The S-EXPEDITION, my old 98 supercharged 5.4l expy... man this thing was a beast it had a 4in rancho lift, headers, dynaflow flowmaster, 35 bfg all terrains, heavy duty transgo transmission upgrade and procharger supercharger... all done by the master, ok I did the work Twisted Evil RIP SEXPY

My trusty ol' 86 4runner when first bought it had a chevy 307, carbed with a holley truck advenger carb, 14bolt rear dana 44 front... ran like crap... I got my hands on an 80s tbi and harness installed it in the parking spot my sexpy was parked in the last pic, and it ran like a raped ape... then the head gaskets blew as well as the block cracked while in AZ... kinda got a little hot, Pic was taken in AZ

My solution, bought the ram from some surplus farm store, made the hoses and had the fittings laying around tapped into the steering box for the hyd pressure, converted to high steer and welded it all up with a chicago electric stick welder plugged into my dryer plug, I could not break this setup Twisted Evil I think I spent $80 on this job

My fix for the cracked block and heavyness of a v8, a 4.3l vortec v6 out of a GMC Jimmy, I spent 2 days pulling the wire harness apart learning it and wiring it to work with the ignition on the yota... i still have nightmares about it... suprisingly this had a ton more power than the v8, I could roast those 36 hmmvee tires with that spooled 14 bolt in the back Cool

Climbing a tree in my back yard in GA, with that ram on there I could turn the wheel lock to lock with my ... Laughing

The 91 blazer, this was a monster and I miss this truck the most, has arb air lockers front and rear I still look for it to come up for sale in the states... if I ever find it I am buying it back because I want to put a 4bt cummins in that monster
