  1. Those are both pretty cool ideas. The challenge I have, and you cannot tell from the photos well, my cab is burnt. No dash, no tach, seats, instrument panels, etc. It is all toast. Even if I could get the backend rebuilt, my biggest headache would be wiring all the electrical.in the dash, let alone finding a new dash, seats, etc. If you know someone who is interested in doing that, what’s left of the rig can be there’s for a steal. I wouldn’t even mind swapping the motor into another 89-94 model pickup, but they seem pretty hard to find at an affordable price with 4wd. If I could get the motor to someone, I’d scrap the rest; even those its the 3.0 v6 and not the 22re, with less than 60k and timing belt replaced and a host of other work, it deserves to be on the road...
  2. Hunkaman, I only had liability on it, so nothing I can do on that end. Our positive was our house is still standing. Being in rural Arkansas, it's a toss up if the firefighters can get to you in time. We only suffered damage to the siding of our house; nothing structural was damaged. And our house propane tank was about 15-20 feet from the inferno, so a few minutes later and we could have leveled the house, including our neighbors...
  3. Thanks rvfigs, I'll be getting back to you shortly.
  4. Derek, I think that is above my pay grade. I wouldn't know where to start, nor do I have the equipment and knowledge to take on a job like that. But if you want to add it to your project list, I bet we could come to an agreement. I have shopped for the same era Toyota pick up to put the motor in, but I haven't been able to find one north of 250k miles that was cheaper than $4,000.
  5. Hi All, New to the Forum and i would have posted in the classifieds, but that section isn't loading for me. Apologies if i violated a forum rule. I purchased my 1990 Toyota Americana in March of 2019. It had a water leak in the back where the fiberglass and subfloor separated and let water in. This was hidden by the carpet under the bathroom sink when we purchased it. Upon repairing, I had disconnected the generator, removed it and began on repairs to generator box as well. The fuel line to the generator leaked overnight and when I returned to the rig the next day and opened the generator box, the fuel/vapors sparked and the RV burned to the ground. Sadly, we only drove the rig about 150 miles from where we purchased it to our home. That being said, we had some parts that were pulled out of the rig before it burned and some others that the fire didn't appear to damage. See below of items for sale: 2.8 Onan Microlite gasoline generator. It had less than 30 hours run time according to the rig before it went up in smoke. My uncle was able to get the generator to run. It was not in the rig when it burned. $1,000 OBO Aqua Magic IV RV toilet. $30 OBO Horizontal Propane Tank. Visual Requalification completed 8/16 (See pic). Manual is toast, but I believe it is a 20#/ 5 Gallon tank. $70 OBO 1990 Toyota 3.0 3VZ-E with Approximately 60,XXX miles I purchased it at 59,XXX. The fire was put out before it got through the firewall. I have service records from Toyota 2015 and 2016 for most of the work that was done including, Oil and oil filter, engine coolant flush/fill, Fuel system Service (EFI Kit), Spark plugs, wires, (R&R (Standard) not sure what R&R is...), Brake system flush, timing belt replaced, drive belt replaced, water pump replaced, distributor cap replaced, all done in 2015. 2016 the fuel pump was replaced, along with oil and oil filter and air filter being changed in March 2019 by me before I bought it. The rig would start on first try and wasn't smoking. It ran very smoothly and given the low mileage and being able to verify these services, this is why I decided to purchase it. $1,500 OBO. If I had the cash on hand to purchase an old Toyota pickup, I'd swap the motor and put it in there. Transmission can be sold as well if needed with the motor. We can negotiate a deal for both. 1 ton axle: I believe it is a full floating 1 ton and the Duallys with 6 lug. To my knowledge, they are OEMa and not aftermarket or swap. The tires on it are also in good shape from what I can tell. I don't see any physical signs of stress from the fire or melt on them. I'm asking $650 OBO for the axle. Feel free to ask me questions. The rig is in North Central Arkansas on the Arkansas/Missouri border. I've included some pics of the parts I listed. It would of made a great rig and my wife and child were looking forward to getting it on the road this month....
