Well there is a bit of a story around this one, Jan. 7th I hit some ice on a corner out at Nordegg and piled my Tacoma into a tree.

Truck is in rough shape but I'm okay. So the Taco needs some parts to bring her back to life. And I might as well make some improvements.

I'm looking for the front rad assembly, LH front fender, Hood, Lights, A/C condenser, steering wheel, driver and passenger side mirrors, and radiator for a 2006 Tacoma.

The extras are Dana 60 front axle out of a Ford. Wrecked early 2000's Tundra with 4.7 V8 for engine and drivetrain swap. Keep your eyes peeled, I'm going to go hard on this and hope to have her back for the September Rubicon run.

So I currently don't have a wheeling rig. I'll still plan trips and ride along on the odd one.

Thanks,

John

Hahaha, Yaris? Go home! Yeah, trucks looking real pretty right now... Gonna be awesome when it's done though. You really should get the 45 finished first though. It's a way better babe magnet!

Hey John, as I already said - sorry about the truck but glad you're OK man! Just a suggestion: You should be able to find all those Taco items on ebay. The upside is that the parts will be brand new, and you will have it within a week or two at a reasonable price. Downside is that it will be aftermarket.

Also, there are a couple wreckers here in Calgary that seem to usually stock Toyotas, so you can check with them:
P&S auto parts 403-285-3400
A1 parts 403-280-8888
Forest lawn 403-272-2611

Also try http://car-part.com/

Good luck! :steer:

I'll get some pics up. If I want to be wheeling anytime sooner than next year I have to get the Taco back on the road. The Cruiser is just way to far behind and the cost to finish it will be hard to cover being a need to buy another vehicle to drive in the mean time.

Build thread is in my sig for the cruisers. I'll update the build thread tonight with new pictures.

Well for your viewing displeasure...

Good news is I picked up a cheap super duty for axles. Now I need the Tundra and some specialty parts. Anyone know anyone interested in my current axles?

What, no pics of the tree? And the Toyota Gods looked down upon the Ford/Chev parts added to the Tacoma and said, 'it is not good.' Maybe its a sign? lol

No doubt, insurance wrote it off, cut you a check and a new beast will rise from the ashes of the old...

Well I'm having really good luck. Got my one ton diffs, 60 front, sterling rear, complete 2003 tundra already pulled the engine out. Got all the nasty plasma cut off the front of my truck and should have the whole drivetrain pulled out today. I'll get pics up when in a bit.

Still looking for parts for facial reconstructive surgery for the front of the Taco.

Well here is the beginning of the next version of the Taco. Kind of a forced mod since I crashed into a tree. I wanted to do this for a while and the tree sped the process up for sure. Needless to say its time for a lot of cutting and welding.

Here is the donor for the V8. It was a terminator 3 2003 Edition.

And here is the Taco with its not so straight front clip.

Anyway I started by pulling the engine out of the Tundra with drivetrain.

Then after that engine was out I started by cutting all the twisted metal off the front of the Taco. Then end of the frame rails is twisted so that all gets cut off. The frame other then the horns is good. So I'll build a new front cross member and link the front.

The engine cracked the balancer and front cover in the crash so not sure how if it will ever run again.
