I’ve designed a panhard lift bracket for the 3rd generation 4runner.
While looking for a factory 4.10 e-locker for the 4Runner, I inadvertently ended up joining the Carolina 4Runner Off Road Group on Facebook. In less than a week, these guys have either helped me source, or sold to me the locker, a donor axle assembly with links, replacement front seats (96/97 cloth), replacement steering wheel (also correct for 96/97), rear cargo cover, and factory cargo net.
In addition, I’ve picked up replacement carpet, cargo area side panels (from an ’01 for the larger storage bin), cup-holder console (from the ’01), and conversion parts to make the passenger window auto/express. I believe I’ll add the 2001 rear seat backs and bases (I’ll reupholster with the 96 cloth), replacement power antenna, and replacement exhaust to the list of used/salvage items that the truck is getting over the next few weeks.
Having access to a local network of enthusiastic, like-minded folks is invaluable, in case you didn’t know.
993, M3, R75/5, and Z600 have shuffled off my mortal coil.
putting my shoulder into 207 and the m715; will escort them out like a good host, as well
