Right on! Thanks for the advise
. I'm coming into weekend rotations at work so, I won't be available on the weekend for another 3 weeks
. Sched. looks like this - Sun/Mon, Sat/Sun, Fri/Sat, Thurs/Fri, and so on. It's a wicked good schedule though 2 days working and 4 days off
Copy Oct. 17th. That's just before my B-day on the 20th.
As far as the sliders go, I would like to be able to jack the truck up off the ground with a hi-lift using the sliders. If I can do that, they'll probably be strong enough for anything Putsy will see. I'm re-thinking my truck plans. Putsy being my DD and #1 ace reliable vehicle
, I think it would be wiser for me to build up an old 83+/- standard cab which is already set up with solid axles. From what I've seen it's a decent base to build up a crawler from. The Custom Cab would be a pavement queen/ Sunday go to market driver/ show truck. I'd like to keep the Tacoma on easy to moderate trails so that I don't beat the ever lovin' $#!+ out of a damn good truck. The wife would be like -
! LOL that smiles funny. I'm still on the fence on this decision but the more I think about it the more it makes sense. I like this smile a lot too -
So, sliders and possibly lockers may be as far as I take the Tacoma project
. Plus a few odds and ends like seats, extended rear brake line, bash protector for the diff and maybe some kind of skid plate pkg. This way I can have two capable trail runners combined with a daily driver and a beat the crap out of me. I can have it all
