I am in the process of buying a 90 4Runner from a good friend and am interested in doing some mild 4 wheeling. I like the way you have used a bunch of used parts and may like to contact you as I do some stuff to mine. We also have many similar interests. I got certified in SCUBA in 1972. I have been a roadracer for years and a regional champion in the Superbike class in 97, am very athletic etc. I live in Ojai (up near Ventura). My girlfriend and I do our serious off-roading on dirtbikes and spend much time in the backcountry of Death Valley and also Gorman, Ballinger Canyon etc. Shoot me an email with your phone number or give me a call at (805)646-0136 if you wouldn't mind letting me pick your brain about mods to the 4 Runner. Thanks. Happy Trails. John

G-Day from Australia I just stop by your site again I like it last time so this time I thought I would sign your guest book, please stop by our web site some it is all about the longest trucks you ever seen in the vas Outback of Australia, This is a photo of my HJ Land Cruiser it was used as the advance chase car for Richmond Heavy Towing to take me out to the truck wrecks Hundreds of miles away in the Outback of Australia. It is important to have some one get up to the wreck as soon as possible as there is no open road speed limit in the Outback, the trustee Land Cruiser would get you up there to start sorting out the wreck before the big wrecker arrived. As the supervisor when I reached the wreck I would take over control from the local police,from the time you get there till the time the wreck is pulled back on to its wheels and the load is put on to another truck and sent on its way you have to take charge of the wrecked truck and trailer plus the load what ever it is. The hole job from the time you leave the depot in the city to the time you get back from the Outback takes on a average two days,if you wont to read more check-out my web site Kingsley Foreman... all the best from the land Down-under Australia... ............................................................................................ .............................................................................................

I seem to have a lot in common w/ you. I am currently trying to sell my fullsize Blazer and am looking at a 91 Toyota 4Runner SR5 w/ about 180k miles on it. It looks perfect and drives perfect. It's green w/ gray interior and has a sunroof and a outside tire carrier on the rear. it is also a 5spd. I want to get one and fix it up as you have done yours. I would love your opinion of me getting this rig. Oh and also I play soccer, love to scuba dive, and have been to Melbourne, Australia
