derekabraham's 2002 4Runner

So, based upon my future goals and aspirations, I needed a 4x4 vehicle. I've always wanted a 4Runner so I pursued that.


After months of searching, I finally found the one.


My parents and I traded in my mom's 2003 Camry for this beautiful 2002 4x4 SR5 4Runner. It's pretty flawless and it's only got 109K miles. Not too bad!


It's nice to finally have a vehicle in my name that I'm completely responsible for. (Comfortable monthly payments as well at $186 a month! )


So now my mom is going to be driving the Tacoma, and this will be my new build.


Right after purchase (2/7/11):



How she sits as of 5/18/12:

My favorite picture:






MODS:
Outdoor Logic Front Bumper
16" KMC Enduro Wheels
285/75/16 BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain KM2 (E Range) Tires
Aisin Manual Hub Conversion
Kenwood DNX6180 Navigation Head Unit
Flowmaster 50 Series Muffler
OME 90004 Front Shocks
OME 882 Front Coilovers
OME 60027 Rear Shocks
OME 891 Rear Coils
Toytec Diffrential Drop
Optima Yellow Top Battery
Deckplate Mod
Interior and License Plate LED Lights
BudBuilt Skid Plate

Lots more to come, here's my next few mods that I plan on doing (hopefully in this order...!):
1. Rear diff breather relocation mod
2. Sliders
3. Snorkel
4. Rear bumper, haven't quite found the right one yet. Probably CBI.
5. Hilux Surf rear conversion: http://www.toyota-4runner.org/762796-post135.html
6. Light Racing UCAs maybe?
7. Roof rack maybe? Yakima, Bajarack....I'll pick one eventually.

Oh, and Ryan (ryanjboutin) and I removed the running boards, mudflaps and the fender trimmings yesterday (2/8/11) morning:




Looks soooooooooooo much better. I'll post up a better picture later. Thanks a lot Ryan!


Stay tuned. A lot is going to happen over the next few days.

Nothing too much really at all.


It's basically going to be for driving in snow.

BIG difference I've noticed between this 2002 and the 2008 Tacoma my mom is now driving, is that there are no PLASTIC CLIPS holding everything together. I love it.

Yeah it's got some goodies going on it. Wait until after this weekend. You'll see.



For now it's going to get a 3 inch front spacer and rear coils so I can fit my old 285/75/16 KM2s and my old Enduros from my Tacoma. I'll eventually upgrade from the spacers to shocks/coils, but they'll do for now!


I want sliders and front and rear bumpers eventually, too.

Yeah, after my lift and wheels and tires go on (and something going on in the morning ), I'll be done too for a long time as well.


I'm stoked the Tacoma and 4Runner are both 6 lugs. I love my Enduros.
