Picked it up last night. Doesn't start and looks a little worse than when I had it 4 years ago but I'm glad to have it back and it looks like all the good parts are still on it.

Oh snap! So....I gotta ask what the plans are for it now that you have the buggy too?

No offense meant but I think you have playtoy ADHD. :D

Yea i probably need some meds. Saw it on craigslist couldn't say no.
The buggy is v8 on 39.5's low and wide at 84 inches so I was gathering parts to build another Toyota anyway so I could have the choice of taking something smaller. Might take it out a few times like it is but really want to ditch the body and go tube on frame not like a f-toy but more southeast style like a mini bouncer.
I like the style of this one.

Definitely planning to keep both of them.

Well jumped the starter and it spun but didn't turn the crank. So I pulled the starter and was able to turn the flywheel without the crank turning, not good. I'll probably pull the engine out to see what's wrong, could have broken bolts or flywheel.

Awesome pictures! Glad you're part of the Toyota community again!

I remember Nate taking out that glass too. On the trail leaving the parking lot about half way to the tracks there's a "hole" and he was giving her hell to get out and well...a tree got in his way and he wasn't going to let that stop him!

That was a good run for sure!

I couldn't figure out what tires were on my truck...but then I remembered they were borrowed mud terrain! When I reinstalled my tires again the lugnuts weren't torqued down and I lost a wheel the next day, lol.
