I visited a mine out in Nevada a couple of weeks ago and thought I would share some pictures of the Toyotas out there with you! You can only run diesel equipment underground. These Tacomas are specialty built as mining vehicles with Cummins motors, solid axles etc. Enjoy!

If I didn't know any better (and I don't) those rears look like Diamond axles... and are they running the 4BT engines? Can't imagine an I-6 in a Taco...

Yeah, diamonds front and rear. 4BT engines I assume... They are 4 cylinders.

Yeah, after so many years of use, they send them to an auction and are sold as "offroad use vehicles" since they are not road legal.

Yeah... those are just slightly cool. :cool: :cool: :cool: What axle shafts do you (anyone) think are in there, since they're 5-lugs and all that?
