Anyone want my truck? :)


Its a 1985 Toyota Pickup, regular cab. I've built this thing from bone stock over the last 5 years, and it flat works. I've been on the all the hardest trails the Hammers, Moab, Montrose, have to offer. I can honestly say "I'm the guy that never breaks." It amazes me every time out, just how well it does.

It has

22re
stock G52 5-speed
Dana 60 front, ARB, 5.86 gears all 35 spline spicer, CTM flanges
Dana 61 rear, Welded, 5.86 gears, Moser 35 spline FF
Dual Marlin Crawler t-cases, 2.28 front, and 4.7 rear
42" Irocs, 80% tread on 17" MRW beadlock wheels
Warn 9.5 XP winch, synthetic line (needs replacing)
3 Link front with a panhard, 16" SAW 2.5 airshocks and SAW 4" air bumps
4 link rear, 16" SAW 2.0 airshocks

112" Wheelbase

I've tuned the shocks, there is very little body roll and I do not run sway bars.
This truck is used, its got lots of character (dents) and needs some TLC. I figured I would toss it up and see what happens. If I don't get any bites than I am going to clean it up with new fenders, new bedsides, etc and sell it in the spring.

What it needs:

timing chain - it rattles, it needs to be changed, but I drive it so rarely I haven't bothered

winch rope - could use a new one

rear air shock - I think it needs a new dust seal, has ever so slight a leak

t-cases - need to be re-sealed, its been sitting in the same spot for 4 months now, and there is about a 6 inch spot under it

steering - I run hydro assist, its slow at speed and has a seep out of the box, but in 5 years of running one tons, 42's, and the hardest trails I can find it works fantastic.

I am located in Lakewood, CO

I am asking 8000 OBO

I can vouch for the fact that it works, but I want you to keep it. What's next?

not sure yet...right now I make way too much money to be as broke as I am. I'm doing a little housecleaning/take a break/pay some stuff off and come back to it.

I'll build another, and I have better ideas of how I'd change it :)

You should keep the front & rear axles and part the rest out. It will cost you almost 4K just to buy then build another D60 for the front just like you have. Rears are easier to find but if it works and matches the front I would keep it.

Someone could pick up the rest from you, throw some Toyota axles under it and have a heck of a wheeling rig for very little money.

Jkimmel's truggy flat out works.

I've been in the passenger seat and we went down some ledges that made me feel physically ill. My truck would have been a gonner for sure dropping off that ledge, but this truggy is so well balanced that it drove right on out.

About 10 minutes later we were going way too fast on the whoops and were slamming from lip to lip. Sunglasses flew off, everything loose in the cab was airborn, but the truck was just fine. Sure the suspension is tuned more for crawling than pre-running, but everything is built so tough that you can step way outside the design and things hold together just fine.
