did you do the paint and bodywork? was curious how you did the bedliner: colormatched or painted over? came out great!
I replaced the driver floor, rocker and kick panels both sides, both rear quarter side panels and the rear sill then I sandblasted the entire body, epoxy primed it then sprayed the bottom.the interior and the engine compartment firewall with tintable bedliner, and then it went out for body work and paint

I am curious... If your truck came with the PTO winch from the factory or dealer, did it have the "reinforcement" piece behind the bumper? Its on the microfiche but I have never seen one in real life. It appears to be a piece of U channel with mounting holes to add to the rigidity of the bumper.
There is nothing like that on the bumper. I am the 3rd owner of the 40 and I know it was bought originally on the island of Guam and it had been hit in the front end sometime so I would think this is not the original bumper. when i bought the truck it had been sitting in a field for 8 years and it came with a lot of pieces. I would be interesting to see that stifner

What are the specifications and supplier of the cable you installed on your winch? I was going to put 3/8" on mine since metric cable is nowhere here stateside, but oddly enough all I can find is communist chinese crap.

Beautiful rig. I'm in Simi Valley as well and we spoke a few months ago when I drove by your house in my grey Tacoma. I'll have to bring my Sky Blue 78 by to hang with your 68 now that I finished the suspension.
