I'm on the eve of dumping my 1997 Civic this week for a 1987 Toyota SR5 Standard cab 5 speed turbo 4x4. Maybe I'm losing it

Ha, no way. For some reason, I thought all the Turbo models were auto only? Maybe just for 4runners. I've I had the urge to pick up a 1st gen 4runner for awhile. Have fun. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I did not believe this guy either until I saw pictures of the truck. He claims to be the second owner. I can't wait to see if we can work a trade out. He wants a commuter car and I want a Toyota 4x4 it looks like it might happen http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

FINALLY!!!!!

Had this since May, mainly got it for the beach but we have had it in the mts. Still totally stock so we aren't too adventurous in the mts. Going to GWNF in a couple weekends to meet up with the FJ Trail Team. Got 7K on the odo already.

Re: Lets see Toyota 4x4 trucks (packthis)

Here's mine, it's not nearly as faded as that pic makes it look.


Mostly stock except for the 31" ProComp Xterrains, All-Pro rear bumper, and BudBuilt Crossmember and skid plate.
I've got some used lift springs going on it at some point. I've just patched up the little bit of rear fenderwell rust there was, came out fine for a mostly-trail rig. Hoping with the springs and some trimming I can stuff 34x10.5-15 Swamper LTB's under there. keep it low as possible.
I need to do something about gearing. It's barely adequate on 31's, I'm actually looking for some (stock size) 225's for street use to make it more manageable on the highway.
I'm deciding between just stuffing the Tcase with Marlin Low Gears or doing a double Tcase with new driveshafts. I'm also keeping my eye out for used third members with 4.56's or 4.88's in them already.
This is my second 85 4r. I've also owned and wheeled a 1st Gen Isuzu Trooper, an 88 Range Rover, and an 89 FJ62 Land Cruiser.

Those are 31"s? They look bigger than my 31"s do for some reason.
Although the 31s on my 4Runner look smaller than the 31s on my dad's Trooper.

Chris,
That would be the saggy stock suspension letting the 31's fill the wheel wells.
The Xterrains run pretty true though, unlike a lot of brands who's 33's measure out about 31.5.

SKNKWRX,
That is WAY TOO pretty.
