View Full Version : Some Unique Toyotas Here in CO

10-04-2009, 07:14 PM
I was at my buddy Lee's house today with Mitchell, who is and has been a Toyota nut for many years, and is also a vintage BMX bike collector.

Here is is show mini, an '89 mini with IFS that rides on 44" Cepecks, and has been in 2 magazine features. It has everything powder coated and custom paint. 4-5 chrome shocks are at each wheel. The 36's are on the rear to get it into the garage. A definate blast from the past. Anyone still stuck in the 80's like me will appreciate it for what it is. And it is a beautiful work of art that he actually daily drove for a few years. It will cruise the highway at 70 mph no prob. with good road manners. You could eat lunch off the under side if you wanted to. He has owned it for many years, since 20,000 miles:

This is his 2002 Doublecab Prerunner that lives upto the name. Full 'glass, Fox front 3.0 shock with a 3.0 Race Runner coilover with a remote resi, the rears are 3.0 Fox triple bypasses, hydro bumps up front, full bed cage, Deaver springs, e-locker, Walker Evans beadlocks on 33x10.50's.
His latest aquisition from Brian (thefatkid), is a second gen Runner, a 3.4 conversion, with now a full Total Chaos front end (13" travel), 4x4 with 4.56's, with T-100 shafts, Fox 2.0 single tube bypass remote resi, rear is E-locked with 62" Alcan springs (sprung under), YES, the facotry rear link suspension was removed, 14" Rancho shocks thru the floor, a work in progress soon to get tube bumpers and 2.0 resi shocks in the rear. It has original 15x7 genuine Centerline rims on 32" Mud Terrains.

Very nice, I like them all but would really like the 4runner in my garage. I know what I could do with the 4Runner and have to keep looking till I can find my own.

I bolted a Suzuki Sidekick to my 2nd gen 4Runner axles.
