Hi

Hi everyone. Iím new to the 4Runner game. Iíve had my 2003 for a few months now. Just starting to fix it up and take it out. So far Iíve just put some 5th gen TRD pro suspension and wheels, rock sliders and skids. Only taken it to local SVRA and OHV places but plan and doing more someday.

I plan to build a platform for sleeping. I will use the vehicle for camping at kitesurfing venues, mountain biking spots and the ski slopes. It will need to be reliable! I can only find 3rd gens > 220k miles in my area. How long do these things really last reliably?

Apologies for multiple posts, this post count is too high in my opinion to create my desired WTB thread.

Forgot to mention the 4runner can be anywhere in the US. I am willing to road trip to get it. The runner cannot have structural rust issues.

HI,

I'm a a new member but not new to 4Runners or Toyota's. We've had an 02 4runner that we've owned and driven for 15 years. I also have an 08 Tacoma that I've owned since new for the last 12!

Its time to upgrade the 02 4Runner. We are looking at the 5th gens and want to buy used. Any advice on things to be aware of? Right now things i'm aware of that i'm taking into consideration are the

-13->14 redesign of front bumper, headlights/taillights/gauges
-potential paint issues with white and blizzard pearl

Is there any type of buyers guide with general advice? I searched and saw some hits in the 3rd and 4th gen forums but not in the 5th.

Hi Everyone! Been lurking for awhile but not really posting. We got my wife a brand new 2015 4Runner 2WD LE back in 2016. We've enjoyed it but the ride has been rough. I consulted a buddy and his thoughts are it's the 20's and that I should swap out for some 17's. With just us it was fine when we hit a small crack in the road and it sent us to the moon with the awful ride. Now we have twin girls and it's waking them up constantly. I live in Memphis so mainly just hitting paved roads but like the aggressive look.

So I am rambling and going to get to the point. My wife is contemplating getting something bigger(Tahoe or Lexus SUV) and I see this as an opportunity to take the 4Runner as my own. I've been looking at trading in or selling on my own to get the TRD Pro or at least the LE 4WD. Really regret getting the 2WD but we will only be using 4WD very rarely to put our boat in the lake. What say you am I an idiot and just keep the 2WD and change wheels and tires? I just feel why put money into a 2WD?

Cool

Hey everyone!

I just purchased my first 4Runner after eyeing them for a bit!

It is a 2020 SR5 Premium (Magnetic Grey) 5th Generation from what I seen in here! lol

Look forward to fixing it up and gaining knowledge from you fellow owners.

I'll post pictures and re introduce once my 15 min post requirement is up.

Thanks again!

98 4runner

Hey new user here and just got my first 4runner. 1998 v6 4x4 . 245k miles. The previous owner lifted it, tires/rims, camburg /king suspension, light bar, alarm system, stereo,cold air intake, exhaust, re-geared it, and put some type of 4 wheel drive locker system on it. Super excited about it, always wanted one. When I shift from park to either reverse or drive it jerk/shifts very hard even with e brake on. The shocks are very creaky/squeaky and are obnoxiously loud, Iím gonna grease them up but is there a way to tell if theyíre shot?? Other than that it seems to run good. Thanks!
