Throttle-boys '83 Toyota
« on: Apr 09, 2008, 01:07:48 PM »

Hi Throttle-boy here from Sunny South Africa  :wave: Just joined the forum and also just figured out how to post pics  :clap2:
This is what happens just before the sh*t hits the fan  :sheerterror:

This is my old faithful No.7 '83 Toyota Hilux. Im running a 4.3 litre fuel injected V6 Chevy, 5 speed tranny with twin stick
and Marlin Crawler, the load bed has been bobbed, 4-link rear suspension with miller lock rear diff, front diff runs a richmond locker
with 30 spline longfields. I have 36 x 12.5 x 15 simex centipedes on 10 inch bead lock rims. There's a 4-point internal cage and
a full exo-skeleton around the cab. Everything on this rig is self fabricated  :flamer: 'Build it, hammer it, break it, fix it ... repeat!'
  :driving: Happy Wheeling ...
