    I went and looked at an 86 4runner that is for sale localy. It is an 86 4x4 with a 22re that sorta runs & an automatic trans. It has been sitting for about a year due to a fuel leak, but has not seen the highway in several years as it was just used around the sellers property. The body is very nice & rust free. Not much is known about the condition of the trans but the seller does know that the 4wheel drive works. The price seems right, I am just worried about it being an auto trans. Has anyone in TW land ever owned anything with a 22re & automatic? I THINK that the auto trans models came with 4.88 gears, can anyone confirm or deny that?

    My intentions for this truck would be to build an off road warrior! It doesn't really even need to be street legal, even though it would be nice to be able to make the short trip to the local off road park with out putting it on the trailer. It would be a slow build project as money came avaliable, but I want something that I can wheel & not worry so much about tearing it up. I would consider swapping in a GM 4.3L V-6 & 700r4 down the road.

    Here is a pic, does anyone have any thought on it.

    the tailgate is missing, carpet has been removed & he rolled the floor boards with some bedliner stuff, front seats have been swapped for some vylin buckets, rear seat is missing, front door panels where painted with some black "vynil paint" that is half falling off, the rear inside panels are gone. I would like to get a tailgate for it but that other stuff doesn't mean a damn thing for a wheeling rig right? And the price is def. right.;)

    I say we get it running good & some cheap used tires first. But all in due time.

    I want to do another vortec v-6 swap. :cool:

    As long as the frame isn't rusted, it looks good.

    Yeah it's local, I will give you a call when I go back over there if you want to ride

    Actually, there is not a spot of rust on the whole thing, I could not belive it, they are know for being rust buckets

    You can see the seats he put in it already & he even put some kind of bed liner in the floor boards. there is a factory roll bar under the removeable hard top.

    That's weird. Has the frame been painted (to hide rust)?

    IDK, I will look a little more at the frame when I go back.

    I was going to try to jump it off but it did not have a battery at all. I said he bought a new batt for it, then when he lost interest he took the new batt out & put it in his wife's Rav 4

    I just picked up an 86 with an auto trans in the beginning of december. I wheeled it for the first time yesterday and plan to SAS it out here within the next 2 months. It will exceed your expectations! Buy it!

    Awesome, do you think that your rig is capable of 65 mph on the streets?

    Oh yeah. It easily goes 80 on highway/freeway drives. I have already driven it up to the snow (3 1/2 hours) mostly going 65+

    I should add.... its a little slow go when your getting up to 65 but just put it in overdrive once your around 40 and it will do just fine.

    Well ive updated it with about $2,000 since iv'e bought it. Do you have a pick n' pull or some sort of junkyard around you? Its one of the best place to get the minor parts for the rig. Also look to ebay and type in 84-89 4runner as your search. You'll be amazed at what you can get for your runner! Hope you end up getting it. Iv'e been having so much fun updating and messing around with everything. I think more than anything im not scared to break anything like i am with my tacoma. It makes the updating process that much more fun because you get your hands a little more dirty :D

    Good luck with your purchase!

    I just talked to the seller & he found the tailgate!! That is one less thing I need to worry about. I am pretty sure that I will pull the trigger on this thing. My wife doesn't even seem to be mad about it.........yet.;)
