2013 SR5 vs 2016 SR5 Premium

I currently have a 97 Gen 3 and love it.
Was looking to buy a 5th Gen: 2013 SR5 with 119K miles vs a 2016 SR5 premium with 143k miles for about the same price. Would you go for the later model year with less miles or the newer model with more miles?
Opinions please. Thanks with this being my 1st T4R Gen 5. Thanks!

I think it would come down to which you prefer the look of - to me the interior and exterior of the refreshed (14+) models make it appear much more modern - not that the 4runner is modern lol

Assume they are both are maintained same and are in the same cosmetic and mechanical shape

Thanks guys, both are in good condition with only superficial rust. Grams and under carriage on both look good. Maintenance records look good in both. I will probably go for the 2016. I would have to mod the 2013 to get more clearance and change the front end and side trim and low running boards on the 2013. The 2016 is good to go out of the gate. I was just concerned on the extra 20K miles in 3 less years, meaning it was driven a lot harder.

Actually that kind of annual mileage would likely indicate predominantly highway miles which are less wear and tear.

Thanks guys! Went with the 2016. Miles were high as the owner used for business driving between NC and VA most highway. All maintenance records provided with synthetic oil changes every 5k miles.
Thanks for the help! Love it. Cheers. I would recommend this decision again.
