    I bought the truck all stock two years ago up in Colorado. After my dream sr5 fell threw from Cali. And I know I was skeptical cause I thought it would be a rust bucket from Colorado. But I made the trip anyway and fell in love when I got there. I got it from the original owner who used it as a ranch truck and kept it in the garage when not using it. The body wasn't perfect but I was still happy with the price I was getting it for. She was 100% stock when I got her drove her all the way back from Denver to New Mexico about a 9 hour trip and she made it like a champ. She's got a 3.0. Plan on doing a 3.4 swap soon. She's got a 5 speed as well.

    The next day after I got back from Colorado I drove another 3 hours to pick up her new shoes. well used but new to her.

    About a month later I put 3 inch drop control arms and 3 inch drop blocks in the rear to get her a little closer to the ground. Told myself I'd be happy with that low.

    Boy was I wrong!!!

    I got tired of the old skool grill and switched it to a newer style. Plasti dipped the bumper black to see if I'd like it. Wasn't diggin it so soon stripped it off

    Next came the sound system. Put a new kenwood deck in (soon to be a touch screen with Nav and back up camera) Got rid of the worn out dash speakers put kenwood 6.5 inch components in the doors with the tweeters mounted on the a piller put kenwood 6x9s in boxes on top ofthe box with four 8 inch infinity subs. Powered by a 2000 watt kenwood amp

    Put in Honda del sol seats with custom brackets made from the old bench seat rails. to follow the Honda theme with the wheels. Also has a 4Runner center consol now (not pictured). And put in the map light from the 4Runner also have the seats from the 4Runner to throw in here when I send the del sol seats of to be redone

    And then the fun started. Tore her apart cut the whole back half off from the cab back. Re built the back half. Did reverse 4 link so I could keep the gas tank in the factory location. 2 viair compressors. Dominator bags. Valve block inside a utility box cut down to fit. Shocked front and rear tubbed the front. Have the stock bed floor except for a little spot for the c notch. Two 3 gallon tanks located at the back of the back half. Avs switch box. Avs digital gauges in the vent in the dash that reads each bag pressure and tank pressure.

    About half of the parts

    Future plans.

    Gonna do the 4Runner front end. A sun roof out of a Grand Prix. Body work. The off to the paint shop. Gonna re create the factory color and throw some blue flake in it. Re do the factory decals. Tub the rear and bed line the bed. Possibly body drop in the future. Hope u guys enjoyed. Any questions feel free to ask.
