U.S. Army Private Thomas Love got a great holiday surprise Monday morning.

His dad, Tom Love Sr., had asked friends to show their appreciation by fixing up his old, beat up Toyota 4Runner.

Love was reunited with his not-so-new-but-improved truck live on FOX40 News at Street Tech Auto Repair in Orangevale.

The fixes included a 4-inch lift kit, new tires and wheels, a new bumper, winch, clutch, breaks and some more body work.

Many of the parts and supplies were donated.
