Tacoma Buildup
« on: April 03, 2008, 04:52:44 PM »
Here's the latest project. I've always liked Toyotas way more than Fords, so we'll see how this goes.  Here's a little teaser until I get some work done on it and take some good pics..

The bumper was modeled after the Total Chaos tacoma's bumper according to the previous owner. I'll snap some better shots of the cab and engine cage. I'm also thinking about running 35's since I have them readily available and the tires on it are shot. So we'll see how that fits pretty soon, I'm going to probably change the tires out sometime next week and starting buying parts to get it running. Anyone know of a good smog legal header for these beasts?

It's got the stock 2.7L motor. I'm trying to find more info about it and also looking for a complete exhaust setup (decide on a header, find two o2 sensors, pickup a muffler, and get to welding). I've read the 2.4 exhaust stuff will fit a 2.7. Anyone have any experiences with this?

Picked up a parts truck to finish this bad boy up! http://www.desertboard.com/board/index.php/topic,181.0.html

Spent most of today finishing the cage, and getting it ready to drive (and sell). Decided it has to go to free up some cash for the Ranger build. Can't have it all.

Here's a shot of the progress on the cage, the bed cage turned out pretty sweet and simple. Total gnar gnar race truck, fo sho.
