    We recently purchased a 2012 Tacoma DoubleCab TRD for Nicole that will also be used for mild wheeling and family adventures. In fact, we just came back from a 4 day camping trip in our new to us Tacoma which was pulling an Aliner Scout camper which we rented. I'm pretty impressed with the...

    LF: Parts 4Runner?

    Looking for a few parts or a 4Runner that someone is looking to get rid of. Doesn't need to run, can be a hunk of rust. I just need a hood, cab top from pillars up, and windshield. I'd buy the parts if someone has them, but I'm hoping that someone knows of a 4runner with a bad engine or with...

    Possible New Guy

    I'm looking for a new job and I'm looking at Rock Island Arsenal and at Fort Gordon. We have some family down in the Gordon area. Anyway, I'm trying to get a feeling for the local club and I heard this was it. I was really disappointed when we moved to IL and there was no club. If I land...

    Anyone do a tube bed on a 4runner?

    What is the battery configuration in your Diesel Hilux

    Originally, my truck was set up with dual 750 amp Optima Red Tops. Needing space, I dropped to one and everything was fine. That was, until the temps got down to about 0. Anything over about 10*F was fine. The truck would crank over with glow plugs running, but it just wasn't fast enough to...

    My first paint job

    ^ besides rattle-can stuff. I'm just using some Valspar products. The primer and black are anti-rust armor. The blue is Ford blue tractor paint. It is the closest cheap paint that I could find to Toyota Electric Blue. It is oil based enamel and no, I am not going to sand and buff it. If I...

    Ryan's 4Runner Diesel Swap

    This is out of a '94 and has had everything swapped over to work with an '85 harness. I also have extra parts. I was told that the engine had a crawler cam when I bought it, but have never checked. I bought it with 150k and have probably ran it about 20k. Very reliable so far. Doesn't use...

    Looking for aftermarket mirror options.

    I've seen a few Jeep mirrors that might work, but not exactly what I'm looking for. I played in the sloppy stuff this weekend and lost both of my side mirrors on my 4Runner. Now, I would like to go with something that I can mount on the side or top of the front fenders or maybe on the A...

    Hey guys. Building a new rear bumper for my '85 and moving my tail lights down into it. I know this thing used to have a converter box on it for trailer lights and that turn signals are separate from brake lights. Can I use tail lights that use brake and turn lights on the same wire or do I...

    My junk sliders.

    Posted this up on a club forum. Take a look if you want. This was easy, considering that there are no bends and there is some pretty simple welding involved. All this took was some 6" channel, 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 x 3/16" square tube, and a little 1/8" x 6' flat stock...
