1992 Toyota SR5 4×4 Pickup

Having owned the 1992 SR5 4×4 I can personally attest to how amazing these trucks were, and probably still are. They weren’t even close to being the fastest or even considered fast at all really. Mine had the optional V6 engine versus the inline four cylinder that had been standard for years previous. But one thing about those motors though, they were very powerful engines with what seemed to be never-ending torque. Once you shifted that transfer case into low gear, you all the sudden had enough grunt to get you up and over just about anything you came across. Especially if you had the SR5, which stood for Sport Rally 5 speed, because it had that 5-speed manual transmission. Anytime I was out playing in the mountains and things started to get a little tricky, i’d switch the transfer case into 4 low, pull the gear shift down into second gear, and put my foot to the floor. I called it my climbing gear and only on the most severe of situations did it let me down.
