85 4runner
Hello Everyone. This is my new project. I picked up this 1985 4runner with 361000 miles on it for a steal. It has a rebuilt 22re that runs flawlessly. Needs paint and interior but everything works and came with a parts 4runner so I can transfer the interior over.

First thing I did was ditch those stock front springs with negative arch on them and threw a pair of 4" procomp springs with some rancho shocks. Sits pretty high in the front. I also put some 30" inch tires for now. Next is some rear springs and some sliders.

Took it to Cleghorn with a couple of buddies

Some Updates. I added some Downey 2 inch lift springs in the rear, with some new marlin crawler shackles. It sits almost level now. I also added a Long tub Downey header.


Here I took it to azusa canyon to flex it out. Not bad for have $175 Into the lift


After flexing it out I realized I needed longer bump stops. These are off an old Celica

Took it to 2N17X heres a good shot

Nice 4runner and its a shame these old 4runners get beat to pieces

So I made some recent progress on the 4runner. First off was new to me Hankook dynapro MTs 31x10.5r15. Then I found a Detroit locker 3rd and threw it in the rear. That was a budget breaker but its ok. it was needed.I also bought a bumper from my buddy. It was custom made for his 87 runner but he is parting it out. I am in the process of making it a bolt on to my 85. Lastly I have a lock rite locker coming in for the front.
