Looking for a "never leave the property" 4x4 Toyota truck to do rescues and carry trail maintenance tools out on the property. Nothing with a tall lift kit, too roll over prone with a tall lift. I don't want to pay for a pretty truck, because it won't be pretty very long around here. The last two I bought were both around $1200 in kinda rough cosmetic shape, but solid mechanical shape. I don't care if it has not been tagged in a while, I don't care if it has a messed up title with signatures in the wrong place, as I will never tag or title it. I'm only concerned about the truck being in good mechanical condition. $2000 is my limit.

Cracked windshield, dents in the body, worn out tires, radio missing, headliner ripped, all of that is OK for my purpose. Can go higher than $2000 I mentioned if you are willing to trade out parts or service work, ride time, bike rentals, cabin rentals. I would consider another brand besides Toyota, but since I have 2 Toyotas here now that I can salvage parts from as needed, it makes good sense to go with a Toyota.

I still remember the original one I drove that day we cut in Trail number one approximately 11 years ago!

Joe, I still have that one, but it started having issues, as you might imagine living at HP for years, so I bought a second one, which eventually started having problems, then sheared off a rear spring shackle with a piece of the frame. Looking for #3 now. They don't get a lot of miles put on them, but they are pretty hard miles bouncing around out here. They seem to last 4 or 5 years, not bad for $1200 bucks or so. I had a 4x4 Ford Ranger too, but it would not go down the rougher trails like T15 without some slam dancing drama. Too much weight, soft suspension, and not enough ground clearance.

Some 1/8 or 1/4 inch stock, an hour with a welder, and that shackle perch should be good as new!

There are running issues as well, but the reason the frame pulled apart was tons of rust inside the frame had eaten it thin. Must have been a northern truck in the past. ::whatever::
