    Hey guys saw this locally on craigslist. Making me wanna pull out a loan for this new toy. Don't know a lot about long travel and total chaos but seems popular. Any thoughts on this truck just from reading the ad? No good pictures

    The specs look clean, 4.88s and a locker for the rear. I wonder if there are any gussets anywhere

    I'm thinking the same because obviously this truck is in Hawaii chances of that happening are slim lol. The whole engine replacement thing worries me a but also. If there is 71000 on the truck and 46000 on a new motor? Around 24000 there was an engine replacement? Lol I donno sounds weird

    "The bottom of the bumper ties the lower a Arms mounts together ."

    Only ring I don't understand, and remember I don't know a lot about long travel just always been a fan of these trucks, is how do 5 lug two wheel drives get by? Wouldn't you want 4 wheel drive for this type of truck or is it because it's meant for racing and not worrying about getting stuck. Sorry if these are dumb questions.

    Im pretty sure i know the current owner, its not a scam or anything. I think it was built by total chaos, later auctioned off on ebay and shipped to him from either cali or vegas, I forget.

    They probably put the motor in before they sold it to him. Either way oahu has no place to drive it to its potential but it still would be really really fun. I say go for it. The owner is always buying and selling unique items for good deals.

    No he didn't seem like he was scamming or anything. I just don't know a lot ab out these trucks and trying to gather info and see others opinions. Yah I'm thinking about selling my taco for it 8) or my streetbike. Working out the details. From the couple pics I saw so far the truck looks exactly like the one on their website!

    good to know. I actually wanna know how it will do as a daily. Im actually super tired of dodginf huge potholes and all this fucked up stuff on our roads. This would make me very happy not veering left and right and just pounding through this stuff. IM talking like potholes that break control arms on our HIGHWAYS!!!!! lol Read some of the lt info on this site. Seems like a lot of lt builds are really loud and noisy as dailys im wondering if this little taco, since it was built by total chaos might be pretty decent as a daily not super loud and creaky. I drive a lowered truck so obviously i know about weird noises ha ha. Just dont want to live in regret. Thanks for all the help so far everybody thats why i love this place lol

    I know, the roads there are crap.... you wont have to worry about potholes and stuff anymore but the noise is subjective. Go for a drive in it and let us know!
