Located in Colorado Springs, CO

As much as I don’t want to, the time has finally come to sell my 4Runner.  A growing family means I need to change vehicles.  I have had this truck for 10 years and have done the majority of upgrades and customization myself, along with the help of my father and Matt Thompson at 3D Offroad in Colorado Springs, CO.  This is a very custom truck and although there are other 1st generation 4Runners out there, I have never seen or heard of another one like this.  This truck can do it all.  I have driven it across the country and back without issue.  I have towed a 16’ camper to Moab, UT, wheeled all week, and driven back without issue.  It has done all kinds of trails from Pritchett Canyon in Moab, UT to the Independence Trail system in Penrose, Colorado with many in between.  I currently daily drive this truck just because it is so much fun to drive.  It will drive 80 MPH down the highway no problem.

With enough time and money, you can do anything. Too bad I don't have enough of either.
