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):

1. Rear diff breather relocation mod
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.
