    Hey All!

    I just bought my first 4Runner this week. Its a 2000 SR5. She only has 152,000 miles on her and in great shape. I've always liked these older 4Runners. I come from the Jeep world. I've owned 3 XJs and still own a Jeep Grand Wagoneer. I live in Portland OR. Can't wait to take her out to the mountains.

    Excited to start working on my new 4Runner and making her just right.

    Anyone have any instant suggestions, tips, etc?

    If its like the newer ones it's just 5 or 6 bolts underneath that go up into the body, just have someone to help hold the other end so it doesn't fall on you (speaking from experience)
