2006 Toyota 4Runner - iniazy
About my 4Runner
My ride is a Toyota Fortuner. You could think of it as the Asian/Middle East version of the Toyota 4Runner. It's got seven seats, the same 1GR-FE V6 engine, the same 5 speed A750F gearbox, the FJ Cruiser's permanent 4WD transfer case, and the same diffs. As such, it's got permanent four wheel drive with a lockable Torsen(R) center differential. The chassis is a shortened Toyota HiLux chassis, and shares sheet metal with the HiLux on the front fenders and hood. I've given it a 2.5 inch lift by installing the Australian Old Man Emu suspension kit, and larger 265/75/R16 tires. The rig comes with a rear locker from the factory, and a standard 220 mm (8.7 Inches) ground clearance. So I've propped it up to 11.2 Inches of clearance. Mods also include a front bull bar, a Warn winch, a front locker from ARB, two on-board air compressors (one of them from ARB also used for the locker), and an auxiliary battery. The car has become quite a distinguished off-road beast, and becoming quite popular in the region as one of the few vehicles around with triple diff-locks. It's my only ride, I use it to go everywhere, including regular trips to grocery stores, so I'm keen on keeping it road-friendly as well.
