Best Vehicle We Have Ever Had — Original owner -- lived life in desert. No rust. Pulled all emissions junk ... carbed "22R" engine starts on auto choke ... original engine/exhaust/alternator ... added 3-row radiator for Phx living ... now lives full time in San Felipe, Baja. Had to change flywheel due to worn teeth (did clutch disc/pressure plate & throwout bear.) Replaced water pump ... 10 minute task (can almost do it with the engine running!) Added 31-inch BFG A/Ts ... so changed rear end "punkin" to match (forget the OEM ratio ... 4.9:1?). Beards "racing buckets". Blows cold air in 110F-115F ambient. Just repainted in Baja. Never wrecked. Bilsteins on all corners. PERFECT desert rig ... FabTech "glass" front fender; "Oultaw II" wheels ...

The Best 1980's Car I Had Ever Owned. — Purchased Vehicle back in 1986 brand new in Atlanta because I needed a small work vehicle with A/C. There was never anything wrong with it, Not one major repair. A very reliable vehicle inside and out. Vehicle was quite fun to drive. drove it for seventeen years with over 200,000 miles on the ODO. Sometimes I might see it driving down the street.

Needs more power, and more legroom.

The Yota Boat — I have pretty much a one of a kind truck, its a Standard Cab SR5 Turbo. Which according to the options list, doesn't exist :). It may be turbocharged but its still pretty pokey, livable but pokey. However its utterly bulletproof, I have already hydrolocked it crossing a river, bottomed it out more times then I can count and many other abuses and it hasnt suffered a bit. I am utterly shocked at how well this was built and I am very glad I went with it!

The Radest Truck Ever — Its ultra mega rad!!!!! Toyota builds the best trucks ever. they even work broken. I had a dead cylinder in my 22re drove it four thousand miles and it still ran fine. did not leak or burn oil it has not stranded me either.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

5 inches of lift riding on 35's

Cons

Gas mileage

My Truck — Over all the truck is great. I have done modifications to it but nothing to the engine besides a header. So with 35" tires and stock gears it doesnt really get faster than 70. But what can you expect from a 22R?
