1986 4runner

I am looking for a 1986 4runner. Preferrably with the v6. Anyone have one?

I think the first year of the v6 was also the last year of the solid axle. I remember this from my old days of 4runner worship. Whether the year was 86 I cant remember.. I'll search.

85 was the last year of the SA. 86 was the first year of IFS. You don't want the V6. Too many blown head gaskets. Stick with the 4cyl.

Not my style but nice. The only other thing I would find out is . .. does it have a crawler. If you are going to spend 10k on something 20 years old, it needs to be done.

That sure is a lot of miles for a V6 motor.

no crawler. But it has a full cage and many other unique features. He sais he can go down a little, what should I offer him?
200k on the odo is a lot, realistically, would I be opening a can of disgusting worms? What is the average cost to put a new motor in?

I saw it, and am liking it. I asked in there if hed take 1000 off so I could have it shipped. Some things I really like about this one, the goofy paint aside, are the internal rollcage, and the 12" bob...

But I agree, andy's is lookin mighty fine!

It's your money, but I wouldn't buy it. You will be rebuilding that V6 soon and with no crawler, why even bother.

I offered the guy $7000 and he is thinking on it. I think with the money I would save I could afford to do an engine swap. How much is it to put a crawler in?
