Good to see it moving! I know mine flat moves in the top end with a 12t clutch and if I remember correctly a 68t sprocket, on 18" tires, accelerates decent and tops out somewhere around the 45-50mph range, may be better if I had a smoother road, but it'll do. Good job dingocat!

Lookin' good. Fine work.
I like your Toyota truck and am looking for a similar year and vintage.

I'd kinda like to see a return to gold wheels on that Dingo. Your choice though.

I'm definitely re-doing the gold on the FL250 Ody that I acquired.

Toyota with Dingo. At welding. No school in the afternoon. Do have an inch of snow on the ground already.

Nice

That toyota looks pretty clean for NE ohio, most of them are rusted beyond repair. Salt belt survivor.

Frame is fully intact (now) and I don't have any holes in my body except for the bed floor itself and my tailgate.
It's really salty though. 30 miles or so every day.

I can confirm, it's deep

I got the sled out, almost got stuck in the backyard , then did a top speed run down the road (if I did not break 60mph it was close).

I wouldn't dare bring the kart out, maybe you need to invest in some paddle Tires and skis?

That would be a sweet conversion or one with halved sled tracks turned into a Mattracks style?

What would be cooler is if you had skis with tires in them hanging about an inch lower, like some planes up north. Then you wouldn't need to swap them out every winter and spring.

I want the porch to ice over! Then, ICE BURNOUTS! And donuts, too!
But alas, we rarely get snow/ice here in Texas, just freezing cold, bitter, knife edged winds.

Actually I have....but it is just pretty rare here in SA. When we really get cold winters, there is snow on the mountains about an hourr away from my place, and I have gone with my daughter once or twice to "play" in it

I also went Skiing in Austria many years ago
