Hey everyone. My name is Jeff and I currently live in Topeka, KS. Hopefully moving to Niwot the beginning of the year though. I was born in Colorado and lived there till '98 when I moved here, now I'm just wanting to go home :D

My truck is an '88 4Runner with the beloved 3.0L and a 5 speed. Unfortunately its just sitting right now. The engine needs some work and the steering needs to be rebuilt. I have an 8" 4.88 Lockrite 3rd for my baby, just waiting for a front 4.88 locked or unlocked, whichever shows up first ;). I'm also trying to figure out if I should move up to 33's, or stick with 31's to help the gears compensate for the Colorado altitude; any suggestion?

Future mods are pretty simple. Besides gears and tires I plan to get Addicted Off Road bumpers and sliders, along with some Budbuilt skids. And of course there's that solid axle we're all doomed for haha :welder:

Here's some pics of my truck from when she was running. . .

Howdy. I loved my 88 (p/u). Should have never sold it.

I wish I had 5.29's for my 33's here at altitude ... but then my pig is HEAVY.
That's kinda what I was worried about :(. I'd love to move up to 33's but I hate to start my search for a locked rear 5.29, plus I got a great deal on my 4.88.

How heavy is your truck?

Idk, I don't mind a slow truck I guess. I have a lead foot so to my right foot it feels like I'm flying, but to the speedo I'm still trying to get up to speed. I guess I'll just keep the 4.88's and see how they do with 33's and if I don't like it then I can sell them and pick up some 5.29's or 31's :)

5020 lbs with me in it and a full tank
Wow, that is heavy. Last time I had my Runner up at Bandimere it weighed 3850 or so with me in it, don't remember how much gas. Ran 23.21 @ 57 mph though. :D

Welcome to the new guy!

Hmm...I thought Doris was one of the slowest trucks in this club, but I think she could probably pull that. Granted, its definitely one of the lightest rigs in this club too. Not sure on the actual numbers of the weight or the 1/4 mile however.

I think I'm down on power, even more than a regular 22RE. That plus the heavy 31's and stock gearing just wasn't a good combo.

We should do a CoTTORA drag racing event next season, maybe on a Wednesday T&T or a Club Clash or something. It'd be entertaining to say the least. :D

quoted to make sure it sticks around! lol so many people said 5.29's was way too much when i went that route, and now everyone seems to be seeing the light.



Welcome OP.



I don't think a 22r(e) is going any faster than 25 in the 1/4 on 37s lol. Everything feels a lot faster on the street, when you get to bandimere it seems like that 1/4 mile stretch is a mile long. I'm in for a cottora showing at bandimere though, I'll partake in the fun :p ;)

5.29's? Pshaw! Tippy's 5.71's were perfect for her tall ass overdrive and 35's (But she is/was an auto)

If we still had the old 85 runner, we might have had a shot at slowest. :rofl:
That would be wicked awesome.

And welcome OP!
