I think you got that wrong DTB.  1st Generation 4Runners 84-89 were as far as I know only 2 door.  There were a few rare 1990 2nd gen 4Runners that were two door but most of the 2nd Gens were 4 door.  :slap:

most are 4 door.....i think you mean 2 door runners. Yes, they were made and no there arent a whole lot of them left
:nonono: not 1st gen runners...they are two door.  they went to 4 door in the 2nd gen, and it is with those that the 2door is rare.

ya i know...i always get confused that the years for 2nd gen TRUCKS are actually the same as 1st gen runners and 2nd gen runners are the same years as 3rd gen trucks....or something like that ...I give up  :hammer:

So at what year do toyota stop being refered to as Xgeneration?
I would have to say 96.All the earlier models were reffered to as X-generation because there was no other model name for them (exept hi-lux) but they weren't really called that here in America.The reason there's first and second gen 4-Runners is because there was 2 different generations,the Trekker or Traiblazer are considered the first generation 4-Runners by some people but in reality they're not because they weren't called 4-Runners...96 and up pick-ups are Tacomas but can be considered 4th and 5th generation pick-ups.I HAVE heard a couple of people say first or second generation tacomas,96-04 being first gen and 05+ being second gen.IMO Tacomas shouldn't be considered any generation,just Tacomas.

I saw them called 4th gen in one of the offroad mags, they were saying how nobody sees them on the trails and then they showed a group at moab calling them 4th and 5th gens.

So the Wolverine was the name of the 2WD to 4WD Hilux conversions in the 70s? If so, then can anyone tell me what this is??

From what I understand, wolverine is the company that did the conversions.

O dear God!!  That thing is hideous!!  I love it!!  That is awesome.  Wonder who did those conversions?  I've never seen those before.

It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. "

I think it is sweet, kind of looks like a toyota wearing one of those Rasta beanies....I too am very curious to find out who made it. Never saw it till it popped up in a thread on pirate a few days ago.

There were 3 companies who converted the first gens, right?  Trekker, trailblazer (?) and ???  I'm just too lazy to look up the 3rd company.

Well no, I dont believe the companies that made them were called Trekker or Trailblazer, that was just the name of the conversion vehicle. Winnebego created at least one of them, not certain which one though. I want to say the Trekker was the Winnebego but dont quote me on that.

Yeah, the big question is WTF is the thing I posted?! So far no one has been able to figure this out, PBB or elsewhere. I am extremely curious now.

This is way cool!  Props to you Peps!  :thumbs:


now what about a picture of the toyota's that have more than an extra cab and it came up higher than the cab.  Damn I cannot remember the name.    I think they were second gen.  (I know my description is horrible :yesnod: )

I would love one for a daily driver.  there is one in santa cruz i see it occasionally.

Yeah the custom cabs are alright, way too long though. Really only suitable for a DD. Be kind of cool to turn one into a very mild camping rig. A kid at my college has 3 of them, ones a pavement pounder on 44s, the other is a "wheeler" and the other is stock. IMO the 147" wheelbase is not going to help out on the trail though.
