1997 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD


I bought my 4Runner a little over a year ago with 111,000 miles and it was wrecked. I repaired the damage, installed a small lift, larger tires an HD hitch and electric brake controller. I bi-weekly haul 1-2 tons on my tandem axle trailer with very little problem. My 4Runner is a manual trans so I make the most of the power it has. I also off road it harder than one should their daily driver but this little rig is extremely capable and fun to trail run with the family. I also having been driving more lately putting on 1500-2000 last month and been getting 19 mpg consistently. I have nothing but good things to say about my beat up little 4Runner-wait one negative needs more headroom!!

Best Features

Factory Locking rear differential, mpg, power it has with 5-speed.

Worst Features

Stiffer rear springs, route the rear heat lines so you cant catch them on stuff and leak coolant all over.
