    Well, my 1997 Limited 4Runner is getting geriatric. You are likely to get rectalized by seat springs as my front seats have seen 267,000 miles of ass. Everything still works except for the back hatch. It won't latch closed so I rigged a strap with a buckle on the inside to keep it closed.

    It's getting pretty tired at this point. Everything is stock except the CD player and the front bumper, which I replaced after smacking a deer and skiddering on road ice into a ditch. I've hit two deer with the ARB since with absolutely no problems.

    Yeah, We'll hang onto it for now. It's starting to nickle and dime us, but not too bad. I could easily dump 3k into it replacing seals and fixing the back hatch... I think we are to the point of diminishing return on it now though. It still drives. It'll be a loaner vehilce and a taking the dog down to the river truck.
