    So i bought myself this 97 4Runner 4x4 3.4L out of one of the auctions we purchase our inventory from, i got it for $2900. I plan on building it from all the take off aftermarket parts we get from other 4Runners we buy that never really sell. Ill post up the pictures as i go along and see how far and for how cheap i can build this..... and here we go!
