Hello! The truck is an 83’ short bed, 22r (AZ rust free truck.), with a Marlin Crawler heavy duty clutch, and transmission with a granny gear. The truck is basically stock, it has a small lift, but will be getting Chevys in the rear. The truck was purchased by my father when he was 19 from the original owner in Tucson, AZ. He had it for almost 20 years before he sold it. Five years later the truck went up for sale again and I decided to buy it back. Since then, I’ve been daily driving it, and slowly restoring it back to its former glory. I plan on making the suspension great, but keeping the body, and interior all original. Eventually, I would like to swap in a 1.9tdi power plant. The tdi won’t be until this 22r blows up... and seeing how It’s on it’s second motor, with 50k miles (maybe), it might never happen! As parts get harder to find for the older generations, I’ve been using almost exclusively LC Engineering parts. I love driving this truck every day and talking to all the people at local spots who stop me and tell me their Toyota stories. I don't plan on ever getting rid of this truck!
