Default New Runner

Well, as the title says, got a new runner yesterday.

A little back story:

Friend Chris from Missouri and I got to talking last year during CM. We decided on a trade, as he had a 2000 third gen that would be great for me. I'd take the 2000, he'd take Skelator. We finally made the trade over CM this year, still odd to see someone else in my old rig. But he's enjoying it. Finally had some time to start working on the 2000. There was going to be about 4k worth of work to streamline maintenance. As Comprehensive was about to start, they found that the frame was bent.

So after a nice chat with friend Chris, he felt bad for not realizing how bad the 2000 was, decided to take that one back and buy my old runner. Awesome.

Yesterday, I took a drive(and back) down to Proffitts. After hanging out with JP a few weeks ago, I needed to look at Bob's runner. It was too good to pass up. Clean. I wrote Bob a check. He took off enough to have the shop do the timing belt and water pump. They'll do that while I'm in Iceland. I'm excited to get on the trail.


'99 Limited runner. 212k. Factory rear locker.
Lift, tires, ft ARB bumper. Supercharger.

I'll need to do ft cv's before CM. And Ham before Outlaws.

That's a nice 4runner. I have a 99 limited. Just a FYI, if the climate control gives u fits they can be rebuilt for less than 100 bucks typically.
