bummer about the frame rot, but looks pretty fixable to me. I've worked on a pile of those old yotas and they all seem to have frame rot somewhere

keep at it, looking forward to seeing how this thing turns out

that frame rot sucks, but looks totally salvagable. I owned that tacoma that I think was yours at some point and we plated the hell out of that rotted frame and wheeled it hard, no issues. Basically we got drunk and rebuild the entire frame from the cab back.

Ha wondered what happened to that. Kinda miss it, or at least having the extra cab... Long since scrapped I assume?

I'm not to worried about the rust. I've let it bother me too much in the past, and given up. Now having worked under some rust buckets, this aint no thang. 8) Maybe I'll get some plate this weekend.

I mounted up the intercooler (used my rabbit one). Fit so perfect behind the grill, like it was meant to be. Piping should be pretty easy. Tracking down a few more oil line, then coolant lines. Wire the 5 wires up it takes to run the AEB and she'll be ready to rip! Maybe...

Kinda wish I had just hung on to that truck.

Anywho... So here's the intercooler installed ( may add a couple braces). Fits very nicely behind the grill. Very sleeper like. Boost pipes and intake are mocked up as well. Need to make a bracket for the intake and a bung for the diverter valve. Hooked up some other little bits too. Getting closer.

are you running stock management? How does the truck go compared to the old 22re? Mileage?
