    I like the old toyotas. I have an 86' 4runner.. runs forever, and gets way better gas mileage then the k5. It also lets me use my blazer as more of a toy now...

    EDIT: I'm a moron who can't read.

    Looks good Steve, I'd love to drive one daily if I could fit in one comfortably.

    Screw a new bed, build it like this one: (club member)

    the bed is just the only thing thats badly rusted. The front fenders and tailgate are a little but rusted.

    No I'm sure it's IFS, 86+ they used IFS, in 85 they stopped.

    Its only had one owners, and it has 232,000KM on it.

    Nah man, the SFA was dropped after 85. All 4x4's up to, I believe, 95 came standard with locking hubs.

    I had an uncle with one of those that ran fo 400,000 miles with only a tranny replacement at around 275,000. The truck still ran, but finally rusted completely apart. I should do great as a dd. They are also fun on the trail. :waytogo:

    Wow , that is the cleanest Yota I have ever seen. They rust like anchors here. Most guys here run fibreglass quarter panels on them. Nice 4 runner.

    I had a 1980 Toyota for years here in AZ. No real rust to speak of luckily. Was the most dependable, yet gutless vehicle I have owned :p: Always had fresh fluid in it since it was always leaking. But ALWAYS got me from point A to point B. I had to get a bigger ride as the family grew. My daughter bawled her eyes out when I sold it. Have fun with it ! And the pics of the flat bed seem a good way to go.
