    <--- '95 YJ Sahara, 1.5" lift, 31" tires.

    Not so much rock-crawling though... more of a general off-road fun machine... the suspension isn't really set up for hard-core rock-crawling.

    This is my pile of parts

    85 Toyota Ho-Runner. It is pretty heavily built compared to the average 4x4 but isnt anywhere near what I want for the finished deal.

    Occasionally.

    I had to winch out as I had broken a shaft and this was a "quick trip, we won't do anything wild." Right before this shot I almost rolled it on the drop off. I would have been fun, but I was headed home in a few hours and didn't want the hour long recovery.

    another random shot

    Thank you! It doesn't look like much, but it's pretty unique.

    Man, i miss my ol' 85 toyota now. What ya got in it? Stock 22R? or you do stuff to it? In the long run... I ended up putting a Chevy 4.3 liter vortec in place of my 22R.

    Now i just have a Tacoma. Ive seen some sweet rigs over in East Oklahoma. Makes me want to get back into the sport. :thumbsup:

    Oh, i like the International too. What year is that Diesel Mr. Diesel Scout?

    The rig pictured above isn't my Diesel. My Diesel is a 1980 Scout II Traveler, one of the last made. It's mostly stock, with the Turbo version of the SD33T, T-19 close and the Scout dana 300.

    The rig pictured above is powered by an International 196 with GM fuel injection, backed by a 727 and a Jeep Dana 300. Oh and there are Ford Parts in the distributor, so we've got all of the big three covered!:thumbsup: :shocked:

    My rig is still just the ol' 22RE.

    It is fuel injected with 280,000 miles on it and still starts and runs with no problems.

    I do have dual transfer cases and 5.29 gears in the axles so that makes a HUGE difference in its capability.

    We wheel mainly in Disney, Oklahoma. I am actually gonna be there next weekend.

    That's a sweet ass Runner. My '86 is bone stock except for 31" TrXus MT's on Taco rims, but it's the daily driver. Needs a clutch and probably a tranny, and a timing chain wouldn't hurt (245K mile 22RE) before I would want to take it out wheeling. Hopefully next summer though!

    Sounds like a sweet rig. I need a blender, that would be kick arse back at the camp ground.

    When you get stuck or break an axle its usually in the worst possible spots.
