    1988 4runner
    lifted 33-12.5-15s
    New here but a long time Toyota 4runner owner, I only have bought 1 new vehicle in my life and that was in 1988 when I wanted to get a reliable SUV for my wife and my 5 month old son. I had a distant family member that worked as a salesman at Toyota of Hollywood and he got me a good deal on a 1988 Toyota 4runner 22re, light blue, automatic.

    Well the wife drove it a few months and decided that it was a pain in the butt to put our son in the back seat having to open passenger side and move seat up to get him in. Being the genius I am told her that we got such a good deal on it that it would be stupid to get rid of it so I found a old Honda wagon 4 door cheap and ole blue became my daily runner.

    I always liked the looks of the first Gen 4runners and still do to this day I can look at it all day long and go Wow that's an awesome truck, She's no longer my daily runner at 190,000 plus miles and minor comfort issues like no A/C and weak heater and god forbid no blue tooth or navigation, but I cant ever imagine getting rid of her as its seen so much and has way to many memories, so I will keep it till I die, and build it as I can. Glad to find a place where others love their 4runners as much as I do!
