    Default 97 4 Runner Manual rear diff lock 4 sale - needs work



    This car has a piece of my heart. I have had this amazing vehicle for nearly 12 years. It has been on many adventures with me and I love it. I found a newer runner with less miles and unfortunately, the 97 has come to a point where it needs a fair amount of work and I need to let it go and move on. I'm not sure what all is wrong with it but something to do with suspension etc. You will need/want to have it checked out or better yet be a mechanic yourself.



    I know it is a rare breed and there are many things about this truck that are awesome such as:
    - It is a manual
    - 3.4 L V6
    - Power windows, locks, and sunroof
    - A/c and heat work well
    - Rear window still rolls up and down without fail
    - It has a Rear Diff Locker = doesn't know the meaning of the word 'stuck'
    - It has cloth seats (I personally hate leather so this is a plus for me)
    - It has a new battery
    - The tires are nice
    - It has a 3in Suspension lift
    - It has a grill guard (rusty but still does the job of looking cool)
    - It has a tow hitch
    - Brakes are good
    - It is Blue/Green
    - Has original tape deck and cd player
    - Is the best model 4Runner ever created.
    - Her Name is Ruth

    Things that aren't so great about it that I know of:
    - There is a part of the steering wheel that is worn where my hand goes.
    - Interior is worn
    - Windshield is super cracked
    - Something is wrong with the suspension (not sure what but it makes funny noises)
    - Had a bout of overheating this summer but doesn't seem to leak antifreeze. I added more and the problem was seeming solved. Mechanic couldn't find an issue.
    - It has some rust
    - Clear top layer on the hood has peeled
    - Paint is faded and clear coat is peeling on the roof
    - 269 Thousand Miles
    - Antenna is broken but radio still works so I didn't replace it.

    Make me an offer.

    Paul previously posted:
    "Price?"

    I had it listed at $3500 and was told that was too low but I know it needs some work so I think that is reasonable.
