Testes...

Testes...

3?

Is this thing on?

Hi! My name is Jason, friends on forums call me Jason or BD. Wifey and I were taking our Camry camping in places we shouldn't or worse we weren't able to go places because our beloved Camry couldn't, so we went and found our 4runner.

99 Limited, with an e-locker. 250k miles but from what I see it was taken care of. It's our new camping car that happens to be my daily driver.

I'd say more but I have a 15 post goal to hit. For now I'll just close with a pic as it sits in my driveway after ordering Heat Shield shades for all six side windows and the back (for camping of course!)

This is where the imgur pic is SUPPOSED to go... hmm. Circle back and figure out why it's not posting later. (Yes, I do talk to myself )

Appears we need to upload the photo as opposed to linking within the post. Odd but I got the pic to post

Hey all, new member here. Just started the search for a used 5th Gen. Currently driving a 2009 RAV4 but I'm young and single and decided life is too short to not drive something you're excited about. Super happy to be here and hopefully I'll be making a purchase soon!

New user: NEED ADVICE from SALT STATERS

Ok, new guy here. I am set to purchase a 2004 4runner Limited v8 with 130k miles from Wisconsin for $7,950 (I live in Colorado where used 4runners resell for insane prices).

The dealership (family owned, good reviews) has been very kind and sent me tons of pictures. I had a local mechanic check the car out and report card was pretty good for a car this old.

I've heard horror stories of frames rusting so bad that they get holes in them and mechanics won't even put them on the rack. I asked the dealership to send me pics of the frame and also talked to one of the staff (maybe owner) and she said shes very aware of that issue and inspects them thoroughly at the auction before buying. She said this one has some surface rust, but nothing bad enough to be concerned about, especially since I'm taking it back to Colorado.

What's your opinion after looking at the pics? Some spots look a little rough, some not bad at all. I don't see any holes anywhere. Assuming it's not bad, is there a way to reinforce the frame with more metal or protect it somehow?

Thanks in advance!

Just came upon this and hope it's all good to comment! I'm new to the site and have been skimming through to help with my build. Have a 95 runner with the 3 slow and blew the head gasket (no surprise) now just finishing up dropping a 2000 3.4 into it and trying to get all the kinks out. Glad to be a member though!

Hello and opinion on vehicle for sale

Hello all,

I'm Karl out in AZ and I've been lurking on the site for a while but finally signed up and trying to get my 15 posts. I've been looking for an 06-09 V8 Sport for a while and was wondering if people would give their 2cents on this one that just popped up.

$14,800

52,000 mi

1 owner

CA coastal rust (see pictures below) seems like something a wire brush would fix.

It is missing some of the plastic on the interior, ceiling handles, and the carpet in the back doesn't seem to fit. Sign of possible damage in the past?

What is also weird is the roof racks also don't appear to be the tube type that goes with the Sport Edition. the Carfax says its a V8 SR5/ Sport and it has the hood scoop? Did someone just swap the hood?

Is something wacky going on here or nothing to worry about?

Thanks in advance.

Just picked up a used 2016 sr5 and couldn't be happier. Creeped around on the forum for about 6 months before I bought one. Lots of good info. Need to hit 15 posts so I can reach big boy status on here.

New to me 96 limited

Hey y'all. I've been looking for a deal on a 4Runner for a long time and finally found the one. 1996 Limited with locking diff, sunroof, almost perfect leather, mild height with longer springs, new ball joints axles and shocks, and Just generally in great shape. I only paid $2500 which is about half of what I think it's worth after watching the market for a while and given it's condition and options. I can't explain how tight and solid this thing is compared to a lot of others in this price range.

The seller and I had already agreed on the price before I looked at it and I flat out told him it was worth more than he was selling it for. It was very apparent that he didn't need the money and he just said enjoy it. Very kind and cool dude for sure.

I am already in love. I enjoyed my XJs for what they were but this thing is just perfection. I've already taken my kiddo out for a little fun in it and my wife is already over being angry at me after driving it. I commute in a Focus ST and it's gonna be hard not to just grab the keys to this every morning.

Anyway, now the customizing begins. I'm going to work very hard to preserve this thing and only add functional and necessary items that don't permanently alter the vehicle. I'm leaning toward more Overland approach than straight rock or mud given what I've used my 4x4s for in the past. Trying to do tasteful and reasonable while getting the full use of this thing's capabilities but keeping it so that my wife can drive it without being annoyed.

Hello guys , been lurking around here for over a year. In looking for a replacement for my beloved TTE FJ I was down to a 4runner TOR premium, Tacoma or a GX460.

Well this Thursday i finally pulled the trigger on a 19 MGM TOR an i couldn't be happier!

Thanks to all for the info you have shared over the years for the public to help make informed decisions.

Thanks - Andrew
