Most of you guys know, or know of, my 4.3Runner, as it's been a project I've been working on for quite awhile. So I'm just going to do a mod-list, and a bunch of pictures to start this thread off....
Started as an '87 4Runner SR5 Turbo (which were only available with an auto). It had been run out of oil before I got it, so engine swaps happened. First a non-turbo 22RE which had been cared for even worse than the 22RTE, which lasted 1k miles before popping a head gasket.

2" leaf spring blocks on stock springs (probably sagged at least an inch)

I have a '95 Land Cruiser rear axle to go in it (disc brakes, full-float hubs, electric locker), but I need to switch to 16" wheels (I have...just need tires) in order to run. I also have 3" lift Skyjacker leaf springs that will go in at the same time.
