Back in November my wife's car was totaled. Praise the Lord she and kids are ok! So then the search for a new ride began. It was decided that she would begin driving my Corolla and I would get another vehicle. The hunt began on Craigslist for a 4x4 SUV type vehicle. After a few weeks of searching, I swung in to a small mom and pop car dealership and there it was. A 1995 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4x4, 3.0, 5speed. When I asked how much, my jaw dropped. $1800. Then I asked, "Where do I sign?"
This is how it looked the day I brought it home. First thing I did was replace all fluids. They all looked good but I wanted to start with a new baseline on maintenance. Then I had to take off the step bars and get rid of those silly rims. I had big plans. Good thing people were steady buying parts off the XJ. This allowed me to fund the T4R toys.
I learned alot about what to do and not do while building the XJ. So on this truck I decided to only do a small lift and go straight to bumpers and lockers. On the XJ I locked the front axle so I had to have the truck in 4wd all the time to use it. With this truck I plan to lock the rear first. 90% of the time 2wd is all you need. Plus the 7.5" diff up front is considered "weak". As it sits now...
