    New Toyhauler

    Finally bought a trailer last week. I have been wanting one for a couple of years, and finally found a pretty good deal on one. I am planning on putting either a pop up or a truck camper on the front. It just depends on what I find. It's heavy, but it pulls great with the cruiser on...

    LED FLASHERS For the 1000th time

    OK, I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. I have Led's at all four courners of the cruiser and they will not blink. I bought a different flasher (mechanical) that didn't help. Then I learned about resistors. I bought resistors and they still do not flash. I guess the resistors are not...

    Which tire 42" TSL or IROK

    I "THINK" I have decided on 42" tires for my rig. I wanted the 44's, but I need to get wider wheels, and I really do not like the 18.5" wide tire. What does everyone think. Mud, rocks, mud. I've heard bad things about both and good things about both. A $1300 investment needs a little...

    We have located a rough old cruiser to make into a 2 1/2 rockwelled monster. What do you think about all the running gear out of this truck in a cruiser. My neighbor is wanting something different, and we have found a cruiser, so I think I might have another cruiser in the neighborhood...

    ROTW JR'S Cruiser

    Ok, it's my turn. I've had this cruiser for about 17 years. I wanted a Toyota 4wd when I turned 16, but my dad knows how boys are. He talked me into getting a cheaper car, 1986 Toyota MR2, and buying a FJ40. He had always wanted one. He knew I would get out and tear up my truck and not...
