almost forgot about this, my taco had 3" cornfed spacers up front w/OME struts and 2.5" AAL in the rear. had barely enough room to clear those 34x10.5 swamper LTB's . i had the little thing places it shoulda NEVER been, LOL .
My picture of the 1985 Solid axle truck I bought on Monday. Bought it off the original owner truck is bone stock, never painted its never even had a radio in it. block off plate still in the dash. Zero rot, never wrecked. Came with 20 years of service records. Has a 140k original miles.
1. Ditch the wheels and install Toyota SR5 alloys.
2. Install a radio Order an Alpine and Alpine dash speakers along with a stock attenna.
3. Install Bilstein shocks.
4. Get rid of the plastic floor and install a factory quality carpet kit along with roadkill.
5. Line X the bed.
6. Add power steering, A/C and factory dash clock.
7. Hella H4's
8. Find a nicer rear bumper with D rings and a class 3 reciever. (black)
9. Install an ARB front bumper and Warn winch
10. Install a rear ARB locker.
Other than that I'm leaving this truck stock.

solid rockcrawler/off roader. Marlin dual transfer case set up, fox shocks, electric locking rear diff and torsen in the front. Eventually got full cage, drive shaft mounted e-brake, and some other goodies.

Photo I took of my '95 runner just today.
Picked it up just to get me and my planes up to the top of the
continental divide and other similar locales for slope soaring events..
Trying very hard to avoid turning it into yet another very expensive hobby
but I'll probably throw a Powertrax No-slip locker in the rear end just
give me a little more confidence on the trails. Maybe sort out some
quick release end-links on the sway bars.

If so: coolcruisers.com, sor.com, cruiserparts.net, ebay and ih8mud.com
Yup. Already been searching for a few things on coolcruisers.com. Thanks for the links.
I got some pictures this past weekend of my project. I won't be starting until about January, since we won't be moving into our house until Dec. First on the list is replacing the whole brake system (nothing works but the e-brake), putting a new roof on, and getting it running better (sticky float in the carb, etc...). It'll be a working restoration so I can hunt/explore with it. Mostly it needs cleaning/derusting/bodywork. Runs great other than the oil pan full of gas due to the carb issue.
heres my toy. it has a small block v8 with TBI, 700r4 with 208 transfercase, full width dana 44's, locked front and rear, 5.38 gears chevy 3/4 ton axles. whole lot of fun on and off the road. believe or not this is my honda killer. it's sad when i role up on a riced out honda and my trail rig is alot quicker
