    Hey y'all, im new to the 4runner, i have always loved the look of them and have always wanted one, now, for the 500$ price tag, im picking up a 89' . It needs a new ignition, driver door mirror, and a windshield wiper motor, and some tlc. Is there anything i need to look out for?? I've been building 1st gen explorers for a little while so im no stranger to getting dirty, or walking home lmao

    Im not sure yet, i was told it has a 22r tho, i have my explorer as my d.d. so 500$ is a steal from what I've been told, its through my cousin. His x broke the key off in the ignition he doesn't wanna deal with it because he is not mechanically inclined lol
