MHO- Do the bedside. That bed is too nice to trash. I bet Bradford Auto Body would fix you up.

Some bad news, I don't think bedsides are still available. I know I got the very last 4Runner left bedside - factory stopped making them.

The guy was sure you could get aftermarket bedsides for these trucks. and I guess the bed isn't that nice. Bummer...

Well... I think it is a really nice looking truck. I am generally a fan of tube beds, there are some really cool designs out there. But it isn't as cheap to do as you might think, and I know you were wanting to build a nice, clean sleeper and capable DD instead of a thrasher or purpose-built...

You'll make a good decision, whichever one you make.

Long live the Blue Raja.

I vote for a nice ute/flatbed. Build storage for parts and gear. Have tons of tie down points. After all that build some nice supports for fiberglass bedsides and paint to match.

Ran into issue #1. this is the passenger side 3.0 motor mount bolted to the 3.4 block. Solutions?








Is this the cast piece behind the driver's side motor mount I drill into for the 3.0 dipstick?













Last question is the 2001 Tacoma M/T a drive by wire? I cannot remember the change over Model Year, but I think it is... If so then
