Twinjibber77I'm trying to cop a 4Runner. In my hunt I found out about the following of the GX/LX470, I had no idea about that and it's pretty impressive.
All I have to contribute here.
BiffbarfHad a 99 taco. 3.4l. Absolutely indestructible. Ran it thru mud puddles so deep that eventually some got into the intake. Let her dry out for a few hours, poured muddy water out of the intake pipe, and she fired right up.
Was in Ak at the time so it'd routinely see -40 and it didn't bat an eye.
Took it off some sweet jumps, dropped the transmission cooler out and pissed tranny fluid for a solid 2 miles till I noticed. Bypassed the cooler by mending the hose with a clicky-pen tube, limped it 35 miles to the nearest auto parts store for fluid, and sold it 2 years later with the pen still holding all the tranny fluid in.
At night you could damn near hear it rust, about the only thing wrong with it. Loved the truck. When I moved back to Co I sold it for 1500 more than I paid.
I know you're talkin the fancy v8 trucks, but just sharin' some yota-stoke
