I should have thought about this before I bought the darn car.

I cant wait to start nodding my new to me 5th 4Runner but I cant even figure out what is wrong with the lift gate, the latch/window/wiper has no power and I receive an error code letting me know that the rear ecu is not communicating with the main body ecu. But as soon as I figure that out I will be able to happily mod!

Gas mileage will always suck. So, just drive and enjoy it.

if you're gonna buy a 4runner take comfort in knowing there are so many mods that can be done AND so much internet resources available for researching/help. you will spend hours researching and reading because you will be intrigued

make sure you know the differences in trim levels. there are lots of "how do I know if I have this" questions. the following link might be helpful. seems to have 20 years worth of 4runner brochures Auto-Brochures.com|Toyota Car PDF Sales Brochure/Catalog/Flyer/Info 4Runner 86 Avalon Camry Celica, CH-R, Corolla Corona Echo FJ Cruiser Highlander Land Cruiser Mark II
Matrix Mirai MR2 Prius RAV4 Sequoia Sienna Solara Supra Tacoma Tundra Venza Yaris


never rush a purchase before you're comfortable but just know these vehicles can go FAST depending on where you live. I purchased mine 2 days after it was posted online from a dealer. I was actually the second person to purchase the vehicle, the first person couldn't get financing so I scooped it. test drive before you're ready to buy and then when you're ready be prepared to act fast when the right rig comes up. less of an issue if you buy new

price negotiations will be hard (or I just suck at them). dealers and savvy sellers know there's high demand. Instead of negotiating on price try and negotiate add ons (floor mats, cargo covers, touch up paint supplies, cargo equipment, roof racks, etc.). see what you can get thrown in. my dealer wouldn't budge on price but I got a bunch of accessories for a very low price with only a little off the sticker price

this is just a rule I follow because I'm no mechanic: always have full service history for the vehicle. 4runners are tanks, they last. but don't overlook the importance of a complete service history, especially if mileage is higher. I've called toyota dealers with a VIN and asked them to walk me through the complete service history and send it to me via email. they've never had an issue doing so

4runners have a secret. A black hole that consumes 10mm sockets

At some point you will come to the realization that the ONLY vehicle upgrade that will truly satisfy you is a Land Cruiser LC200...

its the only logical next vehicle-step. EVERYTHING else pales in comparison

I own (now) older vehicles.
1968 F100, 78 & 80 Yamaha XS1100's, 88 Honda trx300.
I bought the 4runner because I'm tired of tinkering.
So I installed rock sliders. It came with a spacer lift. That needs to be replaced with a proper suspension. Ditch lights would be handy where I live (as actual ditch lights). PITA spare underneath, needs a hitch mounted carrier or rear bumper. Maybe make my own hitch carrier. Then it would need a matching front bumper. A rear locker would make life easier. Might as well do a front locker too.
Still fiddling with carbs and points on the older vehicles. Bolting stuff on the 4runner could be done by a monkey. But I'll do the best I can, lol.

Red face

Is it weird that I spent hours looking at mods before I even got it? Rhetorical question...

Haha this is so true. I've had an old Honda CR-V that I've been tinkering with for the past year on my street in Brooklyn, and now that I'm on the hunt for a 4th gen TFR it feels like the mods are endless (until I max out my CC lol), and resources for DIY stuff are even greater than CR-Vs. Can't wait to find mine!
