    This truck is so bad ass it doesn't need headlights... It can find its way home in the dark without them... Its so bad ass that it doesn't even need wipers. the rain is too scared to land on the windshield... Even Chuck Norris is scared of MY Tacoma...

    SHIT... RUST??? ITS A TOYOTA!!!! A rust free toyota is like a Pimp without a hoe... It just doesn't happen...

    All kidding aside, the rust is minimal. The spare wheels is rusty, but the frame is good and everything under the truck is nice.

    Then went to the junk yard yesterday... $65. Wiper & washer fluid harness, washer fluid tank, headlight harness, heater controls, floor mats, jack & kit, center console, most all the brackets and bolts I needed. :D

    The whitewalls are very important, too.

    Good start on the paint job...needs more bedliner on the body, though.
