No Runner yet...hopefully within 24hrs

Hello! Soon to be first-time "4Runner" owner here but not so much Yotas. I currently live in Tokyo but will be moving back to the states in August. My last vehicle before coming over here was a '14 Tacoma TRD Sport, while I liked the truck I hated the fact I couldn't fit my kids carseat in the backseat without being ran into the steering wheel.

So! Right now I have a bid in for a 1996 Hilux Surf SSR-G 3.4L 5VZ-FE with ~65k miles. If all goes according to plan, I'll have it in a few days and will instantly be looking to put a supercharger on it and then stick it on a boat to meet me in the states. I do have one question I was hoping to ask on the forum. If I do not win this auction is there anything else I should be looking for on the Surfs? Thanks, Scott.

Greetings! New to the forum. Just purchased my second 4Runner, a 2018 SR5 Premium with 31,000 miles. Had a 2009 several years ago that I drove for 5 years. After driving a European sedan for 4 years, Iím back to driving a 4Runner!

Hello. New here. Thinking of purchasing a 21 (I'd like a SR5 Premium, but my wife likes the more refined look of the Limited). Have some specific questions for the enthusiasts here. Will have to wait my turn until I get to 15 posts. Meantime, I'll be browsing.

Hello!

Hey everyone, new to the forum here.

Iíve been driving an 05 Sport V8 for about a year now with all the classic flaws (Cracked Dash, Cracked Headers, Blown Sub) and have finally decided to do something about it.

Usually do most work myself but Iím getting ready to tackle this leaky Xreas and decided to join for some assistance.

Cool Saving for a 3rd Gen to buy next year

Since I was six years old and I saw a 2nd gen in the parking lot of a Kroger, the 4Runner has been my favorite vehicle. I've decided this year to save money for a 3rd gen, 2001-2002, and finally buy one to make my forever car.

I've read the 3rd gen forum buying guide and made extensive notes. I'm making plans for what upgrades, tires, dashcams, etc I want so I have a whole build list.

Can't even explain how excited I am to save for a goal and make that happen in April of 2022. Hoping the forum is a good spot for ideas, feedback, inspiration, and help.

a few lame pics will have to suffice....
Beautiful Runner man!
