I'm not sure if we've done this yet and if not it's high time we do. I love reading the build threads and even have one of my own to edit up pretty quick..
There's something to be said for just admiring pictures, nice large format pictures to just show friends who we all are and give each other inspiration.

Let's keep it simple, post your current pic of your Toyota and a link to your build thread. :popcorn:

Next adds: 4 air steps, sliders, roof rack, window screens, blower, snorkle.

*Stinkin LC owners! [takes his 4Runner off to a side corner in shame of the other kids posessions] ;p

Steve, you guys have another rig now and are prepping for a new one if I read that right?
I might just have to lurk your posts to see what that's all about.

Jodo (sorry don't know your real name)..how about a build-up link or picture set??

FWIW anyone scrolling this thread the PMC SwapMeet's next month up here in Sunny Nor-Cal, it would be nice to see some peers show up with their rides. :idea:

**EDIT-Everyone, try to watch your written line replies, cut them down so they don't scroll off the right side b/c of the large format pics. Thanks!

:lol: For the uniniated this is known as a "Frame Flush"..it helps get all the spiders/critters out of your frame and beautifies the rig w/ the nutrients from the mud bath. :hillbilly:

sorry for the large pic, if there is way to set sizes on the bbl code, I'll do it!

don't hide the frunner. the (3rd?) gen 4runner, before the new body style, is one of my favorite trucks around. I've had my eye on one for years. Great rig. Not as "take all comers" as a Land Cruiser, but better mileage (usually) and a little slimmer make it more appropriate for a lot of expeditions.

*No need to cut down the pic sizes, just clip the written stuff so it reads easier.
^IE: I hit [enter] after saying "easier." to drop this line down.

**2nd Gen 4Runner, 1995, late release and not (for my production date)
supposed to have even been done. P/O had a little pull w/ Toyota and special ordered it. :D

Damn fine looking rig Jodo:cheers:. I know this is the "picture only" thread. Do you have more info & pictures on your truck somewhere?

Thanks,

It is a minimalist expedition rig.

I like that;)
Is there enough space to allow for flex between the camper and cab?
Is that the one that had some problems in Mexico last year?
