93 73 series--Got this back in April, flew and drove it 1600 miles back from Houston without a hitch. Its a ZX so it has all the amenities plus oem lockers. 5 speed manual, 1hz diesel. Originally from mainland Japan but has been in the US for about 5 years.

Coming through the high elevation in Colorado i decided that i wanted to give the engine a little more air so when over the next couple months i installed a turbo on it and built a custom turbo back 3 inch exhaust. Put some 315/75r16 tires in place of the 33 bfg km3s and changed some blown OME shocks with some Bilstein's. Designed/ built a custom rear bumper and tire carrier as it didnt have a bumper when i bought it.

Over the summer did a few wheeling/camp trips. Its a pretty capable truck and has plenty of low end power to crawl up stuff.

I still need to install an air pump, build some sliders and finish some other odds and ends.

I changed out the timing belt on this last weekend, fairly simple job took about 40 min. Also replaced the a/c idler pully because it was squeaking like a banshee.

Few pictures from a early September camp trip with a few friends. "Spring" flowers in bloom. The week after this trip it snowed a couple feet in this area.
