I was out playing around with my '86 yard beater when I found some really soft ground. The old Yota then proceeded to try and find it's way to China. Now, this is pretty typical in New England with the spring thaw & mud but there are two embarrasing things about this deal.

1) I got stuck in my own backyard

2) My wife had to pull me out with her Nissan Frontier

I should have took some pics of it stuck, it sank down to the IFS and plow frame, but it was such a PITA to get it out I didn't think about it. I attached a pic of my beater I took after getting it out of the mud yesterday.

'86 Yota Xtra cab, all stock, 3" BL and flatbed.

sorry!

sorry to say it but it dosent look like you could fit 33" tires on that. i have
33x12.50r15 super swampers TSL's on my 79 and i have a 3" body lift and a
4" susp. lift, i probly could go bigger but why? around here i would rather have a shorter tire so i can fit in the trees better. trails around here are very tight. but put the swampers back on and tear it up!!

You have too much lift for those tires. i had an 80 with 4in susp. and 33s with tons of room only rubbed on the frame in back. alls you really want is a thin tire.



Sorry for the hijack.

:D

The 33's fit on there OK, actually. ( their on some old aluminum 7-1/2" wide rims) I think the torsion bars are cranked alittle too. The tires are kinda tight and rub the firewall when flexed a bit. It's definately not the ultimate off-roader but it does the trick around the yard and going to the dump on weekends.

and also

yea i have been thinking about going with 35" but i dont know the 33"s seem to be working great for now for what i do around here. ill try to post some pics soon so you can see my rig. thanks for the company around here everyone seems to think if it is not american it is not a truck so it is nice to get to talk to people that see it the way that i do, and i am not saying that american trucks are bad. shit i have a chev 305 in my truck but toyota size is the way to go i think.
