Hello everyone, Ive recently purchased a 78’ Sunrader knowing nothing about them really. I’ve only owned Toyota’s so I’m familiar with the truck. My plans include: 4x4 conversion, motor swap, pull the camper and deal with any rust before I start the interior remodel. I have gutted it due to a leaky roof and water damage which will need some attention. I’ve done some research now and have seen quite a few different models. The short short ones like mine that I’ve seen all have the door in the far back with the flip up panel. And I believe they don’t have a shower.. Does anyone have
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 s
Hello All, Forgive me if I didn't search deep enough into the forums to undercover an existing thread on this (link please). But I've been looking at some late 80s Sunraders and being able to go off-road is a must. My first thought is to drop the Sunrader on the drive train of a 4Runner (axles, tranny, transfer case) provision drive shafts etc... What I am not considering with this in mind? Are their any other thoughts on accomplishing this? Also, I'm guessing I would need about $12k for the donar and labor. I am pretty handy, but I'd elect to leave all of actual work to a true professional.
