Doors are so over rated.

Yeah, wrong forum to mention that one.. most of us take off our doors on a regular basis so its not as shocking.

Progress doesnt count unless you got the pics to prove it!

Oh I got pics, you know I do! LOL

Amazingly enough, I don't really think it took more then about an extra 30 seconds to pull the doors of the toyota truck when it does to pull the doors of a jeep if you run the nuts on your jeep door hinges.

And actually as far as progress goes. In my mind, tonight should be the first true progress in this build cause it'll be the first time something is actually being added to the truck rather then unbolted, cut off, or thrown away! LOL


Long shot but... If anyone has a late 90's-'04 toyota tacoma and needs any interior pieces, dash pieces, heater pieces, A/C pieces, ABS system, brake booster or master cylinder, or Air bag stuff PM me cause I've got it all and it'll all be fore sale for a pretty cheap price! Rear axle with selectable locker with 4.56 gears from the tacoma will also be for sale later in the summer/early fall if things work out time wise.

Maybe I will star building one from scratch now since you have all these parts. They hold their value well.

Funny you mention that, this '04 was purchased for $14K. Right now out of the original truck... The frame rails, metal cab, engine, transmission, steering rack, and rear axle are about all that remain factory toyota. By the time it's done, the transmission and rear axle though also will be replaced!





Just for you bonez, I know you like the pics!!!

These are nice tires but too skinny.

YSB is probably outside setting ants on fire with his new optical script.

I haven't burned ants in a long time. I need to do that again. My right arm is having some issues at the moment. It started swelling up a couple days ago and hasn't gone down yet. My hand looks like a three year old drew it.

Other than that, I've been typing out business plans. Trying to figure out what is still viable in this economy. That's taking up whatever brain power I have left.

Prostitution, street pharmacist(drug dealer), assassin, scam/con artist(for polka cause he's got the art degree) trash collector, police, fire, paramedic, guns/ammo sales! Those are about the only viable business ventures in today's economy!

All of those things are paid for by the gubment.


Look at the full on public death threats Scott Walker is receiving after defeating the election recall. There will probably be no kind of punishment for any of these people. Just like the BPP. It's totally ok to threaten to kill people apparently.

Oh trust me, there's no skill involved in ripping a truck down to nothing! The catch will be if I can make it back into something drivable ever in the future rather then creating an expensive paper weight or garage decoration! LOL

Hey guys, you wouldn't happen to know any good Jeep Trails near Cedar City, UT would you? I'm going up to visit my brother and I'm thinking about taking the Jeep.

Also, I'm thinking about buying my first gun and I'm not sure where I should go in Vegas to make my purchase. Just gonna get a Remington 870 or a bolt action .22, depending on the prices I find. I've just been browsing Dick's Sporting Goods, but is there any place in particular I should go first for better prices, service, etc?
