Drop a 40 body on it, and you got a Toyota! (as much as many, anyway...)

Title is on the frame...not the body! A 40 body on a Jeep frame would be a Jeep. Scary part is a Jeep body on a 40 frame would be a.....I can't say it..... :o

maybe if you put a mini truck body on it, but my v8 40 still has a a cruiser frame which is a hell of a lot more stout than a jeep. and driveshafts...no comparison there. jeep parts might be closer to you rig than mine, bill.

btw kev...there's a dude back east that put a modified cj7 body on a cruiser frame. said he got the best of both worlds..a stout drivetrain and readily available body parts.

Unfamiliarity with 4Runner frames is to be expected, I suppose.

I was referencing many of the built rigs that show up at CM sporting an FJ grille and steering wheel and little else.

I've seen lotsa rigs with car bodies on 4wd chassis but that doesn't mean it's a good thing! :eek: :brick:

But they have the soul of a Cruiser and the recognition of DOT. Ever notice a tubed and linked Cruiser is still a Cruiser but a tubed and linked mini-truck becomes a Truggy?

You can polish a turd as much as you want but it's still a turd! :rolleyes:

Nevertheless, I don't find a cruiser to be stinky. So go ahead and polish!
