There was a thread on what happened awhile back but long story short, some lady nailed his rig while parked on the street if I remember correctly.

Krusty, do you have another rig in the works? Sorry I missed the thread if there is.

I just cut up my 4runner and took it to the recylcer. I was really hoping someone would buy it and re-incarnate the chassis and body, but it was just too beat. It sucks

the windshield is cracked--- where a chunk of firewood hit it- 2nd Roxx Bash !!!!

the hood and 'lift off doors' and .5 doors might go on the new one, -- just cause it is 'origional'--- but everything worth a hoot was pulled--
the cab has a few dings where it was laid over a couple times---and there are a few brushes with the 'can-opener' rocks----

just wonder how well the bars will hold up to the crusher ???

the engine/trans/front axle assy took @ 10 min to pull !! the engine will go in the storage area with the other two--- 22R tired but OK, 22R with 20 head and on board compressor, 22RET (Robs)-

had thought about saveing the tailgate-- just for the Bender stickers and especally the "Krusty's U-Haul" sticker Camo had made YEARS ago !!

but it is time to look toward the future--- afterall, the first 68 years have been good (for the most part)----
