Default Glad I listened to you guys!

Well about a year ago I bought a 97' 4runner as a DD. still is my DD but it is a little bit of a weekend warrior too!

in my original thread showing when I got it, everyone was telling me to mod it. Well you guys got to me, and over the course of a year I did some work to it. now I REALLY like it.

mods include

running board delete
Chrome fender trim delete
painted wheels black
3" OME Lift
285/75/16 BF Goodrich A/Ts

and thats about it. Probably going to regear next so I can continue to get good gas mileage.

But anyways heres some pictures! before and after!

Looks great. Time for some sliders. Keep in mind how long it will take to break even on gas savings vs. gear swap cost. If you can live with the slight reduced power of 285's, I'd keep the gears stock.

Since were on the subject, do 4cyl 4runners have lower ratios?
