I don’t “like” the truck but I do like the cup holders
I was thinking the exact same thing. Brilliant idea.
Anybody have a clue what this is? Seller is advertising it as a 1971 Toyota FJ75. A google search of that shows this truck, and that's it.
A heavily modified Dodge M-37, or perhaps a locally produced variant. The bed, hood, front drive flange, and running board all deviate considerably from stock, and the grille guard looks like that of a WC. I'd love to see what's under the hood.
Here's another possibility, probably pretty remote: in the '80's, Toyota produced the Mega Cruiser, which looked like a HMMWV on a slightly smaller scale. Maybe Toyota did the same thing with the M37 design?
Definitely not a Mega Cruiser. I've actually seen one of those in the flesh, and they were actually produced in the 90s. 1995 was the first generation, and they can be imported legally this year, if you can actually find one.
It could be Dodge. The structure seems right, even though the bodywork is quirky. I'm half tempted to inquire about this thing just to get more information.
Previous ‘show truck’ recovered from 20+ years of storage:
Abandoned for over a decade.
Running and driving within a few hours:
Many years ago a buddy had a CJ7 with those massive MickyT's. Could not believe how smooth they rode around town.
Of course they are smooth running, they are street tires made to look like off road tires. They sucked for wheeling
We have a winner! That is definitely the truck in the ad. I never even knew those existed.
Depends on what you used them for. On sand & rock crawling & deep snow they were awesome at low pressure, for mud running & trail riding with any hills they sucked because they had so much flotation. Even a fairly easy trail hill with a little bit of moisture was almost impossible to climb where a 2 wheel drive with skinny muds could walk up or down that same hill with ease. A damp sidehill was suicidal.
