There is always the get off your dead butt and find out whats stopping you routine....but that might require actual physical labor of knocking down the sand wall you have pushed up behind each tire....

This thread is dangerously close to officially hijacked,

but man after watching that video ...

I hope my jeep buddy at work who constantly tells me what a heavy pig land cruisers are never sees that....even though its a driver problem ...

and those big 'look-at-me' stickers on the side of that thing don't help either

Most likely spent more on the decals than the tires.

Maybe it was in a Peterson's 4x4 magazine "worst stuck" or something. It might have been around 1989? My Mom would have had her FJ62 at that time and my sister would have had her CJ5 at that time.
Believe i've got that one...i'll see if i can find it

Default That's It!

Wow! This club is certainly amazing! The most esotaric questions I can come up with are solved with unusual rapidity!
First, Mike and the part number for the LAMP, INSPECTION, ASSY.
Now Ige and her personal library of 4x4 Toyota history!

That is exactly the picture I remember!
I'm going to go rear about it now!

THANKS IGE! MADE MY DAY!

PS. TOTALLY RADICAL! Yeah! I hope that kid's Foreign Jeep turned out so cool it was on the cover of Perterson's 4x4.
Foreign Jeeps....He must want a Jeep licensed and built by Mitsubishi http://www.film.queensu.ca/cj3B/World/JapanPhotos.html

I had no idea Mitsubishi made Jeep clones. Those are pretty cool.
