Yeah my bed is really straight and I would want to do it the right way the first time lol. What did you use to cut it with? A die grinder ? That would make a clean cut.

Yeah use a die grinder with a thin cutoff wheel. I took 11 inches off my bed and it was perfect

Traded my 5vzfe i had for this turbo transmission and Transfer case.  Not sure if i wanna slap it in this truck, sit on it, or sell it.  However, the 3.4L has been sitting in the garage for a long time and nobody made any offers on it.  My buddy (who i got my tacoma from) picked up another tacoma and he is building it so he offered the trans/case trade for my motor and i said sure.  Ill get it cleaned up and looking nice soon.  This thing takes up way less space than that engine did :rofl2:

School just has me really preoccupied.  I am getting by as it is right now, but if I sold this I could literally not work until I graduate, I think.  Plus I will more than likely be out of the area all summer, so that leaves no time as well.  Then when I graduate, there is like a 95% chance I will be moving, and when that happens I sure dont want to have to deal with moving all my stuff. 

But.....  On the other hand,  it just sits in the garage. all it is costing me is like $20 a month on insurance and whatever registration costs which isnt too bad.  I could probably have it finished for less than $300.

I say fix it, let it sit, waiting to go hit the trails, this way when you get some time off in the summer, you can jump in and go

If you move up here then you can easily find a similiar or better truck no problem. I say let it go and use the money to finish what is important right now. Its not like you have all that much into this truck. If you loved it you wouldn't constantly be thinking about selling it, right?  :chew:

I agree with SwWADoosh... The only time I've ever considered selling my yota was to help pay for our hospital bills for our daughter's birth... Family first. Fortunately, we were blessed with enough in savings to cover what insurance didn't, but had we of been short, I might have sold it...

So if you're thinking about this more than once, and it's weighing on you, might be a good sign..

Move up here :D  We'll help you build a better one! I know a guy who sold an 87 runner shell (stripped cab on a straight frame) for $75. Yup 75 bucks..

Messed with the truck a tiny bit.  Got some rocklights installed which should be plenty good if i ever go night wheeling. :rofl:







Also got this thing out of the garage last weekend.  Thinking of going and putting around somewhere this weekend too!

Went up again yesterday and had a little fun.  Ended up bending my front leaf pack when i backed off a ledge and slammed down on it.  So i guess im on the hunt for a set of new front leafs.  :doh:

Well it has been a long time since anything has been posted in this thread and a lot has happened in my life since then. However, I am done with school and these days I am just working and trying to save my money so I can buy a house at some point in the future. There will be some progress on this truck soon though, as I need to get back into the wheeling game. This truck has sat and been neglected for far too long and it is time to start throwing some money at it.  :blah:

Here in the next month I think I will start putting a little bit of work into this, and hopefully acquiring some parts for it. Just trying to come up with a budget for this truck, and I am not rushing to start spending money. The biggest challenge regarding this, is I only am able to work on this on the weekends, and I need to find a place to work on it where I can leave it a week or two at a time if I don't get to finishing whatever it is I am working on.

I have gone on a few snow runs here and there, and overall the truck has done decent for how little effort I have put into this truck in the last couple years, but it definitely needs some love.  Here is a few random pictures I have, I will have to start documenting better like I did with my last build.  Hopefully more to follow in the near future!

You might ask, "Mike, what is your list of plans for this truck?" 

My plans as of right now (in no particular order):
Make motor run correctly (maybe eventually motor swap even though i said i would never swap another motor.   :smack: maybe a 3rz?)
replace alternator
Move steering box and plate frame.
Replace front leaf packs
trim fenders
ubolt flip kit in back
rear shocks/mounts
reseal my tcases
hydro assist
bumpers
find bucket seats to replace 60/40 bench seat
I would like to inspect my turbo trans, and install it pending everything is good internally.

There might be more to it than this, but for right now I need to get it running good, and fix my steering/suspension issues before I can even drive it again. Last weekend, I had the alternator start acting up where the charge light would come on and go off repeatedly most of the night. Also engine was horrible on power, it was running super poor and smelled horrible (signs of a clogged cat?), regardless we ended up looking under the truck and noticed the cat was glowing red. Obviously not good, so collectively we decided to just beat the hell out of it with a hammer to try and get the catalyst to break apart inside and allow the exhaust to flow. All i know is i ended up getting to listen to the most obnoxious rattling you can imagine.  Turned the stereo up and cruised on, There were some times where the truck ran pretty darn good after that, but by the end of the night it was absolutely horrible.  I will be cutting the cat off and seeing if it runs better, if so I guess i will give it a tune up and make sure it is running good and then throw a new Catalytic converter on it.

 Next time I am able to work on the truck, I plan on hopefully putting some working into getting this thing running properly then move on from there.

Glowing cat converter is a sign of excessive fuel.
This can be caused by many different things.
Leaking injector, misfire, the list goes on from there.
Glad to see Your getting it up and running again.
Remind me what motor is in it?

This has a 22re in it.  Iíll be honest, I havenít touched anything under the hood in a long time.  When I got it Mike and I checked and adjusted the valves and did a compression test and everything seemed good there. Put new plugs, cap and rotor on it around the same time (prob a year and a half ago or 1,000 miles)

Truck has a bad tps for sure, and I feel like it has always been low on power could possibly be related to it. :haha: last time I had to smog it, it passed with super low numbers. :dunno:

I was already thinking maybe bad fuel injector, some type of bad ignition component causing an incomplete burn.  Or maybe the cat has been clogged for awhile as it lacks power to me.  Another thing to note is this truck will not hit rev limiter. I have heard it bounce maybe twice. It will rev to like 5300-5500 sometimes and bog down/stop revíing, sometimes It will go to like 6000 rpm and bog down.  If that is any indicator of an issue, maybe the exhaust has been restricted for some time (see: clogged cat?). :dunno:

So long update:  the truck has been sitting for months now.

Truck had a blown headgasket between cylinders 1 and 2. So I pulled the engine and dropped it off a while back to have Jim at 22reperformance build it.  I was going to just have my head resurfaced, but Jim informed me it had a cheap Chinese head/cam on it.  Therefore, It is getting a new head/cam and the bottom end gone through.


Plans for the near future:
:turtle: I need to order a clutch kit/flywheel. (Leaning towards marlin kit)
:turtle: Send off fuel inectors to be cleaned/rebuilt or replaced.
:turtle: Need to replace alternator (Dave says he has one for me  :thumbs: )
:turtle: This weekend I plan on cutting my front hanger off and cleaning the frame where it has cracked and been booger welded who knows how many times. :flamer:  With this, I plan on moving the front hanger an inch or so forward, as much as I donít really care for my skyís hanger, Iím not going to replace it and it makes the hanger position pretty easy.
:turtle: While the engine is out, I am planning on cleaning up the rest of the frame as a lot of brackets were not fully cut/ground off when it was sasíd.
:turtle: I need to get new front leaf springs as I have the top 3-4 leafs bent on my driver side (oops said he had leafs :thumbs: )
:turtle: Moving the axle forward will most likely require me to cut my shocks hoops off and redo those as well. :dunno:
:turtle: I would like to drill and tap my steering box for hydro assist, as I would like to be able to turn in the future.
:turtle: I need to add bumpstops to the front end.
:turtle: Buy hydro assist ram/hoses/cooler/etc. (thinking of modifying my stock pump :dunno: )
:turtle: I still would like to make or build bumpers as it needs to get done eventually.
:turtle: Get engine back, re assemble what I have to, then install.


All these steps are a big enough financial cost, I will probably chill out for awhile and go slow with purchasing these things, but who knows.  As summer gets closer I might go crazy and drop a few paychecks at once. :haha:
