Hey guys,
this is my first post..
I picked up a 4runner last saturday.. my dad used to take me offroading about 10 years ago and I knew I had to get one eventually.  
here it is

Its not the turbo model, the previous owner put the gauges in there for the tach.. he also gave me the stock one if i ever want to put that back in

my uncle donated this when he found out I had bought it

Some Info On the truck

the radiator had a small leak on the top left corner so I decided it was a good time to start fresh and get a little bit thicker of one
