    Its going for $13,999. 05' manual i4, 4x4 SR5. Access cab, looks pretty clean. I figured the 4 banger would get better mpg than the 6. but reading some posts, its not much more. Ive done as much homework as I can so far. I had a 96' 4runner, n that thing was a beast. loved it. i know toyota makes a great product. would like to get back into one, while staying within the budget! Thanks for your reply

    you know, i think i bought that 4runner with 70k. just kept oil in it when scheduled, and had it up until 140k. then it was totaled. Damn good vehicles.

    I just hit 170K on my '01 PreRunner DC. I've only had minor problems, and none of them have left me stranded.

    I get ~16-17 mpg, and I drive like an idiot. I rarely go less than 75 on the freeway, and I'm running 285's with stock gears (4.11).
