Seller Note

I’m selling my 1997 4runner, 4x4 and is e-locked. Clean title, with a JDM engine that I put in 4 years ago that currently has about 120-130k miles. Car has a ton of mods and is ready to go. I built this 4runner knowing that I would never sell it. I trust this car to take me anywhere and bring me back with no issues whatsoever. If I had to drive it across the country right now, I would not have a problem doing so. 

Reason for selling is it because a got a newer car and don’t have the space to keep this one.

All the maintenance, specs and info are listed below. I’m sure I forgot to list a couple of mods too.

I used to run Stant 170° thermostat but the car ran too cool with it (160° in the snow and 165° in the winter) currently running an OEM thermostat and the hottest I’ve ever seen it get is 197° going up a steep grade for a constant 5-10 mins while it was 115° outside. In other words this thing is almost guaranteed to never overheat
