Our test mule is an '85 Toyota Xtracab 4x4. This particular model is highly desirable among Toyota trail runners because '85 was the last year of the solid front axle, and the first year of an available fuel-injected 22RE motor. Owner Lynn Harrington had already added several goodies to make the 'Yota trail-capable. Among those goodies are Hy-Steer crossover steering, 35-inch tires, and Rancho RS-9000X front shocks.
