New guy currently deployed to Afghanistan
« on: Aug 13, 2010, 07:26:37 AM »
Hello all,

Just posting a "hello" thread from overseas.  I'm a lurking member of Yotatech and Expedition Portal forums, however, I finally made my way over to these forums after hearing it was a great place to learn about engine swaps. 

So, what do I drive?  I have an '89 4Runner 22RE, 5spd DeLuxe.  It is in extremely rough condition, however, it was a steal at $1500.  It is completely stock and worn out.  Initial prospects are to install an Aussie locker (or similar) and refresh the suspension (OME possibly).  Swapping in a different engine may be a possibility as well since the little 22RE is a bit anemic nowadays.  I would post photos, however, I do not have any on this computer as I am currently deployed to Afghanistan. 

Well, just wanted to say a quick hello and introduce me and my truck.  Look forward to learning from all of you old-timers on the boards here.

regards,
Joel
regards,
Joel

Thanks!  I just realized that there is an actual "new members" forum...derrr   :hammerhead:.  So, I guess if a moderator wants to move this to that section then that would be much appreciated. 

regards,
Joel

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone and thank you for the support.

79coyotefrg, will do on the b-day info.  Thanks for merging the two threads.

I can't wait to get back and work on the rig and get out in the mountains again.
