I am posting this for a friend, but If interested, call me at 970-420-4198 Or PM me. This belongs to my old shop manager and lead fabricator. I can answer your questions. SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY PLEASE!

Here is his Ad:

Here's what I've got...1987 Toyota 4runner. 22RE, 5spd. Silver on black with new paint. You will not find a cleaner solid axle rig anywhere IMO. Its that clean and needs to be seen to appreciate it. I will take some more pics ASAP and get more posted. In the meantime, here are the specs:

Front- Trail Gear SAS 3" lift

The front axle is an 85' axle and was torn down completely and rebuilt. It looks like a new axle. I used ARP studs and added knuckle ball gussets, upper axle truss and large diff guard. Also, we recently rebuilt the front axle due to a bad inner axle seal. All new rebuild kit including Marlin inner axle seals and installed some 27 spline cromoly birfields at the same time.

Rear- TG 4" lift

5125 Bilstein shocks on all four corners.

Both driveshafts were rebuilt and balanced with CVs at both ends. Front is an long travel shaft with an AllPro 8" slip joint. Balanced perfectly for high speed 4wd use.

4.88's in both diffs.

TG dual case crossmember setup for a single case.

58" rock sliders. Frame was plated and gusseted for added strength

Front Range off Road front winch bumper with Warn hs9500i winch. Front crossmember was reinforced for winching and the old weak brakets removed.

Custom rear bumper. This is a heavy duty bumper and is designed for towing. I have loaded some heavy loads of rock in my trailer when landscaping my backyard without an issue at all.

33x12.50x15 BFG AT's with 75% tread left on Alcoa's in perfect shape.

Interior is all SR5 with inclinometer and in VERY clean shape. You will not find a cleaner rig.

22re runs strong and the rig has approx 250k but I do not know if the engine is original or not. I would expect that it was rebuilt/replaced, but cannot be certain. It runs great, shifts great, and drives great.

The 4runner initially wasn't equipped with A/C. However, I grabbed and complete A/C system and installed it with a new dryer/condenser. It just needs to be charged and pressure tested. I just never got around to it. So, it has A/C.

Pioneer head unit with MP3/CD/Ipod input. Rockford Fosgate speakers. Sounds great.

This rig is in exceptionally clean condition and I'm very meticulous about maintaining it. All the work was done by Scotty and I at Addicted Offroad and I'm sure he'll chime in at some point and vouch for the cleanliness of this rig. It drives very true and straight down the road and can easily hold speed at 80mph without worry. No vibes, and no wandering. This rig was definitely built right, and not half-assed like a lot of other rigs out there I have seen.

I am looking to trade it for a clean 3rd gen 4runner. Stock to mild build and it needs to be a 3.4L A/T. I would prefer no sunroof since I am 6'5", but would deal with one for the right rig. I would also consider a clean 93-97 Land Cruiser. If I were to sell it outright, I would ask $7500 for it.

Its located in Windsor, CO.

I've had a couple guys think they were gonna get away with trading their wife's rig and they quickly got veto'd. One guy even e-mailed me and said he wanted my rig bad and his wife would either drive his Tundra or walk. He e-mailed me a couple days later with his tail between his legs and backed out.:rolleyes:
