So anywho, some of yall on here know what I have been upto when it comes to getting back into the crawling scene. For those who don't know let me introduce you to a legend I just picked up from the guys at Slee Offroad in Golden Colorado

Originally hailing from california, built by a top quality fabricator, started in 09, being brought back in 2015; the fishmouth fabrication rockwell hilux!!
Original build thread (thanks to YROC for posting it up) http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/toyota-truck-4runner/555900-project-tt-hilux.html

in the midst of rebuilding one of the steer axles, decided to take a break and post a pick of a parts pile! from such great vendors like ROCKWELL OFFROAD, Ruffstuff Specialties, PSC Motorsports, and BlueTorch Fab. Stay tuned!!
