Notes on Charlie: a 2004 Toyota 4Runner

Charcoal Charlie was my 2004 Toyota 4runner. My wife gets all the credit for this car. She found it while we were looking for an SUV for our kids and it is the best thing that she has done for our family (don’t tell her that).

I have used experiences and information from the many members over at to put together my plans for building up Charlie. I have listed a link to the build plan that I have put together below. Feel free to check it out and copy it if you want to.

I am most excited to get a roof rack and the hidden front bumper that will house the winch that I am planning on getting.

I’ve since sold this car and purchased a 2014 Lexus GX460. It’s also black, so we’ve named him Bruno.
