To bad your truck is 5 lug or I would have bought them off you. I love these trucks but never saw one lowered before. Stay updated with this one for sure.

thanks guys.

the stance is pretty much where i want it. 
lots of work ahead though.  oil leaks everywhere, rear brakes are metal to metal and axle seal is leaking.  also need to relocate gas tank back under the bed instead of in the bed, replace front ball joints, tie rod ends, the usual 30 year old car stuff.  then the interior: seats and dash. 

the cool thing is previous owner did a 22re swap so if you guys have spare 22re stuffs let me know!

CONGRATS ON the sexy truck, dude!!!! Nice to see some diversity to what we can learn on here.... I'm damn excited to see this come along. How is the front suspension set up on this? does it have I-beams?

thanks man.   

yeah always wanted a mini truck and with the 22re swapped in i couldn't resist.  cheap to maintain, easy to work on and parts are easily sourced.

just finished new rear brakes, axle seal and got a tacoma bench to go in.

fronts are just torsion bars.  actually had to raise it up a little cause i couldn't get up the driveway. doh!

That truck is awesome! Already converted to fuel injection too? Thats insane, I have been fighting with my carb and dreaming about fuel injection. Some people have all the luck!

nah, been kinda busy with other things so this is on the back burner. 
installed a bench from a Tacoma and possibly getting some different wheels but nothing too drastic right now.
probably going to replace front upper and lower ball joints and tie rods as the next project.
then maybe a loud outrageous exhaust.
