    ..I have a list of many things.
    Is it possible to do so? Would I have to buy new Tacoma brackets instead of the 4Runner brackets.


    And I know because of the added weight, I'll have to install heavier coils/shocks.

    Thanks!

    wait you mean putting the 4 runner body on the taco frame?

    won't work most likely.

    Nope. it's been tried somewhere, don't feel like finding that thread.

    On a side note. i'm still hoping to see a 4runner front end swap on a tacoma. (4runner hood, grille, bumper, fenders) be a nice change from the 4runners getting taco front ends.

    Oh, theres no such thing as a 4runner ARB for that generation 4runner. All 4runners with ARBs are just modified to fit a Tacoma ARB.

    So yes, it will fit..

    but no a body for a 4 runner will not bolt straight onto a tacoma frame.

    edit: sorry i was looking at pictures with the other messages were posted.

    Ok, I was just making sure because my buddy is selling his off of his 2nd 4Runner for a "to be determined" price. :)

    what would you ask for it..

    Has been bashed in to the hood but was re-bent back and stiffened where it had been bent
    1st generation model produced
    a few spots of surface rust.


    FYI the 4Runner was rolled on a trail with this bumper on..

    depends on how bad of shape it is in, is it still straight or were the mounting brackets bent on impact?

    $350 sounds like a very decent price
    Yeah its all still straight, just the actual frame horns were slightly bent- I'll get a true answer tomorrow.

    But I know for a fact the bumper is still as straight as an arrow
