Like the subjects says, post a picture of your truck or 4Runner, and tell us about it. If you have a lot of pics and mods, and feel up to it, sign up for the rig of the biweek, and you'll get a whole thread to yourself! :D

Lets keep the chat to a minimum (That means none! :D) If you have a question about someones truck, start a new thread, or PM them, so we don't clutter this up.

I'll start.

I'm driving an 89 4Runner named the James Caird. Read about the origin of the name here.

It has a 22R-E and a 5 speed and is pushing 300k now, but I have reason to suspect the engine and tranny have both been messed with at some point.

Tires are 33x10.5 BGF MT's.
Torsion bars are cranked up front and 3 inch longer than stock shackle in the back for about 1.5 inch lift all around.
Marlin 4.7 transfer case gears.
4.56 differentials, and rear E-Locker.
95 SR5 4Runner bucket seats.
93 Hilux Surf Clinometer/Altimeter from New Zealand
Upgraded 4Crawler headlight wire harness and headlights.
Custom pinstriping down both sides. :confused:

New to this site not to wheelin though. Did the Jeep thing for 15 years after my first "mini" which served me very well, but in my native Washington State the trails at times were too tight for all the sheetmetal of a truck, so along came the Jeep, now a new turn in my wheelin hobby has come along and it's back to a truck.

Am good and ready for some good abuse from the Cruiser guys and hope to get out and wheel with some of ya this summer when mine gets done.

Here's where I'm at so far. On the front springs, steering done, needs rear suspension yet and then all the little crap. :D 85 SC, GM 4.3/700r4 and Dana 300 case. a couple of 60's with 5,38's and Detroits and some 37" Goodyear shoes. Links and coils front and rear plus a few other goodies alng the way. The pic shows the rig at ride height. Trimming will comence when the suspension is all done.
