After spending the past 30 years (literally) wishing initially for a 1982 HiLux, and subsequently a Bruiser, and then inevitably a Mountain Rider, I have come to the conclusion, and have accepted the fact, that I will never EVER be in a position to spend that much money (on what my wife insists is "just a toy").

The question then becomes, what is out there in the way of kits (I HATE rtr) which could possibly be construed as a poor man's HiLux?

One brain fart I had is something like the Axial Score Kit, setup fairly high, with a tiny pinion to slow it down and bias it for torque but I don't know....
