1990 Toyota 4Runner
Driver: Paul Tiegrob

Longtime Petersen's 4-Wheel & Off-Road reader and trail fanatic Paul Tiegrob and his co-driver, Chris Nikkel, reminded us all what it was like to wheel an old-school Toyota. Seeing and hearing Paul's 4Runner on the trail brought back a lot of memories for most of us, reminding us just how well these rigs worked back in the day with the right modifications.
