    I agree. However, I am going to try and keep the bed on the truck instead of a truggy style.

    Good luck, you remember what the bed on my Taco looked like right? Granted your driving style is slightly different than mine.

    Harlan will be the trip that "Golden horseshoe" disappears. I'm packing helmets so he can go full "send" on some of the obstacles. Yard sale or not, it will be worth watching haha.

    I like the fact that you want to keep the bed!!! You should build it similar to the 1973 Hilux that was in the 2012 Ultimate Adventure, low COG and 37s!
    131 1211 04+trail Proven Wheelers+1973 Toyota Hilux - Photo 39556493 - The Rigs Of Ultimate Adventure 2012

    Did you see the first gen Yota Mike Morrison had? About your truck's twin but rollcage, sliders, bobbed long bed, 35s (maybe 37s, it's been a while), and dual cases. Was the first long bed bobbed first gen I've seen, very cool little truck! The PO had built the rollcage tight enough to the walls and roof of the interior that even someone my size could fit in it.

    It's another flatbed but, you've seen Chris Cole's first gen Yota, right? It's nicely setup as well!

    Thanks for the link! I definitely like the low cog!

    I did not ever see Mike’s yota and I have not seen Chris Cole’s either. Sorry, I don’t wonder around on the forum much. I usually just stick to the CTB member area, and the occasional visit to the NSFW thread....you can’t ever go wrong with boobs!!! Haha

    Hahahaha! I don’t have pics of Chris’s boobs, and I don’t have any progress pics of the trail rig.... but since we are talking Toyota in this thread, I can post up some pics of the 22re I built for my daily driver. Now that this is done maybe I can start tearing down the trail rig.

    It ought to, but I have a noise in it that I don’t like...I’ll have to get that figured out before it starts making the Greensboro run again.

    Looks like you've been hard at work.
    Did you find out what that noise was in the engine you rebuilt?

    That’s a fact! Wendy and lainey are in NYC. Natalie is camping with the inlaws....I’m home alone...since last night at 7:00 I’ve installed the engine in the daily driver, tested it for a couple hours (it’s good this time), got the black sheep ready to pull the cab, mowed the yard, drank beer, took a nap, and I’m in the process of drinking more beer! I miss my girls, but when it’s just me and Corona we get stuff done!!!!

    It was piston slap on #1 cylinder. Turns out it was a casting flaw with the piston. Once I got the engine back out and tore down and started measuring piston to bore clearances, I found #1 piston skirt was .007” smaller than it was when installed. Crazy. When the piston was exposed to heat and pressure the skirt collapsed. LC engineering was really great to deal with, they sent me 4 new pistons and a head set. But it still cost me a lot of time.

    Me too! I love the character of the truck. I plan on keeping the body as stock as possible and keeping the bed intact, just bobbing it.
