I kind of knew that was going to be the answer but had to throw my $0.02 into the conversation.
Great to hear that the black truck has begun. Do you have a build thread?

Have to agree with you on the exo, but kinda like the simplicity of the f-toy chassis. However, in the interest of getting out on the trails next spring, really just want to keep it a truck...

Was thinking about trying to minimize fab time and just slam a 4x innovations cage in the new cab. Prob tie the cage to the cab with a shitload of dimple plates. Actually going to call them tomorrow to see if theyíll make one a tiny bigger to fit a cab with no interior...

So.... found an interesting 87 for sale, appears to be very original in pics, but wasnít aware they made a carbureted version thought everything 86 and after was injected. What am I missing here? Supposed to get a VIN shortly so I can check it out more...

Going to look at it tomorrow, weíll see...

Iíve seen those too, but this one is a 4x4

No bigger / better build to this one. Just a new body, cage and get it back out on the trail by next summer...hopefully...

On a side note, whoís fiberglass fenders did you use on your red 4runner? Thinking about going that route myself and just starting to research options. Yours look good, but were you happy with the fit & finish? Or not so much...

We found a nice 1 owner CA truck. Will post more pics once we preform the sacrifice and parts start flying off. Lots of parts available if anyone needs anything. 22RE, W56, RF1A all available, plus lots of nice interior panels too. Iíll post a more detailed add in the for sale section later...


Never had one that came with the original manual before...

Actually opened it up on the way home to figure out how to use the cruise control. Never had that on one before either...

You are in the bay right? I might grab some things. I could use nicer seat belts, and maybe some other junk.

Send me a PM with email or cell# and I’ll get you some pics of whatever parts you want....

I’ll do a post later in the for sale section with pics of everything we’re letting go...

Oops, almost forgot...yep, we’re in San Jose CA.

Damn, so sorry to see this. Was a real clean build with some great handiwork on your part. Glad nobody was hurt and hope you're back out there tearing it up soon.

Thanks man. Weíre moving right along on the body swap. The cleaning seems to take forever, or at least feels that way...

Couple pics of the dry ice trick we found online for removing factory deadening. It actually works incredibly well....

Couldn't tell you who makes the sliding window, it's an 88 cab if that helps. I'll see if there's a tag on it. I'm not crazy about exos either but given my driving record and not wanting to ever swap a cab out again I felt it was necessary. Sometimes I just want to cut it off and go for it. I did put it on its side last weekend with basically no damage soo there's that..
