I've been lurking for about a week now, Ive found a wealth of knowledge here and look forward to contributing regularly from what I've seen so far.
As I type this I do not have any pics readily available, so I will come back & post them up as soon as I get them taken and/or hosted.
I'm currently in my 3rd Toyota 4x4... never owned anything else.
1) '88 4WD RegCab, 22REC / 5spd MT (totaled by a freight train)
2) '90 4WD RegCab, 22R / 5spd MT (still with my dad who gave it a flat bed)
3) '96 Ext cab, 3.4L V6 / 5spd MT (currently driving & sweating the frame rust issue)
So I guess it's no surprise that I'm under the gun with the frame rust issue... I've had 2 inspections so far and am getting pretty nervous as to what's gonna happen.
I predict I'm gonna find issues AFTER my window of opportunity expires & then be stuck with it.
Currently shopping for a late 1gen (01-03) or at least that's what my savings tells me .
My list of demands is short, but getting hard to come by:
1) 4WD, 2) V6, 3) 5spd MT
Found a great '01 locally, everything on my list plus more, but it's at a super sleazy small dealership - letting it go just because I can't bring myself to work with them.
I'm currently active on several other forums as well (for different interests), I think this makes aahh, hmm, *RS25...NSOC...WT...M-R...MLPF... plus a couple others... let's say 6.
So I'm wondering how many of you are like me in the fact that you're active in several forums to support your modding habits for various hobbies.
I'm willing to bet if you're into SPORTBIKES, SUBARUS or LESPAULS, maybe we've crossed paths before (or will).
I gotta say, you've got a decent crop o' smileys around here
That's all for my intro, for now... I'll probably be pokin' my nose in yer business pretty regularly for the next couple of weeks, so now you know a little bit about who I am.
