so I've been on the boards for a little while now and I've finally started doing work on my 1984 Toyota pick up xtra cab, besides just replacing tires with ones that will cover my truck in more mud!
when i got the truck it was all stock except for the cheap body stripe and the campershell and carpet kit. when i got it it was in perfect condition. the guy my parents bought it from used it to travel cross country and he babied it very well. at 16 years old i did not know how to drive a stick so my dad got to use it for about 3 months until i convinced my parents i could drive it. so i had my mom drive it to school and i followed her in her car and i tried to drive a manual by dumping the clutch and stabbing the gas!!!
needless to say that day was the first day i used 4wd for my first hill climb and it was the first time i wrecked the truck...since then its had 2 motors, 6 head gaskets 3 heads and numerous exhaust changes. but now I'm out of the screwing around stages(i doubt it) and I'm starting to transform my high school mud runner into a rock crawler. here are some pics of my truck...
first time flexing out with 4" of travel and a stripped out hub
i removed the bubble campershell, and slapped on some 31s
second campershell, hated it!
after rubicon with front lift and stock rear springs with no tcase gears and blowing up a welded rear 3rd
front and rear lift, 4.88s, 38s, wheel spacers, and it sits 25.5" from ground to frame
next on my to-do list is "real" locker in the rear, smaller tires, dual cases with tcase gears, exo cage, chromos and longs
