    Over a month ago from Anchorage, AK I was once again on craigslist like a fucking stalker, this time looking for a TRD Supercharger. I found one in Houston, TX, the add was old but I figured it didn't hurt to ask. The guy still had it and a set of headers. He told me he had them for two years and were both still new in the box. Fast Forward two weeks. I am in TX for a class and he STILL has them. I can't seem to find the add posting anymore or how much he was asking. I ask him his asking price, he tells me 2500 for both. I explain I'm not intersted in headers and ask if he'll take 2000 for the S/C alone. He says yes without hesitation. For two weeks I try and get together with him and am unable too. I begin to think it's a scam. The morning I was supposed to meet him he is "out of town for an emergancy" and he conviniently won't be back in town until the dealership is closed. He wanted to meet at Walmart, I told him we can do the deal at the dealership so they can validate the condition of the S/C

    I give up on the deal and begin looking for the best deal I can find in TX before I go back to AK so I don't have to pay out the ass for shipping. Out of the blue the guy tells me he will have a friend of his meet me for the sale. I go pull money out of the ATM this morning and am only able to get 1800, I have 86 from last night. I explain my problem and ask if he'll take that, he agrees.

    I jump in the car and drive the three hours to meet the "friend" expecting the worst, either to get robbed or the S/C isn't really new, you name it I'm thinking it.

    I pull up to the guy, he pulls the box out of the trunk of his car. It looked like it was packaged from the factory, but then again I had never seen one. I cut the box open and it was as legit as could be. I pay the guy 1886 for a BRAND NEW TRD Supercharger!!!

    I'm pumped!!! :D:D :D :D

    CONGRATS! IMO, the TRD S/C is one of the best upgrades you can make to our trucks. (I'm VERY happy with mine.)

    Now, all you have to do is get it past TSA on your way back to AK... :eek:

    The pictures won't be anything special, I'm leaving it all in the plastic it came in, but I'll work on posting some this evening after class.

    The TSA is already on my bad side. I brought my bike down here with me and they kindly broke and lost shit for it when they opened it up to examine. I'll lose my mind if they fuck the S/C up.

    Any body got a great deal for the URD 7th injector kit?

    How does the tranny handle these super chargers? I heard the 4runners need some tranny mods to be able to handle them reliably.
