    About 25, 000 miles so far since we got it. Getting ready to put another 3,000 on her over the weekend when we take her to TN to bid on a house this weekend in TN. She hasn't done any of the moving, we have used the big box truck. We left her down here in FL so we had a car to drive when we were here in between trips. She will be the last to go up being towed behind the box truck on the final trip.

    Well she just made it back from another successful 1900 mile trip to our TN place and back to SWFL. She has developed this knock when the wheel is turned to the left and the turn is bumpy. I suspect a bushing has evaporated and its metal on metal. Either a ball joint or the swap bar link. Will have to put it up on a lift and see. Her current mileage is 234472.

    Well she appears to need new front end components. Can't be mad considering her age and mileage.

    Well the Runner is living its best life up here in NE Tennessee. No complaints from any parties involved.

    New front end components happened or me Fourtoad and the Blazeland kit has been put through its paces a few weeks back. That harsh grating at full lock is often the steering limiting bolts and the curved hard stops on the lower a-arm that grates when the plastic gaps get mashed and fall off. A smattering of grease on the bolt heads and on the curved bracket help quiet this down until you can find new plastic caps for the bolt heads.

    Well all 5 vehicles, 4 bikes and 1 trailer have all been switched from FL tags & registrations over to TN tags & registrations. Between $93 - $98/each! My 4Runner is now a TN 4Runner and makes us proud daily. Still has the knock when turning at full lockout. Haven't investigated the fix Parker suggested yet. Too many more pressing irons in the proverbial fire right now.

    Finally replacing her broken speedometer cable. What a chore getting that dash apart.

    Well we seem to have a dash light out? Does anyone have lights that backlight the a/c controls? Only our a/c button is lit with the dash. Pics for reference. First was with a flash so you can see the a/c area and the second is without a flash so you see it isn't lighting up.20211209_182539.jpg 20211209_182232.jpg

    we got those as a close out on TireRack.com. We had the same wheels and tires on it before the accident that broke them. Just replaced them with the same thing.

    To change the bulb, remove the knobs off of the 4 slider controls. Carefully pull the face plate off and there is one of those miniature push in bulbs. I think there was a green plastic sleeve on the old bulb that I removed and slid on the new bulb.
