Here are some Day 1 and Day 2 pics of the new truck I bought for the shop. I picked it up for a real good deal. It is a 2003 Toyota Tacoma regular cab, and as basic as they come. Charles and I had been thinking of what chassis to put my race motor in and this is what we chose. We will be posting pics regularly as the build comes along, but all we have done so far is take out everything. Our goal is a 8 sec street truck. Thanks for looking.

Not exactly an offroad truck, but still kind of cool anyways. What kind of motor you putting in it?

Cool truck I guess. Looks like a 2WD mini? With that amount of power, I'm assuming you'll be doing fuel mods, installing beefier axles and drivetrain components, as well as gears? What size tires are on there now? Looks like the new ones are going to be slightly larger? Welcome to the board by the way, and good luck with the build.

Have a few more updates.

The wiring kit, parachute, and fuel cell arrived. We are mocking all the stuff up so we can send the truck to paint.

The wiring kit has started to go in and the fuel cell is mounted. We also have the motor in so we can mock up the motor and tranny mounts.

Here you go:
