This is a very familiar looking rig...
Toyota : Other Trekker for sale
Sale price: $6,495.00
Very rare 1982 Toyota Trekker in good condition and nicely built for expeditioning or hard core rock crawling. or just a daily driver/weekend...
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...
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.
A water tank would be nice... 10 gallons with the mass low and not taking up space in the...
It's got the best of everything available that year... 1985 = solid front axle, super clean 28-32mpg diesel, pluse a wildernest. It should definitely sell for a premium price.
$16.5K is much more than I would pay for it, I think you could get a Tacoma w/wildernest for a comparable price or...
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.
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...
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...
Ha ha, mine also. I haven't yet told her that I'm planning on winning the white FJ40 beaut later this month.. when/if it happens, she'll find out when she gets home from work and it's sitting in the driveway. I've been sworn to not buy another car, but winning technically isn't buying. ;-P
It sounds like you got the smaller ones, 199mm S13WE vs 231mm 13WL. Those seem to be the best bet to ensure rim clearance and still have still loads of cool braking for the Taco.
I found a thread somewhere with images of the two caliper's differences and brake line 'banjo' thing that needs to...
Do you know which calipers you went with?
How do you like this setup?
I think I need to replace a caliper, so I'm thinking about installing Tundra discs/calipers. My only concerns are the hose fittings and clearance of my rims (16" 5 star).
How do they know that is a Toyota? It looks very different than the 2015 Hilux. The only thing that looks similar to me is the taillights which are heavily masked and might be an illusion.
