So many good lines, but my favorite is at the end when he's discussing the price, and how it compares to KBB.

-"But Adam, The Kelly Blue Book price is...." - Who the hell is Kelly?- Tell her to shut up and get you a beer.

yeah,yeah, but that pesky oil leak keeps coming up... and all those cv's hubs and tires. I'm thinkin' raggedy, rattlin', used-up POS.

But that writing!!! Kudos to his weed dealer!

Aw man! Someone flagged it. For being too funny? Crap, I should have copy/pasted all the text. That had me rolling over in laughter.

I thought about that too. I wish I had done that but I was too busy yesterday. Anyway, if there is still a 'best of CL' it should be there. I'm sure it got flagged for language and not being exactly politically correct.

Re: 1990 Toyota 4Runner 4x4 & More! ***New link in OP***

Hello Future Buyer & Badass,

Are you tired of your 9-5?
Do you feel like your life is a shitty mix of the movie "Office Space" and "Memento"?

How about that boring weekend routine of yours- Are you really that excited to go sit on your couch, or clean your cookie cutter house?

Or maybe you just feel that fire burning to get away from all those. . .
"Prius driving"-People
"Is that Free-range & organic?"-People
"don't vaccinate your kids"-People
"Lets put some Safety Foam on that " -People

This 4runner is a solution to that, and all of your other life needs.

-This beast was awarded Toyota 4Runner of the Month on T4R.com- So you'll start with Street Cred.
-"But Adam, what makes this so special?" Well sit your badass down on a couch & keep reading (don't mind the beautiful woman with the cigar & 15 year fine oak whisky- you'll get used to this kind of treatment.)

To begin, the 4Runner is a fantastic platform to start on -- arguably impossible to improve upon- Until now. . .
-Long travel suspension kit with 13" of Travel in the front, 15" of travel in the rear, with full time 4wd.
-This means going 45mph over 2ft bumps and jumping up to three car lengths has never been easier.
-Do you know what types of women like to be in a jumping truck? All women.

The roof rack is custom designed to accommodate a Roof Top Tent & awning, allowing you and your friends to have a mobile base camp on every weekend expedition.
When the rear seats fold flat, the custom placed foam padding creates the perfect protection for cargo, or that dumb drunk friend who forgot to bring their tent camping.
Speaking of hauling things, this truck is used to hauling things, mostly ass.
The torque filled 3VZE V6 combined with 4.88 re-gearing has taken me to the best remote evil lairs in the world, as seen in my Volcano Expedition picture.
Chuck Norris were based off this truck
Every single door hinge can be used as a bottle opener --- yes I am serious.
But honestly the truck is not perfect,

- People always look at you, ask about it, and bother you with pictures.
- The Wiring from the previous owner could be redone, but that's just if you're picky
- Also, This truck jumped the North Korean border to deliver Freedom and copies of The Interview right under Kim Jong Un's nose!
-Unfortunately in this glorious and brace expedition, the valve cover gaskets were slightly damaged and leak some oil - but that's a small price to pay for liberty!
- "But its Japanese & I love MURICA" -- Don't you worry, this puppy was made on good old US Soil. Not to mention There's recent study that Toyota's are more American than Ford's and Chevy's (and you don't have to bail them out!)

Why Am I selling this beast?

-One person can only handle so much awesome- I only use it on weekends and the trips I take are too calm and reserved for this machine.
-I want someone who's not afraid of a little bit of oil to jump this beast over the border, drive it across the jungle, through the mountains, into the desert, make the SF Mothers group shudder as your drive it downtown, to truly use it to its full expedition potential.
