Mike, I don't know how you do it, but you have a knack for rocking the yota builds!

I saw this bad boy in person today and it is way cooler than it even looks in pics. Very nice job indeed Mike! Lets figure out that gru so you can wheel it soon before there are leaves all over the course!

DAMN you!!!! you stole one of my ideas!! I have an old(er) Moab vid, and there is some footage of a bad ass yota doing PSH, and the bed is supported the same way, and that is something I wanted to do.

Your build is down right bad ass mike, great work! I hope mine will come out to be as cool as yours.

Ooooo Nooo, that snorkel IS going ON. the only reason why its not on yet is because I havent had time to sit and paint the weather stripping around the windshield yet.

I was going to EXO cage this truck, bent the main hoop in the back and all but didnt do because I wanted the snorkel on it After all, I need a new submarine now that clone has gone to a new home

LOL...its been said before and ill say it again, ide be afraid to wheel it after puttin that much work into it and seein how amazing it came out...but then again, thats what the hard work is for right? And some of my favorite pictures on here are of the nicer rigs out in the rough stuff.

Dude dont show me things like that , seeing a white 4runner like mine with an exo cage makes me want to sell mad RC shit and make the 1:1 insane...That guy should have spent his $$ on a SA though 1st

I'll do an exo on my next Toyota build, well maybe not the next, that one is going to be a "stock" truck...But the one after that will get the exo.

1bad this is a great looking truck. the detail on the inner fenders and the stance is perfect. my 1:1 was that blue many many spray cans ago. now i wish it was still blue. good work

It's builds like this that make me wish I had talent. I'm really trying. Keep up the great builds and I'm looking forward to more.

Hi there, I think that that sweet sweet truck would look killer with a Gat-or-net on the back end it would really finish up the unfinished look for me, and be sure to make it too long and a little droopy

It has crossed my mind, gotta figure out a good way to make it...my sewing skills arent so hot

It wont be sold anytime soon, I have to at least finish it and wheel it a couple of times

Wish I had some real updates, but I dont :-( Things have been crazy by me and I have been getting ready for the NRCTPA worlds so I havent had time to work on it...I did mount the HPI unit and cut the ends off the steel yokes so I could make drive shafts and get my Cold case in but that didnt work out the other night.
