    230,000 miles on this thing, thats low for an 86 yota. Gonna put a solid axle under the front and then beat the heck outta it. Its not really a mud truck I'm gonna build it for the rocks and trails. I got some 38.5" boggers for it on yoyo wheels we'll se how well they perform. I'll update this thread as I build it, so stay tuned!

    I'm just using stock axles, I'll probably start breaking shafts, but the toy axles are strong and I will upgrade to chromoly once I do break. I wanna go with a 4" lift and trim the fenders heavily/bob the rear.

    That's a cool little truck. I love those things for off roading. Good luck with it and I look forward to seeing updates.

    my uncles 92 yota hit 285000 the other day that truck goes anywhere you point it. in my opinion you cant beat a yota. our 03 tundra is the same way I think Ill definately get some miles out of it as well. its only got 76000 miles on it 0 problems though!! I cant wait to see those 38's on it!!

    Watch that Tundra automatic transmission... the higher mile models can have issues. I think the 04 Tundra has the improved transmission.
