That 99 sounds intriguing, any more info on it? Cant go wrong with a nice 02 sport either. The 01 is more than I would pay though.

The 99 just sold, unfortunately. I spoke to the dealer that has the 01 and they lowered the price so I'm going to figure out how to get out there and take a look. It's apparently a one-owner vehicle, and very low miles so fingers crossed.

So I went ahead and picked up the 2001 limited today with 88k miles. Thanks to this forum and this thread I got up to speed very quickly on the 3rd gen and was able to get comfortable with the purchase. Thanks and I look forward to future posting!

Can this please get stickied? I've looked at it almost everyday for reference since I first found it.

Mods,

Please STICKY this thread so guys don't have to keep digging it up every other day to post the link in the constant chain of "I'm buying a 4Runner, what do I look for?" threads.

Please?

Can we get a sticky up in heeeeeeeere!?!

Actually, how about unsticking the "Welcome to the new 3rd gen T4Rs sub-forum" and replacing it with this thread? The 3rd gen sub forum is neither new, nor does it serve any purpose now (at least that I can see). The last page of that thread is a guy typing in Spanish and a few people asking tech questions that no one will likely ever see in time to help.

I have wondered what that thread was for since I got here. Still have no clue.

BTW brian, why don't you take those two pics of the 4wd shifters I have in this thread and attach them to yours. I think they are better suited for your thread anyway. Just be sure to actually attach them and not just link with IMG tags.

Well they unstickied that one but didn't replace it.

Anywho, I have a little bump with a story.

I was at the dealer the other day, walking around the lot waiting for the parts guys to finish with the line of people they had. I was looking at this one black SR5. It had the '99-'00 grill and the '96-'00 SR5 3-spoke wheels, so I knew it was either a 1999 or a 2000, then I noticed the color-keyed limited style flares. I though "Ok, those were only an option for '00-'02 SR5's." So I knew for sure it was a 2000. I looked at the sticker on the window, it said 2001..

Just then a salesman walked up and asked me what I thought about it. I said, "I would really like to see some more information on it, can I see a carfax please?" (I don't normally like to waste people's time like this, but I was really puzzled and he asked me in the first place.)

A few minutes later the dude walked back out and handed it to me. Sure enough, the paper said 2000. I said, "I knew it. This is a 2000, you have it marked as a 2001.."

He mumbled something and walked back inside quickly.
I was bored and figured the parts line was most likely gone so I walked away too and back to parts.

Long story short, this could have easily gone right past any other potential buyer. I could have used their slip-up as leverage for price haggling. Therefore, can we please get a STICKY??

Just an enormous amount of info all in one place, 4-Ripcord.

Thanks very much for all the hard work.

ABOUT ME: I'm new here; I'm looking for a 4R -- probably '96; probably a very early 3rd Gen (I guess); hope to find one for $3-5k. Is that doable, or am I asking for trouble?...

Thanks folks.

Awesome thanks! Looks like that may be as close as this one gets.

Glad you like it.


Where there is a will, there is a way. Someone out there has their 4runner priced to move, you just gotta find it.

Use these websites, I use them everyday as I too am on the hunt.
Autotempest-Search Craigslist, eBay, Autotrader, Cars.com, and many more with just one search form.

Statewide list-Search Craigslist by state instead of by city.
