    Hey,

    I blew the head gasket on my 1997 T-100 SR5 3.4L V6 ext cab truck. It’s got 250,000 miles on it and was running killer before it over heated and blew the header. I don’t have the time, tools or skills to fix it myself and the shops want over $4,000. The truck blue books and ~$4,500 so obviously I can’t justify paying for it to get fixed. Its got relatively new Rancho shocks and BF Goodrich All-terrain tires. I’d sell it for $1,000. Here’s a few pictures.


    Driver’s side looking good. Notice relatively new tires.


    Passenger side dent. about 1×1


    A little rust on the bumper.

    The plastic on tailgate lever cracked last winter so that needs to get fixed as well as the passenger side auto lock. That should be easy, I’ve just been lazy. Everything else is money.

    I would consider posting this on the Ih8mud forum classified, lots of toyo geeks on there.

    I wish I had a place to put it (not to mention the cash), or I would fix it up myself. Love those trucks!!!

    Bummer, man. What are you gonna get?? Maybe something gigantic and Y-E-L-L-O-W??

    Putting the poo in swimming pool since 1968.

    I try to take more of the blend-in approach, kinda like swanny but not so much.

    Bought a Chevy Silverado 4×4. It’s fancy and nice but I loved driving my T-100.

    Disappointing…I was hoping to see some pics of a Backcountry Assault Vehicle project truck complete with cooktop and wind resistant meeting area. 😥

    Man, I’d love to keep the truck and make it BAV. I know it’s a couple day project but any sb.comers want to make some side cash? I can hand tools like a mfucker. I put some sealant in it so I can drive it to your place.

    If someone bro deals me a fix I promise to build the most wind resistant cubby you’ve ever seen. Built-in ice chest with replenishing six packs too—forever.
