Trade for a 4x4 (Taco/4Runner): Turbo built Civic

PM me or post here.

I am looking to trade for a 4x4 - Tacoma or 4Runner preferred. Will drive within a few hours to meet if necessary. I want to build/trade for a decent rig - already have a 2012 DCLB Tacoma but it's spanking new and I'm going to avoid modifying it until the warranty is up.

1997 Civic EX sedan with ABS, sunroof, PS/PW, factory keyless, cruise control. The EX model came with 10.3" brakes in the front, as opposed to the 9.5" found on the DX and LX models.

Motor setup:
-Bored to 75.5mm
-Slightly decked block
-Resurfaced head
-New OEM oil pump
-All new seals
-Chamfered and micropolished crank
-Stock cam
-ARP headstuds torqued to 70 ftlbs
-ACL Duraglide rod bearings, clearance 0.0015"
-Clevite 77 main bearings
-75.5mm Vitara pistons
-Rings gapped to .020" top, .023"middle, and .025" oil control IIRC
-FJ spec custom length I-beam rods. Compression ratio is close to 9.0:1
-OEM headgasket
-Vented valve cover with baffled catch can

Turbo setup:
-Garrett T3/T04e 50 trim .50ar compressor and .63ar exhaust housings with V-band flange on the hot side. Good for around 450whp. No shaftplay or smoke.
-Fast-turbo SS oil lines (-3an feed and proper BSPT->NPT fitting for the block)
-Tial 38mm wastegate
-560cc Evo injectors
-GM 3 bar map sensor
-Cast manifold
-FrontlineFab TIG'd downpipe with Vibrant mandrel bends and V-band flanges.
-3" mandrel bent exhaust with oval turbo muffler
-Walboro 255HP fuel pump
-Tuned on Neptune by John Kerr at J-KTuning, made 310whp/240ftlbs at 17-18psi. Revs to 7500rpm, anti-lag set at 5500rpm
-If you look through my build thread, you may see that I had a few problems with head lift, but taking out more timing has solved the issue. It does not push coolant under boost at all anymore.

-EX transmission
-Pennzoil Syncromesh fluid
-Grinds 3rd if you jam it into gear
-Competition Stage 4 clutch - 6 puck sprung, disc was replaced approximately 1.5k miles ago.
-No ISB noise
I have a Gearspeed rebuilt EX transmission as well, can include with car depending on purchase price.

-S2000 AP1 steering wheel, air bags and horn work (have stock steering wheel as well)
-Black ball shift knob w/3" extension
-Mcdonald's checkerboard headliner
-No rips on seats
-No CEL's, all lights on cluster work
-All seatbelts intact
-Needs domelight cover and bulb
-MP3/aux-in CD player in the lower DIN
-Clarion rear 6x9 speakers
-I used a plug-n-play splice harness to power the stock headunit so the factory keyless entry works
-Glowshift wideband with Bosch 4.9 LSU sensor
-Prosport electronic peak and hold boost gauge
-All windows/sunroof, power locks work.

-Mini-Morimoto bixenon projector retrofit w/4500k bulbs and relay harness
-White LED license plate light
-AVS in-channel rain deflectors
-BYS/Airwalker replica front bumper (cracked and zip-tie'd on passenger side) Comes with brand new front and rear bumpers
-Paintmatched mirrors and sideskirts
-Driverside fender needs to be replaced - the lower balljoint broke a few months ago and the tire deformed the fender. I have a brand new replacement depending on selling price.
-Some rust on both quarter panels. No holes but it's bubbling on both sides.
-Some door dings as to be expected on a 15 year old car.
-Original paint on body, never been repainted.

-Progress CS-II full coilovers with 350f/350r spring rates. Rides exceptionally well, not bouncy at all.
-ASR rear subframe brace
-GSR rear swaybar
-Kosei K1 16x7 +43mm
-Falken RT-615k tires with good tread. Very sticky tire.
-Gold Muteki extended lug nuts
-New front and rear wheel bearings

New passenger front wheel bearing
New battery
New distributor cap/rotor
New spark plugs (NGK BKR-7E)
New driver side lower balljoint
New fuel filter
New driver and passenger axles

I have invested a lot more money into the car than my asking price...but that's how it always plays out. The car is pretty quick and will serve as a fun daily or a race car if one so desires. In fact, I took FTD at a local auto-x last year with this car, it handles like a dream.
