Bro-coma.. getting unbro-d
 
Well after almost 3 years of buying parts/tools/and moving out im finally able to start building my 02 tacoma. i had a built 85 runner before this, but wanted to build something more complex and newer. the silver bullet was part of my inspiration to get a tacoma years ago.

i bought this truck fully bro-d out. wasnt looking for most of the stuff that the original owner did to it, but i got a good deal and it was the model i was looking for.

i already have my 60 and 14b built and ready, dual ultimate's are done, have all my steering/rod ends/and lots of other stuff. its getting a 3 link front, 4 link rear, coilovers front and rear, and air bumps.

i still need to buy coilovers, bumps, and link material. moneys been tight with my new job so im not able to buy parts like i was able to a year ago.

either way i have enough parts and money to get 3/4's the way done, before i need to buy the last expensive items.

heres all the pictures to get caught up, ill be starting my motor mounts this weekend.

when i bought it

(starting 3 weeks ago) new clutch tranny/duals and cross member are all done. still need to do a few inside cosmetics for the twin sticks, front frame is done, fish plated/body mounts in. i was able to flat belly it no problem. also lifted the motor up over 2 inches since i have the 01-04 hood, a 1" body lift and just other extra room this truck seems to have everywhere.

toothaker1219 07-15-2011 10:29 AM

do you weld for a living? cause your welds are redonkulous!

-Matt- 07-15-2011 11:28 AM

Thanks guys. Where I work I'm a fabricator probably 70 percent of the time. I took a college program to learn and get cirts. But I don't use my certs and what I took was strictly for everything else but MIG. Iv just MIG welded enough over the years and taught myself.

IRUNROCKS 07-15-2011 11:43 AM

Nice!!! :D

started on the motor mounts this evening, i have a busy weekend but they will probably be done by sunday. i used half of the original motor mount. the later style 3.4s had the thick stamped steel motor mounts instead of the cast ones some of the earlier styles had. made it really easy because the bolt pattern and depth changed so much on the mounting surface it would be a pain in the ass to completely start from scratch.

Thanx bro, now my taco deff looks like shit:laughing: Very nice start.:smokin:

generalee7 07-16-2011 08:23 AM

Now that's the way to go! Chop the entire front of the frame off :D No IFS bracketry to grind off, no weak IFS frame. Shit, I just might cut up my truck now after seeing how easy you made it look :laughing:

kiyul4130 07-16-2011 09:59 AM

you chunder fuck!!!! ill have to come see this before i permanently move away matt. i know its going to be done when im finally gone which sucks :(



brian, cutting the whole frame off is the easiest thing to do and should be the only way to do a SAS. you start over with a new frame thats twice as strong as the old one. also like you said, no god damn torching and grinding. i hate that.

Where the fuck you moving to? And I agree, once I get my own garage, I may have to swap the double cab :laughing: I'm thinking Chevy 60 up front, 70u out back, leafs front and rear on 40's...

-Matt- 07-16-2011 03:29 PM

Ya dude its so easy and worth it took me 10 minutes to cut it off and probably 4 hrs to make a new one and weld it. Saved me time. Looks a lot better. And way stronger

Booger Weldz 07-16-2011 05:27 PM

Fkn sweeeet! What gears and tire size u running?

Booger Weldz 07-16-2011 05:39 PM

5.38 and 38s would be good and a ballisticfab 14 bolt shave kit!

Apimpdad 07-16-2011 06:32 PM

Great start. Keeping an eye on this one :smokin:

Fawk Awph 07-16-2011 06:41 PM
