    I used the Chemical Guys products pictured in the last picture. Super impressed.

    Alright it's been awhile since I've updated you all, so here's where we are. Polished the wheels and put new BFGs on. Cruised around town a lot and put the cap on for the winter. I still need to pull the rear seats to the tailgate apart and insulate/clean/restore all the parts an pieces.

    Been awhile since I’ve updated this post. Have been getting a lot of little things done and really enjoying cruising around LA in this bad boy. Installed

    Took a little vacation hung out in Taos, NM before heading to St. Louis, Mo for a few days. First thing I did when I got back was take this old thing out for a cruise.

    It's been awhile since I've posted. The 4runner has been running strong. I started an interior overhaul over the holidays. New dash, touchscreen audio, reupholstered seats, interior plastics restored and painted..

    Very clean first gen, nice job on the restoration so far!

    I'd like to pick up a first gen and do the same thing myself.

    Spent the holiday redoing the interior. New dash, touchscreen/bluetooth/apple car play/backup camera audio system, New AC systems, new panels front to back, new seats, new interior trim. So happy to have all the creature comforts!

    Thanks! luckily these old trucks are super simple. 8mm, 10mm, 14mm, and a screwdriver and you can pretty much take the entire thing apart! Definitely a lot of time has been spent on the project but it's been super rewarding.
