    So I own a 1991 4runner its not a 4x4 nor manual sadly but I been having a problem.
    Where I would drive for 30 minutes or so perfectly then I'll cut the engine for who knows what gas, food etc. Once I try to start her up again and turn the key it just makes one click noise.

    It can't be the battery because that was replaced not too long ago
    It will start again if I leave it for like 15 minutes, so i don't know whats the problem.

    Sorry if my explanation was bad.

    Vapor lock maybe? Plugged PCV valve maybe? Are you sure the battery connectors are tight?

    Check battery connections, make sure they are tight and corrosion free. Next, check the battery grounds. If those look good, and you are for sure confident that the battery is good... then perhaps alternator may be getting weak?
