    I got a buddy who has a 4runner he is planning on converting the front end to look like my truck. I just wanted everyone opinion on this setup. Also is this pretty easy to convert the front end to the tacoma look?

    It would look pretty sick if the truck was long travel up front.

    ^^ I think your/that truck looks pretty sick... I duno why he would really want to convert the front to a Tacoma though, I think 4Runners look good.

    Wow. Looks good. At first glance I thought it actually was a tacoma with a linear or some cover. I am surprised how well the lines flow. It looks like it was supposed to be on there. Good conversion with a great set up.

    Mind = Blown. That 4Coma looks like Toyota designed it like that! Everything flows so nicely!

    But why? Seems like a waste of time, fabrication, and a front end. I would only do it if the 4runner got in a front end collision and I had a spare Tacoma front end laying around.

    This is awesome! Below is exactly what I was thinking about when I saw it.

    This is a TacoRunner I would buy in a heartbeat. Is there a for sale thread about it?

    too damn many
    thats one of the coolest conversions ive seen, my all time favorite is the lowered silverados in the houston area where converting the front end to match the tahoe and avalanche. the silver one would be one id consider buying if i had an extra 10 grand laying around
