    Howdy all. I'm in North Carolina. Recently got my first Toyota pickup. It's an 82 with 4wd. I purchased it locally from the 2nd owner. I also know the original owner. It was bought new here in town, has less than 100k on it, and all of the receipts and manuals. Unfortunately it also came with all of the bed rust. I will try to get some pics up soon.

    Welcome. Hopefully your new truck loves you back like all my Yotas have! Pretty cool you know the owners and can get history of your rig. Sounds like a flatbed is in your future :drunk:

    The bed isn't horrible. They used a lot of bondo on the sides. I think I will build a flatbed. I built some nice sloping side gates for a VW singlecab, and I think the design would look good on this truck. I will just do dropgates all around to keep it accessible. It was a shop truck for the local hardware store when new. Then used for the past 17 yrs to get from one end of the farm to the other.

    I know night pics aren't the greatest. Here are a couple anyways. For some reason the photo program cropped them and turns the interior pic sideways no matter how I rotate the picture.
