My Truck Right Now:

Ok, For those of you who don't remember, this was how my truck was last time I left R-F.






Well, I re-did the rear bag set up to lay out, and on bigger wheels, which of course I dont have lol, and swapped the bed for a flair/step side, got a full sheetmetal bed floor to go over the ugly gas tank, air tank, comps, ect. I'm still working on a roll pan and whatever else I want to do with this beast...

thats right, 305,000 Miles on this truck, and I am the second owner lol
Its slammed for now, but later I plan on lifting it about 7-8 inches and throwing some 35's under it, not for any reason really, just want something different, but for now, I'll enjoy the gas milage haha

Ranger is looking good, but it needs a different set of wheels imo. What year is the Yota and what's leaking out of it?

1984 and it was transmission fluid, a swapped the transmission out, and it still leaks, but its just a tailshaft seal.

on the old tranny the inner tailshaft was worn, so it wobbled alot and caused blown seals and just poured out fluid. The trail that you see is from a stripped drain plug on the transmission pan.

and on the wheels, I know, but that toyota was $750, and the the transmission was $375, labor was $400, and I am unemployed haha, so wheels are last on the list.

I like the oldschool wheels on the ranger. Those chrome ones that used to be on it are hideous.
