    Picked up a 99 limited 4runner Saturday to part out Killer deal $500. But this thing is awesome so I'm going to keep it. Has some front end damage but an easy fix.

    yes, it will rub
    Lucky, I have been thinking about such project since I got the 2020 Runner, but the prices in Canada are simply disgusting, not to mention the quality of these slim pickings.

    I have that button. What does it do? Asked the dealer in 2002 and he couldn't tell me.

    I believe it changes the shift points on the automatic transmission so when you tow its better on the trans.
