    So let me just start this out by saying the following;

    I had no intention of buying this 4Runner. I happened to be browsing Craigslist and the ad caught my eye and seemed to be one of those too-good-to-be-true deals, so I had to take a look.

    The 4Runner is a 1997 Limited edition with sunroof and leather. It has a first gen TRD supercharger on it (V6). Yes it is automatic :(

    Here's the best part, the 4Runner has 86,000 miles on it and I got it for $3500........ :bounce:

    Now on to the pics!

    The wheels are hideous, but luckily I have a set of 5 spoke TRD wheels from my Tacoma with tires that I will put on. The running boards are gonna go and I will not be driving it until my new radiator comes in (avoiding the dreaded milkshake!) There is less rust on this 4Runner than there is on my Tacoma! Plans are simple, just another toy, gonna keep things simple. Once my supercharger comes back from a rebuild for the Tacoma, I will have 2 supercharged 3.4's :D

    Thanks! I couldn't believe it!

    I thought about it but i've always really wanted a 3rd gen 4Runner.

    I have no idea how much they were new, but i know I basically stole it! lol
