Not much Toyota there Luciano. It's a Scout frame, has a Chevy 4.3 mid engine, Rockwell axles, rear steer, a doubler and a Toyota body. Works fairly well. You should see what he drove before he built this one.

Maybe it's just me but the rig looks foolish. It's insanely tall and has tractor tires. I don't see how it would be a good rock crawler... I dunno

It wasn't, he built it so his whole family could ride with him. He uses the big military tires, because they are cheap (100bucks a pop), the military beadlocks are cheap also and fit the Rockwells. He likes to built on a budget. The Toyota thingy has a lot more promise, when it's lowered a bit and has somewhat smaller tires it might make a pretty darn capable rig. From talking to him his next build will be a Jeep of sorts that will be a bit smaller.

They look like 5 ton rocks, but maybe they are 2.5. They just look bigger than the 2.5's, nice I like it.

1993 YJ 4.0 60 Front, Rear steer 60, bolth spooled, 5.38's, 700r/241 39.5 iroks and beating it like it owes me money.

Fall time Hammertime.
Headed out to the Hammers for a weekend of wheelin.
Yesterday we attempted to tackle SOS, funnest trail we did to date even though we could not finish the last 300 feet or so. We tried for over an hour. With the end result being a dented hood, a busted tire and a mangled corner/ windshield mount. So after some adventurous maneuvering and a busted winch cable we where headed back where we came from. Going down was exciting to say the least IT has one turn/ climb that when you hit it wrong you roll atleast 3 times, going down that thing was pucker times 10.
After getting lined up right it was a very quick steep 20 feet slide down, brakes wouldn't hold, nearly vertical, fun stuff. We both made it down rather quickly to say the least. The rest of the decent, was tough, but not overly eciting like a few previous parts of the trail.

Today we met up with some other people headed out to Lower Big Johnson as a warm up then the group split up.\
Five Jeeps headed out to Clawhammer, 4 of us continued up upper Big Johnson, never done thast one before was a fun , short trail.
After that Fred and me headed to Aftershock, knocked that one out of the park. Went back to the motorhome picked up Fred's wife and did Sledgehammer, had gotten a little more exciting. Things got a bit interesting at the plaque. Fred had a heck of a time trying to climb that ledge, wife got scared, got out. Then he wanted me to try it and nailed it . He tried the same line and no go so few strategic rocks and we were back on track . Started around 9.30 in the morning got back to to motorhome for a final time at 1.30 pm, loaded the Jeeps up and homeward bound we were

Looks like a bunch of loose rocks, = sketchy lines.

Makes me want to ditch all the purdy stuff on dump and build some 14 bolts and swap some 40s. Maybe one day.
