1996 snow runner

i picked this up in april and am just going to speed through till i get this up to date. its not a hardcore wheeler (right now), more of an expo rig.

my son looked at the 4runner points and says snow, so now we have the "snow runner"

1996 4runner, 3.4L, auto, SR5, E-locker, 2-3" lift, brand new 285/75R16 tires, and brand new pearl white paint job.

cabelas parking lot an hour later and was already buying stuff for it lol, picked up some seatcovers and steering wheel cover out of the bargain cave.


that weekend i spent about $700 ordering stuff for it
synthetic winch rope
hawse fairlead (which i had to return and order a new one)
four 15W LED lights
aisin timing belt kit with water pump and timing belt tensioner (off rock auto for over $100 cheaper than the local parts stores)
timing belt tensioner tool
trans cooler with built in fan
power inverter

and i picked up a couple new tools for building stuff
tubing notcher
dimple die

took it up on white mountain which is like a 2 minute drive from the shop to the base of it.







little muddy, not bad, BUT this is when i learned that plasti-dip is no match for our pressure washer

the black box on top came out of my XJ, it had an air compressor and built in tank in there, worked good for $7, lasted about 3 years. its gone now but ill get to that later

and as you can see in the last pic i also redid my brakes, get rid of the warped rotor i had.

i have mentioned the pressure washer at work, well its a heated industrial washer that will burn your skin, it will also show you that the previous owner did a craptasticly cheap paint job. so to fic my paint the washer just took off, i used undercoating on the body, i have used it before and have had no issues with it.





picked up some HID offroad lights from ebay for $45 each

i havnt worked on the 4runner in months, did little organization work today. used an idea i had in my cherokee and adapted it into here. i ran out of rubber hose to wrap around the edges, but i can easily get another foot and install it in the missing spot without taking anything out.







closer view on how the axe is mounted.


heres a reference of what i had in the cherokee (before i loaded stuff on it)

roof top tent wil be showing up at the end of the month, so i built the beginnign of my roof rack and mounted my LED bar on it. once i get the tent on there and see what kind of room i have left to deal with i will add some expanded metal in the front, some sides, and protection over the light bar.





not the best camera but here is my HID headlights



and here is the LED bar, with the LED's on i can barely tell when i turn my headlights on.
