You might not believe me, but that old truck drives like it's on rails. The 60 feels more like steering from the crow's nest of an old Spanish Galleon. Both ride stiff but I see it that it helps me drive better and pick better lines. The 60 gets better traction but the truck crawls slower with factory 4.35's. both share the same wheels and knuckles and ignition and each came with a rubber boot on the dissy cap. Both have been to the rescue of many dodges, Jeeps, Chevys and Fords. Neither have ever needed rescued.
My granddad fought in the Pacific but when he saw how well Toyota 4wds were made, he replaced his CJ5 with one.
Amen to pulling out jeeps and dodges…..
Guy flew into a field, big Rams fitted with winches and lifts, and a couple Chevys couldn’t get to him.
Me (a 17 year old) shows up with a 93’ Toyota, and I wheeled right to him, and yanked him all the way out, then proceeded to pull out the other big dodge equipped with a winch who was originally called to save him.
There is more to the story that I don’t want to get into, however I did get a lot of respect that day from the big guys. Never judge a book by it’s cover.
Also, my pickup came factory with 4:56 gears, and I love it, the gearing is great off road- wish my cruiser had the same ratio.
