    Hey all. Just bought a 2000 Green SR5 with 207K on clock. Super clean inside and out.

    It's a tough little truck. Smaller than I thought they'd be. I feel a little bit squeezed, from driving around in my friend's Honda Pilot and going to the 4Runner.

    Tough little truck though in great shape. All stock. Feels a little cramped though, leg room, etc. Any other people feel this way? Can't rest my left elbow on door by window and keep hand on wheel. Doors seem slim, headroom not as much as I thought it'd have. Good price on it though and hard to find decently priced 4runners on CL, so had to just do it to have a vehicle.

    Wanted a vehicle conducive for hunting and hauling band gear...maybe toting a small trailer for the motorcycle and whatever else needs hauling around.

    Doesn't drive super smooth at 75mph. 16 yrs old though...so... not sure what to expect really...

    We'll see. Probably going to be good, we'll see what happens but initial comparison I like the Pilot more.

    She sure has aged well and really looks good for a 2000 model. Makes me wonder if our '16 will look that good in 2032 but, given my age, I'll never know. - Ted!

    Sure does, thanks. Had her loaded up with 3 tree stands, 2 bow cases, 3 people, 3 backpacks and high hopes of baggin' a nice mature deer this weekend. Didnt happen but first time out, it was great to be able to take all that equipment and provide the ride. She needs a bath now though, got a bit dusty from the gravel roads.
