    Personal info: I’m 18. I'm originally from Escondido, CA, but I'm currently studying Mechanical Engineering at ASU in Tempe,AZ. 4Running Daily is my username because it is my Daily Driver currently.

    My Runner:
    History: Dad leased it new, and then bought it with the intentions on me driving it to high school (successful). He took it up Black Bear Pass in Colorado, all stock. It was stolen out of my garage and was found about 16 hours later full of Candy and a printer that wasn’t mine.

    Black Bear Pass in 1996

    Great history and 4Runner! I like the picture of you washing it when you were young. I don't see how you didn't fall leaning over that much lol.

    I was set on the same thing! But bought a DSLR and am going to Jerusalem this summer instead. Maybe next summer.

    Keep that thing alive forever, man. They're disappearing quick.

    I'd love a Runner for vehicle camping/exploring etc. It's much nicer to be able to crawl from driver seat to the back if need be. I'd hate to be caught asleep in the bed of the Pickup with a crazy outside . . .

    I have 285's. Those are expensive and terrible for mileage. Go 255 or 245 if you can find them

    Jesus Christ lol. I ran KM2's once. Bladed the fuck out of them and now I have one as a spare for my set of Duratracs.

    My DD tires on a second set of wheels are 265/65/17 Bridgestones.
