A customer showed up with this SA-WEEET live-axled Toyota motor home. Have you ever wanted to build and wheel something like this before?

You could wheel all day and them cook and sleep in comfort!

I would sleep in it on the trail but I probably wouldn't do any real wheeling in it. Trails would get small real fast with that much back end...
I would rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on earth.

I think it would be cool for an expeditonary vehicle, but might run into high cog issuues rock crawling

People complain about 4runners being top heavy, can't imagine this.

  • Dean Tyler, you were an inspiration to all!!

I would rock some of the Fire Breaks around here with that.  I wouldn't try any off camber stuff, or you'd be on your side.  But I wouldn't be afraid to take it off-road.  It would need some gears and a doubler.

I saw a pretty sweet first gen here in town a couple years ago.  And it looked like it had a 4" lift and 33"s.   

33"s would be a pretty sweet setup on those.  Cause BFG does the 33x9.50-15 and a 33x12.50-15.  Run the wider one on front, and dual up the 9.50's on the rear. 


And Mike, I spy some Oregon Salmon plates on that rig.  What part of Oregon was he from?

Thought about a Sunraider, they are light and short, also the popup Chinooks would be nice but you'd still have some big limits on where you could take one.

Hahaha imagine what an exo cage would look like on that.
May Bobby Long be forever immortalized in his work and deeds to the Toyota 4x4 community. Because of a select few including this wonderful man, none of us have to drive Jeeps. He will be missed.
