    Budget? Are there AZ style rock trails in SC? Are you thinking of cutting up a perfectly good 2011 Tacoma?

    nothing as extreme as AZ, IMHO Harlan KY is the spot for me. I was thinking about doing a SAC on my tacoma, but i also have a TLC i could hack on also. But everything is always in the air. Id love a light buggy i can put on a super light trailer and tow with Tacoma. I think the TLC will end up a bartering tool to a welder/fab/family member.... hes one of the guys that keeps me reverting back to my offroad roots even if he donesnt do offroading anymore

    yea but zukis are getting hard to find and $$. Id love a body so i dont get muddy and wet. but that = more weight to tow. SAC Tacoma = heavy pig with spares tools ect.. TLC = PIG very heavy and 9mpg

    Then tube out a yota with a 22re, links, pour money into the axles, run some 37" stickies you'll have a narrow light strong platform that's cheaper too and can keep a cab.

    Dual triangulated front & rear, flat belly, nice body lines (some what). Just needs 2TR-FE, an auto trans, atlas 4spd, and its DONE!

    But have a feeling weight would be too heavy with trailer behind my tacoma
