jeep Vs. Toyota results

well after 7 months, and multiple wheelin trips, the results are in. While i can follow him anywhere he goes, he crawls up and i struggle somtimes, but make it up and out none the less. He's got 35" swampers and boggers and i only have T/A's, but i still follow him, and i have yet to been winched out at all.
So, the toyota can make it easy, but i always have his bumper in sight.

(just an excuse to post pics)















2001 XJ, 32 BFG T/A, or 33TSL's. Front/Rear ARB's,
5.5"Rubicon Express Extreme Duty
D30 front/ D44 rear

one of my good friends that i always wheel with has an 07 taco on 32" bfg at's (no lift). he goes everywhere my lj on 30" bfg at's goes, but sometimes its just a tighter fit for him. his truck actually impressed me the first couple times we went out.. but i'd still rather have a jeep i personally think yotas are pretty badass.

a good friend of mine wheels an 85 toyota pickup. it does really well. great simple, easy to work on wheeler. it doesnt work as well as the xj, since its got leaves all around, low hanging crossmembers, and longer wheelbase. but it does real well. if for some reason i could not own a jeep i would defiantly have a yota.

The only thing that bothers me about Toyotas is the fact that the seat sets so low to the floor and your legs stick straight out. I like sitting down with my legs down. Other than that they are good vehicles.

I wheel sometimes with a few Tacos and a Nissan Path that is fairly badass...

They crawl all over, being heavily modified rigs, and I keep up as best I can, but I can say this. The Jeeps look better doing it!

Nothing like an old Taco to throw around.

Only complaint about them is that the CV's on the front end snap like twigs once you put larger tires on it and have to give it any kind of workout.

I like the older front solid axle toyotas. the 2.2 engines. It was a good era. You can have anything after that, it gets pretty expensive when you start breaking things on anything to do with the auto trans, or the non-solid axle front drivetrain. And nevermind the electronics on some of these.
