I picked up my 88 Toyota 4Runner just over 2 years ago and it has been a great rig for me.  It’s given me a lot of great opportunities to travel and meet a bunch of good people. Some of the modifications included:

  • Solid Axle Swap
  • Dual Transfer Cases
  • Lockers
  • Rear Drive Line Disconnect
  • Roll Cage
  • Bigger Tires

I competed in all 2016 Western Series W.E. Rock events but one  and multiple other rock crawling competitions.  I also raced the Dirt Riot Mountain Series and took 2nd in Series.

Since then, I’ve started parting out the 4Runner so I could put all my time, money and effort into building my new Jimmy’s buggy.

I picked up my Jimmy’s chassis a few months ago and have been collecting parts ever since.
The parts I currently have are:

  • Jimmy’s Chassis
  • GM 6.0 V8
  • Turbo 400 Transmission
  • Ford Super 60 Front Axle
  • 14 Bolt Rear Axle
  • Jazz Fuel Cell
  • International Scout 800 Body for Body Panels
  • And some other small miscellaneous items.

My goal for the new buggy is to race it in the Dirt Riot Races and someday I hope to race KOH (King of the Hammers) and some other Ultra4 races. It’s going to be a slow build, but it will be worth it in the end.

    Gonna see Roundy at WE Rock Rausch in 2018? Makes me want to find a spotter for my yota and beat it up.
