Exclamation Ka24e NA build

Hello, I own a 1993 ka24e automatic rwd reg cab Hardbody.
I'm also looking at a 1997 ka24e manual 4x4 reg cab. With a blown head gasket.
I'm looking to beef up my current engine (93) and restore my hardbody. My truck was given to me by my dad a while back before getting cancer. He bought it back in 93 and we've had it ever since. I'd like to rebuild it and take him on a ride. If anyone has a good build plan and would like to share, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you

I cannot supply you with a plan, but I will show you where mine was at its worse. I can tell you that before starting this project, I had not bought from the internet. With a little searching, I have sourced a ton of parts. This forum is a great place for questions and help. Welcome

You need to decide how far you want to go into the rebuild. Body on or body off restoration, just a repair of cancer, or just an engine rebuild or head gasket repair.

then you can make your plan.

Which ever way you go, LABEL YOUR PARTS, BOLTS, CONNECTORS, AND TAKE PICTURES!!!!

My current truck (the 93) is in great condition. It's just old and the frame is rusted. I would like to pull the engine and beef it up a bit without a turbo. Currently looking for a shop to repair ths rust damage on the frame. Any upgrade suggestions and/or restoration advice is appreciated, thank you. Nice trucks! I might get an ext. Cab next for the extra space
