YotaTech‘s Five Cool Reddit Finds of the Week

By -

Toyota Tacoma Rockcrawler

Rockcrawlers, chair-carriers, and old-school Hilux quad-cabs are among the things we found in r/ToyotaPickup this week.

Every once in a while, we at YotaTech find ourselves looking through Reddit to find the coolest items related to Toyota trucks and SUVs, with the aim of presenting them to all of you.

This week, we found five such things, all in r/ToyotaPickup.

Let’s start with the above, described by poster KiloIndiaNovGolf as the “Grind Hard Plumbing Co. Crunchy Taco.” The Tacoma is owned by YouTube channel Grind Hard Plumbing Co, who has their own subreddit, r/GrindHard.

Toyota Hilux Chair Carrier

This Hilux, crossposted by Tired_Thumb from r/IdiotsInCars, is working really hard hauling what appears to be an entire restaurant’s worth of tables and chairs down the highway. That is one hell of a balancing act, but if any truck can handle it, it’s a Hilux.

Toyota Hilux Double Cab

Over in New Zealand, this Hilux Double Cab owned by Is_that_right_44 has a V8 swap with intake throttle bodies popping out of the hood, and a slammed stance for cruising low and slow on the street.

Toyota Truck

Back here in the United States, donttakemeseriously69 and his dad received a ’79 Truck from the Redditor’s grandfather, which had “a ‘camo’ paint job” when it first arrived. It has a five-speed manual, which he says ’79s didn’t have originally, and the frame is in good shape.

Toyota Truck with Metal Cow Skull

Finally, this Truck found by KnewdIrection will make everyone sleepless in Seattle, thanks to the big metal cow skull welded onto the hood. The patina and drab green paint with black wheels are a nice touch to this little pickup.

A graduate of The Evergreen State College Class of 2005 with a bachelor's in liberal arts, Aubernon took a left turn from fashion writing into the automotive realm when she asked a fellow writer via Facebook if she could write for their site. Following an internship, stints with a couple of hyper-local online publications, and a move to Seattle, she made her then-biggest impact with The Truth About Cars, writing full-time for the publication from 2013 to 2015.

Currently, the highly-regarded automotive journalist is a frequent contributor to the high-traffic Internet Brands Auto Group websites Rennlist, Club Lexus, LS1Tech and Mustang Forums, among others.

Aubernon’s expert knowledge of all things Ford trucks has also made her a mainstay as one of the most prolific writers on Ford Truck Enthusiasts and F-150 Online.
