What year did Toyota stop putting solid front axles in there 80's pickups?

I am just curious for a friend, he wants to get a decent truck to play around with. I told him to find an early 80's Toyota, but I cant remember when they stopped with the solid front axle.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

this was the truck he was looking at, 1 year off!!! Figures...
Still a good deal! AND...Those had a pretty unique torsion bar front end....The bars run along the top of the frame to prevent getting hit on rocks....

I like how toyota did that. I know Nissan ran them to the lower control arm. Not a good idea for wheeln.
