    Those pics are all old ^. The truck has been down since last Feb, when it started gobbling coolant and oil and I pulled the tired 22RE. I originally planned to rebuild it and throw it right back in, then I came across a deal on a 3RZ I couldn't pass up. This is my first engine swap and it's going slow, but it's almost done and I'm hoping to have the Bastard back on the road in a month or so.

    Nope. I did haul it out from the side of the house and put it back in front of the garage though, so maybe that means I'm about to get back to it. :D
