    I wonder if an admin can move all the Toyota posts into a new build thread for the taco.

    So Drew at Goat Built finalized his TJ chassis. I’ve been working with him to get exactly what I want to build off of.

    I decided to get the main frame and front engine cage with skid plates etc. it should ship out this week.

    Decided to get the “fixture” kit to make sure everything goes together square. Should make the main chassis easier to get together to build the rest off of.

    I have been buying and selling a lot of things to fund this hobby.

    Picked up some 43’s. Ordered a bunch of stuff from Barnes. Should be fun.

    It’s a lot of pics, but I hate a build thread with no pictures! Hopefully someone down the road can use them to help on theirs.

    Finally did something. Got the fixture kit together and started putting the puzzle together.
