OK... so after all the feed back I have gotten back from you boys.. I am really thinking of buying a beater just for wheeling:p I am looking a spending around $5000 or so... whats the best truck I should get? and why?:confused:

toyota pickup or 4runner. either built/swapped already or not. makes for a great starter. why? because you asked whats the best truck you can get...


you might not want to drive your ranger after though... [stoned]

From what i've learned it depends on what you want to do with it. If your into mud bogging then go with something with a big motor like a Bronco or Blazer (I know, someone always thinks ones better than the other. The debate will go on for eternity i'm sure) but if your into to running the trails then a smaller truck like a 4Runner would be good. Every vehicle has it's pro's and con's, it just depends on what you prefer.

Toyota guys are [f]


Personally, I'd say it really depends what you want to do.


For a real beater, maybe an old FSJ Cherokee or Grand Wagoneer. Cut up some fenders, add 35s, add lockers, call it quits. But, those things are wide, heavy, and get 8mpg downhill with a tail wind in neutral.


Or, an older toyota 4runner or PU. But, you have to get a solid front axle version. And you have to be willing to live with 68.2HP. Long as you're never in a hurry... But they are narrow enough to fit through things.


Or, if you don't plan to run larger that say, 33" tires, a Jeep Cherokee is alright. Look for one with a D44 rear (87-89 with luck), and the 4.0L. With a few mods they flex pretty well, have decent power, and EFI and a bunch of quirks related to owing a Jeep. But, they're really cheap.

I used to have an 88 Ranger and now have an 85 runner. I've spent more time building my 4runner, partly to get rid of the rust, but it has never left me stranded. I spent a few nights stranded because of the crappy ford. I've never broken anything that isn't easily fixable on the trail with my Toy, so I've never been stranded. Toyotas are generally more expensive than domestic, they're known for bad rust and most leak oil. But they've got a stronger drivetrain and they're reliable. If you can find one with minimal or no rust, get it. For $5000 you can get yourself a built truck with a SAS and you won't have to worry about tearing it apart and fixing all the little things. Anyways, you can buy my truck for $6 g's if you want

I'm a jeep guy. Always will be I love the look of them so I'll spend the money to make one do what I want to do. From what you posted I would say you have three choices, Toyota, Jeep, or Zuki. Toyota are very capable but again you need to spend the money on then to make them bush capable. Same would go for the Jeep.

If you have a $5000 budget I think your best bang for your buck is a Suzuki. Lots of kids own them have been modified them. They are light and nimble and would make a great fun little trail rat. I am sure you can find one around town but before you spend the money let Darryl (godzuka) have a look at it. Not sure what he would charge but it would be worth every penny to get his feedback. Hope this helps[cheers]

If you want an everything truck, you have to go Blazer,,,, or maybee bronco. These are trucks that can evolve easily. They are capable when stock, but as you want to grow you can BOLT in one tone stuff for strength.If you go with something else, you will spend huge to put the chevy stuff in. The best trucks on this site, with the exception of Sue, (maybee more ) are using full size chevy stuff. And when they get stuck, its the little big truck that can and will again get them out. [f] . If you want a 4X that is gooder out of the box go with a little POS. But the are limmited and direction motivated ( trails or mud ) My Blazer does it all reasonably well with room inside to take everything I want.[cheers]

First time i have ever agreed with Kevin but you already have a truck so consider a quad.When they break the parts are cheaper.

MetalMan
10-21-2006, 09:40 AM
First off, this is the wrong question to ask. Don't spend any more than a G on a beater, and take whatever you can get for that G. You'll have to work on it; eventually you'll be doing the same amount of work on a 5G vehicle too, however. And it'll hurt the pocketbook much less in the long run. If it has 4 wheels and the capability to spin them all, it's a good wheeling truck. Although I am partial to Dodge/Jeep myself...at any rate, I don't care what any of these guys say, Toys SUCK BALLS for mudding (they're not so bad on trails though). They are wayyyyy too gutless, and believe me I am speaking from experience. You might find the odd one that doesn't have a 4-banger, it could be a little more worthwhile but not very easy to come by. Another thing, stick...no good for wheeling. Lots of guys do it, mainly for the "I'm a mans man" factor. I've wheeled stick and I've wheeled auto, auto always does a better job of getting you through anything. Mud or trails, so long as you've got a good tranny cooler you'll outwheel almost anything with stick. It's not so bad if you can shift it like a banshee before losing any momentum, but truck shifters don't allow for that sort of thing...

Might be a good idea to hit the trails more or go to stave and see what others are driving and how they perform. And if you find something you like, how to make it or if you can't make it perform better.

I really depends on what kind of wheeling you want to do and how often you want to do it. Size and level you're comfortable with too. :) And budget to buy something is one thing .. budget to fix it is totally different :D ;)

True, but a toyota is a lot cheaper to build up than a toy. Just look how much you were budgeting for you new jeep build vs what any of us have put into our toys. Replacement parts & mods for a jeep are at least twice as much as the equivalent for a toy.

Suzikis are good and cheap, but they're tiny. Have fun going camping or on longer exploring trip with a zuk.





Whats a good down the middle truck.. :confused: little mudding.. some trails:p the main reason I got into wheeling was getting to the good camping spots:D but now I am getting into it more then I thought I would[36] sooo dont think my truck will cut it:( inless I put way more money into her.. already spent way to much[16] I am looking for a truck that I can grow with.. but can take a beating.. after all there will be a girl driving it[k] (need a truck easy to get parts for)

Sounds like a Toyota would do what you want and more.

Advantages:
Cheap to find parts for
a lot cheaper to upgrade than most other trucks
capable stock (even moreso with a few cheap mods)

Disadvantages:
The older ones tend to rust out (but same can be said for most other older vehicles)

If you're not in a rush to buy, keep an eye out and you'll find a good deal on one with minimal rust.



For camping, exploring, and mild trail running I would start with a late 80's 4Runner (removable top kicks ass in the summer[36]) or a pickup.

'85 & prior had a solid front axle (SFA) which is more desirable for offroad, but the older frames tend to rust out worse than the '86 & up IFS (independant front suspension) trucks. A solid axle swap (SAS) is very common and relatively cheap and easy to do on the IFS toys. You might even be able to find one already done within your price range. Fuel injection (efi) also started in '85 and is a must have for offroad and just generaly better all around.


if you start with a stockish late 80s toy, throw in a rear locker ($3-400ish) and maybe a small body lift and 33" tires (31s are stock) and you'll be good to go

then when you're ready for more extreme trails down the road do a SAS.



If I was you though, I would sell the ford and buy a toyota project truck, and a nice reliable daily driver that is cheap on gas. Unless you've got the money to do it all.

let me know if you've got any toy Q's[cheers]

I`ve wheeled broncos 1st gen toys cherokees VW bus and currently (my second one) scouts
all of them were good trucks the bus was just plain fun
The toy was best tho for all the trail stuff I did bought it for $300 invested $300 it was solid axle the frame was shot when I bought it drove it and wheeled it daily for one year got a vi and sold it for $300 but it was the only truck to never let me down anywhere and always got me where I pointed it I put 33" tires on it with that investment and no other mods

hey i think you would really like toyotas.....the older style 4 runner like an 88 is a perfect girl truck...and tough too.....one thing i like about a 4 runner is the canopy top....its a great convertable truck...and great for camping...you fold down the back seat and you can fit a fouton matress in there, i swear to god it will be the best bed you have even slept in and dry too :rolleyes: there fairly good on gas too....and parts for them arent to bad either...well clean tailgates are gold........I have had my 4 runner for i think 4 years know....when my b/f starts to mention selling it ...I have to fight back the tears...i love my toyota...there no doubt about that ...and it is really nothing great. Its good in trails, and good for mud...depending on what ya do. but i think that it is a great girls starter truck....no offence boys:p

I suggest getting a Ford, or maybe a Jeep, then again a Dodge is good. You might want to look at a Toyota, or maybe a Nissan. Don't forget the Unimog or the Chevy. There's also the Suzuki to consider. An Isuzu, International Harvester (just for you Phil) or a Land Rover is an idea as well. I hope this gives you some options to choose from! :D

Yeah, all in all it looks like there's a lot of Toyota left in that Toyota. I'm sure you have no problem downshifting your gutless Toyota (and yeah, it's fucking gutless buddy, get behind a V8 and then tell me your 4-banger has balls, even 32's in 4Lo didn't work worth squat, 1st gear and no more)...on perfectly hard, level ground. How many guys get stuck in mud because they tried to grab another gear? You better have a wicked aftermarket shifter, a lot of power, and steep gears to try and grab gears in mud or it isn't happening. On a loose hill, tires start losing traction, truck loses momentum, have to upshift...truck loses all momentum, and you get to take a bunch of life out of the clutch to slowly ease it into motion again and keep the tires from spinning. Trucks aren't set up for fast shifting, and even the pedals are usually placed so that you need 3 feet. Dual t-cases and steep gears help on the trails, but I'd rather just put it in 4-Lo and pull the shifter down. And if I need to grab another gear...I just move it up a notch. But of course, that isn't manly enough...

Could be a very cool truck,,,, but parts for somthing like that can be hard to come by. If you don't mind waiting to find parts it would be great, but something more mainstreem would be better for a first time rig. I'm into 67-72 Chevy trucks and Blazers. The mechanical end of things is real easy and the rest is readily available aftermarket,,,,,,,,,,,if you have a straight frame to build on[27] . I'll be back in a couple o months[cheers]

By the way, I've never been on bc4x4. Ever. I'm not even allowed to register. So if you don't like me, why don't YOU take your Lordco lovin' ass back over there?

fullsize chev go for evrything but not tight trails hard toi use and toys are right in the middle in length capabilty and easy to modify but exsensiuve to repair or find parts from 85 up


and fords well yah all now.................


and isuzu are quiet the rigs if you want to some serisou mods


mogs well expensive and good for evrything if you want to pay 50 000 for em

Ok soo it might be the "cowgirl" in me but... I like bigger trucks:p The Scout.. I just love the way it looks(I know a really girly reason to like a truck), and if I could find one with little or no rust:D I could wheel it stock, and build as my skills improve or as the break shit:rolleyes: But in the end it will come down to what I can afford....:o 5g's is just a starting point... figer if i could put that much cash down i could get me a half decent truck to build up on. I am not just looking to buy a truck to trash

Im not reading through 8 pages of this...so I dont know if its been said. Hopefully it has, the best truck for wheeling is one that doesnt cost much to buy, came stock with some beefy parts, and had a wealth of old parts rusting away in a scrap yard that can be had for a couple bucks. Example are old fullsizes of the big 3 and yotas. Id say suzuki too but when I was looking for one they were all like $3500 for an old one.
