Figured I would throw this over here. This year's EC4RJ is June 25-27 at Rausch Creek in PA. More details to follow. This is the 10th year, so it should be a good one.

What is this?

East Coast 4Runner Jamboree.

One of the, if not biggest Toyota run of the year for us. It's always a good time and there is usually a lot of people that show up and wheel/camp all weekend.

Plus it's the 10th year and the planners are trying to go big. IIRC they are actually trying to get magazine photographers to come as well. :D

also isn't the front going to be lowered with the coils in the front instead of leafs?

rocktoy87

yeah the front is getting 3 linked, the rear is sitting on a pair of front rubi springs and alittle different link set-up;)

Rodge

I'll let Jordan speak for himself...don't want to steel his thunder. Let's just say this 4Runner should be pretty bad ass when it's finally done. Definitely a whole different rig than what you guys are use to seeing as well as him use to driving.

He's going to have to learn how to drive all over again...not like he was any good to start with. :lmao:

It is open to all Toyotas and you can be completly stock to totally built. Groups are formed based upon lthe level of ability of driver and truck.

Bump!
What the status with Peeps?
Andy, Hows your Runner Coming?
Jordan, How about yours, end of june is coming really quick!

I currently am waiting on my diff.
But by the time 6 weeks are up the truck will be riding 4wd.
Have a better rear tire carrier,
maint stuff like timing belt, water pump, and brakes all around.

I am stoked since this will be my maiden Voyage since the disaster of wellsville.

i have heard good and bad things on 4xxInnovations.
give them a call? sometimes they get backed up

Yeah, I am starting to get concerned. When I first called he said it wouldn't take long to bend one up, which was right after I rolled. Then when I placed my order a few days later he said that he had some other parts that were on his schedule to build, but would be able to bend my cage on May 10. I pm'd him on Wednesday or Thursday to see what the status was so that I can line things up with my family, schedule and my cousin who hads a 220 welder, and he said that he was working as quickly as possible on things. I wasn't sure what that meant so I asked if anything has been bent or even started. As I am planning on taking the Thursday and Friday before Memorial Day off to work on the 4 Runner. That was this past Thursday and I have yet to hear back from him, yet he has been on the message boards.

I really wanted to have this project done as quickly as possible and in speaking with him that wouldn't have been a problem. Now I am worried since we are a little over a month away from this event and I have several other modifications/fixes that I need to complete and need the cage installed to do them.

Hopefully it works out, but something tells me I will be thrashing on this thing up until it goes on the trailer the Thursday of the event.

I will probably have an open seat unless Andy does not get his 4 Runner done as my cousin is not going to be able to make it.

I'll have an open seat as well, unless Andy isn't done and wants to ride with me, though I don't know, maiden voyage out, I might loose my rear diff next :P

I had heard he sometimes was slow, but when I told him what my schedule was and he said that he would be able to have one bent up within a week, I figured I would be good since I ordered well in advance of EC4RJ. We shall see.

Sorry to hear that Mark, would have liked to wheel with your and the 4 Runner. How was that motor you got from me?

Im going to hit the 4runner hard this weekend. Molly is going to the beach with some coworkers. I will have all day Friday and Saturday.

I did get the driver firewall welded up. Id like to get the other wheel wells finished and drop the t-case and stick in the crawler this weekend. That would be a good start. I have a new gas tank on order:rolleyes: to cut in half and shorten.:saw::welder:

I think It will be ready. maybe not Inspected. but that wont stop me. Ill just make a apointment before I drive it up and tell the cops the truth, that I have a apointment scheduled.

Hell you should be able to get it done with that much free time :)

My cage is coming this weekend, so I will be really busy over the next two weeks. I also need to pull my t-case crossmember, because I think I may have cracked my rear case from the roll - some how there is still gear oil dripping :( Time to really clean the underside up.

Due to some.... unforseen circumstances and sheer lack of funds the 4Runner will be staying 2wd till at least NE Takeover....

I can ride with you Saturday, but I wanted to hit up Friday too,
however, if the trucks not ready, I can just work that Friday instead of skip class and work.

I will probably drive up on my own just in case ;-)

Just what the hell is that supposed to mean?!? :) I'm not planning on going into any water or mud this time around! Maybe once you get yours going again we can take ol red up and I'll give it another shot but I think the 4Runner likes the dry land a little better.

LOL, well lets see the oil light is on at idle
Which I guess I should look on TIS and see if I can diag and fix that easily for you.
and yeah who knows what else could fail, like a front diff.... or a clutch................

Once I get mine up the DAY it becomes 4WD if its a firday night I am calling off a Saturday and heading up to Rausch.

Yeah No Frog Hole for you this time around....

I changed the oil on Tuesday and the light hasnt been since. The clutch would be fine if someone knew how to drive a stick shift! I think the front diff will be alright considering its only been wheeled hard 1 time.
