    Can everyone give me a hand? I'm looking for a cheap, working small 4wd chassis, does not need a body. Something with a small turning radius would be good.

    I'm going to be building a "tank" for airsoft/paintball events. If y'all know of anything post it here.

    The ones that other people have made range from an old Datsun pickup to a golfcart. I don't know about 1st gen toyota just because price, We all know toyota holds value.

    In/around the Boone area would be good but if it's anywhere in/near NC that would work too.

    The Toyota is in Matany. The body is pretty beat, a bit rusty and I think it may need a head gasket. Might be a good candidate for what you're trying to do. If you want me to see if he wants to sell it just let me know.

    Yea, I think we could work with that. If you could get some details that would be great.

    Everyone else, keep ideas coming.

    If you can find a rusted out beat up PreTaco Pickup or 4Runner that'd be smaller, better turn radius, and cheaper (or anything along that age/size).
