    They may be more comfortable to drive and ride but damn I love our simplicity and durability (and looks).

    TBF I’d take a rust-free ‘84-88 over my current truck any day. Toyota’s pickup is getting uglier with each face lift the older it gets.

    EDIT: The photo shows the difference between Projector vs OEM. That shroud was not from TRS as it is octagon shaped with a white inner halo and a outer recessed blue halo that is fluorescent. It sharp but not my thing.

    And I’d settle for a rust free 01-04 any day lol. Totally agree, they are getting uglier. 05-12(?) being the worst

    Why do they have castor so uneven? 1 degree off side to side won’t do well for ride quality

    I found the clock delete at a local scrap yard here in NC but I say just find some thin plastic and JB Weld it from the inside and it’ll look the same

    Finished up my 1st bumper build. Came out super beefy. Still think I want a rap around so may sell this one and start another.

    Also cleaned up all the leftover nuts and bolts from the part outs.

    One down near the pan and one on the intake runners.
    So what’s the plan with all the parts from the old LT truck? I figured you were going to swap the to the double cab.

    Thanks for the thumbs up,
    The fun begins with the boost,

    Just got the supercharger before and after dual temperature gauge setup too.
    Will be interesting to see the difference

    Rust, dents, miles, extra metal.
    It's like they designed these to rust.
