Just stumbled on this thread searching for sailaway's jeeps. Darn near started drooling when I saw the Commando. I've always loved those things.

My current vehicle is a 2008 Toyota Tundra, CrewMax, 4x4. I am slowly formulating ideas for what I want to do with it. First up is going to be skid protection for off-road. I like Toyotas, I had an '82 4x4 with 22R 4 cylinder I loved. For the life of me I can't understand why Toyota made a truck like the Tundra and didn't put much in the way of protection for the engine, gas tank, etc... underneath. The Tundra fits the family with tons of room for gear and power to spare, but I am strongly considering looking at something older. Points and condenser aren't to be sneezed at in my book.

Just so everyone knows, I've also owned a 69CJ, a 77 Full Size Cherokee and a 91 Wagoneer, so you won't hear me bashing Jeeps. Come to think of it, not many vehicles that I don't like, or at least respect.

Oh, and when it comes to the Mitsu Delica, they were all over the place in Kuwait! Left hand drive, even! We had a couple that our guys drove, and they were pretty cool. I would love to have one. Never seen one state side, though.

We have an 86 Toy 4-runner which is basically when they took the PU and slapped a rear seat and topper on the bed. More truck than SUV. we had the engine rebuilt in 04, so I hope we have miles and miles to go. I have thought about seeing if I could drop a diesel engine in there after reading some of the fiction stories on here from JD, but not sure if it is possible. We are currently designing our BO plan based on this vehicle and my MC.
