    ord steering brace(no frame cracks)


    exterior:
    front warn classic bumper modded to fit tighter to the body(not going to sell the winch with the truck)
    truck tailgate
    roof rack

    interior:
    rear folding seat works and is in decent shape
    bedlined cargo area(old)
    vinyl ford bucket seats in great shape, driver is power
    no carpet, some rust, but none through the metal

    ya it seems stupid. now that i think about it, i probably couldn't even sell it for what i have in that swap. maybe ill just stick it in storage for a while. i just know that now isn't a smart time for me to be pissing away cash on it.(still live at home:o)

    Matt, dont do it!! Dear god dont do it!

    Set it to the side for awhile, throw your money in the bank.....handle school, food, keep the supra moving, dont blow money on gas unless you have to, work your ass off, and when you start getting to a good note pull the blaze out and have some fun...

    I keep thinking of sellin mine, but i cant give up on something ive put hard work into and had so much fun in....No matter how many times i blow it up.
