Post by: red86runner on Jan 08, 2011, 09:07:20 AM
ok so i ended up with my dads 86 4runner that he loved but wasn't quite sure how to take it the next step, but i was. finally i got to do the sas and make some 35's fit and get the dam front tires forward away from the cab. so to b honest if it wasn't for my wife, daughter, and my in laws i would still b ifs on 32's, life is short so do all u can.
OK so here we go its the first time Ive done a thread so ill do the best i can. :crossed:

im currently in the process of redoing my exhaust, put a cat back on and its carb legal, added a dynomax muffler to see if some needed back pressure would help my torque and hp's. and its all not just for that but im adding as second gas tank, small maby ten gallon tank outa my 73 chevy luv project i saved this tank its perfect guna come out of the wheel well on the drivers side guna suck to fill em both gota turn around but who cares lower center of gravity and more balanced with extra gas cant wait. working out the kinks of the transfer pump and the fuel gauge but all this while im doing the exo. guna hide my second batt under also.  :beerchug: wish me luck having fun waking up at 6 to squeeze in some work before work.

are you going to run a tube across the top of the fender and tie it into the front bumper? i think it looked beter with the black rims but hell its one nice runner
Title: Re: the family build of my little girls wheeler
Post by: red86runner on Sep 15, 2011, 08:23:09 AM
i have the tubeing for the front just got tired of tubeing work and the black wheels and the procomp tires i sold for the funds and after driveing on them for 2 years i got twice what i paid for them then i bought the 37 mtrs that are 80% and they came with the wheels i want black steel soft d's with like 2inch of back spaceing and rock rings then run stan's for locks. money is tite so i get what i got and ill eventualy swap em out, im working on the spare tire carrier and mounting my high lift and 2 gas cans, then guna build a hot water shower with the heat tube that goes on your heater hose and then save for an arb fridge so the fam is comfortable on long adventures, wife, little girl, and our two dogs its a blast but cold food and warm showers sound a little better than sweet rims. :beerchug:
