Hey y'all! This is my first time owning a 4Runner, also my first time owning a 4Runner or a 4WD vehicle. In the past I've owned a couple of Ford Rangers, and an assortment of sporty/sports cars. I know I am going to miss driving a manual, but I got really tired of a 2-door car.

I've got 3 medium/large dogs (a lab, an aussie, and a golden retriever) so an SUV with a lot of space in the cargo area was a must. I was mostly interested in a WK or WK2 Grand Cherokee, a 2009+ Xterra, or a 2008-2012 Pathfinder. I had mostly given up on 4Runners and Land Cruisers due to cost, but one popped up about 3 hours away so I decided to pull the trigger.

It's a 2008 Limited in excellent shape inside and out, with under 60k miles!



I've had to address a few issues so far:
  • Recharged the AC. So far it's still going strong, which is a relief because I was worried there was a leak.
  • Replaced the stock bulbs in the dome light with some LEDs. I plan to do the same to the map lights.
  • Front windshield washer wasn't working, but pump was making noise and rears worked. I tracked it down to a cut/repaired hose near the back passenger edge of the hood -- bought some new tubing and couplers and swapped out the faulty portion and it works like a charm



Next project is to figure out the whistling/squealing sound from the rear wheels. It only happens at very low speeds (under 8mph) and seems a little louder when turning. But even then, it's hard to hear unless the windows are down. Anyone have some guesses as to what this may be?
Noise from rear wheels may be brake sensors, Congrats on your 4runner

Looks good

Congrats on your 4Runner, it looks good!
I am looking for one now. Its hard to decide on year and version.
Limited looks good for sure. I really don't want the 3rd row seating. Used Trail versions seem to be in short supply. I found a 2008 similar to yours but its not much cheaper than a 2013 SR5. Any suggestions?

Nice rig. Super low mileage. You got a lot of years and miles left to go
