt.

    This is what she looked like when I first picked her up. Untouched virgin taco :')

    LIGHTING
    Retrofits with Apollo 3.0 and H1 7.0 projectors
    Spyder tail lights

    SHOES

    MISCELLANEOUS

    Good peeps all around! It's going! You find a new axle yet? Mine should be available soon. Im not sure when but soon. Also I found another one, he's asking for 500 and it's locked. I'm not sure if you're looking for one with a locker or not. He's local too

    Got clamps for the camper shell in the mail today, the guy I bought it from before had clamps I had to drill into the side rails on the bed. I didn't want to make any holes for something that I wasn't sure I was going to keep. These are the clamps I bought on Amazon iFJF Powder-Coated Mounting Clamps for Truck Caps and Camper Shell fit CHEVY Silverado Sierra 1500 2500 3500,DODGE Dakota Ram 1500 2500 3500,FORD F150 Titan,TOYOTA Tundra Set of 6 (Black)

    Ill post later on how they hold the shell in place.
