1985 Toyota Truck Rock-Crawler - Project Rock Truggy, Part 3Posted in Project Vehicles on April 1, 2001 0) (
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 youve 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 isnt 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. Thats why weve got to give major props to the gang at All Pro Off Road.
