what is your budget?
I know money is tight these days, but how much are you willing to spend?
is it still going to be your daily driver?
Right On

2nd, whats your budget and goals for the truck? We can make a few suggestions based on what you're trying to do with the dime.

Well.. if you're starting with just a cab and frame and going from there, I'd recommend going custom. If you're crafty and qualified to cage it and get nuts fabricating, you could potentially bust out a front-end for around 1500. I've seen several legit tube toyota front-ends done on a budget. The most expensive part is the coilover/bypass.

well i talked to a friend that lives in california and he says we would be able to get a drawn design from a friend of his and we would be able to built custom upper and lower a arms for how much it cost for the metal and the uni ball set up. any other tips on what i need to do with the front end
