    Please check out the truck listed above. I need a truck for my lawn company here in Orlando. I think I want an old Toyota dually. Was the dually a factory option, or is it something people did. What’s your opinion of the 22RE motor? I probably will weld a ramp on the back of the truck to drive my mowers up on.

    Any info on this kind of truck would be appreciated. I am not familiar with old Toyota Pickups. New to Toyota in general.

    22R motor is one of the best engines ever made. It is gutless and wont pull anything, but it lasts FOREVER. The truck/frame will rot and break before that engine breaks down. However, I would'nt want a dump Toyota. Driving that would be like beating a dead horse.

    I owned one and you cannot kill the motor, but they are weak for towing. good for pulling a jet ski. not mowers and a dump bed.
