Looking good! I'm still running the sway bar, but will be ditching it when I install the 'Hoes. I'll let you know what I think. :kewl:

Thanks NWI! I may be throwing it back on soon, drove to Indy in the wind today, and at 70+ she got a little squirrely on me. :D Just had an alignment this morning so I know it had to be the sway bar.

I guess I can play along.

Mod #1.......find better job, buy new daily driver........turn truck into full time trail rig since it is payed off.

then........

short term:

-hack fenders for 35's and only 2" lift
-new sliders
-new bumpers
-either bob bed or figure out how to build a flat/tube bed that looks good with tacomas rounded body style (have not seen one yet)
-bed monted roll bar that can become an exo at later date.
-flat belly

long term:

-full width 1 ton axles
-lexus v-8
-crawlbox and dana 300
-exo
-40's
-coilovers all around

hmmm.....I forgot about this.

Lets see..........since my first post I totaled the truck.......bought a new one...built it.....wheeled it.....and am 90 % done re-building it

Right now I am focused on

Installing my crawl box
building front bumper
add cab hoops to sliders
tie rear bumper to sliders to front bumper with tube

Added some of my recent updates to my list.

New parts not listed are a passenger tail light and complete bedside after hitting a pole this winter. Got ran off the road. It was either a head on with a flying Suburban or the ditch and pole.

Also got a new grill, headlamp and had the roof painted after some farmboy decided to shoot his snow blower (FROM HIS GRAVEL DRIVE) across the road.

It's been a hard couple months with the Taco :(
