That is a great truck cause those Toyota 22R engines are bulletproof and last forever.

upvoted ya and raised your rep to 41 woohoo! you're on a roll girlie!

My gosh, this truck really has a story. Can't wait to see it all again.

I can't remember, how long had this truck been parked after the deer accident? I know it was at least 2 years wasn't it?

Yes 2 years minimum for sure. Possibly more.

Awesome job. The 22r engine is dam near bullet proof. Did you know they made that truck with a turbo for a few years? 22RE. Rare as hens teeth now.
