    Here is the story,my best friend from high school went into the service and has been over there for a year or more now.He doesnt have a vehicle so i talked his wife into buying a 87 4 runner and let me get it ready for when he gets home.It needs some help cause there is some stuff broke.This build is for him.If anyone is willing to help by sending me some parts it would help out alot.Ill keep pics as i do stuff.Jst got it tonight and its been gutted some.Carpet and seats are in bad shape.We got it for 900 with the 22re down in it with 160000 on it.I really need some rear seats that work right cause the ones in it are broke and he has my god daughter will be in the car.Here are some pics.
