I bet yota owners are really going to appreciate all of the time and details that went into posting all of this. It's going to look so much better with the SAS and some beefier tires. Good luck!

it did take some time.. thanks.

sas is in the works.. i already have a complete 85 solid axle and a top shift gear t-case.. im still debating between a trailgear sas kit, with a FROR sas brackets.. because there kit is the most complete. or a triangulated 4-link. which i have NO experance in.. i tried "ians" 4link pdf file. but still apears alittle much.. my truck is a daily driver, and i dont have a garage.. i have a spare bay at work. but dont want my truck stuck there for weeks on end.

my taco is a pre-runner if anyone didnt notice

Wow

I can't even convince myself to cut a hole for a snorkel

Looks great and I bet a LOT of folks will appreciate the time and effort you spent detailing it all out

And here I'm always cussing that there's never enough room in my bed as it is! Crap with red flags always hanging out the back. LOL!

That's why the Chili has never gotten bobbed. Cool as it would be... I wouldn't be able to sleep in the back any more.

Great write up, no worries on the spelling and such!

Yessir, I think the bobbed trucks look unique and obviously help departure, so different strokes. My 'Nest would not fit a bobbed bed, it would be tough to carry dirt on a roof rack, blah, blah. Really cool to see how it's done, though!

Looks good but I def let out a huge "ummmmf" when I scrolled down far enough to see this was a newer model Taco. Phewwwww ( =

Ok so the ummmf may have came out wrong.... It was meant to be a wintse or something to see a newer taco getting the chop
