Been on this site just reading up a ton of info very awesome site! So I signed up my name is Mitchell and live on the island of Maui,Hi and I own 2 Toyota trucks one is an 09 tacoma small lift and I also have my project truck which started of as a bone stock yellow 1980 hilux/pickup 20r 5spd regular bed that had under 65k miles on it truck seems to be from Cali and has some RV tow mounts on the front and has the air pump with the tons of vacuum lines. Will post up pic in the next couple of days and yes it's a ruff truck that I put through hell as a young kid now trying to get it to par. Thanks for reading and have a great day everyone!

It was all stock when I got it When I was fresh outta high school I should have kept it more stock form but I was young and just neglected it So now it's time to fix the rust so I have an 83 parts truck that I will be taking apart today the rear end is frozen on the yellow truck so it need to be towed from my parents home to mine and work will be under way

Are those the standard 4wd guards on the front or have you flared them a bit extra? Keen to see how you've done those wellside flares as well. They look sick man. I'm planning on getting 4 4wd guards, 2 nice ones for the front, and 2 to cut the flares off for the wellside.

The front and rear is 4x4 parts the rears are just the stock 4x4 rubber flare that just bolts or I have 3m tape holding mine

Yes the rear needs more low and there is a front gap between tire and fender but just gotta have less camber.the front is almost the lowest it can go sits about 1"-1.5" off the ground and running it static no springs up front
