Truckin - - MIXED EMOTIONS -

Thomas went above and beyond while build­ing his Taco. It was al­ready tra­di­tion­ally body-dropped, ev­ery­thing was shaved, and the doors were given the sui­cide treat­ment. The sus­pen­sion was crafted and in­stalled by Thomas, Brian Brubaker, John Yoakum, Kevin Riffy, and DJ Roberts in­side his shop. The rear end was swapped to a pre-Tacoma ver­sion to give clear­ance to tuck the 20-inch wheels when it laid out on the ground. The front end was re­moved and swapped for a newer ’04 ver­sion. The billet grille was cus­tom­ized to sit fur­ther back than other Toy­otas, and the lower grille was mounted be­hind the valance in­stead of the front. A sun­roof was re­moved from a Cava­lier and added to the Toy­ota to give an open feel to the cabin. When it came time to cus­tom­ize the in­te­rior, Saturn seats were used to re­place the stock Toy­ota seats.
