Performance:

The 3.4L is anemic... period. The TRD supercharger makes this truck drive like a normal car. The smaller pulley, URD 7th injector, crank pulley, and TRD headers help to address the negative impact that heavier wheels, tires and armor have on this truckís performance. This 4runner will never be a race car... BUT... it can be made to perform like a normal modern day vehicle while retaining its off-road capabilities.

-TRD supercharger
-URD 2.2Ē pulley
-URD AIC
-TRD headers ceramic coated
-ARP stainless studs PN# 400-8027 and 400-8007
-AFE intake filter
-Airaid modular intake resonator delete
-Champion radiator

Suspension, Wheels & Tires

Suspension: I had Toytec adjustable coilovers on my prior 3rd and 4th gens. One thing to keep in mind... Their 650 lb springs are a must. For weight and also for ride. The 4runner has more rolls in the corners than Costco has in the bakery section. The 650 lb springs help to reduce the body roll and I love the stiffer ride. Huge improvement. The Toytec 1Ē body lift allows me to run 33Ē tires with zero rub on the front mud flaps and minimal rub on the fender extensions, (addressed with trimming 1 cm off the infero-medial aspect of the portion of the bumper extending into the fender). Highly recommended. UCAís are a must to dial in alignment following the lift and also to eliminate the contact the stock arms have with the coilovers during full articulation. If youíve had aftermarket UCAís in the past you know how much of a pain they are when dirt, grime and corrosion start eating away at the ball joint. Iconís delta joint are sealed. I ran them on my prior trucks with zero issues. Highly recommended.

Wheels: I am OCD or CDO in alphabetical order. I canít stand five spoke wheels on six lug trucks... Five spoke wheels make the truck look off balance when the lugs donít line up with the spokes. I also canít stand people that purchase custom wheels only to run spacers to get that aggressive look... This defeats the entire purpose of getting custom wheels. Get the right offset the first time around. Volk TE37ís are some of the nicest six spoke wheels out for this truck. Problem is their conservative offset. With Fuel Shok, I get the balanced look of six spoke wheels, the modern concave look of the TE37ís, the step lip of the TE37X, an outstanding anthracite finish, an aggressive AF offset, ALL for an affordable price. Obviously very impressed with these. Ran them on my 4th gen in 18x9 offset -12. Going significantly more aggressive on this application.

Tires: I have run BFG KO2ís, Toyo open country AT, Nitto Terra, Ridge, and Trail Grapplers in the past. All of these are great choices. I wanted to try something different with the KM3ís based on a friendís recommendation. These have more road noise than the Trail Grapplers. They are also notoriously difficult to balance. One tire is presently being sent back on warranty for being out of round. On the positive side, they look phenomenal... Will see how they perform in the mud but based on the above, I canít recommend these.

Installed:
-Toytec 1Ē body lift
-Toytec 3Ē coilovers with 650 lb springs
-Toytec differential drop kit
-Icon Delta Joint UCAís
-17x10Ē offset -18 Fuel Shok Anthracite
-285/70/17 BFG KM3

JDM Parts

Genuine Hilux Surf 185 Power Rear Mirror Spoiler installed. Perfectly color matched @tajcollisioncenter Thundercloud Metallic. The function of the rear mirror drop down is to see the rear bumper while backing up. This part predates the invention of the rear back up camera. The mod is totally unnecessary in this day and age but it is appreciated by JDM enthusiasts and adds a very unique detail to this US spec 4runner. Extremely difficult to find.

Also installed are two Revier LED third brake lights. The one seen is the high mount spoiler version with smoke lens to match the tail lights... The one not seen is the hatch mount version with red lens (seen in the reflection in the final pic). These lights are discontinued and are also near impossible to find.

-Hilux Surf 185 power rear mirror spoiler color matched Thundercloud Metallic
-Revier smoke lens led third brake light, (spoiler mount)
-Revier red lens led third brake light, (hatch mount)
-Revier side mirrors with LED turn signals, DRLís, and puddle lamps

Audio

Goals: Primary objective, improve the OEM system, and fill in the missing bass without annoying rattles. Secondary objective, modernize the ride with Bluetooth connectivity, Apple car play, and back up camera. Third objective, reduce in cabin road and tire noise. The following gets the job done.

-Kenwood DMX4707S with backup camera
-Focal front separates
-Focal rear coaxials
-Audio control 300 watt amp
-Kicker 10Ē CompRT sub
-Qlogic box
-Noico 80 mil and 315 mil sound deadening

Look into the Deckplate mod and a drop in oiled filter, aFe Power is what I recommended since they made the original TRD performance air filters for Toyota. K&N's take in too much dirt. Those two intake changes will net a combined +18 HP and should run less than $100.

The deckplate mod involves cutting a hole in the air box and installing a marine grade deckplate that is waterproof. By bypassing the snorkel when you're not doing river crossings, you'll gain loads more power. It's probably more than +18 HP for you since that's a long way for the air to travel with a lot of bends. Pop it back in when you do a crossing and the snorkel works just like it's supposed to.

Cool to see such an awesome and fellow supercharged 4Runner just one town over from me, hopefully I'll see you on the road sometime. I suggest you check out "4Runners of Washington" on facebook if you haven't already too. Just curious, how come you went from a V8 4th gen to a 3rd gen? I was kind of contemplating the opposite move.

Thanks! Will check them out! Iíve owned 3rd, 4th, 5th gen 4runners and an FJ Cruiser. All generations have their positives and quirks... The reason is primarily nostalgia. I love the third gen. The looks. The interior. A lot of memories. I could not pass up this low mileage supercharged Thundercloud.
I feel the same way about the 3rd gen vs my 4th gen (son vehicle now) wife new 2018 Trd 5th gen and even my Tundra. It just takes me back 25 years driving the 96 limited 4 runner. I just like keeping it running well and even though it doesn't have the power and comfort of the 5th gen. It isn't close to anything that my Tundra offers it is still a love affair I can't explain..lol Even though I would never SC a 25 year old terribly underpowered SUV I do like seeing others doing theirs.
