following, sweet truck!
What's next on the list ?
Hi, Thanks!
Been away from Mud, busy getting my 84 pickup back on the road for some wheeling trips.

No real major mods completed yet. Busy sourcing parts and planning what to buy.
Ordered a set of Yokohama Geolander G003 MTs in 255/85R16 - they're getting hard to get hands on in Canada currently. Non-split steel rims ordered from ENS Toyota for the new tires. Next on the list is gathering a lift kit- probably go with OME.

Hi,
Welcome to Mud! No, you really can'tgo wrong with a 79. There seems to be less of them hitting the auctions lately and I don't think many exist past 2005 build year.
I had a friend who uses AA Japan, so I went with them (great experience all around) others have used B-Pro out of Alberta. I used B-Pro's auction credentials (he shares them on his website) to look at the stock that was hitting the upcoming auctions. Good luck with the search!

Made some decent progress on the conversion, so an update with pictures is coming soon.

Every day im seeing 70s running around here. Looking forward to youre update. Cheers
