  1. So, hey guys.New to the forum,but not new. been lurking for a while to get ideas. My lady and I got a stock 78 toyota chinook (early) Newport, and drove the s*** out of it, down through mexico, and the mountains of CO. The engine died on us a year after her resurrected glory (re-did the interior and put a weber on, rear seals, etc, etc) Anyway, since it is now dead, instead of spending 3k on a rebuilt 20r, I have found a rolled 91 extra cab (SR5). Runs great, very well maintained for $900. I am now in the process of taking the cab and bed off in the hopes to put the whole 78 shell and cab of the Newport on. Here are some photos of both: I'd love any feedback from anyone, but certainly from other cab swapper/chinook fabricators out there. I can use just about all I can get. not actual, but same model/yr - will get some pics of interior/etc soon: actual 91 extra cab: Thanks
  2. I found this photo with a custom toyota FJ Cruiser Chinook. Someone has done a wonderful job with this build in my opinion. It looks to me like a 78 Chinook cabin attached somehow to a Toyota FJ Cruiser. I think that it is absolutely awesome! I would love to see more of it.
  3. Ok guys. I need tires for my chinook Newport. It has 14 inch rims in front, and 15s in the rear. Currently on the front is a oddball size- 27x8.50R14 Rears are 235/75/15 He has load range D all terrain goodyears on the back right now. I can't seem to find a load range D anywhere online. Only light truck tires with 108 load rating. The fronts I can't find load range D at all! Will 185r14 fit in front? Do you think the all terrain tires that are on it now are slowing me down a noticeable amount? What should I do? Haha
  4. Hi all! So excited and happy that this forum exists, I have been all over the web to find resources about Chinooks to self-educate. I'm a 30-yr-old lady who just bought a Newport model. Are there any other active RV/Chinook/motorhome forums that you like? I wanted some advice: After doing all that reading, I'm worried about my back axle breaking. Should I be worried? It's the original 5-lug. according the the title she weighs in at 3,450 lbs. Do you have any advice for me as a new owner? Anything I should watch out for, rip out right away, absolutely leave alone etc? The inside is in pretty good condition for 37 years old, but i plan to take out the carpeting and reupholster the cushions.
