    WOW! that's a really good idea and $1500 is still pretty cheap but i think i could build it cheaper. i get free labor, at cost material prices etc..:cool: but before i get to excited i will have to report back here what i find out saturday morn. (pics!) I have contacted the seller and set up an appointment so wish me luck! I cant wait to rescue a beat up toy and breath some life into her again

    Damn that looks like a pretty good deal a buddy of mine had an 83 that he use for a beater and he sold it for 800 but this thing had been put through hell. We had the rear quarter panels zip tied on it smoked like a train lol

    but none the less it did say toyota so it always got us where we need to go
