I just found out i have a baby on the way so I need to change up my daily driver a bit. The main requirement being that it have AC.

What you get:

1987 Toyota 4runner
sr5
5spd
no a/c
2.8 inline 6 motor (5mge)
2 inch drivetrain lift
3inch body lift
Just passed emissions
Full custom exhaust
Budbuilt x member
31inch BFGs
15x8 Outlaw wheels
heavy duty radiator
Body-decent
interior-decent
runs-great
power windows, locks
rear window works fine
Removable top

It still has the stock tranny and t-case. The motor has roughly 50hp more and still gets decent MPG. I also set up the wiring so if I wanted to drop in the 227hp supra turbo motor(7mgte) or 200hp 7mge it is simply plug and play. Or you could simply bolt up the 7mgte turbo bits onto the 5mge and call it good. All around it is a great truck, but it isn't perfect. It has the parking lot dings and paint that you would expect of a truck of this vintage. I have put 10k on it since the swap and drive it every day.

EDIT:

Well, I picked up a 99 4runner for the wife, but I am still thinking of fixing my situation, So maybe this will sweeten the pot a bit:

The 4runner listed above and....

1998 Honda SuperHawk streetfighter
996cc V-twin sportbike
Acerbic Cyclops headlight
14k miles
New Conti RoadAttack tires


Asking price = 5k or trade for a decent rig (lockers/lift are a plus ) that has A/C. I have a kid on the way and apparently it is frowned upon to have them strapped in the car seat of a topless truck in the blazing sun, go figure

Wow, somebody grab this!
More BL than I would want (2 in. is perfect for a 4Runner, as it allows a fuel tank lift), but I'm sure it can be adjusted. What a great SAS this would make!

Unless you want to cut up the floor the 3 inch body lift was needed to run the drivetrain lift with the supra engine because it sits higher in the frame. Roughly 3 inches higher. The 5mge/22re motor mount bracket combo uses the stock frame side mounting points and keeps the tranny and case in the stock location front to back.

So is it 5K for both?

What do you want for just the 4runner? What kind of condition is the interior in?

The truck I wanted was sold before any of the tire kickers could come up with the cash. I guess I'll start looking for AC parts to swap in.
