    I went to buy a motorcycle from a buddy and he GAVE me his old 1994 2wd toyota pickup to haul the bike home! It's a very basic 2wd 5 speed manual steering truck, in great shape with 138k, but now I am thinking about what to do with it. Should I do a SFA swap and make it a trail toy, do it pre runner style, or sell it?

    what about keeping it stock and DD'ing it? Those little 2wd toys get good mileage.

    I like the nekked co-eds idea (we'll need pictures though), but if you don't have an economical DD already, those 'Yotas are amazing, and reliable. If you do have a DD, and do have nekked co-eds beat it up, it'll make a good RTI ramp once all is said and done.

    Either a Jeep or a Toyota with a 22R will get you the same results. Score one for cheap, beat the snot out of it, then take it to the owner you just got it from complaining of a whining noise coming from the motor. Oh, the look on their face...

    I agree with the others. If you dont need it you can sell it. There are many folks looking for those trucks due to the price of gas. Honestly you can't beat them for the reliability and gas mileage. On the other hand The j**p took a decent beating though. Suprising. The one I had would drop the motor or trans prior to that. Then again it was a 2.8 and a 700r4.

    as much as i like nekkid coeds, i can't condone beating up a perfectly good vehicle. i say have them do the sfa swap for your. best of both worlds. or, just send it (and them :wink1: ) my way, and they can help me transpant the yota body onto my k5 frame. i'd keep the power and sure-footedness of the blazer, but have less weight and slightly better aerodynamics. i think i have enough duct tape to do the swap.

    Well right now it's sitting in the driveway burried under TWENTY ONE inches of snow that we got yesterday, with my new toy in the bed.

    A Kawasaki ZX-11 ninja.
    WHOOWEE!!! Can't wait until spring.

    The last one is today.
