Sure looks Toyota'ish under the hood...I like weirdo 4x4's and this fits the bill!
Isuzu MU (RODEO) Turbo-Diesel, Manual 4X4 (JDM) 1991 * 113K ml*
It was the SSO (Southern Style Off-road) GX470. It’s locked but he obviously doesn’t know how to control the skinny pedal. Bad spotting on the second obstacle and I’m not sure why he didn’t disable his side curtain airbags? There is a video of him destroying at the jamboree as well.Anyone watch the show Truck Night in America on History Channel? They had a guy on with a Lexus 100 Series and he just didn't seem to have a clue. His truck seemed very capable, but he launched it off the first jump and nosedived into the dirt and *** wait for it*** set the freaking air bags off. How does he build a truck that capable and then not disable the airbags?
To make it worse, later in the show he ends up stuck in a ditch and THE SIDE AIRBAGS GO OFF ... WTF MAN?!?!? I didn't even see him say he had lockers on his truck.
I've seen a few 4-runners do well and maybe an old pickup, but have never seen an 80 Series on there. I would think they could find better representatives of the Yota community than some of the trucks they have had on the show. The truck that won this episode was a Suzuki Samurai with a V8 and Chevy 1ton axles. It was basically a buggy, not really a Samurai anymore, didn't really seem like a fair fight.
