Just picked this up from OK last weekend. Flew up there on Saturday morning and drove it back; I was back by 10. Great truck; it's better than expected. Now my family can role with me on some scenic trails. :cool:


Damn, I'm gonna miss that truck...

WOW!! That was FAST!!

It's time to move up to a Tundra for more towing capacity, so...

2001 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road Double Cab 4x4

Automatic trans, AM/FM/CD/Cassette stereo, Cruise Control, A/C, Power windows, locks, mirrors, Driver's side grab handle (not available in 2001, added from a 2002 Tacoma)

157,385 miles

TRD transmission cooler
OEM electric rear locker
ARB Air Locker up front with small ARB compressor
Full Old Man Emu suspension
Extended rear brake line
3/4" axle relocation plates (for forward over-fender clearance on the rear when I ran 33x10.5/15 BFG M/Ts)
16" black steel Wheeler's wheels with 265/75R16 Hankook Dynapro ATM tires
ARB Bullbar (winch capable)
Demello sliders (installed by Demello off-road)

All Pro e-locker skid
CBI custom rear tube bumper

DeflectaShield Challenger narrow, deep tool box with hi-lift jack mounts (see pics) perfect for the DCab bed

Always run full synthetic engine oil, diff & xfer case, NAPA Gold air and oil filters


Cobra 75wxst CB radio (all in the handset) installed under console with 3' tuned Wilson antenna with breakover base mount on the ARB bullbar
Kenwood TM-G707 2m/440 radio with 18" thru-the-glass antenna (I will most likely remove this unless you are a licensed amateur radio operator and would like to have it ... we can negotiate :cool: ...)

Vent visors on all 4 doors
Toyota all-weather front floor mats
Toyota bug shield

Recent work done:

Replace OME suspension on 7-1-2008 at 127,000 miles (882's, struts & new rear leafs, bushings & shocks)

CV axles both replaced at 122,000 miles
Rear brake job 122,000 miles
Lower ball joints replaced at 137,000 miles

Full disclosure:

There is some body damage behind the driver's side rear door where I rubbed up against a tree while wheelin' (see pics). There is also some light hail damage on the hood, but hardly noticeable unless you are looking for it.

This truck was purpose built for my style of wheelin' with the best components I could afford. It's taken a while to get it in this ultra-capable condition, but the quest is now complete for me and it's time to move on. It's time for this rig to be in the hands of someone who will wheel it more than I do (which lately has been never).

$11,000 obo

I am located in Edmond, OK 73003

Here is the >LINK< to my PhotoBucket page with lots of pics.

:clap: You plan to take it into Mexico eventually and wheel it like the other truck?

I hope to go someday as well.
Yes, already planning on June 25 weekend. I should be able to make it a 4 maybe 5 day weekend. We are also planning on getting of the wheels and doing some more hiking though some canyons and caves like the last trip.

Front locker will come in handy, I'll see how long I can keep the CV's in one piece.


STITCH - Come and Take it!
