Maybe soon to be new gen 4 owner?!

I have a 4Runner in my sights. Not a Toyota owner, but I'm working on that.
I seek your collective wisdom...

I found this smooth-running, smooth-shifting, impecible, and seemingly-well-taken-care-of 2006 4Runner Limited V8 4wd. The catch, it needs tires (in the next year or so) and it has almost 264,000 miles on it. I haven't taken it to a shop to investigate yet, but that is my next step.

I tried to find a problem with this thing (other than mileage), but I couldn't. No exhaust leaks, nearly rust free, good brakes, solid suspension, tight front end, smoke-free exhaust, clean title, everything works. Well, not true, the headroom leaves one to desire more, but eh.

I don't, currently, commute, I work from home; so I won't be adding many miles.

I am replacing a 00 Grand Cherokee Laredo (116k mi), with death wobble that I nor a Jeep shop could cure, even with an basically a new front-end suspension.

Nothing is a sure thing but that sounds like a solid find assuming a thumbs up from a reputable mechanic. I wouldn’t consider needing tires a drawback, you’ll have to buy some eventually and look at it as a chance to put on the tires you want.

That 2uz engine is bulletproof. You take care of it and it will last a long time.
