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.

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

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.
