We set out to build a lightweight Toyota that can rockcrawl with the best of them and leave ’em whimpering in the aisles. Mission accomplished. Over the last two issues you’ve seen a plain-Jane ’85 Toyota go from semi-stocker to a nearly completed rock-munching machine. Well, here it is in its final form.

Looking at the photographs, you can get the mistaken impression that building something like this is pretty easy. Way wrong, Charlie. While it isn’t totally impossible, some heavy-duty thought and man hours go into a project such as this. Figuring out suspension geometry, coming up with a building plan, then finding the man hours to actually do it can be somewhat daunting. That’s why we’ve got to give major props to the gang at All Pro Off Road.
