Finally Jumping In

I've been ghosting for the last few years and two 3rd gen 4runners. Finally deceived to jump onto the form to slowly document my current rig, and help share of my mistakes with other 3rd gen owners.

Currently sitting at 240k, 5spd, with a landcruser spring lift in the rear, and oem lift on the front. This has been my hunting/fishing/skiing rig for the last year, not a dedicated offroader, but does get to see some fun trails all summer out here in CO.

Heres the real deal on a trip last summer on Ophir pass. New tires and plenty of fixes since then.

New to the forum, been lurking for a while!

Recently got back into 4runners with the purchase of an 2002 SR5 in (according to the door jamb sticker) Dorado Gold with oak leather interior.

Was being advertised as a Limited but it had 4th gen 17in wheels (fresh Kumho rubber, at least!).

Aside from the wheels, it seems to be stock. For $4,000 it seemed like a pretty good deal, especially given the wild market right now!

161k miles, runs like a top, A/C blows cold and she drives and brakes true with zero drama. A few nicks and dings but no body rust and minimal undercarriage rust (just a hint on the rear axle/pumpkin, scraped off and coated now), which is a blessing in the DC/MD area.

Needs a new rear bumper to pass inspection but that's already on the way. They failed me for a rusty rear bumper, which I understand, but it's been a hassle trying to find an affordable solution (found a set non-OEM just to pass for now, beefier bumpers may come later with the inevitable lift/upgrades).

I've had a 1995 in the past, and my parents bought a brand new 2002 SR5 which they kept for several years before going for the Pilot in 2004. The old family 2002 was the same color as this one, as I recall, but with cloth seats.

Needless to say, the nostalgia is strong with this one

Happy to be here and learn how to keep this 3rd gen on the road for as long as I can. I've owned just about everything I've ever wanted over the last 20 years but this 4Runner just feels right! For now it's a weekend/beach/road trip wagon but it may become the daily driver before long.

Seems to be an SR5 with maybe some additional packages, per the leather/chrome/fender flares.

Hello from the Lonestar state! Long time lurker first time posting. First time 4runner owner picked up a 2015 Trail a couple of months back before things got crazy.
It already had a lot of mods. when I picked it up and super clean, maybe another members old ride?
Looking forward to learning new things and all the new adventures this will take our family on.

New to Yotas and 4Runners

Hey everybody, I guess I'm the current FNG, so here's my obligatory intro post.

I just got a light metallic blue '94 4Runner a few days ago. It's pretty much stock and is both my first Toyota and my first 4Runner. I'll be reading up on the threads here for a while to educate myself before I start posting much.

As for me, I'm a Retired US Navy Veteran (20 years/MR1) and also a trained machinist and gunsmith. My current other vehicles are a '75 Dodge W300 Power Wagon (440/4spd/DRW/D60's w/4.88's) and a '75 Jeep J10 Stepside (360/AT/Quadratrac/D44's w/4.10's), so I stay pretty busy. lol

My phone is charging right now, so I'll try to get pics of my 2nd gen up later.

purchased some Pirelli Scorpion All Terrains

If anyone in NJ has 18" 4th gen Limited wheels but has a bad/dry rotted spare tire and needs a spare tire in good condition I am selling 2 Firestone Destination LE2 wheels in good condition with tread depth 7/32". Just increasing my post count until I can post to classified.

I got all new Pirelli Scorpion All Terrains installed, but turns out my spare tire was bad so i used one of the 4 highway tires as a spare and 2 are for sale and 1 was damaged while removing from the wheel Otherwise I would have sold 4 as a set.

Hey guys

Been lurking around for quite some time, following guys like Assburns, Eimkeith, Ripcord, Derpiful etc. to slowly build the best 3rd gen I can afford.

Certainly nowhere near those guys as of yet, but I figured I should join the forum and get more involved in the community I'm taking inspiration and ideas from!

I'll start a build thread eventually when there's more stuff worth sharing, but here's my '97 from up in British Columbia

Finally got back into a 4Runner after selling a 2001 and 2006 years ago. Miss those cars everyday. Especially the 3G. It was such a great ride.

I like that color. Had a 3G the same color and still kick myself for selling it.
