Thanks Jordan. LOL, Old Grandpa Tune. I forgot exactly what was entailed with an OGT. I think I have a small vac leak, other than that it rolls out decently. I have no idea how much boost I'm running. Not enough to ping on premium...

Nooooooo.

I seriously need to resist mission creep with this car. It's a DD and that's what it needs to excel at.

Looks good!

I love the ride height. It must be nice to not always be worrying about your suspension/clearance. The S70 wheels are a classy touch, too!

Thanks. I like the ride height too, though I wish the TME springs were a little stiffer. And of course I've had to "shim" the right rear to level it out. Stupid 7/9 lean.

Took it for a drive through the city yesterday. Over the weekend I had a 70+ year old white woman, a ~20 year old black guy and a ~50 year old black guy give me compliments on it. LOL Here are a couple more from my drive yesterday.

It sparkles. It's those little things that take it from a clean used car to one that attracts compliments and really catches the eye. Very, very nice. The headlights look great.

Thanks, I appreciate the kind words. It was in good mechanical shape when I got it and just needed some work aesthetically. I'm happy with how it's shaping up, it drives and looks great now. This car is a rare find in the Midwest.

Update, because I can. The waggy is no longer my DD. Since selling the 740, the 945 has been slotted into the fun/project car role and is now comfortably sitting in my garage. It's a clean enough example of an ever dwindling population of 9 series turbowagons, that I didn't want to subject it to my 70 mile commute and winter weather.



So that left me scrambling for a new DD. After being dissapointed at the Accord/Civic/Camry/ES300/etc... offerings out there in my price range I settled on a 2002 SR5 2wd 4Runner. Not exactly what I was looking for when I started my search, but it's a one owner, was pretty darn clean and only had 91k miles on it. So far I enjoy it, it's like driving a lifted 240 wagon.

What is wrong with Old Grandpa Tune. I have it and like it, and don't go taking my radio off of AM where it belongs.

Looks like a nice car that won't take much to have really tidy!

Mine's still a bit dirty under the hood from that St. Joes trip, and that was ~2 years ago.

The rear axle will flex quite a bit - it takes a lot to get a wheel dangling:

Like Voltron with frame rust?

Hey, hey, hey. Let's not make it all about the broRunners, this is showroom. I do get why 240 guys like these, both vehicles sit like trucks.

3rd gens didn't get the frame recall like the Tacomas did.

Any frame rust should be surface and nothing structurally damaging. Supposedly we had better frame coatings.

I knew a guy with a 2WD Explorer once. We all used to tease him about his 'minivan.' ;)

As an admirer of the versatility of the minivan, I'm offended by the jab at your acquaintance's crappy Exploder.

Thanks. Eventually I want to basically OGT this. 16t, 2.5 or 3" exhaust, ipd cam, chips... and maybe down the road a manual swap.

A few people have managed to get rusty frames on 3rd gens, but they're generally from vry srs salt belt states, and the car was probably never washed after driving in winter. It's rare.

The Tacos were rusting out all over the place. US made frames from DANA vs. the 4Runner's Japanese made frames.

Sort of like all the old 60's Land Rover's, which had a similar fairly light gauge boxed steel frame that was no match for salty roads. There used to be saggy looking Land Rovers parked in backyards all over the midwest. I think some people made a cottage industry out of getting them for cheap and sticking new galvanized frames under them, then selling them on for $$$$$.
