    86 4Runner build

    This is a build up I can get behind. I have a 87 4Runner with a 22re that I am starting to build. I was thinking of building a custom jerry can holder that works with the spare tire winch to hold the two cans where the spare sits and then building a custom rear tire carrier.

    1st Year a manual trans was offered in 4Dr Taco

    Not offered But I prefer an auto off road any day of the week. I own both and have done plenty of heavy wheeling. On a slope or rocks an auto makes life much easier. I like to think I have a third leg :) But in real life its only good for one thing and thats not working a clutch.:(
