New Builds and Teaming up at Anarchy Expeditions

So lately I have really been slacking on this whole blogging thing. I have a bunch of major updates and kinda want to bring this blog back up to speed. As many of you guys who have seen my blog will know I have ongoing build threads on my 2 toyota trucks on Expedition Portal, toyota-4runner.org, ttora, tacomaworld, etc, since you guys have probably followed the to this blog here.

For beginners the shop is starting to look like a full shop. Made a bunch of recent purchases regarding tools and have most of everything currently needed to build up and keep the trucks in tip top shape. Bought a new plasma cutter, argon tank for the mig welder, 35 gal air compressor, tons of air tools, and a new shop press aswell as a new floor jack.

Also I am happy to announce that instead of a solo venture by myself, I now have 2 more friends who have joined the Anarchy Expedition crew, which brings out truck count to 4. Each vehicle will be outfitted with its own individual gear. We plan to do a lot of custom work to the newest addition a 2001 double cab Tacoma Prerunner that was involved in a front end collision. Here is a teaser picture of whats to come on this truck. More updates to follow.

Starting off The New Years Right

So I have been slacking quite a bit on my updates for this blog. In fact I haven't posted anything on here for over a month maybe two I'm not even quite sure to be honest. Anyways I told myself I would try to keep this blog up to date this year so this is how I will be starting the new year off.

So I guess I never really posted anything about my newly acquired 4runner. Although I bought it over 2 months ago before I sold my jeep I never posted anything about it. Since I will be building the 4runner up quite a bit I figured I'd throw it on here aswell. The 4runenr actually sits a tad taller than I'd ideally like it to sit, but the purchase price was right and it was clean with all documented work. So I opted to buy the cleaner well taken care of rig instead of another project. The truck was rust free and easily the cleanest one I could find without breaking the bank.

 Some specs of the day of purchase:
-7.5 inch lift
-35 BFG MTRs
-ARB front and rear lockers
-3.0 V6 new gaskets and 5 speed manual
-ARB air compressor
-Dick Cepek DCs
-Full Size matching spare and highlift
-Sliders welded to frame
-front skid plate
-H4 conversion on headlights
-reupholstered interior
-new head unit

 So here she is the first day I purchased it.I plan on making a lot of changes soon to come.
