Okay I don't think I've seen a post like this for some time....and it since it is toyota related I put it here.
I've had my 1980 truck for 10 years and I'll probably have it for at least another 10. Oh yeah, mine came SA from the factory.

I've had mine for around 7 months. I bought it 2 days after I sold my cruiser, and started modifying it 3 weeks later. This truck had belonged to my father, and it was the truck I first learned to four wheel in.

Its been awhile....like 2 months now! I still havent got it registered yet! But I am sold on how well a Toy works on rocks and how inexpensive they are to build. Hey Greg, do you have any pics of your truck? I'd like to see another Utah POR's ride! Heres mine. Its in the middle of the build up, of course.

I've had my '95 4Runner for almost 2 months now. I've already put 5,000 miles on it <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0">

Owned my '88 for about a year and a half. Bought an '82 parts truck just before that one.

I got my first Toyota, an '83, about 5 years ago.

my parents bought my toy in 88-89 for them as a work truck for dump and things.
since that time i got to flog it and my brother broke it.
so in 97 it was resurected from the 231 buick v6 hell to factory efi conversion.
was driving the badboy for the cost of a driveshaft mod, and paid the 'rents seven bills for it.
not bad to get an efi straight axle for $700 huh. and since then its been all up hill, over rocks, through the mud, and whatever else gets in the way.
