    This build stems from the sale of my 05' Tacoma to pay for school among other things. The Runner was at one time my Dad's who picked it up from an older women in Michigan. She kept it very clean. It will never be the same again..... The plan is to build a capable overland vehicle, just enough to get my girlfriend (soon to be fiance) and I to where we want to go. It's going to be a long ride so please enjoy!
