Mobil1Syn is Building a Truck

Captain Coconut isn't taking the initiative to start a build thread on his truck, so I'm doing it for him.

Welcome to REV_B of the coconutmobile.

Truck is a '95 Tacoma. 3rz 5 speed. Only details I know of the build, is that the IFS is torched out, and this pic he sent me tonight.

hahaha awesome

i'll give an update: frame got stripped and boxed last night from the cab back. i took a whole bunch of pics of chris "stackin dimes" but he left the camera at the shop

No solid axle for me. I'll just kick his ass in the desert and stay away from the hammers.

this thread is not complete without a pic of the UNO MIG responsible for all welding done on Rev A of the build

This is hard work updating someone else's build thread. I wonder if he hasn't found this yet, or if he is ignoring us. :confused:

It's about Fawkin time we see this thread pop up. If he takes any longer, it will officially be a longer build-up than the 50% 2wd-4wd conversion. :flipoff2:

What kind of an equipment list are we gonna see? What kind of T-Case, driveshafts, etc.
