Default Will's 05 4Runner Build

I’ve been wanting to post a thread of my build so far and seeing how today is the fifth anniversary of owning the 4Runner what better time than now to do so.

December 9th 2004 purchased my 2005 4Runner


A few weeks later, test run at Hollister Hills


Almost slid my new truck off the Mtn, IH8MUD!!!

Stock flexing...

Because the exhaust was so bent up from rocks I replace it with a Magnaflow Cat-back System



Installed HID Headlights

Thanks, I try to keep the old truck looking good and undamaged.

I know a few guys who have Demello Sliders on their trucks and haven't heard any complaints yet, plus I talked to the guys at Demellos and took a tour of their shop when I was on vacation and I was pretty impressed with them. So I'll test the sliders out for sure, and we'll find out how good the design is!!!
