Wesrunner's 3rd gen build!

June 7th 2014



Well I finally got tired of my old 2WD Tacoma, and decided it was time for an upgrade.
I wanted a 4Runner because the pickup bed wasn't gonna cut it with the 6 hour drives from college to home. Plus this thing makes camping a breeze. I had to drive 2 hours to Tyler Texas to get it but I think I made a pretty smart buy. It's a 1999 V6 4WD with just under 200k. I got it from a guy who works at the dealership in Longview TX. The truck was a trade in and he ended up buying it from the dealer. It's very clean for having almost 200k miles. It runs extremely well, and I'm expecting many more miles of enjoyment out of this thing.

Filling it up on the way home for the first time in Shreveport, LA.





I'll get some more pictures up when I have time to take them. Finals coming up and all.

That's all I got so far. I'll try to keep this one a little better updated and organized than my old build. Anyway... Thanks for stopping by!

I'll always have a place in my heart for 3rd gen 4Runners

I'm also a bit jealous of your J shifter with no push button!

Congrats and looking forward to your build!

Thanks man! I was exited about the shifter. More fun than the push button.

Today I inspected and tightened all my drive belts. Figured I'd snap a pic of the for now clean engine bay. Yes that's my finger.

my brother in law has a 1996 4runner that just hit 400k miles and still
running strong.

I recently had to trade in my Tacoma for a bigger family car.
but I definitely plan on picking up a 3rd gen 4runner next

question your 4runner 4wd system isn't locking hubs??

so when you engage the 4wd you only have to shift
no need to lock the hubs

Yeh 3rd gen 4runners and some 1st gen tacomas have Toyotas ADD (automatic differential disconnect) system. Some have swapped to manual hubs so it is doable, but I just shift into h4 and its good to go.
