the_white_shadow Havent touched it since i took it off the lift. Been working on Tims truck in the meantime.
Tims ride



Also picked up this gem through an online auction.

75 f100 Shortbed 300ci inline-6 Automatic. The base of all base models.


I got it running and driving(ish) last night. Plan is to do the typical crown vic front end swap and use a later model mustang IRS. Drivetrain choice is top secret.

Gslander Love the build so far!! A tundra is on my wheeler build bucket list!

Agree 01tundra should have never sold that truck. I'm glad I got to wheel with him a few times and see it in person. Cool truck!

I know he had a toy reduction box for a while then 4-speed atlas. He never should have sold the darned thing.

Love the build so far though. I have a soft spot for Tundras, as I had an 02 on tons (still my avatar pic), but with a radius arm setup up front (from my mud days ). Keep it up

I remember his build. There is another I found on IG that linked the front. Cool build for sure.

I wanted a manual transmission truck and toyota never put one behind the 2uz. I chose the v6 truck because it already had the 6-speed in it and figured it would be easier to use the oem pedals rather than fab custom brackets into an auto truck.
