Ok, why is one the one you love and/or one the one you love to hate? What do you see as being a advantage or disadvantage with each? Lets just compare the Ranger to the 89-95 Toyota truck or the Tacoma, or even the Ford 4x4 to Toyota 4x4.

You can do alot with the 4wd beams. Ive seen some 4wd rangers and F150's go pretty fast.

one word, FORD! the perfect reason why rangers suck! Just kidding but i love my tacoma and i know tons of guys whos toyotas have been going forever! Im sure there are some rangers that have lots of miles but I think toyotas in general last. Really I dont care, I would take a built ford in a heartbeat but I just like toyotas, maybe someone can tell me why i like toyotas besides the fact that i have one. I do like the a arm setup better for handling purposes but im sure if done right rangers can handle well. I dont know im tired, if i think of something better then ill post it.

But how much $ does that run? Looks expensive as to where you can get a toyota 4x setup for around 3200 or so i think, of course not as nice (no bypass and whatever) but that explorer is pretty cool, I guess its all about how much you want to spend.

Well that just goes to prove a point....Toyota's can pull 22" with 4WD no problem even a while ago and the Herbst on their FORD seemed to have problems pulling 22"-24" with their unlimited budget lol

yeah that EXPLODER is Very nice and very unique, but how many are out there besides yours? Especially those with off the shelf kits. what i ment is that there is not a whole lot you can do being an avereage consumer.

Hey Jerry are those 4WD F-150 beams, or stock ones or extended ones or what? I am wondering how you get 20" out of stock if those are stock. Is it easy, and is that a kit of yours that is or will be for sale?

I was wondering if your 4Runner is still running and racing? And why is it a P.O.S? I have an '87 4Runner and it still runs well. So can you also tell me some more information about your 4Runner. Please

How much would that cost if I brought in a 4wd Explorer and said " Hey Jason, do the exact same thing to mine".

Would it cost more then the Tacoma kit? If not i'm trading my Toyota in! :)
