so i've owned a toyota for 6 years now and never wants to dent it and what not so.. 4 months ago i decided i was going to build something i could rail on and dent up and not have to worry about any of it. i came upon a really cheap 3rd gen cab bed and frame for $200 and decided it was time! the original plan was to leave the front leafed 4 link the rear and just run an exo cage over the existing body... well plans change and heres what we started out with and what we ended up with


after paint



ended up saying bye bye to the front clip

front axle i picked up for $100

little more cage done

got the top done

dumped the hood down a little and took about 7 inches off both sides

Really like the look. And just so you know, I will be copying the hell out of that top x-bar on my build, minus the splices :flipoff2:
