A little about myself... just turned 25, moved out to BC 2 years ago soley for the awesome backcountry and greenery:D , originally from Manitoba but endured about 6 years in Southern Ontario for school. My interests include hiking, camping, snowboarding and all things motorized! My current toys include a Honda XR650R dirtbike that I have plated as a dualsport, an Arctic Cat ZR chassis mountain mod sled, and my latest project an 86 Toyota 4x4 pick up. I enjoy exploring around Harrison and lately have been checkin out the Goldbridge/Bralorne area. I live in Coquitlam with my gf and our great dane and hoping to eventually find some other folks to camp, ride and get lost with.[cheers] [36]

Here's a few pics of the truck... bone stock right now... guy I bought it from brought it up from his family's farm in So Cal 2 years ago so there is virtually no rust, interior has new carpet and upgraded buckets, overall the truck is super clean. 155k miles on all original 22R motor and driveline.
Plan is to make it a daily driver/weekend wheeler (gettin rid of my dodge ram to finance this build) so nothing to extreme in the short term (No SAS at this time).

Going to remove the few surface rust areas and prime the body then planing to lower half of the truck will be Line X'd... upper half of truck will likely be flat orange. Frame will get coated with rust inhibitor as well.

Once I know the body is solid and sealed I'm going to Re-gear to 4.88's with rear locker and run 33x10.5 MT's, and add power steering. Full skid plate and belly pan. Really not into lifting it too much, I don't need a rock crawler. I think I will likely do balljoint spacers and upgrade the torsion bars to LC engineering HD ones. Re arced springs with a block or add a leaf in the rear.

Should be a neat little rig... unfortunately I'm also house shopping and will probably be moving soon so probably won't get finished for awhile. In the meantime my XR650R keeps me amused[36]

Also threw up a pic of my other toy 01 ZR 440 snopro chassis with built D&D racing open mod 720 race motor, 136" inch 2.5" paddle track...Love the sledding out here!
