    Hi everyone, welcome to my build page and thanks for looking. So I had a prerunner Toyota pickup that I parted out and used the money to buy this taco.
    Truck: 2001 Toyota Tacoma double cab 4wd
    Current specs.
    Engine: stock 3.4 L v6 with a K&N cold air intake
    Suspension: front- Total Chaos Long Travel with King Coil overs/ double bypass

    Rear- Deaver J59 with 16"King triple bypasses/ custom bed cage
