    FJ Cruiser or Tacoma for Touring

    I own an '07 MT FJ w/ locker & 33s, as well as a Dodge 2500 quad-cab on 35s, and one of my wheeling buddies runs a 2nd gen Taco (factory locker, 33s, icon suspension, sliders, bumper, but not much in camping mods). Full disclosure, I'm biased against Tacos, although I am a Toyota fan, in...

    Help, Talk me out of it.

    This is me to a "T;" I haven't really liked any of the Toyota pickups since they rolled out the Tacoma platform back in '95. They just don't feel the same as the '94 regular cab, manual-everything, Toyota pickup I started 4wheeling in. I have an FJ Cruiser now and like that a lot; it's pretty...

    Flatbed questions -Ram 2500 ccsb

    I own a very similar truck ('03 4x4 Ram QCSB 2500 w/Cummins) and have often though about doing a flatbed with eventual camper. I'm curious to hear what the peanut gallery has to say about such an arrangement.

    GatorDoc’s 3rd gen Cummins Dodge

    So I did a thing... More to come, but the Dodge is likely going to be up for sale soon. She's been a great truck, but it's time for something that suits my current needs a little better.

    Anyone Regreting downsizing?

    Thanks for all the helpful feedback, everyone. Sorry for the tardy response; apparently I need to be more diligent in following up on threads and comments. Yes, I know how to; I'm just bad at it. In any case, I am following everyone's advice, generally speaking, and taking the purge slow in...

    Atl-atl's Dodge Ram 2500 Regular Cab Long Bed "documentation" thread.

    Those appear to be OEM H2 rims. On 2nd gen rams, with the Dana axles, I believe they fit without modification. On 3rd gens, with the AAM axle, I believe the center hole for the hub needs to be opened up in order to fit. I may have the two mixed up, though, so don't take my word as gospel...

    Anyone Regreting downsizing?

    I'm not 100% sure this is the right sub-forum for this, but since kids are relevant, and this is family adventure planning, here goes. I feel my mindset and philosophy on life shifting to a more simplified, minimalist view. We (the wife and I) decided last year to prioritize experiences over...

    ARZ's 86 4Runner

    Tie downs are factory, my old '88 had the same ones. The bit they're bolted to is the top of the rear body mount. Never did figure out what the sheet metal flange is for, but I'm guessing it's for strengthening the mount. I don't know if the threaded bungs on the roll bar are specifically for...

    Summitbeerowl's 93 Toyota Truck Build

    I'm no help on the muffler, but I'm diggin' the truck! My first 4x4 was a '94 reg cab, so I have a soft spot for these pre-Tacoma pickups. Keep up the good work!

    3rd Gen 22re Pickup. TAT and TET slow budget build.

    Man, reading through this thread is bringing back memories! My first 4x4 was a '94 regular cab Toyota Pickup; manual everything and absolutely perfect that way. Mine was green and had the 3.slow, but had exactly the same cheesy side graphics and '90s roll bar that yours does. It's still my...

    Starting a camper shell project

    I picked up a similar ARE shell for my truck late last summer, though mine doesn't have the side storage/doors. Subscribed to see where you go with this!

    Chevy Express Lift or 4x4 Options

    Check out the camper vans sub-foum: http://www.expeditionportal.com/forum/forums/58-4wd-(and-2WD)-Camper-Vans There's a wealth of info there, and you'll probably get better response than this sub. Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk

    Need help: Is this 1988 4 Runner worth $12k

    TL;DR: No, it's not worth $12k. As mentioned above, probably a car lot on a fishing expedition for a fool and his money. I haven't followed the used market lately, but at $6-$8k it might be worth considering if it's in extremely good condition with recent in-depth services and a long...

    My M101A2 build in progress

    Looks like an ARE commercial topper. I've got one on my Dodge with the same barn doors, they're great. Nice job on the trailer! Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk
