Mid Engine Toyota Cab 4400 build in PDX

I originally started posting the rebuild of this chassis on the old build page but feel its in the wrong spot. Theres no toyota to this build besides the cab and doors and will fit in much better in general. Ill start off by saying all the changes were by choice, not because of mistakes or a lack of quality. This thing was dialed for what it was first built to do. I just happen to want to go a different direction and was willing to spend the money and time to do that. Some of the post will be duplicate of what I have posted on the old page and new pics will be posted regularly with updates. A big thank you to everyone involved and to Austin down in Utah who allowed me to buy the cab and chassis from him. And to Cornfed and his son for all there help, skill and knowledge If you would like to check out the tread started by fishmouth in 2007 the link is

https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/toyot...-tt-hilux.html

Good looking build. I think you will like the drivetrain, I know I do in my 4500 car. We need more Toyota's and other vehicle based cars out there.
