2nd bumper down on this page

and the engine in the pics is a 3.4L. Posting soon in the wanted ads the final pieces needed to install it.

Tips and trick on the wiring would be helpful. Have the 3.4L harness

I always wished mine was a 2 door. Pickup up a cheap set of 4 pocket styled Truck flares for it as they should fit the rear wheel opening due to no back door, but the fuel door will have to be removed or moved.


i think I will be selling off a pair of slackers front baja flared fenders at some point too.

Dont cover the rust with flares, just spend the time fix the rust properly it doesn't look like a big job.

It will get done properly. Not big on flares like the clean simply look. Would only get them to stay legal

I didn't mean to hide the rust with flares. Being a fan of them or not you will need them because you will not fit big rubber under a 4runner and still have clearance for steering or stability without going wider and you will not be able to stay legal and still look good without them.

Trust me, i have 10" of rubber outside my flares on my 4runner but even with stock width axles i needed more than flares for a tire that was 12.5.

Unless you go with a goofy offset wheel to keep you narrow, but then you will have a tall and narrow gay looking truck.

No matter what you decide to do about the rust and possibility of flares, I think you have a great starting piece for a build. 2 door 4runners are sweet. Make sure to keep us posed with pictures as it progresses.
