    Also, It has 431k on the clock (yes, really) and *everything* works. It drives fantastically. I Bought it from the original owner with all the maintenance, and records. The only real bummer is that the rear hatch is rusted through in a couple spots, and it needs to be replaced but other than that, it needs nothing. It drives super comfy on and off road too so that's a bonus.

    Future plans are a 2" lift, 33" tires, maybe some tacoma wheels or something and a rack for our roof top tent. And a snorkel cause I wanna look cool.
    100 is the way to go! Ours has 240k and I just got done rebuilding/replacing the entire suspension (everything baby) with shiny new parts. Have the Old Man Emu set up with new OEM dampers and it rides pretty dern nice with a lil lift too.

    The wheels are 5x150 so you will need the newer/current gen Tundra wheels AND spacers. I went with Spidertrax when we put on a set of Tundra Rock Warriors. Tacos are 6 bolt.

    Lots of 100 dorks out there with loads of information and advice to share. Let me know if you need any local assistance with suspension set up or other 100 things. We have had ours for 1.5yrs and plan to keep it for the long haul.

    Did I miss the year??
    2009 Honda Fit Sport Manual, 71k
    1999 Toyota Land Cruiser of WOW, 241k
    No Euro.

    I think those TRDwarrior wheels look much better on a 100 series than they do on a Tundra. Like anything Toyota they seem to not depreciate on the used market.

    Sorta... The engine mounts bolt up, the transmission cross-member moved an inch. The engine plugs right in, but about 5-6 wires are different. A relatively easy swap all-in-all

    if you want to read the swap, here it is:

    I did this stupid thing



    I flew out to Seattle with Devan with a one-way ticket. My mission was to buy a small truck. This is what I ended up with.

    1998 Toyota Tacoma
    240,000mi
    4wd w/ auto-locking hubs
    5-speed manual
    2.7L 4 cyl

    It's slow as balls, but still fun. At this point I've pretty much just done maintenance stuff, with the exception of wheels and tires. I bought a set of Diamond Racing steelies and put put some pretty aggressive Cooper tires on it. Then I replaced the shocks with Bilstein 5100s, which allowed me to level the front end a bit.

    In about November, give or take, I picked up a 99 golf TDI with an auto trans. I did a timing belt and suspension, and I let Tim Davis take care of a heater core for me. I'm planning to drive that for a minute to make sure the engine is all sorted. But, ultimately, that TDI motor will go into the Tacoman. I've always wanted a small-ish 4wd diesel truck, but we haven't been lucky enough to get them here. So, in my own true fashion, I'm going to make one myself.
