    New to the 4Runner... not new to Toyotas. Picked up an '05 SR5 this past year - was expecting a very long search for a rust free 4R here in Maine... lucked out finding one from central FL - hadn't seen snow or salt - promptly got it rustproofed and undercoated to help in the life expectancy department.
    We haven't had an automatic transmission in about 25 years so I'm finding it a bit hard to get used to - keep reaching for the shifter when I slow down.

    Had a '99 Ford Ranger since '04 - 93K miles on it when I got rid of it - NO mechanical problems ever in all that time, but the frame rusted out from the crap they put on the roads around here for the ice & snow - that's why we rushed right out to undercoat / rustproof the 4R.

    I disagree! You are wrong. This is the best Color. It was so good they only made it one year because its so majestic.

    ^ I concur. Best. Color. Evar! Reminds me a lot of my dad's 94 pickup, was basically the same color.
