About Toyota 4Runner

The Toyota 4Runner is one of the Japanese company’s first domestic SUVs. It was based off of the Toyota Pickup, and in the early going, the 4Runner was basically constructed as a light pickup with a removable fiberglass cover affixed to the bed. The first generation of the model rolled off the line in 1984. It was equipped with a 2.4L inline four-cylinder engine mated to a standard four-speed automatic transmission (a five-speed manual was also available). The engine would be upgraded several times throughout the first generation of the 4Runner and the vehicle would overall see other updates such as the inclusion of an independent suspension. The second generation 4Runner premiered for the 1990 model year in two trim levels: S45 and S45 V6. The base SR5 was powered by a 2.4L four-cylinder engine capable of 116 horsepower while the SR5 V6 received a 3.0L V6 that produced up to 150 horsepower. The Toyota 4Runner was available in both two and four-door body styles, with the four-door version being the one chosen most often.

1996 welcomed in the third generation of the Toyota 4Runner. Trim levels were the base, SR5, and Limited. The body of the vehicle was larger and the wheelbase was extended. These changes increased the amount of passenger and cargo space. Twin airbags and antilock brakes were also added to the model, as was rack and pinion steering and restyled headlights. The base engine was a 2.7L inline four-cylinder while a beefier 3.4L V6 engine that threw out up to 183 horsepower could also be had. Towards the end of the decade, such 4Runner parts as a new front-end grille and bumper along with new tail lights and wheels were the major exterior changes. The 4Runner consistently drew praise for its off-road capability and thanks to the emerging popularity of SUVs during this time, the vehicle was enjoying a good deal of success. Fourth-generation 4Runners were introduced in 2003. The base engine was updated to a 4.0L V6 mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. However, a bolder V8 was available as well, and delivered 235 horsepower and 320 pounds-per-foot of torque. This engine was directed through a five-speed automatic. In 2005, the V8 was given a boost up to 270 hp and 330 pounds-per-foot of torque. Trim levels were still the SR5, Sport, and Limited, with the higher trim levels receiving amenities such as automatic climate control, cruise control, power accessories, leather upholstery, and more. A navigation system with a back-up camera became optional in 2005 while all versions of the model received Downhill Assist Control and Hill-Start Assist Control.

The fifth generation of the 4Runner debuted for 2010. Trim levels include the SR5, Trail, and Limited. Two-wheel drive SR5 4Runners are equipped with a 2.7L inline four-cylinder engine good for 157 hp. All other variants are outfitted with a 4.0L V6 that offers up to 270 horsepower mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. The SR5 and the Limited are both available in rear or four-wheel drive, while the Trail is equipped with part-time four-wheel drive only. As for the trims themselves, the SR5 is decked out with air conditioning, cruise control, power accessories, a power rear window, and foglights. The Trail shows of a locking rear differential, off-road tires, a backup camera, water-resistant upholstery, and Bluetooth capability. The luxuriously-themed Limited is equipped with keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, a premium stereo, and X-REAS adaptive suspension.

A spoiler is intended to control the way the air streaming over the car is affecting the rear of the vehicle. Spoilers cause drag, and actually slow the car down or make it unstable, if not properly designed. A correctly designed spoiler can counteract the lifting forces that most cars experience when speeds get high, and keep the car on the road.
Installing a dash kit is not that difficult. It is in fact quite easy if you just observe a couple of key points. Most important of all is cleaning the surfaces destined for beautification.

2003 Toyota 4Runner
| Posted by | (Escondido, CA)

The leveling struts are great, I set it on the 1.75" (third ring up) and my 4runner is dead level. Looks great and rides super smooth. My 4runner had the Xreas linked suspension system, and was worried about losing the features of that with these socks/struts, but needn't have. This set up is way better, I highly recommend switching to Bilsteins all around. Firm but plush on the road but spake up the big bumps with ease. My first attempt at installing struts, and I must say if it's your first time, these are a challenge to put on. First one took me three hours to figure out, second was much easier. Great price for a great ride.
