Got the tank from Pepsi Co. Tucson.

-Just the full tank w/CGA-320 Valve and the standard plastic guard.

The Powertank HPX regulator kit was another story. It includes the handle (not cheap, but worth the money.) With what I saved from getting the tank for cheap justified getting a nice regulator.

Last fall I bought a set of 'new' OEM rear Tacoma leaf springs for $75 from a guy on here. I was going to take my leaf packs, and the new leaf packs, and build a set of Frankenleafs to fix my sagging ass end.

Before I got a chance to mess with it, I found an ad on Craigslist for a guy who had Deaver 9's and complained that they gave him too much lift, and wanted to trade his Deaver 9's straight up for a set of stock leafs.

So - long story short - I got a set of Deaver 9's for $75.

Got my 87 2wd pickup for free. Well, I paid $80 for the timing chain kit and cover but the truck itself was free.

Got 5 pro comp mud terrains in good shape for $75

Paid $40 for a spare top for the 4runner

An old Craftsman 10 horse riding mower for free (Although finally blew it up today thing burned more oil than gas)

My dad won a PS3 at a company dinner

I got a big mini fridge on craigslist for $10, keeps the drinks ice cold and will freeze them on the highest setting

neighbors gave me a 10'x14' metal shed when they moved out.

Got a big TV from someone at work for free.

As wrong as it may sound I've had more bad luck than good...

1980 hilux, $100 title in hand.

Old man was towing it into the junkyard and I snagged it before he got to the gate. Only needed an engine, trans, and case.

in pretty decent shape for a southern truck.
