All the V8s in my area were garbage, plus the area is largely flat with little need for awd. A lot more V6s in my area, and the 2wd option was a nice thought to save a little on fuel. It really came down to finding only one decent 4runner in my area, and by area I mean within 4 hours of driving, and by decent I mean the body had minimal rust and everything worked with no accidents. That is after looking at 14 4runners over 3 weekends in my price range.

You mention the "body had minimal rust", for the most part the bodies on T4Rs usually have little rust with the exception of the rear hatch because of the sound deadening material that was stuck on over unprimed metal.

The question I have is did you look at the frame, which does have a issue with severe rust especially in the "rust belt" states?

I live in the rust belt and let me tell you, I have seen the famous frame rot. It was pretty much only on the years before the face lift. Mine is in great shape for the area. Only seen two in this great of shape. The rest were fairly rusted, and the early years were definitely rotting. One was arguably unsafe for the road imo. They all wanted top dollar for them too. Gross.

Just wanted to be sure you looked at the frame, glad you found a deceit one and to also help you get your post count up!
