Finally pulled the trigger and got a 4runner. I have been looking for weeks now with no luck. I did find one down in Reno and was almost about to get my one way ticket when I found this little gem not to far from me. A sale on the Tacoma as a complete rig fell threw so I decided to just keep as much as I could and throw it on the 4runner. In the next week or two I should have everything swapped over and start tracking down some new parts like tires and rear bumper, let the new build begin:coffeedrink:

The 'rock magnet' running boards have got to go! I hope that the front bumper goes as well! I look forward to seeing how this turns out!

What's wrong with running boards:bike_rider: It will get a set of sliders and I'm keeping the front Badland Bumper and winch off of the Tacoma, just have to do alittle fab work to make it fit.

Nice looking 3rd Gen. I'm jealous of your super charger. Be sure to take plenty of pictures of your buildup process!

Sometime soon I will get the trailer painted. Going to run my ICON's up front but not sure on back yet.

Good choice. I'm running the Bilstens in the rear with the Performance Products springs and could not be happier with them or their flex!

say it ain't so (weezerbot should appreciate that :D)! i... but... you.... what will become of your taco, sad and alone out there with no one to take it into the wilderness? all kidding aside, nice little runner man, everytime i see one with a charger i think, hmmmm, wouldn't that be nice. what are you going to do in terms of prepping your taco for sale, return to stock (figure that would be hard with the chevies in back), cheap lift up front?
