He's back!

And I'm back!

Picked this up last night.


1998 4Runner 4x4 auto w/ 158k miles
255/85/16 Maxxis Bighorns
4xInnovations Sliders
PO's rear bumper
Toytec coil overs
OME 890s
Aussie Locked rear

Immediate needs are a DD from Cleveland to Chattanooga which this isn't quite a good option for currently. But since it'll only have to serve for 1-2 years I picked it up with intentions of modifying it for DD life a little

Plan is to crank the coil overs down to 0" and swap out the rears with a factory set I have access to. Then trade the 255s for a set of 265/70 for daily driving. Then the maintenance to get it reliable starts...
Lower and Upper Ball Joints, replace busted CV, front brakes, sway bar end links
Rear axle seals, bearing, rear brakes
Engine Tune up with plugs, wires, etc.



Hoping to find the time to make it to SETO in it.

Sounds like a bunch of maintenance to catch-up on. Hopefully you got a good deal on it.

The price negated the list of maintenance so it was worth it to me. Time is my biggest hurdle with it.

Nope, no red here. And thanks, I'm hoping to have it all back together sometime next week after I'm able to source a few junk yard parts (CV, misc plastic trim pieces, brake line)

He's back!

Well since there's not a whole lot going on other than SETO and my thread is in the off topic, I can put whatever I want in here. Finally got it finished and running the way I want. Got the gas mileage up from 12 to 20 mpg after it was all said and done.

Had to add a radiator to the list since it fell off the jack stands while trying to swap out the rear coils and one of the jack stands bent the front cross member and put a hole in said radiator. What a fun evening that was...

Next few steps are pretty simple and aren't near as important as the maintenance I did, so they're not being rushed...
Some AT tires, the ones I picked up should last me till winter
New hood, this oxidation is getting on my nerves
Cut off and weld in a new front cross member
Cut the rear bumper off
99+ Center Console

9/2016 was the last post on here? Forums really have died. Well because I'm a photo whore, I'll throw something out there. I did a thing this weekend...

I have the lift sitting in the garage, and I need to invest in a skid plate sooner rather than later. And focus on my battery and wiring. I just thought this thing was going to stay completely DD oriented. Why did I even kid myself?
