"It's just parts man, it's not like we're twisting the heads off babies or anything."
Trust me, your not the first to ask: "What the hell is that krawlr thing?"
My truck aka "krawlr" started out as a mildly offroaded 4wd Toyota. (I know, I'm a dork for naming my truck) Soon, thanks to the friggin' internet, my/it's scope changed juuuuuuuust a little bit. It is now a highly modified and very capable rig. Equipped for trail guide, deep woods rescue/recovery, comp support, trail re-opening/clearing, and just plain trail riding. Critical components are protected for "over the hood" water crossings. I also carry a GPS/laptop with route and topo for navigation and trail documentation.
Main modifications: '78 Ford Bronco front axle swap using Duff radius arm suspension and big rig air springs. Rear linked suspension on coil springs. Marlin Crawler gear reduction box attached to a flipped/twinsticked D300 transfer case. ARB locking differentials in both axles with 5.38/5.29 gears.
