Quit hatin on yotas.
Find me a place a stock 97 wrangler can go a stock 97 FJ80 can't. For every 1, I'll find 3 the opposite. The 'option' of lockers on those solid axles was which locker, several choices existed. Front and rear. Toyota has done plenty to further our, OUR, offroad fun. So has Jeep. As owners, can't we come together for the common fun? Would you not go on a trail run if it wasn't Jeep exclusive? Or just if they took off the doors?
IMO as a previous yota owner (couple, actually, so a double jerk?), that is a nice rig. Very nice. Doors or not.
But we can ALL bash on these guys, right?

|OmniscientHiers||To each their own, I prefer American made, but some of the Toyotas I've seen look pretty sweet. The other day I saw a late 90s (maybe 98?) Camaro with the doors off...|

|Aleater||In our club we have a lot of makes and models. I can think of a lot of times I was glad that old heavy f250 was there.... the hole was deeper then I thought and no body had to get wet when it was cold to hook to me. Stand in tje bed and back in. I use the lifted toyota in the grouo with the crazy looking homemade snorkel as a depth finder too..... just sayin.|

|ArmyWrangler2012||Now that is awesome. I want one! I also wish they sold the Toyota Helix here. Seen a few in Texas and Arizona but nowhere else.|

This is the only toyota I consider a true match for wrangler. Back when I lived in venezuela these were the "wranglers" that dominated south america , they had better torque and HP than wranglers and solid axles front and back. You could smack and crash these suckers and they would last forever. For years I've been trying to find one here in the states that wont cost above $50K with 0 luck

Keeping public lands open to the public should be our main focus, not who is driving what.
We all need to stick together, tread lightly, and educate others to do the same.

|Klereue||As someone who owns a Wrangler and an 86 4Runner with a soft top, I've spent a lot of time on Yota forums and I have no idea where some of you are getting this idea that yota drivers hate on Jeeps so much, it's just not true.|

The only thing I would say is bad about that Toyota is the lack of rollbar/cage. I like the look with the tube doors and it looks like he has spent some time and money building it.
It has nothing to do with Jeep envy and thinking that way is just crazy.
Shoot I'd wave to him if I passed him driving down the road. Life is short so why waste energy on bashing a nicely built Toyota.

|ArmyWrangler2012||I am considering buying one of the old taco's and doing the same thing. I miss the truck bed for utility reasons and hauling. Having a trailer hitch and a trailer just doesn't give the same benefits.|

|Cole Noah||My main reason for posting was to get back at the majority of toyota guys and have some laughs. All fun and games never meant to offend anyone Lol|

They used a Hilux for the same reason they drop pianos on Morris', because they are plentiful and cheap.
For the record the next truck I buy will be a Titan, and my best friend has a '03 Taco I work on happily (she has never taken her doors off though), but Toyota guys hate on Jeeps WAY more than Jeep guys hate on Toyotas, just look at the forums and you'll see that.

|KBR97||Some people would argue that Toyo's are just as capable if not more capable than a jeep.|
|04-30-2013 07:54 PM|
just kidding! I see stuff like this here in Georgia, too. I look at this way... Someone, like myself, chooses to ride in something that affords them a lot of fun off the road. Us rednecks got different tastes and likes just like anyone else.
I'd ride with him anytime.
Unless he's a Bama fan.

And based on year of that vehicle and time/money owner has in it I am sure they could have afforded same year Wrangler.
It's not like Wranglers are G-wagons where can get pompous on price. I'm sure it's a fun vehicle to piss around here. I don't think the owner would try and say its the best for rock crawling or anything

|fan of fanboys||I know they're are worse forums out there but this is by far most sensitive forum I've ever seen. Most are good people but high volume of sensitive cry babies. Love to see some of y'all in real life to see how act in person.|
