Curious, anyone recognize this 2003 4Runner? I’m seriously thinking of buying it, to sort of replace my Tacoma, as its going through a frame swap. My taco is loosing the lift and going back to stock ride height … temporarily. The taco will be out of service for a while. The taco will be lifted again with 63″ Chevy rear springs and a Dana 44 front end, yup an SAS! Until the work is done (hopefully this century) I’m looking for a replacement.
Enter the 2003 4Runner… It sports a 3″ Rough country lift (didn’t look for a lifted truck, but this one is so bonus) 2 new sets of tires on wheels, A/T’s and street tires. It has a bit of rust on the passenger side rocker (Shitty Poo! but what do you do? ) that can be fixed, I think?!. Has a non functioning horn (probably the Spiral cable / Clock spring) and front hood struts are weak. Aside from that the General / Safety inspection came back clear. 222000km on the v8.
Anyone recognize this rig? Kitchener area

The poo. Rusty Rocker. Thoughts anyone?March 25, 2018 at 10:18 am #206374Slick_YotaKeymaster
Nice looking runner Ryan. I don’t recognize it.
I can’t help much with rust opinions, but the spiral wire may have a TSB – I know mine was replaced. Being that both are not working, check the fuse first. Could get lucky.March 25, 2018 at 12:16 pm #206377
Ah! Never thought about a TSB. Wonder if that info shows up in a CarProof report? Gotta check it out. I should check with Toyota Service counter.March 25, 2018 at 12:20 pm #206378
Steve. I asked the owner if the panic button on his remote sounds the horn, apparently it does. I’m assuming if the horn sounds that would indicate the horn, fuse and solenoid work, unless there is a second horn and circuit. I need to dig around the interwebnet.March 25, 2018 at 12:25 pm #206379
I was holding out for a land Cruiser, but Heffener Toyota has my frame and they are eager to do the frame swap. Time is not on my side. The Runner is a nice ride, my Taco feels like a true truck compared to the ride the Runner gives. Totally different feel.March 25, 2018 at 12:30 pm #206380
Man that spiral cable is expensive!!! $412 for the OEM part $499 installed. Ouch! I found aftermarket spiral cables for $34 usd. with apparent good reviews.March 26, 2018 at 1:43 am #206392Slick_YotaKeymaster
jesus, that’s robbery! hopefully the aftermarket is legit!
There’s only the 2 horns (high and low) that serve all purposes.
