    Suspension Upgrade on a beater 4runner.

    If I had the time, I definitely would. If anyone is selling this sort of stuff, feel free to PM me. I spend the majority of time offshore/away from home and a vehicle. Cost isn't really any issue, and think that the ease of slapping on a new kit is well worth it.

    Because the suspension is old, and has failing components.

    Suspension Upgrade on a beater 4runner.

    That'd be great. I don't want it to be too stiff, I just want to fix the sag...Is there a better way? Where would the best website be to order the OME kit from? Also looking to grab some mud flaps for the front wheels, so i can take the stupid side steps off.

    Suspension Upgrade on a beater 4runner.

    I think I will go with the low lift from OME. How will it impact the driving experience?

    Suspension Upgrade on a beater 4runner.

    3rd Gen 4Runner - Life Inside/Heading West

    Taking a month or so off work, and planning to head West in my '97 4Runner. Looks like I'll do New Orleans, Austin, Colorado, Montana, and loop back toward NYC. Just put new Cooper Discoverer AT3's on, which are extremely well mannered, and a brand new clutch (at 230,000mi). Smooth as butter...

    Tire Order Help

    Going to order tires today, and I think I'm pretty sold on the Cooper Discoverer AT3. Anyone have any good websites where they've gotten a good price/tire? 235/75/r15 is what I'm looking for. Don't really need bigger tires on my '97 4R. Only has the 2.7 and 5spd. Currently located in Newport...

    Trade my '14 4Runner for an '09 unicorn 4Runner?

    I never understand how someone can say a vehicle like that is older or the mileage is mildly concerning...? I drive a '97 4runner with 226,500 miles on it, and I would hop in and drive that thing across the country today. I haven't had a car payment in years. My vehicle costs my 60$/month in...

    4Runner 2.7 clutch replacement

    The time has come to replace my clutch on my unmodified '97 4Runner with the powerhouse that is the 2.7litre. Any suggestions on what to get? I've never done it myself, but will be doing the project myself here at the shipyard. It has the original clutch, at 226,500miles, and I'm not opposed to...

    Front Hitch on a 4R

    Has anyone found a relatively simple solution for putting a front facing hitch on a 3rd gen ('97) 4Runner with a stock bumper? Would be great for boat yard, ramps, etc. Thanks!:costumed-smiley-007
