    We are retired and go back and forth between Washington and SoCal desert near Ocotillo Wells. Bought a 97 4runner new, gave it to my daughter for college, she is 34 now and still drives it with 285,000 miles, runs great and her mechanic is awesome. Never had an engine or tranny problem. So we have RAM 3500 CTD which is a LITTLE heavy for off roading and just by luck we found a used 97 4 runner exactly like my daughters, only a Limited version with a locker. 185,000 miles, just had everything done including fluid flushes, timing belt and WP, then we did a 2" lift, KO2 tires, Bilsteins and Wet Okole seat covers. So many good desert trails here!
