Greetings from San Diego

Hello everyone.
I have owned my 2000 Xtra Cab SR5 4x4 for about 5 years now. I bought from a buddy of mine, the original owner. Upon purchase it had a broken passenger side motor mount. Sheared right off the frame. All due to my buddy completely hammering this truck at Glamis and Anza- Borrego. Jumping it, flooring it, going up Comp Hill at Glamis in reverse... Oh yeah! Even for a Toyota I am surprised this was the only major thing wrong with it. Oh and the rear end blew up, and he had it rebuilt just before I bought it.
The 5VZ-FE still runs like a raped ape, even with 268,000 miles on it. At 260,000 the clutch finally went, which my buddy says was the original one. I couldn't afford to put an OEM clutch in it, so hopefully the HD unit from LC
Engineering holds up the same, or close...
I also replaced the plugs, wires and coil packs at around 250,000. Not that the motor was missing or anything was wrong, I just wanted to see if she would fire up a little quicker than 3 or 4 cranks when hot. The burn on the plugs looked great. Talking to my buddy about it he said what I replaced was the original components, all of em! So I replaced with OEM. Very happy with this truck. The last Toyota I owned was an '87 Xtra Cab 4x4 with a 4 banger- great truck as well! Enough for now, thanks for having me.
Here are some pics...
