i got one very similar... i'd do all that, except the body lift... here's mine... keep in mind, this is a pavement princess... first time it's been off road (the truck, not me)


what year is yours? 96? 97? 98?

my actual wheeling rig is a 90 3.0 4x4 4runner auto with sliders, and OME rear coils... everything else is BONE STOCK

It's a 97 looking at getting some 12" fox shocks off pirate right now and I'm going with the heavy duty OME spings in the rear as well. This is my fourth toy so far. I had a 89 p/u, 88 runner, and a 87 fully exo'd p/u locked front and rear that I never took out. I just need a good DD that could get me to the good spots with no problem.

yeah... the red truck in the pic runs on OME medium coils... 881/890 i believe... on nitrocharger shocks... rides really really well.. except i keep about 80lbs in the trunk for comfort reasons...

if ur interested, i got some landcruiser coils you can have for cheep... fits right into the back of your truck... i ran them and couldn't fit into a home garage, so i had to run something with less lift...

It's a nice 4runner you have and it's good to see you actually using it. You should really take those running boards off it gives it a way nicer look and more clearence.

Here's a pic of my runner with the 3" coil spacer lift and with the running boards off. As well with the new tires but they rub way to much so I need to get a 2" body lift now

LOL, nice to see a couple 4x4'ers. I've got a 92 runner. Needs a rear locke something bad, probably going to get an Aussie.

Haven't decided what to do for suspension. I'm kinda torn on the body lift/coil spacer thing. I wanna either do an OME lift but I know that down the line i'm going to want something more so i'm debating if I should just wait and get the trail gear stuff and do a sas...

^ no contest there. Just save up a little more and go solid axle with the trail gear kit. I have helped install a couple of those kits, good quality parts and easy to come by.

East stave down Sylvester is a awesome spot, not to far away and tons of trails. As well East and West harrison is really good for camping and exploring old logging roads and Norrish has awesome trails as well but they closed it down for some logging for something.

I used to have a 87 toy p/u exo'd and all that but I didn't have the money so I had to sell it.

Was supposed to do West Harrison to Pemberton today but homework won. How long does it take to go there and back assuming no problem?

Wondering if I can do it after work on a weekend.

Well I actually got some more work finished today. Just need to tighten the body mounts up toss on the tires and fit, paint and weld on the sliders and I will be good to go

I was going to change the timing change and water pump but found out it was changed at 94k for some reason and with only 218k on the truck and being in mint shape no point changing it. I guess I bought a timing belt, water pump and T-stat for no reason

truck looks pimpin'!

the only problem most people have with their stock rims is when tire shops hammer on wheel weights without waxing the rim edge first... and then strip them off without lube... that's what happened to mine...

let me know if ur actually selling your rims.. if they're reasonably priced, i'll strongly consider it... i need a set of tires to run on for the time being as baaaald BFG all terrains are scary in the rain, and my new tires are currently on back order...
