Default 1988 Toyota 4Runner 4cyl $3000

I bought this truck back in January of 08 with the intention of making it a DD. That has not happened nor do I think it ever will. Too hard to get kiddos in and out of, not as comfy as the Expedition, yada yada...

When I bought it it had a spun bearing in the motor, I have since REPLACED the lower end with a rebuilt donor and it is running great.

The truck is REALLY solid for being an Indiana and MI truck. It was Ziebarted back in the day and I think that is what helped save it. The fender flares that are on it cover rust in the front and rear quarters.

This truck would make a great start to a trail truck project, and in the spirit of that I will throw in a complete 1984 Toyota Front axle that I have laying around if you think you would SAS it.

Vital Stats:
106k miles
88 Toyota 4Runner SR5
22RE 2.4L 4Cyl
4 Speed Automatic (A340h iirc)
Rebuilt motor with approx 2000 miles on rebuild
Stainless Header and brand new exhaust, Catalytic converter as well as a 40 series Flowmaster
New 02 Sensor
New Knock Sensor
Newer tires
New Battery
New Brakes (rotors, calipers, and pads)
Fully Detailed Interior (but it is not perfect)
Newer Sony Stereo

I have about $3800 and a TON of time into this truck.

I am not interested in any trades.

The Truck is Located in Grand Rapids near the Beltline and I-96.

Hang in there, it's a nice rig and worth every dollar your asking. I sold my bone stock in need of tires '85 4Runner in August for $3,500 and it wasn't as clean as yours.

How bad is the rust under the fender flares? How is the frame?

Two different animals. 1985 was solid axle. Toyota guys look for 85 and older.

The rust under the flares is through on all 4 corners, but salvageable. The front fenders can be replaced for cheap. The rust in the rear quarters does not cross the body lines and the inner lip of the wheel well is still well attached. My next step on this project was to lose the fender flares and fix the rust. I just won't have the time...

Apart from southern/western trucks, this frame is the most solid frame I have ever seen.

Let me get rid of the truck first and then I will decide on the axle.
