I should at at this point that in addition to looking for a 16" rim for the spare tire on the pickup, I also was hoping to find the aircon / heater / fan boxes for the troopy, which I had stripped of its arcon to put it into the diesel pickup. I've been looking for several months now and even bought a set of boxes that I was told would work, but they didn't. So I always keep an eye out for a set to go back in the troopy. I -may- have finally gotten lucky with this poor old rust bucket:

It's hard to see it in the photo but this thing is so rusty that the entire front of the hood is jagged rusty metal, but it is a 1997 and my troopy is a 1995/1996 so I'm hoping it will fit. I need to spend some time with ToyoDIY and see. Does anyone happen to know when the 70 series transitioned--this has 6 bolt rims so that also was encouraging.
Its pretty darned rusty under there but I'm hopeful that does not mean the components inside the cab are rusty too.

That's if for now. I'm going to check the part numbers, but crossed-fingers I can get what I need from this truck
Man! If you can find an extra control panel like that, snag it for me!
You found a place in Musaffah I never even knew existed... sheesh. You're making me want to move back to Abu Dhabi. Ha!
