FS: 1996 SR5, 4WD - Supercharged - $10k - MN

1996 4runner - Google Photos

Located in Mankato MN - South central part of the state.

Up for sale is my beloved 1996 4runner. It is a supercharged, Arizona truck, I have a bad habit of not leaving anything alone until it’s perfect, and that’s certainly been the case with this truck. I've done almost all the maintenance items you can think of in my ownership, which started in June of 2020 - with about 260k on the truck. Currently has 284k on the truck, 140k on the engine. Everything works, I believe this to be one of the best driving 3rd gen 4runners around - brakes are great, engine power is good, of course the 4wd is amazing - and it's incredibly reliable. I would trust this truck to drive across the country tomorrow.

Summer/Fall 2020:

Radiator & tstat
New belts
New battery
Lower Ball joints (common failure point)
Front calipers and rotors from Tundra (new)
Rear pads & hardware replaced (OE Toyota) - wheel bearings & seals inspected (all good!)
Changed all fluids in engine and drivetrain
Installed supercharger & URD dynamic tensioner kit
New NGK plugs & wires (OE, one step colder plugs)
Replaced brake master cyl & booster
Installed Hella fog lights - low, wide pattern (usable on road!)
Replaced fuel filter
Repainted engine & gas tank skid plates
Replaced shifter bushings
Installed rear diff breather extension

Spring/Summer 2021

Old Man Emu springs - Front 880, Rear 906 (slight lift, sits about like a stock ‘99 model)
Front struts, new Bilstein 5100
3D printed cup holders - early models suffer from lack of cup holders..
Cooper Discoverer AT3 - 265/75/R16 @ 280k
Timing Belt & Water pump - all new OE Toyota parts - full kit, idler wheels, tensioner etc

The body is in great shape. I had line-x sprayed on the rockers/doors last fall to protect against rock chips, as I drive some gravel occasionally. It has been driven in MN winters, however other than surface rust it has survived quite well. I sprayed Fluid film on the frame inside and out before last winter, which worked well to keep the rust at bay. The frame is in excellent shape, won’t find a more solid one out there.

The interior is in very good shape for being 25 years old. Weathertech floormats front and rear. Heat and AC work great. Everything works on this truck, even the gas gauge! (common problem) Non smoker.
The supercharger has been on the truck since last November, and was resealed & gone through prior to installation. These were a dealer installed kit from TRD, adds a lot of performance to the 3.4L V6 - a good little boost in low end torque, with little loss in MPG - I've found it does better most of the time - you really notice it on the highway, no need for the truck to downshift near as often on slight grades, passing, etc. However if a buyer does not want the supercharger I would be happy to work out a deal and hang on to the kit, and return the truck back to the stock intake manifold.
I was told the engine was replaced with a 99k mile replacement motor at around 260k due to head gasket failure, which would put 140k miles on the motor today. Judging by how clean and rust free all of the hardware and components of the engine are, I believe this to be true.

Only selling because I could use a pickup box more than interior cargo space right now. Thanks for looking, feel free to call or text anytime - PM is okay too.

Thank you, Ben
