So im pretty stoked to get back into the group... if anyone is wanting to go do rattlesnake Saturday morning or anything im totally down! or if you wanna go any other time. I am down anytime. I have many many plans for my runner so im definitely considering a build thread considering its all stock Smile

New to this forum obviously Newhere  but my name is Miles, I live in Sandy I've been dating my girlfriend for almost 2 years, my first love for yotas came from my 1993 sr5 that I bought for $500 back in summer of 2013 with a blown 3.slow, got her up and running from a trusty old Hanes manual that 1/2 the pages were too greasy to read. I got her back on the black in early spring 2014 and just recently acquired my  98 limited. (big plans)  

I love everything under the sun with an engine.
2004 Arctic Cat king cat 900 twin snowmobile
2004 Honda CRF 450 Dirt bike
2004 Yamaha YFZ 450 Sport Quad
1990 Kawasaki JS650 stand up jetski

I've been looking for a while for a group here in Utah of Toyota enthusiasts and I'm glad I found this and even happier to be a part of it!

I married into a family of toyotas (2 3rd gen 4 runner, 3 1st gen 4runners, 85 pickup, 80 series land cruiser, pic from yesterday in Moab)After 2 months of looking I just got myself into a 1996 4runner, found a steal and am looking at starting some mods (see build thread). Im happy to be here and have some guys here locally to answer any questions.

TRD270 was that yours that you sold to my brother in law? If so, the entire family is very very impressed about the quality of work you put in on it. I rode in it all weekend and it is an awesome rig. For sure my favorite out of the family, well besides my own.

Time to step up to the mic...

My name is Ben. I am the Fleet Manager for West Jordan City. I'm married, and have adult kids. I've been all over the place with employment but usually not too far from the automotive world... started out at Weber State in the GM ASEP program and working for a Buick/Jeep/Eagle dealership; did the Big-O Tire thing; worked in the hardware stores for a bit; Firefighter/EMT for Kaysville Fire for 10 years; worked the ramp for Delta Airlines; sold modular flooring; service manager for a firetruck dealership; outside sales and store manager for NAPA; and now at West Jordan.

I've been around the outdoors forever. In the old days, I had a '72 Chev 3/4T lifted wheeler. I've been in scouting for about 8 years. Most recently I've been climbing into dark, tight holes that are way far away from civilization with some caving people. So, love heights, love claustrophobic stuff, love outdoors, love camping and hiking. The works.

I've always wanted a Runner. I've got a buddy that has a couple jeeps and wants me to go with him, and also happens to run a tow truck, so I got the benefit of grabbing a cheap ride. 2nd gen 1992 SR5 that didn't run. Put some work into it and a new fuel pump and it was purring. Until the transmission went. It has 275K miles, and a knowledgeable tranny guy says they last a good 200k or so... so right this minute it's sitting with legal tags on the side of my garage, hoping for a tranny swap in the next few weeks. After that? I'm a bit conservative. But my buddy seems to think otherwise, so we'll see. Never know when a GM6.0 and trans might find their way into it... It's going to be a fun journey, and it's going to take awhile.

Sounds sweet, Ben! Get that bad boy running, then we can show you some trails and you can show us some caves. Very Happy

Well yeah it was my rig but I can't take credit for most of the work, I only changed a few things on the rig.

SnoSki here.  If you are a Snowbird skier you might have seen my Mits Montero with the SnoSki license plates parked where only 4x4's can park.  "The Beast" had lived a good life and it was time to upgrade as I pull a small camping trailer in the camping months.  What I needed was more power and that had me on the hunt for a v8, non truck (SUV) that could pull the RPod.  Quickly settled on the 4Runner as I have had several Toyota products in my life including a '74 FJ40.  The hunt was on!

Through AutoTrader.com I found a gently used 04 v8 with 56,000 miles on it being sold by a dealership in Manhattan, NY.  Not only was it low mileage but it had been exclusively maintained by the Toyota dealer in NYC every 4,000 to 5,000 miles including a new water pump and timing belt at 56k!  With that said I made arrangements to purchase and have it shipped to me in SLC.

Coming out of New York City it is stock.  The only mechanical issue I have noticed is the vehicle will not engage in L4.  After searching the forums the general consensus is "use or loose".  Seems the actuator gets gummy (?) and stuck.  H4 works but not L4.  If anyone knows of a "home remedy"  I look forward to hearing what that might be.

About Me: older than some, younger than a few......... 4 kids with 2 boys, one having a FJ and the other one having a tricked out Taco.  I look forward to meeting you and doing a few rides with you all.

Cheers!
Craig

Hi Craig, good to see you over here.

RPods are rad, I wish I could afford one.
