I became the proud owner of a 1999 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD in 2009. The vehicle already had quite a history when I got it, having been stolen from the original owners just long enough for their insurance company to buy them a new vehicle. It was found abandoned soon after with hardly any miles added to the odometer and no damage to speak of. Having already received a new vehicle, the original owners had no need for it and so I got it for a steal (pun intended). Since I took it home with about 106k miles, its been my daily driver, my ski friend/gear carrier, and my home base on camping trips. I have made a number of modifications to my 4Runner over the years to suit my needs. To the right I have individual articles to document many of the upgrades I have performed.
