    Hey all, I’m new to the forum, just a bit about me and my toyota history.
    Got my first truck when I was 16, a 91 toyota pickup with the 22re, loved that thing! About a year ago I was headed home from work and I rolled her. So I found a 97 Tacoma with the 3rz, bad ass engine! Planning on upgrading soon! Would like to supercharge it in a few months, will upload pictures soon.

    Thanks! Yeah it was just me, it was all stock, just had some 32” tires. Wide tires and black ice don’t mix well haha IMG_0210.jpg

    Did you cut the cab and weld a new top on, replace the cab or just fab something?

    I got a new cab. All the body parts were toast on it so it sat as a frame engine and tranny while we did engine work to it, good times! Way easier to work on an engine without a cab haha

    I would imagine. I haven’t ever had the ease of that. Although the 22re has plenty of room in the engine compartment on those pickups. They are fun motors to work on.

    At least they where able to fix it and keep it going. Those little trucks are seriously bullet proof.

    Yup. They gave Toyota their reliability reputation.

    Awesome that you still got the 90/91 model going. Did you get frame damage when you rolled it three times?

    It was 3 separate rollovers , the last one tweaked the drivers side front frame horn a tiny bit but just pounded on the cab a little and she went on

    Wow. Three different rollovers and the FrankenTaco is still going. Impressive.
