Jerretxx: Little Brothers 4runner build

My little brother is about to turn 15 and get his permit, so we decided that a toyota would be a great first vehicle. We bought the truck as is, and were planning on putting it back together.

Current View:


Specs:
1988 toyota 4runner, 4x4, 5 speed, 3.0L V6 SR5

Current Mods:
1985 toyota Front axle
1985 toyota land cruiser front rotors (vented)
Trail-Gear SAS front hanger
Trail-Gear shock hoops
Trail-Gear Rock Sliders
Custom rock lights
Custom Front and rear bumpers
Custom transfer case brake
Trail-gear 4" leaf springs Front & Rear
Inchworm knuckle rebuild and backing plate eliminators
26" Trail-gear SS brake lines
6" trail-gear shackles
Trail-gear u-bolt flips front and rear
14" bilstein SS shocks font and rear




Future Mods:
5.29 gears Front&rear
tru-trac rear locker
17" wheels
35" tires (still deciding)


What it looked like before the previous owner stripped the suspension:


What it looks like now:

Haha yes! I've only had 22 motors, and 4.0 v6's. This 3.0 has a new top end though. Did yours give any problems that I should keep my eye on?

No not really. The top end had been done before I got it so it didn't give me any problems at all. It actually ran pretty good and got me to where I wanted to go all the time.

Good to hear. This one runs very good and the transmission and clutch are tight. You didn't happen to change your transfercase From chain driven to gear driven did you?

No. I left it chain drive and it worked perfectly for me. Had I kept it I would have changed it to dual cases using the gear cases with 4.7 gears in the rear case.
