is title says what do you feel was the best mod
and what was the worst mod you did to your wheeling rig
on my 4 runner the doubler made the biggest differance in tight trail running
the worst mod was breaking the sunroof
by droping the truck on it[27]

oh yea sunroof was still installed in roof when truck landed on it:party0010: :party0010: :party0010: :party0010: :party0010: :party0010: :party0010: :party0010: :party0010:

They are only rusty cuz they're old and still running. How many late '70s early '80s jeeps do you see running around? How about late '70's fords? Chevs?

Besides...like somebody's sig line says "Toyota rust is the best rust"[cheers]

I love the trucks, but sometimes working on them makes me wish i owned a nice new truck. But the solid axle and pure sexiness of a 79-02 toyota makes up for the rust :D

not really sure as how i could say best or worst mod as each one was done to compliment the other as much as possible.

The gear splitter was the last big change and that was several years ago and it was a huge improvement in driveability. haveing 8 useable forward speeds and being able to find just the right gear for hills or towing or flat is really nice.

my headers i am not fond of especially now that i have had to deal with welding the rust holes and header askets ticking drive me nuts.


i also added an am fm cassete player in the last year and that seem pretty good when i can get reception
