Someone has listed an LS swapped 1987 Toyota 4x4 Pickup available to bid now on Bring a Trailer! The 6.2-liter LS3 V8 crate motor is linked with a 4L65-E four-speed automatic transmission and a dual-range NP205 transfer case, which is helpful when heading on off-road adventures. Power is sent to all four wheels through ARB air-locking differentials with 4.88 gears and a Currie 9-inch rear end. And, it's smog legal too!

The truck rides on Bilstein shocks with Wilwood disc brakes behinds American Racing 15-inch wheels with BFGoodrich All-Terrain 33×12.5-inch tires. On-board is a Vintage Air air conditioning system, Dakota Digital instrumentation, and an Alpine head unit with navigation.

A black-finished diamond-plate tool box is mounted in the truck bed and houses the battery and onboard air system. Additional equipment includes a Smittybilt tubular rear bumper, a receiver hitch, a sliding rear window, and mud flaps. Some damage is visible on the front lip.

The auction ends in just three days with the current bid sitting at a respectful $20k.

Someone buy this before I do!

  • Why would you want something that won’t do anything particularly well?

  • If I had the money I’d buy it. Importing to the U.K. would be a pain though, as would being a left hooker. But I’d survive lol
