I think it's a stretched 25 with a custom hardtop and doors. Sticker on the door says "tours" which leads me to believe the stretch part. No way toyota made a top like that.

That's about the only legal way to do it. You could buy an 80 with a title and good frame for next to nothing, then go buy your brand new 70 and dismantle it. Ship in three parts all at very...

I like it.
Have you thought about offsetting the middle pole so that the stack will nest a few inches lower when folded? I was planning on modifying my tent to do that and burning my existing...

If you can hold tight, you may want to wait a bit if you plan to order an Engel. They have come out with new models that have digital readouts and battery monitors (as well as interior lights)...

Toyota would have to put that motor in Tacoma, Tundra, 4 runner, FJC, etc. before they got enough volume potential to pull it off. If they just put it in the 70, it would be a losing deal. Should...

They all have front airbags now, but I don't believe they have the curtains. I "think" it would be easy enough to add seats that have side air bags, but I doubt they would ever modify the pillars to...

A GX is 715lbs less than the 100. That's not insignificant when you are going up the mtns. The last GX I drove absolutely felt like a rocket compared to the 80. I know there are people that will...

Wow! I bought a new one from Toyota in 07 for maybe $75-80. That's an insane price jump for a flat piece of glass.
The case to retire the 40 from daily driving is growing larger year by year.

Well, this never occurred to me before, but could be a lame buy tactic, as flagging can be used to make sure you "get" an item for sale before anyone else.

That CJ looks the size of a Razor. No wonder they were capable, that's just a tad bigger than a riding mower. ;)

I've seen one or two go over 300k, but I personally wouldn't take that risk. Rebuilding a v8 is cost prohibitive. It would be interesting to do a compression test on one with that many miles and...
