Produced between 1984 and 1989, the First Generation Toyota 4Runner is a classic 4x4 that is respected by many as one of the best off-road vehicles ever made.
We were searching for a capable, reliable, and classic vehicle that could take us down the Baja Peninsula with no problems.
We found a mechanically-sound '86 4Runner DLX while we were still traveling around in our bus. The build has begun and we are looking forward to the challenge of finishing this truck by Christmas, when we leave for Baja!
Current Status: Mostly Complete Adventure Mobile
We repaired the '86 quickly in preparation for our Winter plans. We are currently enjoying the truck as a primary means to explore Baja, Mexico.
Now that we have had a chance to live out of the truck for a few months, changes will inevitably come. The roof-top tent lifestyle is more focused on weekend warriors and so the research now begins on how to tow the 4Runner behind the skoolie.
