Re: Abuse of an \'86 Toyota?
Gotta be careful about hard landings in a stock truck (no matter which stock truck it is).
Anyway, for the Toyota if you don't plan on doing much in the way of making it a full blown desert pre-runner, I would consider at the very least getting a control-arm mount truss. I think you can still get those from Downey.
The rear of the control arm mounts are not trussed. When you bounce it hard (say, jumping) you end up spreading that rear part of the control arm mounts. Eventually it will wreak havoc on your alignment, and may require "frame straightening".
