    I currently have a 2004 TRD Tacoma Pre-Runner V-6 but am looking to add something a little sportier to the stable. With that being said, I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find a solid Tacoma S-Runner at? I am open to normally aspirated or supercharged applications? However, I can't emphasize enough that I don't want something that has been thrashed on its whole life. Just a nice, solid, well cared fro and maintained S-Runner.

    Please let me know what you have and if it is easier feel free to email me @ mx4life167@hotmail.com with info.

    I truly appreciate the help!!

    I think S Runners are supercharged from the factory I believe.

    Are you looking specifically for an S Runner or a good 5 lug build?

    There was not very many produced - shit, I've only ever seen half a dozen in person...
    The S Runner is essentially the 1st gen X Runner and IIR they did not come factory with the s/c for the 3.4 but it could be added.

    From 2001-2004 Toyota produced the "S-Runner" model in limited numbers. It is based off the 2WD extended cab Tacoma. Toyota then added the 5VZ-FE V-6 engine and a "5 speed only" manual transmission as well as a bunch of other mods that are exclusive to this model only and call it the "S-Runner". Alot of guys that own these trucks put on the 3.4L TRD supercharger that is available through Toyota. That is why I stated that I am looking for one that is either supercharged or normally aspirated.

    From 2005-2013 Toyota produced the "X-Runner" which is basically the same style platform as mentioned above, but comes with the 4.0 liter engine and "6 speed only" transmission. Toyota's TRD 4.0 liter supercharger will also fit this model. Sadly, Toyota has discontinued this model for 2014.

    Just a little history for you guys that were trying to guess what exactly I was referring to. I have driven both of these trucks in both applications and because of the lower center of gravity and minimal power to weight ratio are just a BLAST to drive!! If you would like, do some research for yourselves and check out some of the TRD supercharged X-Runner videos on You Tube. Some of the numbers these little trucks are putting up are quite impresive to say the least.

    Enjoy!!

    I've been looking for a non thrashed one myself for a while. There's a couple on adhuntr, but all look beat or far, far away. Go luck on your search.

    I am not familiar with ad hunter? Can you please educate me a bit. I don't mind the drive if it is worth it?

    Thanks

    Adhuntr.com = It's a search site that lets you search the whole country at once using multiple websites such as craigslist.com from one search box.
