    Don't drift this truck. A car or something with better weight distribution would be best for a drift build. You should 1) restore it! 2) realiable street beast 3) pro street drag truck! Hahah my opinion.

    ive heard you all and im going for option B

    Its gonna be a realiable street sort of beast. im not aiming to have the fastest truck or anything. just something i can rely on cruising to the beach and hurrying up if i need to poop haha.

    im going either on a beams or 1jz motor full brake swap lowering her a bit and looking for maybe a color change.
    Probably new wheels too because im riding 14" and the disc im putting gonna be 15" haha

    Cherrs.

    Wow, that looks good! Is it repainted? I like the wood bed liner and color matched headache rack.

    Yes it was repainted for sure but it tried to match the original color. (6C5)
    (It didnt hahah this is much brighter in my opinion)

    The wood bed looks nice but its crap im planing on re doing it with 3mm aluminium.

    Wood is good for looks and super light duty op.. going to aluminum, will be better load capacity and better serviceable since you can just weld to repair.
