1985 Toyota 4Runner

The 1985 Toyota 4Runner was an excellent SUV in its day, and a fun one to rebuild today due to such features as a removable top and relatively easy to enhance engine.

The 1984 Toyota 4Runner remained primarily unchanged from the introductory model of 1984 1/2. A new fuel-injected 2.4-liter 22R-E engine was added as an option, as well as standard rear seats. 1985 was also the last year to find solid axle 4Runners.
