    Hey everyone!


    I'm a Nurse in the SoCal area and I recently purchased a 1991 4Runner Manual 4x4 ("Walt") to become my camping vehicle. I also plan on setting up as the pseudo medic tent whenever me and my friends go out to the dunes. Walt runs great, the only reason why his last owner sold him to me was because he has a tacoma camper he's living in now (and we're actually friends now). Little to no rust. The engine was redone by a previous owner and has 226,000 miles on it. Quite the find.


    Here are some things I would love to get done by the start of next snowboarding season:

    Roof Racks with tent/awning

    New Headlights/ roof light bar

    Bull/Push Bar

    Back-up Camera (backing up in a manual is risky business)

    New All Terrain Tires


    In 2022 I'll probably try to do a 3 inch lift and get some larger tires.


    I'm planning to turn Walt into Heisenberg (For all my breaking bad fans). So let me know if all of this is even possible. I'm extremely new to the community and I would love a realistic opinion. I posted this same post in the New Members group.


    I'll be posting progress pictures soon!

    Haha. I do need the hat!

    Yea Walt has been well taken care of. The last guy who owned him was a youtuber and would record every little detail/ issue about the car.

    He also had ALOT of paperwork too. Which was nice. I have some connections at a Toyota dealership (it's why I got a 4runner) so it's getting a full once over!
