Well I picked this lovely up from Josh after a long search. Unfortunately I really did not drive her much and basically just fixed a few things here and there and watched her sit in my garage.
I recently purchased another house and ended up having to pay more than I thought I was going to have to so I could use the cash. I have the car cross posted, but anyone from the org gets first dibs if they are serious
I have only put maybe 500 miles on her in the last 5 months, I also recently changed all the fluids and both rear calipers.
For the full asking price I will include the carbon fiber hood, ECMlink v3, and thule rack. I am willing to work with the price if those things are removed but I will not part the car out so please do not ask.
Here is the run down from Josh's original thread...

Car has a few minor things that donít work but donít need to be repaired to be driven:
Cruise control is fully intact, turns on and lights up, indicates itís function but does not manipulate the throttle, havenít diagnosed it yet.
Horn doesnít work, itís still there, just doesnít, havenít looked into it
Power door locks do not work, when you push one down the rest are supposed to go, but they all have to be done individually
Sunroof does not seem to have power. Might be a fuse or relay, havenít looked into it.
All of the above issues existed when i bought the car and I was told the electrical issues were due to shorting out the alternator wire momentarily when the alternator was being changed years ago. I've gone as far as to check the fuses and replace a few to get some of the other stuff functioning but have not looking into the rest of the fuses, or more importantly, the relays that control these circuits.
Clear coat is fading on the driver side fender and OEM hood, exterior is clean, interior is clean, body is rust free for a northern car (light surface rust on suspension parts and underbody bits) no fender rot, no rear inner fender rot, no door rot. Itís a solid chassis, which is why I picked it up.
And here is the few things I did during my ownership
I am looking to get $6k for it, that will include everything. I realize that not everyone has 6k cash lying around for a toy so I would be interested in trading for something, or trade +cash.
Ideally I would like to trade for a clean, lifted 3rd gen 4x4 4runner. But I would consider other vehicles
Might consider trades for something else but no bikes, boats, rvs, atvs etc. Only for running/driving vehicles that have working a/c and aren't hacked, and nothing with a salvaged title. Let me know what you have and maybe we can work something out.
The VR4 could drive anywhere so I'd expect the same from your trade.
