Just picked it up last week
1990 Mazda 2600i 4x4 5 speed 2.6L I4 with 208,000 km on it. engine was rebuild 30,000 km ago. Even has all the repair bills in it from back in 1990

Just welded up a flange and hanger for the exhaust since when I bought it the previous owner ripped everything from the cat back off on a stump.
Just needs a rear tube bumper, front bumper cap, re wire 3 signal lights, replace the header to cat pipe gasket since it leaks and rebuild the rear wheel cylinders. Oh and do a front end alignment at school with our machine

800 dollar truck ftw

No kiddin, cant tell in the pic but it has a big dent on the front fender on the passenger side. Ill take a picture of the 2 1/4 exhaust and muffler I made at school

Guy at  the parts counter quoted me 60 bucks for a thrush turbo muffler, then with my discount it was 45, then my neice comes out and goes put it on my account and bam 28 dollars out the door

Going to exit right infront of the drivers side rear tire

Nice buy. Enjoy.

I can't wait to pick up a vehicle this summer. Man, do I need it.

I cant wait to drive this thing up at the power lines. Some crazy messed up fun happens up there in the pits

Not sure about the AT's that are on it for tires, might need to find a set of used 31's on craiglist

Ozwarg, im white, I dont buy rims
If I were to get new wheels they would be a set of soft 8's

Snorkel is a consideration actually, but not necessary
Side exhaust is in the works as I said
No firework mortars... Just a gun rack for the back window. You know, to be classy

That was a consideration as well.... theres one rust hole in the entire truck and its in the cab right where I could run a pipe and a flapper.... If it was diesel then YES it would get a stack and id increase the size of the injectors and turn up the fuel pump to get it to blow some black smoke

Im a heavy truck mechanic sooooooooo yeah stacks always come into play lol

Thats a pretty nice truck for that kinda money. If I where you though I'd chop the bedsides and do a wrap around bumper. Since you mentioned wheeling it might as well get some protection. Add a set of sliders and some tires and you'll be good.   What kinda suspension you got up front?

I really wish I knew how to weld.

Torsion bar up front,
Is not going to be in the rocks so sliders aren't on my list

Welding is fun. I love doing it, especially oxy gas welding since I can lay down some amazing looking beads. When I use SMAW I lay down some nice welds too. MIG welding is a little finicky and ill show off my welds tomorrow with MIG because its what I do exhausts with since its brainless and holds decently.

Dude, I just bought the almost the same truck.  (The one I picked up is a 92 with a flawless body and approximately 500 miles on a new engine.  There probably is some minor electrical work in my future though.)
