Gnarly4x, I can't quote the picture but that first picture you have posted is awesome I'm guessing that's circa 1986?
The photo was taken in 1992-93. The truck was my first 1986 Longbed, 22RE, automatic, Doug Thorley header, 2" free-flow exhaust.
That was an incredible truck! I 4-wheeled it all over California, Arizona, and Mexico.
The 2NARLY truck is my current 1986 XtraCab SR5, 22RE, 5-speed, I just rebuilt the engine.
That photo was taken in 2006 right after I bought it. It is in incredibly nice condition.
