    Hey all, I am returning to TW since I am getting my Taco back from my son.
    He is getting the Prius, I get my Toy back.

    I am getting ready for a major overhaul/rework of my T.

    First area of concentration, the motor. I have almost 190,000 miles on it and I want to get it rebuilt.

    Some might ask why. Although the engine is basically fine, the gaskets (don't remember the name) that encircles the front anterior of the motor housing is leaking. $1800 to fix, to so I figure while I am getting it fixed might as well dump the cash on a rebuild.

    Any suggestions of GOOD, no AWESOME shops for Taco.

    Hell yeah I am.
    Just sold my wrangler and I am in rework and Rebuild mode with the Taco.
    Will start a build thread when I get going.
    Was here a while back when I started with my T, so now...
    Thanks for the welcome.
