    Hello! I am brand new to forums and selling. However, I have a 95 4Runner that has a bad motor. I know that there are parts on this car that people need or want. I live in a household full of 4 men (1 husband and 3 sons) that tell me to just junk it. I refuse and if they don't want to help me maybe some folks here can. I would like to part this car out. Any advice will be appreciated! There are some very nice parts especially inside. I look forward to hearing from anyone interested.

    None...yet...
    Why not just put a new motor in and keep going? Anything you part out will also have to be taken apart...much easier to sale if you remove the parts people want. If your family is not on board it may be a tuff road without help.

    oh the list....!
    Agree with previous poster. What kind of shape is she in body, frame, etc. disregarding the motor? If the rest of the 4runner is solid, a new motor may put you light years ahead of a car payment. Just sayin' Pics? # of miles?

    Thank you for responding. I will get some pics posted this week. I have considered putting a new motor in it but have been told that it isn't worth it. I think it would be! However, I am just not sure. It has gone through three teenage boys. The front seat area is not great but not awful. From the front seat back is in perfect condition. Has brand new tires! I just think it is a shame for it to just sit there. They just wanted to junk it and I said no! So here I am. Pics will come soon. Thank you again.
