    I am going to finally try to catch my build up on here as well as T4R.
    i started at 16 with a 95 4runner which i drove about a year and blew the motor
    bought a 99 trd tacoma 5speed lifted 6", 3" body and 3" suspension.
    I then traded that tacoma title for title for a 96 limited 4runner which i drove for about 2 years and then flipped it! which sucked but it brings me to my currently owned 2002 4runner.
    current as of: October 5th

    ill send you a message here and I subed to this build thread, I don't have an instagram so that would make it difficult to reach you there.

    any major plans for your trailer? My buddy and I built a box on mine and I have a rtt on top and can carry two dirtbikes on the fenders.
