Well I sold the taco Sad


It was time to get the wife something better than a 91 celica. So she got an 01 Xterra 2wd and I got a 92 pickup for a DD.

We sold her Celica and I got my rock crawler project.




can you say extra parts...









So the plans for now is going to be to get the engine running strong and all the vacum lines hooked up.

Future plans 5.29 gears front and back locked, dirty 30's and a bunch of other stuff. Time and money is against me at this point lol

Hi patrick!

Kurt, patrick has a newer taco and he's into modding shit so I bet he could help you out Smile

So the engine does run and its a 22r with about 45k on it. Future plans...well its going to crawl. So 5.29 gears, locked front and back dual cases 63" chevy springs in the back move the backs to the front. Truck already had the hi-steer from trail gear so im going to get the six shooter knucles for added strength with the reunion bearing eliminator kit. Armors under and around the diff and transfer case. Exo cage with a tire swing out. And probably go with upgrades birfs and axles onelce I got to 35" tires. That should get me going for now lol.

Im probably forgetting stuff but I have it all written down at home.

I just got all the medal to make my welding table today so that's the first thing.

If you're going to truggy that thing out, and you're starting with the engine, do a propane kit.
