Best Truck I've Ever Had, And Is Super Capable In Snow, Mud, And Rocks. — My 2nd truck, first foreign vehicle. But it has an american heart- a chevy 350. Best v8 ever made by GM. This truck can sit and roast the 33 inch mudders all day. Its a beast in the mud and a babe magnet-haha. Body has been restored, and no rust on it. The 350 is backed by a 350 turbo tranny. Dual pipes give a roar, and doesnt let the onlookers be fooled whats under the hood. My trucks my girlfriend pretty much.

Pros

Solid front axel, great place to build from since there isnt anything that been cobeled together to mess with

Cons

No engine or transmission means finding a wreck with them. rusted out bed and shitty paint job means this build needs new paint!

Once A Nice Truck! — 1985 with the solid front axel and strong rear axel. No engine or transmission as of now. Bought it for 200 bucks in hopes of stripping it out for a 1981 with no transmisson, front end, or rear end, but I like the Extra Cab and just bought a wrecked 4runner for 100 bucks with the running gears I need. Im excited. its got a 3 inch Super Lift and thats about it. OH it has a lot of body rust on the bed, too.

light and manuverable

Cons

needs more power

'85 Toyota Pickup Sr5 — handles good, slow acceleration, built very strong, tailgate rattles after awhile, they all start to rust out at the seams on the side of the bed. Maintenance is not too bad if you know how to do the work yourself, some parts sre hard to find, but most are available from your local parts store. Fun to drive if set up right.

Pros

They do run a long time as long as you take care of them

Cons

they cost a lot to repair them and it's hard to find parts for them

35

Good And Dependable But Expensive — Awsome 4x4 pickup will go through just about anything and it has been through hell and back and is still running. the only thing about toyotas is they run forever but if they do happen to break down they cost a fortune.

Frickin amazing

Cons

none

35

Frickin Amazong — as it is it (stock) will out wheel a built jeep, great on mileage, not pretty but who cares about looks any way, they are relativley cheap, they come with a solid front axle, 4:11 gearing, they are like tanks when it comes to snow wheeling it will go any where especially if it has tire chains,

Can go anywhere

if you can't handle it

Always Comes Through — great for fun, it was born out in the dunes, even pulled out a couple of full size trucks out of the sand. more than enough power for how much it weighs. hate if you want, its more capable than your lifted chevy, nuff said.
