I built this 4Runner to take me and my family (6 of us) to, over, through and home from the harder trails in the western U.S. It is built with a large enough tire size, yet with as little lift as possible to keep the CG low. The truck is very flexy and gets lots of traction. I have been slowly improving on it for the last 10 years and it has a mix of some old school and some newer parts.

I will be attending nursing school for the next 3 years which will leave me absolutely zero 4wheeling time. The last thing I want to do is watch the mice and the sun eat this truck as it sits in my yard over the next several years.
My driving style is to get through the trail with as little damage as possible, which shows on this rig. It has seen some good trail and street use, but never abused.
I have receipts for some of the above listed mods.
I am 30 minutes north of Fresno, CA
I will not be parting out, or trading this 4Runner, don't ask.$6500 OBO
