Default i just got an '84 extracab

So feel free to pimp some yota parts on me. I brought it home yesterday and i'm planning to run a tube bed since the frame is broken just past the cab. I'm thinking 35" tires and keeping it fairly streetable.

I just got an IFS steering box from Karl today and I've got pllans to get some more parts from him already

actually an ExCab on a standard cab frame is the whip. you have to move the 2 rear body mounts, but the rest will bolt right on.
if your going tubebed then your golden. the excab wheelbase is pretty long. search for the old all-pro yota. it was an excab on a standard frame. looked sweet.
