    First Name:
    2006 V8 SE ZombieRunner


    2006 4Runner SE
    V8 AWD
    96k Miles

    Interior -
    Factory Black / Grey cloth sport interior
    Full power seats Driver & Passenger
    Toyota Manual and books in glove box
    Full weathertech floor liners (front, rear and cargo area)
    All gauges and lights are white & red LED
    Factory Navi - with upgraded SCION/Pioneer head unit (red & white to match) with HD Radio & BLUETOOTH connectivity and hands free calling. Has other apps, I don't use them.
    Kicker speakers all around, system sounds perfect
    ABS disconnect button to left of steering wheel for offroad purposes (don't have to pull fuse anymore). IN = ABS, OUT = ABS disconnected
    Custom 'Zombie lights" Light bar button in center console next to DSC button
    Soundproofing (dynamat style product) from rear hatch all the way to front seats for temp and sound barrier
    Carbon Fiber wrap on center stack
    FULL white LED map light and dome light (even cargo light) conversion, very easy to see. Red LED in doors
    Factory Cargo shelf and also self retracting cargo cover.
    Removed factory jack and tools for weight and they are useless with lift and aftermarket wheels/lugs (high-lift jack mounted to tire swingout).
    Factory 115v AC outlet plug in center console (switch left of steering wheel)

    Exterior -
    Matte OD Green vinyl wrap with custom graphics overlaid (to protect perfect paint and it looks cool). I did this myself and it is not perfect, but everyone tells me it looks great. I am just very picky. The roof is black so if the OD Green is removed it can be left alone in case you re-wrap in another color. Also black looks good with factory color (as with all colors).
    Shrockworks front bumper with stinger, custom mods for this particular vehicle, ready for winch and LED light bar if desired. Black shackles with red daystar poly ring washers to eliminate play and noisey movement.
    McNeil Racing Fiberglass front fenders (not painted under wrap, but paint read).
    Distressed Flag rear window decals MATTE BLACK to fit theme, will look amazing even if wrap is removed from vehicle.
    Custom front grill with TOYOTA lettering.
    55w HID projector headlights (black) with LED fogs in bumper.
    Custom rock sliders, coated with Dupli-Color BED ARMOR for easy re-application as needed, matches color scheme of bumpers.
    Customized CBI rear bumper with tire swing out. Body and step bars added, as well as high-lift jack mount, and Jerry Can fuel holder (included). Rear camera mounted to swing out for best camera view and protection from off-road hazards. Hitch receiver, and clevis shackle ready.
    Custom exhaust exit through bumper.
    Brand new german glass windshield
    Stealth LED light bar mounted to factory roof rack - operated by ZOMBIE LIGHTS button on center console.

    Suspension -
    Total Chaos chromoly upper control arms with UNI-BALL and poly bushings.
    Total Chaos chromoly lower control arms with UNI-BALL and poly bushings, and 2nd shock provisions.
    King adjustable damper coilovers with remote reservoir
    Shock tower reinforcement weld in frame supports
    Total Chaos weld in boxed steering knuckles
    Weld in alignment control tabs (prevents alignment change from offroading)
    Front sway bar removed
    Poly steering rack bushings (Part# )
    Bilstein 5160 shocks with remote reservoir
    Toytec springs

    Wheels/Tires and Brakes -
    Fuel Beast 20x12.5 wheels
    Cooper STT Pro tires 35x13.5
    Matching full spare mounted on rear bumper swing-out
    ARP hardened and longer studs on all 4 wheels
    Longer lug nuts for more thread count and ease of tire removal / installation
    Drilled and slotted rotors with HD pads (have a full set of new in box toyota pads front and rear also)

    Power Train -
    Volant CAI
    Doug Thorley headers - ceramic coated
    Full 2.5" exhaust with magnaflow straight through design muffler, rear bumper side exit (no cabin fumes on freeway like the factory exhaust). This looks amazing, only one like it, sounds SICK and eliminated ground clearance/ off-road issues.
    Has spiral core high-flow cats (same size as factory) but the computer doesn't like them. They went through emissions but the CEL comes and goes for a P0420 code (cat efficiency). Seems the be right on the threshold line for what the computer wants. You can remove and tune (already sent PCM file to tuner, just waiting on software company to respond), or get O2 sims. I used to have these but they went bad, and I put the cat back on for emissions. Underdog Racing has the same part# O2 sims I had prior, but they are listed for a V6 model, and they tell me they won't work, even though they worked fine before - might be worth a try.
    Always Mobil 1 synthetic 5w-30 oil and SHELL 91 octane gas ( I do this in all my vehicle and is a winning combination).
    New gear oil in both differentials
    Brand new TOYOTA front CV's and seals

    I'm sure I am missing things, but will add as I remember.

    This is the best example of this vehicle I have ever seen, and is an amazing riding / driving one as well. I drove this daily for a bit while looking for a daily driver car, and I didn't want to switch back, it was so pleasing. EVERYTHING works perfectly on this truck, and it is in amazing condition. It's very hard to find an example of this era runner with these miles, let alone in this condition.I don't have the rust issues known on other 4runners. I would not hesitate to take this across country (even taking back roads), and back all day long over & over...I mean, it's a Toyota! And there is nothing of concern, at all.

    I have spent countless hours and blood/sweat/skin (no tears) on this vehicle and I love it very very much. I really don't want to let it go but I need the money for my personal business and have convinced myself that this will ALLOW me to build another one later. I have over $48k invested in this truck (and it shows) and I don't pay for labor as I am the only one the that touches it, but more importantly it is very dialed in! This thing is amazing off-road (shows up lifted Jeeps regulary even without having lockers like they do). Drives amazing on road as well, and turns heads everywhere it goes. I cannot say enough about my love for this truck and I do have a heavy heart with this transaction.

    Please understand that I cannot sell for less than what is truly fair for this build. I have many examples saved of poorer condition trucks with nearly double the mileage and crap upgrades selling in the $20K range. I am looking for a good home, with a knowledgeable owner who will not only love this truck, but honor it with correct maintenance and giving it the care it deserves. This 4runner should be out there for a long time, barring a catastrophe. This is not built to be the biggest, or rock crawling best..I chose everything carefully to get a very strong all around, and very capable but reliable vehicle. I believe it is just that.

    I look forward to finding the next owner of my favorite SUV

    I registered for this site just so I could look at this vehicle but it won't let me open the photos. Do you have another link?
