Turbo Supra 4Runner
Crawling in Moab, UT April 2009. I was having trouble because I didn't have the rear locker wired up. Of course it doesn't help having wet tires. Unfortunately my baby had to be sold in order to purchase my FZJ80.

My 1st attempt at the wedge on Milt's Mile Trail in the turbo 4runner at the 2011 Southwest Crawlfest. Backed out for a better line. See part two for the successful run.
1987 4runner 22re Turbo Hill Climb
We parked and hiked for a bit and hit up this hill before we left for the day. The 4runner has gone through a transmission replacement a few months back and differential replacement/upgrade 2 weeks before this day out. Even with leaky turbo it's been running strong and hasn't ran into any troubles out on Thomas Trail, Bee Cayon, Old Idylwild Road, or Black Mountain. Luckily the transmission and differential problems occurred on the streets and not out on the trails. With it's age and little engine power, I'm surprised at how it has preformed on the trails. The constant repairs on this old truck will push it to be very reliable soon. Hill rating 7/10. Recommended 4X4 with lockers on.
