My CL ad died, but it's still on OfferUp. (Link below)
I love this truck, but i have an HDJ81, an FZJ80, and a V8 4runner. It's time.
ADD 2" HD kit with all the bells and whistles installed about 6000 miles ago. (Bulletproofed idler built on new oem idler, Siberian bushings everwhere, new OEM balljoints, the beefy boy rear panhard, etc.)
2" 4Crawler body lift
Fresh brakes. (Calipers, pads, replaced the front soft lines, upper and lower, turned front rotors (still plenty of meat)
Freshy fresh oem heater core just installed
Bangin' stereo. (Gutted all oem stuff, built from scratch)
I pulled this truck out of CA. Very minimal surface corrosion underneath, hasn't really progressed in my ownership. Everything comes apart as it should. (I work from home and i don't think i've even put 20k miles on this yet)
Recent gasket/seal/hose/plugs/wires refresh. (Basically everything north of the head gaskets)
Power seat and seat heaters work
Backdated non-airbag dash, including aux gauge cluster (I prefer the earlier compass/temp guage to the later 98-00)
Red LED interior stuff to not trash night vision
Ni-Lite reverse light "conversion"
Timing belt service done ~25k miles ago. I have receipt somewhere
Fresh front bearing set/packing job.
One of the Sway-A-Way torsion bars snapped earlier this week. Josh @ ADD is looking into warranty replacement for me.
Front seats only. (threw 2nd and 3rd rows in the dumpster with intent to build a platform)
Carpets aren't minty. No real bad wear or tears, just need a good steam cleaning, or just plain old replaced. (i was going to replace, i hate tan anyways)
Normal bumps and bruises for a 185k mile truck that was actually used.
I believe i drove in the front wheel seals a little far when doing the bearings.
Has some small leaks still. Oil pan weeps, but isn't leaving spots on the ground, nor is there a huge amount on the skid plates. Same for trans. I check fluids regularly and it hasn't needed a top off between oil changes for me.
Those of you in the Eastern US where these are hard to find.... this is your chance to cannibalize your rusty truck and move to a CA chassis with a bunch of quality (and expensive) bells and whistles without needing to drive 40 hours.
$2500, come and get it. Bring a trailer and wheels. Open to reducing price a couple hundred if i can yoink the stereo out of it to put in my HDJ81.
If i end up messing with replacing the bars, setting height again, re-aligning, and replacing the front wheel seals, $3500 you bring wheels, or $4000 with the 15" wheels wrapped in Nokian MTs from the HDJ81.
