    1999 Limited 2WD; I never see 2WD T4Rs back home in Pennsylvania, because nobody wants them there. I was able to get the year of this one by running the license plate through the California Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR) license plate lookup. It got smogged for the first time in 2010, which likely means that it came from another state. Due to the fact that it is 2WD and rust-free, I'm guessing it came from Arizona or Texas. According to the smog check records I found online, this T4R failed smog once in June 2014, twice in 2016 (June and August, respectively, with the second failure in August resulting in a referee inspection before it finally passed in October 2016), and a staggering fourth time in June 2020! Based on how well-maintained it looks from the outside, I'm guessing that it failed smog all four times for an incredibly stupid reason, and I blame California's draconian emissions testing laws more than I blame the owner; I've read all sorts of horror stories about fairly new vehicles not passing smog because the computer isn't ready, and other such nonsense...

    This 1997 Limited was abandoned, and my friend Michelle's salvage yard has a contract to tow abandoned vehicles in some jurisdictions. This T4R was brought in earlier this year, and since it was abandoned, it had no keys and no title. It also has about 300K miles and is not in particularly good shape. State law allows Michelle to become the legal owner of any abandoned vehicle she tows after so many days have passed, and I told her that she should try to get a title for it and sell it, but I'm guessing it had a lot of issues that made it not economically feasible to do that. As such, this T4R has been stripped of numerous interior parts, some engine parts, and a bunch of other parts; T4Rs will always be a hot commodity, so the good parts from this one will not go to waste!

    I saw this decent T4R from the Lone Star State parked in front of the Michener Museum today and stopped to take pictures; I immediately suspected that it was a 2WD since it had Texas plates, and a quick glance through the window confirmed the lack of a 4WD shifter. This rig is in good condition with the exception of the damage to the rear gate, and the lack of visible rust combined with the lack of 4WD makes me believe that this truck was sold new in Texas. The last picture shows the famous Mercer Museum directly across the street...
