4runner wrecked

I must inform you that my beloved toyota is dead, I wrecked it on a dark foggy night. It saved my life for sure-I crashed it at about 80 km/h in a steel bridge guard railing,flew over a stream and landed on driver's side-toyota is dead but I survived without a scratch or a bruise-I still can't believe it.
I recently had paintwork and bodywork done
http://www.yotatech.com/f116/bodywor...k-done-130482/
installed lpg system,OME lift kit, brand new maxxis trepador m/t tires...

These 1'st gens are extremely rare in these parts of the world, so I can't get the same car and use the remaining parts,maybe I'll import one from the states or something like that,anyway, I'm still checking my options, but one thing is sure - my next car will definitely be Toyota 4 runner or pickup again.
I'll take some pics of the wreck and post it after the holidays.

Merry Christmas and happy new year from Croatia!

Thanks guys!
I have a trace of hope-I managed to find 1993 hilux in parts with 22re engine so I think that most of the parts fit my yota. I'll check it out next week.
So it looks like I'll be making 1989-1993 4runner - pickup hybrid vehicle
I wonder if the chassis and mounts are the same-what do you guys think about that idea? Opinions-suggestions are more than welcome?

Thanks!

The bottom line is you're still alive to get another Runner. Good luck with the find.

Just a little update!
I managed to exchange a wrecked 4runner for completely restored Chevy S-10 blazer pickup, and then exchanged pickup for 1985 Landcuiser hj 60 with 4.0 diesel so yota is back in the house-it is not a 4runner but still

Yep
(not my front end)
Click the image to open in full size.

And yes its possible to put them on a 2nd, Total Chaos fab has it with their long travel kits IIRC..But thats to much headace to deal with the geometry if your using stock arms..

Thus why I bought a Taco.
