    '98 Natural White T4R SR5 4x4 5 speed w/e-locker
    Hello all, I'm new to this forum and a new 4 Runner owner. I have a pretty heavily modified '14 Tacoma as well, but I needed a second vehicle after selling all of my other cars over the past few years. I've been looking off and on for about 3 years for a nice 3rd gen and I bought this Natural White '98 SR5 4x4 5 speed and factory locker last week and love it so far. It has 225k miles and was basically bone stock. It's in great shape and the previous owner kept up on maintenance so it drives really nice. I test drove a bunch of other 4 Runners and other than an '01 Limited with around 100k miles this '98 drove the best. It's hard to find nice, clean 3rd gen runners here in the PNW that aren't super expensive so I was stoked to get this one for a good price.

    My plans for it are pretty simple:

    Lift (so far I have some used Ironman coils/struts with 3/8 top plate spacer on the way, and getting some OME 890's and Bilstein 5100's for the rear)
    Wheels and tires
    Floor mats of some type (Probably Weathertechs or Husky)
    Sliders
    Tint
    Skids (maybe)
    Tundra brake upgrade
    URD short shifter
    Seat covers
    LED interior lights
    Remove rear bumper and flip tow package or weld the hitch between the frame rails.
    LED reverse lights
    Front recovery point

    I'll be making a build thread at some point. I'm looking forward to becoming part of the community here. :D
