Since the Mustang is still at the body shop after being rear-ended back in December, I had to get another vehicle. A guy on the local AR15 board mentioned he had a truck for sale, so I took a look at it and jumped on it. It's a 1986 Toyota 4Runner SR5, 22RE (bulletproof 2.4L four-cylinder), 4x4, 5spd. Has 234K miles, which for this motor is apparently not unusual, and the body and frame have very little rust for a Toyota truck of this vintage. Paid $1100. Four-wheel-drive works, which will be nice next time it snows big again. It will need a clutch and probably a timing chain a bit sooner than later, but neither are immediate. Brakes could use a little looking at, too (intermittent squeak). Interior is pretty clean except the carpet, and the heat is HOT. As you can see in the pictures, it's got the standard-issue Toyota saggy ass, but an add-a-leaf or lift shackles should fix that for a while. Needs big tires and maybe new wheels too. Aside from that, maybe exhaust, and maintenance/repairs, I should be able to leave it pretty much alone and have a good daily driver/beater. Hopefully the Mustang can be reduced to a nice-weather car for the first time in it's life. Brian Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
