I would buy new.

Crazy expensive to drive to Modesto for CV boots when you can get them delivered for less than $50

Why? I got one and it's holding up just fine. Cost me $45 and I got a 1 year warranty on it if it "fails". I'd rather have a OEM cv than some Autozone crap.

Thanks Ian, I was looking to get the whole cv axel. I think it's easier to replace. But I may just buy this kit. Good looking out

In Ruben's case, the cost of driving to Modesto negates any savings you might get from buying used in Modesto. So either finding a 3p one or buying from the dealer, you'd come out ahead as far as cost.

You might also want to check Toy Connection in Santa Clara.

Oh yea forgot about them. They are pretty expensive though. I think they wanted like $300 for a stock bumper.

Be honest guys...... I painted my exposed area and behind the grille. But I didn't think it was going to be this glossy. I don't like it too much. But I want your feed back. Yay or nay. I'm thinking of giving it a satin coat.

I think it looks fine. I did my 02 with a satin and it looked too close to the dull stock black they use on the frame and whatnot. the semi-gloss makes it look new and different. I think you should keep it!

Looks good Ruben, sooner or later it will dull out some after some weather outside. I wouldnt waste the money/time to repaint. Plus once you get the bumper on there you wont notice it as much.

True, gas would kill any deal it would be.

Ruben, there is a 4wd 4runner in Newark, but it's been there since the beginning of June. Might still have the CV's. http://row52.com/Vehicle/Index/JT3HN87R0T0037338

I bought Oreilly's remans. They are factory Toyota CVs with new boots on them. They have a life time warranty. If one fails, I yank it out and drop it on their counter and get a new one. Never have to pay for CVs again.

Yeah they work. 1996-2002 4runner cv's will work.

I hear you on that one, but you also have a core charge. I wanted an extra one to keep around and at $100 for a core charge I wouldn't have kept my extra one around. Plus for me I'll be out of this vehicle in probably 3-4 years so a lifetime warranty isn't exactly necessary. I do understand the appeal though.
