    1987 toyota 4x4 22RE

    I think that nearly all Toyota of this vintage leak at the power steering box, just enough to keep them wet and it never gets worse. I had an 88 4Runner that was like that for almost 10 years and it never worsened not really consumed a lot of fluid. That is a really high price for a 4Runner...

    Old Spare Tire Space, what should I use it for?

    Fuel tank if you need the extended range. Scott Brady's install in his Tacoma was pretty clean. I personally dislike filling with gas cans. http://www.expeditionswest.com/equipment/tacoma/fuel_tank.html A water tank would be nice... 10 gallons with the mass low and not taking up space in the...

    '85 Longbed/Wildernest diesel CL find.

    BBC story on Toyota trucks

    The author doesn't really know Toyotas very well. The Hilux and Tacoma are two completely different vehicles in design, engine, and specifications other than having 4 wheels. Interesting article otherwise.

    Seattle to the Darien Gap in a sub $5,000 Toyota - What would you buy?

    IMHO, I'd go with a 90 - 95 4Runner 4 cylinder 4WD. I think they are cheaper than the 3rd gen and probably 1st gens also, the premium price for a removeable top wouldn't be worth it not to mention that the 4doors would be nice at times. 22REs are very reliable mechanical/electric and parts are...

    Who makes the very best white gas stoves and lanterns?

    Wow, my Google-Fu must have been weak when I went searching for the part. Thanks!

    Who makes the very best white gas stoves and lanterns?

    I've picked up 4 stoves and two lanterns at thrift stores the last few years, only one stove had problems with the fuel having turned to varnish. I've no idea how old it is, but it could have been 30 years old. I think that it might be wise to store a stove/lantern full so as to leave as...
