    This is, or rather WAS a 97 toyota 4runner limited. I bought it 5 years ago and made it into a project race truck to race in the MDR 1450 class. I have TONS more information about it for people that are interested. Also, not to mention parts up the a$$. Here are the specs/informaton/ what included yada yada...


    -Engage custom long travel kit (All chromoly with racing spindle, 2.5 x 10 king shocks (these are 2" larger than standard and the upper mounts are custom and extended from the stock tower in order to accomodate the travel), racing bearing, bushings, thicker rotors, and a racing hub with brand new bearings with longer and large race lugs) This setup was never put in any extreme racing situations since the rear end was never finished. So in short, its a very custom, nice and strong kit that has no wear and tear from offroading yet. The shocks were chosen to be 2.5 x 10 so that you could run a dual spring rate setup on it. Currently i have single springs.
    -A set of beard racing seats with harnesses. Seats already installed and bolted into the in-cab roll cage.
    -The roll cage was my pride and joy. It is made of MDR1450 spec metal and sizing. It is a 6 pt cage, welded through tight holes in the floor INTO THE FRAME. This isnt a cheesy no good frame. The primaries that run from front to back are one solid tube with at least 7 bends in each that meet the conture of the roof and side panels. This cage was left open without too many cross memers in order to allow freedom for creativity and completion.
    -I also have a momo steering wheel with a quickrelease. This is not installed yet so you can decide to remove the steering column and put it in, or just leave the steering column and weld the quick release "male" part on. The current steering wheel is the stock one.
    -I also have the hanammans wide front kit with 4 pin hood installed. I fell in love with the look and had it fitted.
    -The motor was pulled out when I blew a head gasket. I opened the entire motor up and found that both my heads had small cracks. I decided to do a full motor rebuild. Freshly (compliments of toyota of orange) assembled block with a fresh engine block, new crank, new piston set, honed cylinders, two new cylinder heads, new rings, bearings, grease, etc. I also bought the doug thorley street legal headers for it. I have all the parts from the original motor if you want them. The truck currently has the original block still in it with a full set of pistons and crank and rods. (basically the bottom end). I put a LOT and I mean a LOT of money into building the new motor and want it to go with the truck. I might make exceptions but I'd like to sell everything as a package.


    WILL PART OUT! JUST ASK.

    $9,000 for the whole truck

    Ask about prices for parts. I would like to sell the suspension with the body, but money talks. The engine is not in the truck, so the truck is just a roller as of right now. I can install the engine if needed.

    Thanks man. I'm putting it all together now. No one wants the parts so maybe i could sell it faster as a running truck. But parts will still be available. Just moving forward with the build. Now that i have taken posession of the truck I can work on it easier.

    I have been friends with Yuri since we were in elementary school, but no my name is Trevor. He is letting me either part out the truck or sell it whole because he doesn't have the time to do so. With him buying a house and getting married and all...But in the mean time I am trying to finish his build so he can at least see what would have been. So i'm moving forward with the build, but trying to sell it at the same time. This isn't work for me.........it's fun so I don't see a loss for me, just a win win for the both of us. So technically in about a week or so, the truck could possibly be running with that bad ass 3.6....if I don't sell the engine first....
