    I finally bought my “dream car”. Just got a 92 with the 3.0, 4wd. Only 173k. So far seems to be in great shape!
    First time 4Runner owner so will definitely have lots of questions and seeking advice!

    Above the clouds... I live at an elevation of 9200ft. I live a little higher than the closest town and they call it the city above the clouds. Many mornings, because the way the clouds roll up the valley, we are definitely looking down over them. 43BB9B1B-05B8-4E33-8ACD-1BE257FBB1ED.jpg

    Pikes Peak is literally in my back yard. Nothing but National Forrest between us and the peak!

    Just a few days in to this... new exhaust (cat, “flow master”, tailpipe), new O2 sensor, new windshield, lots of scrubbing and cleaning on the interior and playing with some home-made graphics.
    Planning on trying some light trails in the mountains this weekend!

    There is no photoshop or new paint to that truck?
    What do you use & do you travel? That looks amazing! Congratulations.
    Fine truck.

    It doesn't even appear to be the same color.
    You have a talent!

    Thanks!! I’m sure being in direct sunlight helps a little. But the driver side is still original and I promise you can tell the difference.

    Maybe a little better comparison. Both in the sunlight.

    You’re right Mark!
    Just trying to decide if I’m gonna paint them or go with a smaller fender flare.
