    I grew up watching this show. It's a little nostalgia, but I thought people in this group would enjoy the clip.

    I bought one of those in 1996. Desert Dune color. I wish I still had it today. That said, I am loving the 2022 ORP I have now.

    None. Bone Stock. EXCEPT: Brushguard, tow hitch, both welded to the frame. It's good to have friends and a fully equipped garage!
    Gee, that's odd. That truck looks a lot like my 99 4Runner! Mine is in...wait for it...Desert Dune. With sparkles, may I add.

    Very cool, how small a world we live in...

    I don’t know what it is but Toyota makes every other car look like a piece of junk.

    There! Finally got a picture of our Desert Dune (WITH sparkles, mind you) 3rd gen (1999) 4Runner. The paint is still in amazing (to me) shape, although the umper ends have a slight rusting problem. Other than that, it's in great shape, inside and out.

    Sorry I took so long...
