Hey guys, new member here. Been reading on here for awhile but never posted about anything. Wanted to show my rig and ask some questions and if im understanding things correctly junior members have to post a couple times before they can do that. I've got a 1998 limited with a TJM T15 Steel front end and a completely custom rear bumper/guard. hoping to post pics soon if i can figure out how to do that.

Hello all, and thanks for all the active and past contributors to this site... I have referenced info and write-ups here time and time again throughout ownership of my '07 Sport 4WD V6, and figured now that I have space, tools, time and money for the build I promised myself way back when - that I should finally make an account and get a'postin'.

Based out of PNW and currently garaging / building in Western WA.

Will do a full build thread [once I am allowed to, and have reached my post limit through sensibly responding vs. mindlessly spamming ;)] but currently this is where I sit on my T4R:

Installed:
- Front & Rear Bilstein 5100's
- Rear OME Coils Heavy Duty (2896) - went oversize for anticipated rear bumper, camping / recovery gear, and stupidly heavy dual 12" sub enclosure w/ 1300W amp
- SPC Upper Control Arm's
- Front ARB Bumper (bear/moose/subaru diverter)
- Rear PowerStop discs and ceramic pads

Purchasing Soon:
- Front OME Springs (2886) - for 'v8 with added weight'. Yes, I have V6 - but also a stupid-heavy front bumper, home to heavy winch, heavy steel cable, and heavy hi-lift so I really don't want any weaker unless there is a specific bad experience someone wants to share. I never want my front end sagging, again. EVER!!!!
- BFG T/A KO2 285/70/17 tires (x5)
- -12 offset, -4.5" backspace 17" off-road wheels for above (unless I find through research and asking around that stock wheels are fine... I'm currently worried about offset though. No real reason, other than I don't really know what I'm doing)
- Front PowerStop Truck/Towing Brakes & ceramic pads


Want to Get in 2021:
- Fancy Bump Stops
- Hi-Clearance Rear Bumper w/ mounts for LED's, shackles and a stout 2" receiver
- Rear OME Nitrocharger Sport Shocks (#60005) - to get a bit more rear axle flex in those times where I'm set on doing some stupid shit.



So, my questions to you amazing peoples:
1. What should I change / not do that I listed?
2. What am I missing that I should do?
3. Where should I get sliders? ;p

Unable to post

Hey hoping someone here can help me out. I signed up using my personal email months ago and never received a registration confirmation, which was not a big deal as I was just reading. Now I have my first 4runner and want to start posting, but I cant since I never confirmed my email. I switched this account to my work email which uses Gmail, and boom, no issues, now I can post. I then Made another account using my personal email , and again, no confirmation. Can anybody help me out, I didn't want to use this work email long term.
Adeski is the name of account I Have under my personal email. Hoping an admin or an experienced user has advice

If the dealer would cooperate, I might get a T4R someday. If not it's off to Carvana.

I saw a 2020 on there but it had been a rental. 17k miles.
There was a 1 owner 2016 with 69k miles and you could tell the owner took great care of it.

Which would you choose?

Hi, new guy here. Got a supercharged 99 Limited 4x4 a few weeks ago, and while itís in good shape Iím putting together a list of things to do with the help of the forum. New LBJs should be delivered on Friday, so soon I wonít have to live in a state of minor, but constant, terror that a wheel might fall off.

Hi gang! New 4R owner here. Been wanting a 5th gen since before the facelift. My last beloved vehicle was my new ‘04 Xterra. 11 years and 250,000 miles of happiness. Never traded it off, the only thing I considered as a true replacement was a 4R. Finally PA road salt finished it off in 2015. As it happened, l was making a short career detour selling Fords. The Edge I ended up with was unsatisfying. Got rid of it and went back to school.

Now, after 5 years or so of driving meh vehicles, I’m finally home again. Got a very clean 2016 SR5 Premium. 62,000 miles and feels like a new vehicle still. Optioned just like I would have ordered it. Beige softex was hard to find! I am more excited than when I bought my new 2001 Impreza RS coupe! It’s like having my Xterra back, but better in every conceivable metric.

Hi everyone, I have been a long time follower on this forum but recently created an account. I currently have a 2008 4th Gen V8, but I am looking to upgrade to something newer.

Always enjoy looking at different builds and ideas.

Hello everyone, new 4Runner owner here. It's all about the basket! Seriously, thank you to all who contribute to this forum. Plans are to eventually build my new rig and drive from PA to the 2022 FJ Summit. Did it in 2012 with my FJ and had a blast. This is me showing off best of both worlds.

New member. Iím actually a first gen tacoma owner but want to keep up to date with the 3rd gen t4r mods for ideas that are applicable to my platform.

My truck is a custom cavalry blue double cab, supercharged with 1st gen TRD grey blower, I have TRD headers, pre-runner converted to 4wd, and I have some plate bumpers soon to be installed. The modifications never stop.

Obvious new member here. No 4Runner (yet) - looking at a 2000, but it's pretty rusty.
Older ones are very hard to come by here (Ontario, Canada).
Owner is out for a couple weeks, but I'm hoping to get the truck checked by a mechanic once he's back.
Fingers crossed.
