Finally pulled the trigger on an 03 4runner sr5 v8. I originally had a 93 chevy C3500 crewcab, dually, 6.5 turbo diesel and that thing was my dream. However, i lost it due to some ice and a tree. It took me a long time to find another vehicle to love and with the help of another 4runner freak buddy of mine i think i have my new love. Im looking forward to making this forum my home.

Hello!

I just purchased a 2001 Toyota 4Runner Limited on the 3rd! My brother suggested I join a forum, and so here I am.

To anyone looking to buy, my advise: have an idea of what you want, have money ready, and be aggressive!

I had a handful of amazing 4runners slips through my grasp because I didn't make my move quick enough. Seriously, they sell fast!! But I finally landed one. WOO!

To anyone who reads this, greetings!

In 16 months of ownership, I'm at ~$5000 invested...including purchase price.

The search for 4runner is almost over so I figured it was time to join. We are in Colorado to visit family and part of the trip is to take home a corrosion free vehicle.

Learned a bunch here already which will help me to make a sound purchase, and look forward to learning more as time goes on.

New user for the wrong reason

Found this place for all the wrong reasons. The insurance company just totaled my 1998 4Runner 2.7L that up until the incident was all set to go another 250k miles. Can't stomach sending it to the scrap yard with just front end damage so looking at this site to either help bring it back to life or find her a new home.

I don't disagree but I think it's going to be too much for me. Airbags went off and I've got bigger fish to fry. One of the best cars I've owned and I have the 97 Tacoma with the same motor. Will find someone who's stoked on it.

Hello, just closed on an 05' Sport, Black with charcoal interior, 112k miles. I have been lurking and reading this forum for a few months to make sure I knew what I had to watch out for. It's already been a huge help like - I didn't know about being able to log into the Toyota system to see the work done at dealerships in detail. Which is why I was a nervous wreck when I found my runner. I caught it before it hit the sales lot and nagged the heck out of the sales guy for pics of everything. I didn't want to miss this one. I wasn't quick enough on a couple of other gems, but good fortune and patience paid off. The maintenance record is impeccable, the two previous owners had 100% of the work done at dealerships and they were religious on fluid changes and general maintenance, etc... Frame has some rust, but nothing a wirewheel brush on angle grinder and some Eastwood rust coatings won't fix.

I go to pick it up this Saturday and will post up a pic. Pretty straightforward plans for it, mild lift( new springs and shocks, not spacers), bigger tires, typical stuff, and just making it ultra reliable. I'm fortunate in that it's more of a toy for me and not my main transportation, so it will go to my son in a few years when he's driving. It will see some 4wheeling duties for sure!

Flat Rack accessories

Hi all,

I'm looking for something lightweight I can put on top of my Baja flat rack to create a more stable platform to stand on or sleep on. Currently it's a bunch of tubes running the width of it. I would like to find something that I could attach in 4-5 sections that isn't too heavy either. Any ideas here?


Steve

Hello

I am new to the forum and the Hilux 3.0 turbo diesel. I was looking under the hood and saw a relay for a fuel heater. How does it operate? Do you turn it on somehow? I donít see a switch inside the cab anywhere. If anyone has any info in this please help. We are in northern Indiana and it gets chilly here to say the least. Also any suggestions on an engine block heater would be great.
Thank You For this thread
