    Hey Guys,

    I haven't been on here in probably 8 or 9 years and have long lost my username and password, so I figured I would start fresh..

    I'm Jeff from Maryland. I have a couple of Toyota's that I play with often. My first truck is a 94 Pickup that's bodydropped. I have had it since 2004. My next truck is a 99 Tacoma v6 5 speed that I bought and have been updating for about a year now. Since I bought it I have supercharged it, all new air suspension, KBS control arms, new bed, paint, body and interior. Currently in the assembly process. I also just picked up a 69 Stout from a guy that was on here years ago. That will be the next on deck project. Here are a few pictures of what I'm rolling. 1.jpg

    Thanks guys. Looking forward to getting on the forums more often again, sadly most of them have dried up with social media taking the top spot.

    Thanks man. I bought it stock in 2004 and my buddy and I did all the work to it. I have taken it to many long distance shows as well. It was also featured in Minitruckin' and Street Trucks.

    Yeah, let's see some pics! You got links to the MT or ST features?

    You mention you put the KBS arms on the '99- what did you use on the front of the '94?

    I just ordered the bag setup and 3 link for mine. Guessing I'll need spindles to lay it flat in the front. I've already got more in the suspension than I do in the truck and still need to buy rims. lol. Any info would be appreciated!

    Sure I can attach those.

    Street Trucks was november of 2011, they dont have online features for whatever reason I can post pictures later for sure.

    Originally when I bagged the truck I used Aim drop spindles only and modified the front crossmember to lay flat. After a couple of years I found a deal on a new set of Cando control arms for it. The rear suspension is a reverse 4 link. While I have never experienced any issues with it I plan on redoing that when I change the truck in the future. I bought Seth Bomar (twistedminis) 3 link rear setup that he was going to produce but never did. Other modifications to the truck include 2.25" body drop, wilwood disc brakes front and rear, suicide doors, kept heat and a/c, engine bay is smooth and painted along with the back half of the truck, 2wd front sheet metal, grant front bumper, intro v-rod wheels..it had enkei LM1's originally.

    It's funny and honestly I never expected to get it featured. I originally bought the truck and wanted to bag it because I could get my dirtbike in the bed easier. Needless to say it never got to see a bike and I bodydropped it that same winter. I wish the magazine was still around! I have enjoyed traveling all over the country with it and meeting and hanging out with some really cool people. Definitely wouldn't regret a minute of it!

    Yeah you're right on that one. Check out Common Treads Magazine, it reminds me a lot of tailgate magazine less the girls haha. But good quality and features too.
