Long Time Lurker, this Forum is Awesome

I bought my 4Runner in 2019 and have been lurking and stealing ideas from this forum for a long time. I finally started to take notes on all the things I've done to my 4Runner and realized... I don't meet the 15 post minimum to post anything =). So here is my first post. Obligatory picture attached.

Thanks all!

Nice rig! MGM was originally my second choice behind Army Green. But the dealer I was working with said "Are you open to red if I can get it in a couple weeks?", I jumped on it.

I bought my Tacoma used, it was everything I wanted except it was red and at the time I wasn't a fan. I bought it anyways and over the last 7 years with it I now love the color.

When my dealer listed the colors of TRDOR allocated to them I immediately put my deposit on the red one.

Never disliked Red, but just never saw myself choosing red as a top pick. Really happy with it now we had it.

Just picked this 2017 ORP a few weeks ago, this is after getting it back from the detailer since the dealer I bought it from didn't do a good job at all.

Have a few other items for it to put on, so far I love it.

New here and confused how to use forum

Hello, I hope that this is okay supposed to here. appreciated the post about the purchase of a 1999 runner with 350k on it. We have a 1999 SR5 which is the reason I joined the forum. We have loved this vehicle so much, so tough I call it the Taliban car. We have to sell it because my partner is banned from reentering the US for two more years. Can anyone please direct me, are we allowed to post for sale on this site? Thank you very much, Trish

New manager here

Hey ya'll,

Just saying Hi. I have a 2000 4Runner 3.4 SR5 RWD. I have owned it since 2002 and it has been a super reliable car. Since I live in Denver, CO and no one will buy this car from me (because it is RWD) I have decided to fix it up and see how far she will go. I am doing all the wrench turning myself. Currently 210,000

Near term plans:
Full fluids maintenance (in progress)
New AT Tires
Front and rear bakes (DONE)
Front and Rear suspension rebuild (in progress)
Valve cover gaskets
New rear gate struts


I am working on safety and core mechanical issues before I get to any beauty or comfort mods.

New to the whole forum experience, so I'm excited to join in the fun. I don't have any recent photos of the rig but here are some older ones.

Welcome fellow 3rd Genner!

Why not start a build and maintenance thread over in the 3rd Gen section?
We love pictures!

Swapping out my engine

My engine seized up on me after 350,000 miles during an overheating situation so I bought a used V8 from another 2004 4Runner that was totaled. I've been working hard for the last month getting the new one installed.

I appreciate having a forum like this to help me through some of the tough points.

1999 sr5

New here. 99 SR5 that is stock. Bought it with 220k on it and have 247k now. Been fixing mechanical things first before mods. Battery, alternator, master cylinder, brakes, full service (all fluids), injectors, MAF. Saving now for UCA and OEM LBJ. I have suspension waiting but would rather do it all at once. Love all the knowledge on here.

My Heep WK of about 10 years was clapped out, and my old man had a sweet 2nd gen when I was growing up, so the choice was clear. Picked this up about 2 weeks ago.

2011 Trail, had about 118k when I bought it.

No major "mods" per se planned, but I have FJ-style lettering on the way for the grill, and it's time for new tires.

Excited to be part of the community here.
