    Hey!

    Figured I'd make an introduction here while waiting for the t4r forum to figure out I'm not a spammer.

    Just picked up a 99 4runner Limited for a crazy goddamn good deal. Pretty excited to get working on it.. needs a little TLC. Just created about a page long list of things that need to be done.. ranging from a vacuum (it's fucking filthy), to oil change, to replacing the rear axle seal and brake shoes. Planning on getting dirty over the weekend.

    Drives so smooth, was definitely a good buy! Can't wait to do some work so it feels like it really belongs to me.

    Will try and throw up a pic in a moment!

    Still a big ass NO sucka :p
    Nothing really. Someone hit it while parked so I need a taillight and fender flare. Hoping to source one. Just maintenance.. This weekend I'm replacing the rear axle seal which of course ruined the brake shoes, and am degreasing the engine, cleaning TB and MAF. Oh, and an oil change.

    Verry nice
    I doubt I even have to drop that since all the work will be done in the driveway. You never know though.

    I've put in 2000 on my new old LS430 so far but that's including a new set of tires. Always (not really) fun working on cars.

    Go for it.. and thanks!
    I was lucky enough to already have a good set of tires on them at 50% tread. I'm excited to work on the 4runner but I'm sure it will wear off.

    I just noticed that monster truck behind your rig.
    Is that yours also?
    Wow!

    I'm actually being taught how to do this by my bf, he's MonkeyProof on Tacomaworld. The rule is he isn't allowed to do anything to my runner without me. (Although he is allowed to do things like clean in lol). So now he's working on his Taco and I'll get to finish doing the brakes when I get home. If it can be done in the driveway, I always want to learn how to fix something.

    My rear axle seal was leaking so bad, I had to get hosed off in the front yard when I finished replacing it. :laugh:
