    I got a new-to-me truck. Finally have a 4wd instead of just a prerunner.

    It's an 02 double cab 4x4 TRD
    144,000 miles
    I'm pretty excited :rolleyes:

    Plans are to build it as an expedition/overland rig while keeping it a daily driver. I have a lot of plans and Ideas but this will be a very slow build. Saturday I plan on switching the rims and tires from my green truck to the silver one. I also hope to pull the spacer lift and aal and switch it over to the silver to give me some room until I can afford some coilovers.

    nah just one project. once I get the stuff off the green truck I plan on selling it to pay for the majority of the silver one. I love that truck, just can't afford to keep up two trucks:(

    Got the ugly running boards taken off to give a little more clearance

    Got the cb mounted in its temporary spot. eventually I will get one mounted in the dash under a cd player. got the antenna mounted on the passenger side. I'd rather have it centered but the way the toolbox was on the inside it was impossible. It looks crooked but its just bent back under the carport.

    Also did the gray wire mod. very simple easy and effective.

    Awesome man, glad to see you finally got hte one you wanted and why wouldnt the antenna work in the middle? i centered my bolts on the antenna mount around that lil bar that runs from each handle and it doesnt effect it...maybe yours is different but Good Luck w/ build and swap!

    that little bar had a guard that went all the way around it and was about two inches thick and at a weird angle. If I got some real long bolts I guess it could be possible. But I wanted it done today lol. I might do a little wheeling with a guy after we swap the stuff tomorrow so I needed it in.

    I have a good girlfriend that followed me in the green truck to a buddy's house to work on the swap.

    The green truck is now back to stock.

    and the silver one looks a million times better. It now has a 2.5" spacer and aal. I know its not the best but this is just temporary.

    and my girlfriend and I have coordinating vehicles.
