      Here is my '00 4runner limited. It's what has been tying up all my money since I sold the mk3 GTI.

      I think i saw pics of this rig in a tire thread on yotatech

      beautiful truck! i have the exact same one. How do you like it? how does she do offroad? i haven't had a chance to do anything fun with mine yet. definitely the best vehicle i've ever owned though

      edit: what kinda gas mileage are you getting? i'm getting just over 13 around town...starting to wonder if something is wrong

      My Tacoma, 1989 4Runner (V6) and what I didn't post are pix of my 22RE black 1984 4Runner. 3 Toyotas, all great trucks.
      The Tacoma was sold last year. The 1984 is now a hauling mule at Killington Ski Area in Vermont. The 1989 was stolen, stripped, vandalized and then relocated. These photos don't reflect my suspension, paint and transmission mods.

      Your truck looks great
      When the 4runner was recovered, it was essentially destroyed. What they couldn't strip, was simlply vandalized.
      Good luck with yours, she's a beauty

      And of course the topless pic.


    8. 11-03-2006 03:08 PM #43
      Damn - I never got mine topless. Always wanted to, but in 6-7 years of 4Runner ownership, I never did
      Nice pix!
      Keep them coming!

      I hated driving my truck in the snow....14.5wide is like nothing i have ever delt with.I was stuck using 2wd all the way home because one of the nuts i got taps my driveshaft and makes some clunking noise...Remember mike the 4runner is in good hands.Its already changed sooo much..I will get you a pic this week.

      I gutted the interior
      got new carpet on the way
      7inches of lift.
      Getting tires and wheels for it as soon as i find wheels i like
      new back seats and front seats.
      Making custom interior pannels for the doors and sides.
      got rid of the flares and am bolting on the bushwacker cut out flares as its painted.
      Motors out bays cleaned and will be painted this week and motor will go out to be bored and head work done.
      Theres more but thats the main stuff happening this month before i move.

      I just bought a 1985 Toyota 4x4 straight axle pickup today. This thing is so clean, not one aftermarket part on it except the wheels and the lumber rack. Bought it off the original owner pictures to follow.
      Still waiting for my GF to wake-up so she can drive over to pick it up.

      Its is an 83 4wd. It just has the 2wd fenders. The thing is unstoppable. He hardly ever puts in 4wd thanks to the bead locks.

      My picture of the 1985 Solid axle truck I bought on Monday. Bought it off the original owner truck is bone stock, never painted its never even had a radio in it. block off plate still in the dash. Zero rot, never wrecked. Came with 20 years of service records. Has a 140k original miles.

      Plans:

      1. Ditch the wheels and install Toyota SR5 alloys.
      2. Install a radio Order an Alpine and Alpine dash speakers along with a stock attenna.
      3. Install Bilstein shocks.
      4. Get rid of the plastic floor and install a factory quality carpet kit along with roadkill.
      5. Line X the bed.
      6. Add power steering, A/C and factory dash clock.
      7. Hella H4's
      8. Find a nicer rear bumper with D rings and a class 3 reciever. (black)
      9. Install an ARB front bumper and Warn winch
      10. Install a rear ARB locker.

      Other than that I'm leaving this truck stock.

      Photo I took of my '95 runner just today.

      Picked it up just to get me and my planes up to the top of the
      continental divide and other similar locales for slope soaring events..

      Trying very hard to avoid turning it into yet another very expensive hobby
      but I'll probably throw a Powertrax No-slip locker in the rear end just
      give me a little more confidence on the trails. Maybe sort out some
      quick release end-links on the sway bars.

      Are you planing on restoring a cruiser?

      If so: coolcruisers.com, sor.com, cruiserparts.net, ebay and ih8mud.com

      Yup. Already been searching for a few things on coolcruisers.com. Thanks for the links.

      I got some pictures this past weekend of my project. I won't be starting until about January, since we won't be moving into our house until Dec. First on the list is replacing the whole brake system (nothing works but the e-brake), putting a new roof on, and getting it running better (sticky float in the carb, etc...). It'll be a working restoration so I can hunt/explore with it. Mostly it needs cleaning/derusting/bodywork. Runs great other than the oil pan full of gas due to the carb issue.

      I just found the 4x4 section on the vortex. I'm new to the toy 4x4 scene but been around mkIII's for a while. Picked this up a month ago. 86 4x4.

      No action shots yet.

      how hard is it to remove the roof from the 4 runner?
      that's a standard thing, not like a hacksaw job, right?

    34. 01-29-2007 05:43 PM #69
      On the 1st gens it's just some screws for the plastic crap and then like 12 bolts. It's kind of heavy, so maybe a two person job.
