Always wanted a 1st gen 4runner - I guess this will do for now

1985 Toyota Pickup 5speed 4x4 equipped with a factory Toyota 2LT turbodiesel engine and 90k original miles.

The honest truth is I had been saving for a Ford 7.3 PSD and came across this and could not pass it up.

This is basically the truck from Top Gear's 'Unkillable Toyota' but with a factory turbo and a lot less miles.

I purchased it almost a month ago and have slowly been cleaning her up and fixing a few things along the way. She was covered in mud when I trailered her home and I still haven't been able to get all the mud off the underside. She'll need a new bed at some point. The bed is actually rusted through at the tailgate side. The frame and rest of the body are actually in pretty good shape. The frame has pretty minimal rust.
She currently has a fuel leak coming from the injection pump. That's certainly not going to keep me from driving her around for a bit before I have it fixed. Will probably just have the pump rebuilt while I've got it off. Will also probably rebuild the front hubs, replace TREs, shocks, and a few other things and then she'll be ready to log some miles!
