The 4Runner Satoshi
 
I recently joined T4R in the hopes of finding some local members with 3rd & 4th gen 4Runners to scope out for fitment of a Satoshi style grill.

If I can find me some guinea pig runners I'll see what I can come up with. :cool:

More to come....

Meeting with a local T4R member with a 03 Sport 4Runner this coming weekend to see what can be done... I believe this is a 3rd Gen 4Runner...

It's just an experiment.;)

I can pretty much do the 05-11 grills in my sleep at this point.:o

Figured I'd just try something different for a change since there is always a bit of down time while waiting for the Painting or powder coating batches to be completed.

There's a guy local around here with a '02 ish runner (don't wanna mess up the gen's) with one. If I see it I'll snap a pic!

if it's the good generation, it's the 3rd gen:p

3rd gen stopped in 2002.

96-02 is 3rd gen
03-09 is 4th gen


3rd gens have three different grilles. The 96-98 version, the 99-00 version and the 01-02 version. The 96-98 is the one commonly used for satoshis as it is a very simple job with that one.

The 4th gens have 2 different grilles, 03-05 and 06-09.

My family's got a 3rd gen and gf's got a 4th gen. Excited to see what they look like :D

Homer,

If you can make a Satoshi grill for a 3rd gen 4runner the same way as the one in your current sig I'd buy it in a heatbeat. Well, maybe.. depending if the price tag isn't freakishly big!

HomerTaco 08-09-2012 09:00 PM

Very good information! Thank you! :D

Trying to navigate T4R is a bit difficult since I'm used to TW.:o

Ripcord 08-09-2012 09:05 PM

Oh and I forgot to mention that they are all interchangeable on the 3rd gens, I dont think that is the case with 4th gens though. But I could be wrong.

I has 2003 4Runner. :D Bad news is that the 2003 has a different grill from the 2004-2009 4Runner.

I also have a 2nd Gen (2005-2010) Tacoma grill in my shed. I was going to Satoshi my Tacoma before I sold it, but didn't want to do anything to the original. It is already cut in spots, but it is definitely still usable.
