So over the past month or so I have drug home a couple trailer loads of 1st gen pickups and of course Trekker parts. I am in the beginning stages of the build but my plan is to restore it back to stock with the exception of a small lift and some 32" tires.
I'll do my best to update this thread when I can and I hope to get some advice and suggestions from anybody willing to offer
This is the body that I hope to use
But depending on what I find I might have to use this back half
and this cab
I also brought this home. I bought it for the drive train. Somebody put a lot of time into it before it got written off after getting rear ended. You barely have to touch the key and it starts. The interior is complete and restored.
I also drug home a rolled Trekker cab that was sitting on what I hoped was a solid frame.
The Frame turned out to be awesome. Just waiting to drag it off to the sandblaster
The Trekker Cab had this on the dash
I also picked up brand new, still in the cardboard, doors and fender.
So I'm off to a good start. I'm pretty excited to really get into this project. I have been searching for info and trying to decide on colors and what products to use to restore frame and axles. I think I'll probably go with trail gear springs and axle rebuild kits
sweet .. welcome aboard !! nice score on the frame !
Yeah , Heninger Toyota in Calgary had the Canadian "assembly" rights from Winnebago .. Winnebago shipped all the parts here in crates . They went to a shop in Calgary , where they were assembled . I met the fella that owned the assembly shop at a car show in Kamloops .. talked for hours . He now lives just outside of Salmon Arm .. I have his Ph# , and he said to stop by any time .. I asked him if he had any assembly instructions , or pictures , he said stop by , I wont be disappointed
Hey Guys, thanks for the comments. Yeah I bought everything from Caylen. I lucked out. I've been looking for another project and I already have a 1st gen 4Runner so the Trekker seemed like a really cool and different way to go I am currently in Fort McMurray, this has been home for the past 10 years. Slacker I was looking at your website and will be chasing after you for a few things once I get into the build but one question I have already is about the POR 15 you used for the frame and axles. Are you happy with the results?

yes ... I'm VERY happy with it ... I have done quite a few "test" pieces with the POR as well over the years ... and I am impressed ! I absolutely recommend it , it has my endorsement . I use it all the time in my shop .
I have pretty much everything that is shown . I bought and hauled the trucks from Ft Mac to North Battleford ,Sask about a year ago. I can't find time to work on the project so if anyone is interested get ahold of me at 306-480-9344.
