    Nothing real new I just fixed my washer reservoir the little U-pipe was cracked and dumped liquid everywhere. Flex-seal was a waste of money btw ! So I bought some hose and just made it work and its lasted so far!
    [​IMG]

    Also got my oil filters from camelback which was awesome so I got my oil changed!

    Then I got my niffty decals on which I really love!

    Did you have a bed liner in your original box for it to rust like that? It looks like the donor one did too or they never hauled anything.

    How bad of condition are the exterior bedsides on the donor?

    Is there a muffler heat shield on the donor box? I might need one.

    Have you removed the running boards yet?

    It is always nice to see a surviving 95.5-97 Tacoma in the midwest. They are the originals.

    I have a duraliner so water got trapped under it and rusted it out I assume. The donor one is actually really nice just surface rust here and there.

    Exterior of donor box however is not so good since the truck was rolled lol

    I don't believe there was a heat shield on it but I'll check for you

    And no I haven't removed them yet since they're fiberglass I figure they're protecting the rockers till I can get them bedlined

    And thank you I love the front ends of the 95.9-97 although they never came in TRD right? that's the only complaint I have.

    I guess I should have been more adamant about looking at those Iowa Craigslists, I go to school in Kirksville so I look up there more during the school year. No need to apologize!

    Edit: I'm a dumbass and didn't see that you sold it earlier

    And for today me and a buddy put on the light bar and pods along with my blue sea system. All I need now is to run the wires and I'll be in business!

    And I love my light bar mounts made by TacoManInHD :cool:
