Abu, brought this white 2013 Tacoma to us to do just a Marlin Crawler Ultimate Taco Box with 4.7 gears and an RST Twin Stick FJ T Case swap. Yeah, that went by the wayside really fast as he decided to do a complete RST Beast Edition swap to his Tacoma. We started this Tacoma build in my driveway before we got the shop like so many other builds before it. Because they were all built in the driveway and they were the dreams of so many we called them all "Driveway Dreams".
So this build is a mile stone of sorts, being the last of the driveway built RST rigs.
There have been some awesome rigs built in this driveway. One a magazine cover truck, then one of the most photographed, most capable, and well known first gens Tacoma's around, and countless other trucks from mild to wild.
So follow along as the last of the Driveway Dreams is built. This one is going to be Epic!!!
We started out by disassembling all the suspension components first. Off came the wheels and tires, I don't say rims anymore because someone got his pink panties in a bunch over the word rims. Oh brother..... Anyway.....
Next came the coil overs, springs and shocks along with the other suspension components and the steering rack.
Then it was time to bring out the torch and start cutting stuff off. This is when we send the owner home. There is nothing like the look of both shear terror and joy all at the same time when you take a torch to someones truck. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
