Sabaton is my favorite band. Love their ballads and historic themes!
I love the way they did this one, guaranteed to make some Communist's heads overload:

Getting motivated to finish this project. It's a 1986 4Runner SR5 that belongs to my son. The color is the new Army green Toyota is putting on their 2020 trucks and 4Runners. Finally time to start putting it back together. He said he wants to try to have it done this summer so he can use it for camping. I told him NFW, if you want to go camping take my Tahoe or my truck. The hard top, step bars and bumpers were done in black Rhino Liner. We have already had a bunch of people that saw it in the shop try to buy it.

That vehicle makes an excellent off roader. Taking it camping is what it's meant for. As long as you have confidence in the mechanicals, it should never let you down. I see the after marker front hubs. Very good choice. I hope you get it done soon. That truck needs to be on the road.

p.s. I really like Toyota 4runners.

When did that get canceled? I have tickets for the San Antonio date in October!
No idea. Shows on their tour site jump from August to November. I hadn't got tickets yet cause I wasn't sure if I wanted to. Who plays a show in Salt Lake City on a Sunday? Last time Sabaton came it was a packed Monday show with families (multiple 6 yr olds were there that were pointed out by Joakim). https://www.sabaton.net/tour/

I once had tickets for Brain Candy live with Adam Savage and Micheal from Vsauce. Didn't find out that it was canceled til we showed up for the show. Never got an email or anything. Only way I was sure was my money was refunded to my account. Never heard why it was canceled either.

I agree they are awesome vehicles for camping. This one has way too much time in the paint and body work to run out boonie whacking right now. My bodyman spent way too much time blocking this before paint. The panels are so straight and flat they look wet once the paint was color sanded and buffed. The 22RE is as close to bullet proof as a 4cyl gets. Once it is complete and on the road I will post some more pictures.

BTW, I really like the 1st gen 4Runners as well. I just made an offer on 2 more this morning, but haven't heard back from owner yet.

Bulletproof?

Ask any older Toyota mechanic how many headgaskets they've done.


They're not bad, but they're underpowered and not nearly as bulletproof as the internet would have you believe. They just make so little power it's not possible to tell when they're running shitty...
