that paint looks an awful lot like mine did.  get some polishing compound, and I'll bet it turns dark red.

I can see the hood & front fenders have been repainted, thats why it looks like  :pokinit: The rest of the truck has the clear coat coming off here & there but I'm going to have it repainted when I'm done.

Probably not much at all, considering it was designed for a stock truck and the liability issues would lead to some conservative #s. :dunno: They are super cool bling though. :bling: :afro: :afro2:

Nice runner to start with. My first 4runner was an 87. I have the altimeter in mine. Its acurate if your not moving. When it had IFS I had it almost to 30* side to side and it scared the :pokinit: out of me. My buddy behind me said he could see my tires start to come off the ground. I will re-test it when the SAS is done. Good luck with your build.

The crank seal on my white Runner started leaking yesterday. I'll fix that this weekend & hopefully get the automatic tranny out.

I picked 5 of these up the other day. They are 33x12.5x15 Yomamas Gettolanders with 15x9 street locks. The rims are like new with no rock rash. I'll be putting the 35's on these & selling the 33's.

I'm going to keep the brown 4Runner as a daily driver for my wife. All the mods that I had planned for the brown Runner will now be done to the white Runner.
