So, here's the "new" toy, I think we've had it almost a year or so. No huge plans for it, just a camping/exploring rig. It's a 98 4runner, 4x4, rear locker, 4.30 gears. I got it for $100 more than I sold the broncoII for, and it's much better on the highway. A/c and heat works, way quieter inside too.


This is after I got some bolt in donahoe coilovers up front, old man emu coils in the rear and bolt on rear king shocks. Rides decent, but a little rough on the street.





Made a rear bumper/swing out. Don't have the time or money just yet to go Longtravel but hoping to soon.

Looks good Brandon! I'm glad to see you post this, as I was losing hope in this site. Now faith is restored... lol
Unfortunately I think with instagram and Facebook, a lot of forums are going the way of the dodo. Hopefully not, because there is such a wealth of real information on these things that doesn't happen just with pictures.

How much to build me one of those rear bumpers, and will it fit/support a 35" tire? I'm starting to see these 3rd gens everywhere!

Honestly, not that cheap. Pretty easy to spend $1500 in time/material on one. That being said, if you're still interested let me know.

How did i miss your building a 3rd gen! what OME shocks did you put on the back? 351s or 352s? they have HD springs, which are pretty stiff but work well off road, esp loaded down. I am super excited to see what you do with this thang. Still one of my Favorite things to build.
