    I recently acquired a 99 Tacoma Xtra Cab V6 4wd 5spd. It had 85,000 miles on it. I traded a couple old cars I had and 3,000 cash. I have so many plans for this truck. I've already started my build with the building of a new front bumper. Here are a few pics of the process so far. Its not completely finished but started it 2 days ago. I mocked it up with cardboard. Today I finished tacking all the metal together. Going to finish welding the rest of it tomorrow. Enjoy... This is only the beginning. Plans for a rear bumper, rock sliders, lift, tires, wheels, and more.

    Well finished up the front bumper last night. There are a few more things I want to do to it, but for now its on the truck and painted until I get it powder coated. I will be starting on the rear bumper today and hopefully it will turn out ok.

    So today instead of starting on the back bumper, I decided to start the sliders instead. I will probably have them finished up tomorrow. Here's a start on them.

    So I finished the sliders last night, I got them all painted but decided to hold off on welding them on the truck since I'm thinking I want to powder coat everything now. Today started on mocking up the rear bumper haven't really decided on how I want it yet. I made up a base to start from. I cut the back body down and plan on a wrap around bumper. I should have it all tacked up tomorrow if I can draw out what I want to do tonight.

    This morning got a few more things done to the rear bumper. Got the wrap around part almost finished, have to do a little more bracing under there. Started on the appearance of the rear bumper, trying to be similar to what I did in the front. I should finish all of it up tomorrow, hopefully it will turn out.

    Thanks for all the comments, and I love this site. Ideas, helpful tips and lots of support.

    Got the rear bumper completed, got the sliders completed, and the front bumper completed. Lift is on the way. Wheels are in the garage, just need to get some tires. What else can I do/build?

    Came out very nice. You should throw some bushwaker fender flares on there.
