Hey Yall. Been lurking for a while and thought I should go ahead and join. Had a couple of Toyotas thru the years but am currently working on my first build. A 1985 Toyota pickup. Thanks in advance for putting up with some newbie questions.

Hey Fred... welcome.

Is your 85  an 22R?

What do you have in mind for your project?

Yep. Its a 22r. It came with 4.88's and a locker of some sort in the front. Running 33-1250-15 tires. It has a 5 inch skyjacker with blocks on the back. I would like to replace that with a lower, better quality lift of some sort. The truck only has 84,000 miles on it. Will post some pics after my post count get high enough.

Hey Fred,

84,000 miles!! Wow... if that is actual mileage that is probably a rare truck!!

What kind of condition is it in?

You can go on imgur   https://imgur.com/oACTHTR   create an account, upload your photos, and then post the link in a PM to me.

I'd like to see some photos.

Thanks,

Gnarls.
