    really into on tacoma world and figured why not make a build page on my other rig
    check my build for my taco here: https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/blanco-taco-build.352499/

    anyway
    i got this guy back in 2014 in Tuscon and really needed some work

    when i got it it has some 35s on it so i sold those and bought some 37" creepys for it and the had left over kings in my garage and put them on the front and redid my shock towers.

    its got a chevy 4.3 in it with a quadrajet 400 right meow and a 700r4 tranny. the carb is horrible for crawling so im tearing everything out and doing a propane set up on it. its been almost 3 years now and ive only taken it out maybe a handful of times and just has constant problems but the solution is to just do propane. anyway heres whats done to the poor thing below and some pics

    84 solid axle
    tan? gonna get painted a metallic grey here in a couple weeks.
    RUFs
    King 2.5x12 smoothies
    chevy 63s in the rear with ranchos (getting Kings for the rear)
    one off bumpers and sliders.
    37" creepy crawlers
    15" steelies
    (getting walker evans and omf rings)
    pretty basic
    locked front and rear

    so with that out of the way heres whats to come here for the coming months
    1. Propane sorted out
    2. Paint it
    3. Custom factor 55 Flatlink E
    4. Synthetic winch rope
    5. Rigid Dually xls
    6. Rigid Duallys on the pillars
    7. Walker evans and OMF rings
    8. My old Taco rear axle swapped under
    9. Spacers to match the new rear width
    10. Strip the interior
    11. Cage it
    12. Rhino line the interior
    13. PRP seats
    14. PRP harnesses
    15. on and on and on

    how it is today

    propane kit will keep the truck running no matter what. can flip it on its roof in the yard and itll run all day untill it east itself of oil. with a shitty carb thats on it now the fuel bowls dont get fuel when the trucks on its ass end so with propane thats no problem

    got the front bumper all finished up. still have to go get sandpaper so i can sand the truck and finally paint it after a month of saying im going to. but heres the front pretty much done.
    one of my best friends is in with Factor 55 and hooked me up with a Custom Factor 55 Flatlink E
    then some nice 9 inch led lights ive been wanting to use for a while, and some dually xl with a mount behind the fairlead. came out pretty bitchin.

    I like the paint job. The blue looks good. How are you liking the propane?
