Sounds like a heck of a project! It's aways fun to see what people come up with for their rigs.
Glad to see you've got your thread going, now it's time to figure out pictures.

No worries- maybe you can get a mod to change the title and include your screen name + spelling correction. That 'w' always seems to jump in that spot.
PS. So glad I don't have to wash that!
It looks like it's a nice clean truck underneath all that though.

I don't know my 2nd gens at all...it's not a suspension lift, is it? More like a spacer lift? Body lift too? Somebody with actual knowledge might answer that one.

i started tinkering with vehicles about 13 years ago, no prior experience and no schooling. I messed with my own cars, and did my first engine swap right away. I learn by doing, am mechanically natured, and read alot on forums. The key is to take your time and learn at your speed. These forums are excellent places to learn. Grab a service manual and browse through it, browse the tech section of the forums and read the problems and solutions (if you see a response from rad4runner you are likely to learn something)

i say go for it yourself, just don't do it in your daily driver. Learn as you go. It's how i did it, i went from an oil change tech, to a Honda line mechanic, and now I'm a lead maintenance tech at a production facility with no formal education. I can thank the honda and toyota tech forums and the little bits I've leaned along side seasoned professionals through the years. You can do it too.

I have lost interest in working on my cars to some degree after doing it professionally. That's why my build thread has stalled slightly instead of being finished 6 months ago. That and i work 60 hours a week and have three kids and a wife.
