1987 Toyota 4Runner SR5 -- STOLEN -- Des Moines, WA
Hello everyone, unfortunately I have come here to post for the wrong reasons. Somebody has stolen my 4Runner which I absolutely loved.
Details: Stolen out of Des Moines, Wa on 1/5/15 between the hours of 6:30am and 9:00am. Taken from a small, gated condo community. It had a full tank of fuel in it, so it could be anywhere by now. Ive posted this a lot of other places, but am posting here now.
Info: 1987 Toyota 4Runner SR5, red with a textured black canopy(rattle can bed liner). The black metal framing around the windows of the canopy are faded, and have a couple spots where the paint is worn off, and rust has began to show. The rear bumper is chrome, flimsy, bent, and does NOT have a hitch. The front fascia under the bumper has been removed, so the skid plate and IFS are highly visible from the front of the vehicle. The tires are 31x10.50R15 on GM Rally Wheels. (Very distinguishable, however they could have removed the beauty rings around the wheels, and they would just appear to be black deep dish steel wheels. The front, passenger side beauty ring was already missing when stolen.)
The windshield was not cracked, or chipped, other than a very small rock chip I just got on the driver side eye height(Probably not visible from outside). The trim around the front windshield is chrome/faded peeling black paint.
I pain stakingly removed all of the side decals, and most of the hood, however there is still half the decals on the driver side of the hood. I will try to find a picture.
Front bumper was recently painted black, and had new plastic end pieces, front grill was recently painted black, and I removed the Toyota badge from the front grill.
This truck was my daily driver, and I loved it. I have put a lot of work and money into it, and was constantly planning the next project for it. If you guys could just keep your eyes peeled for me it would mean a lot.
NOTE: The bottom pictures, with the Suzuki in the snow with the fire going are the most recent pictures, from one month ago. In these pictures you can notice, kind of, the front grill is black(although dirty), front Toyota badge is removed, license plate is bolted into painted black bumper(rather than zip tied), and the passenger side front beauty ring is missing.
Edit: Also, the Passenger side mirror is electric, and missing the little cover on the bottom which blocks the wires. So, you can see the two wires on the passenger side. The driver side is a manual mirror, both are faded and old looking.
