    That being said, I'm speaking of a 1980 Chevy C-10 and a 1985 Toyota 4x4. I currently own the Yota along with my DD K5, but there is a guy who wants to trade me a 2wd pickup for it. OK, now here's where I'm asking what you would do. The yota will crank and run as it sits now, the pickup will need a carb and battery before I could even think about it. Yota is a straight axle and has a small lift and tires and wheels. Truck would probably need tires since it hasn't moved in awhile. However, I have some Killer Lexus seats that would be sharp as hell in the truck and a small block that I can get for cheap from a buddy of mine that would be pretty sweet in there. Rust is about the same in both trucks. The Chevy was a 3 speed on the tree and has been converted to a floor shift that half ass works, so I'm thinking a good canidate for a 4 speed and a gear to complement that small block. Yota could be another play toy when the K5 is down for mods or atleast it would probably be the best fuel mileage getter that I own since it's going to sky rocket this summer. Anyway, I'm stuck and can't make a decision so which would you pick. :bow:

    i think i'd pick the yota, 85 4x4 is the best year and are hard to comeby.

    How are you even considerin this... An 85 yota will NEVER lose its value, you could sell the stock axles for more than the C10:eek1:

    And the yota is a capable offroader with good gas mileage.

    Another for for the Toyota. I would never trade it for something as common as an old C10... Chevys are dime a dozen almost.
