Made it to 300,000 miles!

1994 Toyota 4Runner SR5 V6 4dr SUV 4WD
I recently parted with a trusty "Yoda" toyota sr5 v6 3.0L that got me everywhere and back in style and comfort. Had the wonderfully over-built transfer case and the tank of a 5 speed manual transmission. I averaged about 22 mpg and was over joyed at the fact these things were made to do it all!. can't tell ya how many times i pulled ford, dodge, and chevy pickups out of 3 foot snow drifts with no problems. I would suggest the 1995 and older versions as they were built the heaviest. Would get another 1994 one without thinking :) Only reason i got rid of it was cause i decided it was time to trade and i picked up a Chevy 1500 in it's place.
abs, manual 4l/2l/4h/2h transfer case, decent interior and anti-theft system. Cruise is amazing, 4L is like a creeper in 1st gear and can pull anything short of a house.
Toyota had it right with their older sr5 4Runners, only thing i can suggest is that they add a heavier clutch and thicker disc's in the tranny, oh and get rid of the stupid abs please? Heater fan could be stronger in these orv's
