A little more than a year ago I built my Toyota Hilux High-Lift. Here's the process depicted in seven images. I made the truck to look like an early 80's MudBog racer. Further modification will be shown later, but this is how it all started.

I used 1990 Kyosho 2.2 hex drive wheels and 1985 Tamiya Toyota 4x4 Bruiser tires. The rest is all stock, and the chassis was not modified in any way (it would eventually be modified in the following months, though).

Transmission Axles (and the scale boar!) This is how it looked like the next morning Testors paint Checking details Rear view SWEET!

The wheel and tire combo is one of the best I've seen so far, truly sweet!

@Froggy 71: thanks for the positive comment! Unfortunately, I had to sell this Yota years ago.
