    The Story:

    In August of 2014, I ventured out on the WABDR with a group of 10 from TW and T4R to see the natural beauty of Washington. I'll skip some of the boring stuff, but what transpired from this event was meeting @awilson13 & @GSPRunner. We ventured off to do the WABDR while the remainder hit Moon Rocks (or was it funny rocks?). 3 days and 2 nights later, I had the desire for a 4runner. Thanks to Alex and Joe, 99-00 were my target years. Their builds being my inspiration. Throughout the next few years, I tried to find a 4runner that I liked, but none fit the bill. In 2016 I bought one. A white 99, Limited w/ Locker. About a month into it I decided it just wasn't the one. So I sold it, and continued to search CL. I was looking for something to build, but it was difficult to find the proper base to work with. After many unsuccessful months, I decided to start building my Tacoma for MOAB instead of going forward with a T4R.

    Fast forward to 02/17, Alex posts that his 4runner just sold. I couldn't believe I missed it... But by the grace of someone mightier than myself, a week later he posts that it is back up for sale. The rest is history - Alex treated this thing amazingly and I hope to continue what had inspired him originally for this runner. MOAB 2017 HERE WE COME!

    Glad you picked it up man it's probably the nicest around. Glad it will stay in the circle, I'll get to see it around and you'll use it like it should be used!

    Not far at all.

    Can't wait to take it out, March 4th will be the first run. Changed out the corners today (Thanks Alex!) and replace the burnt out bulbs. Was super happy to find an extra 100w bulb in the glovebox courtesy of Alex.

    Truthfully I wanted to try something different than Duratracs, but I got a great price on them. and even though unnecessary, if i would've went a different route i'd have wanted to change out the spare as well

    Bronze Stealth 6's - I have 4 on the way, and will be looking for a 5th.

    I thought so too @GSPRunner


    @AWilson013 has been of great support since transfer of ownership. Seriously I doubt there is a better person to do business with. Thank you kindly my friend.
