    '94 jeep cherokee seets. looking to build and mod. thats why im here.
    Hey everyone, so i just registered on here last night. My name is Gabe. I currently have an 07 Xterra which is my main offroading and driving rig. and i know the forums sites pretty well.

    So of course i have a yota..buuut its my project truck. 1980 toyota pick up. single cab long bed. its nick name is, the lobster, because of its color. anyways..i figured i would join the site and find some useful tips and good advice as i slowly start workin on mods.

    k so i finally took some snaps of the yota im gunna be workin on. its nickname is "the lobster" my buddy thought of that, i guess cause the color. just random. anyways. she runs great. all original. 4 speed 20R motor. we replaced the bucket seat with 94 cherokee reclining seats.
