    Foxy the 2020 Taco

    Well, I sold my ‘89 4Runner (I was in it for $2000 and was offered $10,500) and decided to let it go. I only put 2000 miles on it in 3 years, so it was costing me more in insurance than I paid for it. This has freed up some spending money for the new Tacoma. We got the Taco last spring...

    ‘89 V6 Auto neutral/park switch bypass

    My ‘Runner has decided to suddenly not want to crank. I’m 90% sure after some time with the trusty voltage tester that it’s likely the n/p switch. Does anyone have a FSM or link to wiring diagram so I can jump those wires to test?

    Emergency help needed!

    Well, it may not be an actual emergency, but I need to know sooner than later. The wife gave the go ahead for a Softopper not long ago, and I’m planning on ordering one tomorrow. The big issue is color. My 4Runner is red, and we are thinking of going tan with tinted windows. It looks great...

    Builds  Mr Wilson’s 89 4Runner

    I’m not much for build threads, but it seems to lead to hijacks when I mention my new ‘Runner in other threads, so I figured I’ll start this thread to minimize that, and allow others to hijack mine. My plans are to have a light (easily towable) rig to do easy wheeling with while on road...

    4Runner hard top “L” trim

    Anyone have a source for these window trims, or an extra they would sell? I need the P side one for sure. Thanks

    Vin decoder issue

    I’m using the Toyota vin decoder (link below) and it keeps telling me my vin is “invalid”. I can’t imagine it’s not coming up with anything because it’s a Canadian truck? It works for my US imported 100, but not the CDN 4Runner. I’m trying to get the specific options etc that it has. Vin is...

    ‘89 4Runner auto shifter really loose

    So I’m moments away from purchasing an ‘89 with the 3.0 auto (not my first choice) and the shifter is really sloppy. It functions fine, but I’d like it to be a little (lot) tighter. Is it just a matter of messing with the linkage, or is there a bushing or something that it pivots or rides in...

    AC Delco UCAs

    I searched a few different ways, and didn’t find anything on these. AC Delco is offering complete UCAs and they also have the 555 ball joints. Wondering if anyone has used either one? I’m considering buying the complete UCA since it has both bushings as well. The main concern is quality of...

    For Sale  SOLD ‘06 LX470. Spotless 200k

    I am listing this for a friend who I helped buy it. He is very tall and has a lower back and hip injury in his past and is regretfully selling it as he can’t comfortably drive it. He tried a 4th Gen 4Runner too. The LX has 200k on it, but looks and drives like it has 20k. The interior is...

    100 series mechanic?

    Anybody know of a good mechanic in the area that could do timing belt and starter service in a '99 UZJ100? I'm in the Whiterock area, but could possibly get it elsewhere. I would normally do this myself, but have been out of the country for a while and can't put off my own business any longer...

    '99 sat for 2 weeks, now no crank and weird buzzing noise...

    We went away for a couple of weeks and as a precaution I removed the EFI relay for theft prevention. Upon returning home, I reinstalled the relay and went to start the 100. No crank at all, and there is a buzzing noise coming from the starter area. After looking at multiple search results on...

    1990 Hilux... Flat deck or fix skanky box??

    Hey guys. I just picked up a 1990 Xtracab that needs a bit of work done on the body. The frame is totally solid, and mechanically it's great. I'm going to do some weld in rockers to repair the small amount of rust there, but I'm torn on what to do in the rear. The box looks repairable, but...

    OBD2 Apps and Bluetooth Scanners for Apple

    Anybody have personal experience with OBD2 transmitters and apps that work well with iPad or iPhone? I have a 5c and a 2nd gen iPad running 7.1.1(I think?). I'm not a monstrously tech savvy guy, so something fairly basic that will read codes, and monster things like trans temp, fuel...

    RTH Airbox interchangability???

    My '96 came with a K&N cone type filter. I found a complete airbox from a '94, but have heard that the lids are different and allow different air flow. Anyone know if these are interchangeable or do I need to find a box from a 96 or 97? I have to decide tomorrow as the parts are a long way...

    Paintable bedliner?

    With all the folks on here de-flaring and line-x, herculining etc I haven't seen anyone paint the liner... I like the concept of liner, but don't want the flat black or other offered colors. I would like to paint over the liner with a stock Lexus color. Any thoughts?

    Custom exhaust?

    I'm sure the info is around here someplace but to be honest, I can't be bothered to search high and low. I need to fix my exhaust as it is rusty and leaking and 2 deaths in the family this week have me exhausted... Pun noticed but not intended. I guess the question is, if I do a custom...

    RTH! Front end noise/play...

    I am on the road and am hearing a strange noise from the front end when turning at a lower speed or going over bigger bumps. I have the front end up in the air and have what seems like a lot of play in the birfields. If you are spinning the ds tire in one direction, how much play is normal...

    KM2s vs Snow... Who wins?

    Okay, since it is mostly spring around the northern part of The Americas, I figured this would be a good time to ask what the definitive verdict is on KM2s in the snow. I used to run KMs in the snow (ski town kinda snow), driving to work at 3 am to start my day plowing the streets. I know they...

    PDF of Windshield install from FSM???

    As stated, does anyone have a pdf of the windshield install from the fsm that will show the requirement for adhesive/urethane between the glass and the gasket? Mine was replaced at a nationwide glass shop with a life time warranty but leaks like a sieve and they are giving me grief about taking...

    LX450 Flares and panels feeler...

    I am giving thought to removing the flares and body plastic from my LX. Everything is still in good shape and trying to decide between a quick and dirty removal, or taking my time and trying to salvage the set for someone who needs/wants them. What kind of $$s would these bring? I don't have...
