I have been slowly working on this girl for about a year now. I bought her with a blown head gasket. There was very little rust on it so I pulled off the body and treated the frame with Eastwood products. After that I rebuilt the upper end of a used 2.9 and popped it in. With a brand new rough country suspension (1.5 inch lift), I at least got it moving. Tons left to do, but here she is. The plan for this one is light duty easy to mild moderate wheeling. I have a built 2015 Taco for the harder stuff.

Here are a few pics, but I'll try to post my progress as I move along. Thte kids named her "The Blue Pig"...that'll do pig...that'll do.

nice paint job.
Thanks! As long you don't get too close she's pretty.

Just passed inspection and she is on the road. Long time coming for the Pig
