4 cylinder double cab review (Prerunner)

If you have purchased a double cab with a 4 cylinder I would love to read a review by the owner. If it is a prerunner that would be ideal but just wondering if any you 4 cylinder guys out there got one or no someone who has one.

2nd gen. as I saw one in Mammoth Ca. this week and it looked really strange with the big ole fenders on it. In addition, it was all low and was not Prerunner'd at all. Just wondering what people though it they have driven one.

I am ok with it being a dog as I get great gas mileage with my little 4cylinder Prerunner AC. I would like a little more space even just a third seat in the AC would be fine, but I think it would be too much work.

I wouldn't think it would get very good mileage because you would have to floor it everywhere just to keep up with traffic.

Wow, must be a rare package. Im glad they did that though because having that 4 door 4cyl with an auto would be absolutely horrible.

really rare cuz who would really want that. i just checked egay and nothing. it took my friend 8 months to find a dealer who would order him a 2000 4runner in 2wd 4 banger 5 speed. no one wanted to be bothered. i forgot how long it took to build and get.he wanted that combo to slam it.it was the 2nd 4runner in that body to be slammed(1st was west coast customs)in this country

I got one

It's an '01 Prerunner Double Cab 2.7 A/T. No bells, no whistles, all stock. Yeah, it's kinda a dog off the line, but once it gets going (if you can call it that) she'll fly along pretty good. If you're nice to her, you can get low 20's in city/hiway driving. She'll haul all kinds of stuff, tho. Brought home my 2 bay Matco box w/hutch in the bed (tailgate closed, too - barely). Dragged a 90-something Cherokee across town without breaking a sweat. Hauled an old upright piano for my sister (even had a flat tire - the truck, not my sister!). Got it from my parents when they wanted to "upgrade" to a Ram 1500. They call it the sissy truck, but I haul stuff in it they wouldn't put in theirs. They might be pretty rare in this combo. Around town, most of the double cab prerunners I see are V6. Wonder if Toyota has any hard statistics on this?

there is a thread I posted about my taco in the 1st gen section- I have a 1st gen Dcab 4 banger TRD, as well as a few others on here.

yes 1st gen Dcabs are auto's unless tranny swapped

yes its slow off the line, but moves fine for me. what do I need to speed for? I haul plenty. and pull a 16ft flats boat no problem. this truck is a tank, if you find one good price, buy it, especially if it has the TRD package like mine. (no locker but upgraded suspension and alloys) they are hard to find

I will be upgrading to bfg a/t's soon, 265/75/16 and my fenders are also being painted flat black.

heres a pick of it how it is now

any questions just ask

what he^ said.
I dont even really consider mine a dog. It come's off the line pretty good, maintains speed well, hauls a 420 lb motorcycle just fine and I get 22mpg all day long on the highway with 3 inches of lift and a full time locker.
