EDIT: THIS IS ANOTHER VEHICLE, I DELETED THE ORIGINAL ONE AND THIS IS NOW THE ONE I'M LOOKING AT

The guy is asking $5k but I have been talking to him and I think if I have $4k in hand and do some good talking, I can get it from him... It has 184,xxx miles.

It looked pretty good, inside was pretty dirty and a few stains. Didn't take any pictures because my phone died. Needs an alignment, hangs left a little. Motor sounds fine, and all fluids looked good, except power steering was low. It was repainted, he said it was faded and a friend of his painted it for him at his house. Doesn't look too bad. I asked what kind of gas mileage he got and he tried to tell me he got 26-29 MPG, I just started to laugh. Underside looked good. All the windows had matching VIN #s except the windshield didn't have one. The front of the frame looked fine and as far as I can tell, has never been wrecked.

Edit: I also got him to $2,900

Yea that's it in my OP, overall everything looks pretty good. The problems that I noticed was he said the trans was worked on last year because the reverse gear went out (it did shift fine tho, and had no lack of power). He had 245s on the front and 265s on the rear, said he got them pretty cheap. It does need an alignment, pulls a little left (maybe that's why he needed new tires?

I have my 5100/Eibach set up I took off my wrecked truck and my rear 5125's. All I would need is rear coils for a complete lift (plus buy adapter for my 5125's). I have my eye on a set of 285/75/16 BFG ATs for $300, not sure yet tho.

I bought my old 96 2wd sr5 4runner in 07 for 3500 with 132k. Buy that shit. It will probably need a starter, battery, timing belt water pump, or a fuelpump. Those are the only things i have ever seen go wrong with those early 3rd gen 4runners that have been taken care of. timing belt is just smart to change. I did mine at 175k.

Yea my budget is pretty low. I have a little over $2k and my mom and dad are going to loan me about $1k, then pay them back as soon as I sell my truck. I'm going to try and take it to a mechanic and see what he thinks. I'm not 100% buying it, I'm looking everyday for a vehicle. I can hold off and save some more money but being in college and being without a truck since Oct. 4 sucks

That's what I plan on doing if I do end up with a 4runner, I've checked out your build a bunch

Sorry didnt read all the way through. Thats probably where the pull is coming from. Bet the seller is a foreigner or a good ol' boy. In that case I may stay away from the truck. Look under the hood and make sure that the front quarterpanels have a toyota sticker on them. If they do then your draw probably is from the stupid tire mismatch.
