    Thanks for adding me. I just bought my first 4Runner, a 2004 White Limited 4x4. I'm super excited to find cool stuff on this forum to mod out my vehicle.

    I pick it up from the dealership tonight. I already want to put in Husky mats, black powder coat on the chrome brush guard and tint the windows. I spent a couple of hours on the forum last night!

    Well that was short-lived. It had extreme rust under the vehicle that I didn't know to look for and it wouldn't pass inspection. The dealership ended up getting in a 2005 Limited 4x4 the same day and after much hassle, I took delivery last night. It looks like it was extremely well taken care of and it has 107,400 miles on it. The previous owner put a Borla cat-back exhaust to it, Pioneer touch screen, replaced all the interior lights with leds, same with the running boards and aftermarket alarm system. It cost $1000 more than the 04 but it's well worth it.

    :canada:Welcome aboard. It seems that you wound up with a real gem after all, well worth every penny of that extra $1,000. Look after your 4R and it will look after you. - Cheers, Ted

    I've been reading all the posts on the forum so I can hopefully drive this for another 150,000 miles!
