I have spent so many hours here on ExPo reading build-ups, reviews, and everything in between that I figured its about time I introduce myself and my project. A little less then a year ago I picked up a used 1997 Toyota T100, I was looking around for one for about 5 months before I found it, I was being pretty picky on what I wanted as far as miles, year, manual trans., seats, color.
Heres what I got:
-97 T100 SR5 V6 3.4
-Camper shell with carpet kit.
Here is a picture of how it rolled up on drive way the day I picked it up.
The first thing I did was take off the mud flaps, nerf bars, and logos. I am not a big fan of chrome.
Next I ended up selling the camper-shell, nerf bars, and the nasty old carpet kit. This increased my build up budget by almost $600. And made my truck look a lot better.
Now I am ready to do some work. Here is some of what I have planned for the new truck:
-Power roll down rear window (like the quad cab tundras)
-Camper shell with double cargo doors
-Roof rack with side awning, lights, surf racks, and possible tent incorporated.
-Front bumper with hitch and some lights
-285/75 R 16's on some black steel rims
-On-board Air system
-Dual battery setup
