    Advice/decision

    A lot of the 80's are getting to the point where they have their own laundry list of things to fix. So it is probably not a matter of buy an 80 and things will be ok. Decide what you really want. If other than the issues, you really want a 62, then start fixing and modding. If what you...

    Considering 3rd Gen 4Runner...Advice?

    Well, despite having a general preference for a SR5, I found a price competitive 2000 Limited with E-Locker, and if it is as advertised, I will be coming home with it this weekend (it is in Texas). I think my wife will like the Limited more, and that is a plus because I want her to travel...

    FS 1999 Toyota 4runner Highlander Black $8,750

    If I had seen this a few days earlier, I would have been asking about more than the springs, but I have a deposit on one in Texas. Nice truck, though, and good price.

    FS 1999 Toyota 4runner Highlander Black $8,750

    Any chance you still have the original Highlander springs sitting around?

    Slow build of the 4runner

    Ok, thanks. I think the one that I saw happen in person had closer to 200K. But, I was curious since I am shopping for a 3rd gen, and the only vehicle I have ever seen bust a ball joint in such a spectacular fashion was a 3rd gen, and now this makes two. But thinking this is mere coincidence...

    Slow build of the 4runner

    This is the second time I have seen this specific to the 4Runner. Is this something that is kind of a known issue here, or just fluke incidences? Also, how many miles were on yours when they failed. The other one I saw in person, I believe it was a higher mileage truck. What is the...

    Considering 3rd Gen 4Runner...Advice?

    I can live with that. Was hoping that would be the case. I don't want to re-gear, and 4:10's are a lot better than what could be under there. Again referring back to my Taco, it was locked, but I think it was a 4:10 if I recall, but it's been a few years. Even with 33's, I was ok with the...

    Considering 3rd Gen 4Runner...Advice?

    Regarding the 3.4, altitude sure does make a difference. My '04 Taco was two different trucks from Arkansas to Arizona. It could barely keep it's breath when we were over 5,000 feet. With the 255's I was running, it was kind of gutless. But back down in Arkansas, it did fine. Another...

    Considering 3rd Gen 4Runner...Advice?

    Cool, thanks. That just solidifies my decision of a 99-00 SR5. I want to keep it on the simpler side. Regarding the axle, since it is less common to find the locker in the SR5, as mentioned above, I fully expect to have to add an ARB. I seem to remember hearing that the non e-locker axles...

    Considering 3rd Gen 4Runner...Advice?

    What are you referring to as multi-mode transmission? I may know what it means by calling it something different, but not sure. I have already narrowed my search down to 99-00, but the locker is something I would let slide if the price was right, because I could add an ARB. I prefer the SR5...

    Taco Regearing cost?

    Are the rear axles with the locker the same in the Taco and 4Runner, or different?

    Taco Regearing cost?

    Just a slight deviation from topic, but anyone have the idea on cost if you are happy enough with gears, but wanted to install an ARB air locker in the rear only. Would the cost be the same (labor wise) as if switching gears, or would it be less if they were just putting in the locker? For...

    Considering 3rd Gen 4Runner...Advice?

    The timing chain and water pump has me worried some so far as the search goes. If I find one with 100K+ but can't verify for certain that it has been done, but is otherwise a good deal...do I walk, or buy, knowing a several hundred (or more?) dollar shop visit is in my future. Have my eye on a...
