    2013 4x4 Tacoma Custom Chinook build in progress

    Very nice indeed. Congratulations on the build and thanks for sharing.

    GVWR sense.

    ... but oddly (to me) never got around to adding matching wheels up front!

    Anyone heard about Toyota Camroad?

    No need for the 'Sorry'. I'm sure we'd help if we knew anything about them.

    Roadside Assistance Recommendations

    On a slightly more serious note, I wonder if they'd tow you to an RV 'place' (who would likely know nothing about old Toyotas) or a mechanical garage (where they might know something about pre-OBD2 Toyotas)?

    I'm curious. Are there any 'Authorized Service Centers' anywhere for Granvilles?

      I don't seem to be able to do anything except check for spammers. I'm good at that but I couldn't find a file or a picture if my life depended on it. Glad your here

    Overall production numbers and how many on the road today

    Overall production numbers and how many on the road today

    Again after researching the market, I guess Toyota thinks there wouldn't be enough demand for their diesels to justify the time and expense to 'North Americanize' the diesels.

    And how much does one of those cost? Compare to the cost of a stripped vehicle that is currently built as a Class B or C? End up with $80k - $100k?

    I'm sure Toyota as market researched the hell out of this question and have come to the conclusion the going the C&C route (like they did in the past) for the North American market isn't going to turn them a profit. What'll they sell? A couple of thousand (a year)?

    Does anyone know anything about this vehicle.?

    You an also search Google by images. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b&sa=X&q=Toyota+FJ+Cruiser&tbm=isch&tbs=simg:CAQSlQEJuoYiZ9Mhtx0aiQELEKjU2AQaAggVDAsQsIynCBpiCmAIAxIohA6CDoMO1hjhGIAO2hjbGOkN2RiPIJwmsCa1JpghgiGmJtoyxSuSIRow6G5NlQNUMCxDlUAflHPjWuHk3ZUXBIwHwZ2odOahezTDD4KrtKAO3yfsOunXp_1JCIAQMCxCOrv4IGgoKCAgBEgRYPdVeDA&ved=0ahUKEwj4sNzj6MnbAhXB6YMKHVj4BDQQwg4IJigA&biw=1252&bih=581 It appears this image has been floating around the net for 2 years.

    The OP hasn't logged in since March 2017. I doubt he'll see your question.

    Anyone Have A Dolphin Ecu (Engine Computer) For Sale?

    I've no problem seeing people who provide good services being mentioned. Maybe try out your refurbished ECU for a few miles before endorsing it! Not the first time I've heard of engine rebuilders not wanting to warranty installations in Toyota Motorhomes. Read the fine print before deciding.
