This is one of the hard-core crowd when it comes to full-bodied Tacomas. Eric Mollencopf built up this rig from what was once a two-wheel-drive Prerunner. He's cut it up a number of times and added more steel as needed to fit a coil-sprung and fortified Dana 44 up front and leaf-sprung 14-bolt out back. A 2.7L I-4 followed by an automatic spins a Marlin Crawler adapted with a 2.28:1 reduction in front of the original Tacoma transfer case. Tires are 40-inch Maxxis Creepy Crawlers.
