Hey Gang,

Just joining the forum. Long time Yota fan. I've owned the following in the past:
'87 PU 22RE Corvette Yellow
'97 4runner SR5
'09 Taco with 6' bed

Taken all of them off roading (especially the '87....man I miss that guy) but never made many mods other than tires, etc. I'm in the market again for a PU or 4runner. Don't need a daily driver but want a clean ride that is good for weekend camping adventures and long trips. May make some mods down the road to go play in the mud or climb some rocks. Just miss having a Toyota!

Anyway....found a local '95 4runner 5-spd 3.0 V6 in Arizona. Private seller is asking $8000 obo. Here are the stats:
Second owner
Originally purchased in Tucson
180k 'highway' miles
New exhaust and cat
Wheels balanced
New battery
New Alt
New fan belts
Said check engine light has been coming on so his mechanic is doing complete "tune up" before he'll let me test drive it.

I haven't been able to see it yet since he's been having the work done to it. Pretty familiar with Toyotas and feel confident inspecting / test driving the car. Looks very clean in photos...possibly not taken off road much. I will ask him about the water pump and timing belt when I test drive it.

Now my question: If everything looks good (fluids, CV boots, cat, drives smooth and has power,) is an offer of $6000 too high? '95 isn't the year I would prefer, but if it's as clean as it looks online and he's had it tuned up, I think it might be worth it. Also it's only 10 miles away from me, so I wouldn't be put out to go and give it a look.

Any input is appreciated. Looking forward to many more posts here!

Cheers!

I posted earlier which is a good thing so hopefully you all can help. I havenít done any service work to my 91 4Runner and I live in st George where itís 100 degrees outside. I was just sitting in the drive through and my engine, running idle (around 1000rpm since I had the AC running) and it abruptly shot down to about 500 and lower and lower and then it quit. Tried to get it on video the second time and it did the same thing but before it quit it jumped back up? Weird right? Any thoughts? Also my gas light was on with a full tank so Idk whatís up. Also is it possible to post a video on here? Thanks

Still trying to figure out where the first 15 post are to be posted

Hey There, as a new member I'm trying to figure out where I'm to post. Does every newbie keep posting in this thread? Are there any people reading this that can help make the initial introduction more fun for us newbies? Anyone?

Been lurking for a while. Finally pulled the trigger on a '95 auto 4wd 3.0 (I know, not the greatest engine). Super clean and not abused. Plenty of small issues to keep me busy tidying up stuff. Once its proven itself reliable then I'll start modding/upgrading. Until then K.I.S.S.

Newbie

I just purchased a 2014 Limited in Magnetic Gray Metallic. I have been looking for almost 6 months, and never found the right one. Drove 2 hours to purchase it!

I used to own a 2007 Yukon Denali, and I wanted another truck frame SUV, but better gas mileage...

Just got an 04

Hello all. Just bought an 04 sport edition. Really liking it so far. Just started reading about some head-gasket issues on these . Hopefully mine is safe.

Cant wait to lift it and put some meaty tires on it and go off-roading.

Hey Mods, is there a better place to post a question as I'm trying to garner posts as a newb? Looking for some feedback on a potential purchase.

Thanks!
Ben

I am here to get the most out of this 4R, so I can spend quality with my wife and son. My 4 year old loves riding in the woods. If anyone is coming to Citrus WMA, let me know. It's only 5 minutes from my house. We try to head out there a couple times a month.

This is what I traded in and what I have now.
Looks great!!!

Just hit 100K miles on my 2000 4runner - hoping this thang lasts for years to come on the trails.

Hi there!

Longtime lurker, but new to being a member! Looking forward to continuing to learn about 4Runners, while also continuing to upgrade some stuff on my 2004 SR5.

Cheers!

This forum is awesome!! Already have found help on literally dozens of items with my new to me 2007 V6 4.0 Sport. Not my first Toyota but my first 4runner and I am wondering why it took me so long.

Thanks for all the info and I look forward to continue learning and sharing.

Kyle
