I have somehow, I think, triggered the immobilizer twice now. Crank but no start, seems fuel starved. 3 hours or so later, after calling AAA both times, it magically re-started. Luckily one time I was at work, and one time a mile away from home. Would suck if it happened in Moab, or the middle of nowhere, or a bear was chasing me. Lot's of info on this at MUD, but nothing definite yet....

It rides great,
I prefer the stock ride vs OME. Does it have comfort or sport shocks?

Man i hate the sport, If you want it to ride like a truck or 80 they are great. I need to find new shocks for mine

As B noted the 5 speed seems to be a little peppier

I agree with the OME shock issue as well. Completely ruined the ride of the "stock" truck. For a 90% daily truck, I think finding a externally adjustable shock is the ticket. Lots of companies going there now. I think even Bilstein got on the remote res ext adj shock bandwagon.

Tim, don't you think that price is high for the miles? I know lockers and rack, but those things aren't that costly. In comparison to ^^ here's an 03, low miles, very clean, kali truck. No rear visor....yes in California, but I bought mine out of there, and it was a cheap flight. Totally worth it. I usually give ~$1k deduction per 10k miles compared to others in the market. With that, his would be more than 100k miles, so ~$10k value difference. Then factor in what it might be worth with another 40k miles on it. The 03 still has good value, but what about the 98 with over 300k on it at that point?

I think it is a good price, even with those miles. Tires, lift, ARB locker... you're $4k in with those mods alone. So, I see a $5.5k Cruiser and the basic mods are done. I think it'll sell quick at that price point.

I live in the camp of weighing maintenance vs. mileage. Mileage is one part of the equation but not the biggest factor for me IMHO.

I dunno about stock vs OME, but it rides about 1000 times better than my 4runner, which rides like a brick

I knew the newer trucks with 5 speeds and VVTI were much nicer, but they were pricier. His budget was MAX 10k and he wanted mods. I saw an 07 with 95k miles but they wanted 27k for it, which wasn't in the cards.

Plus, he wanted the rear locker. It was really a matter of: he got a truck with a small lift, more power, and more room than the equivalent year 4runners were selling for in similar condition.

We got new front axles (OEM) and replaced those, along with diff seals, and a Slee diff drop. He got an ARB bull bar for the front and a 10k winch for the bar. It still needs new tires, but all in all, he's having fun with it.

He took it out as soon as we got the imobilizer fixed (wiped all the keys, replaced the transponder coil, and re-programmed the keys), and took a bit of damage going up Black Dragon Canyon in Utah to camp. Misjudged the width, and tried to drive through, ended up high centered on the rear diff after sliding sideways a bit, and got to have fun jacking and stacking for 3 hours to get out



Only actual damage was to the tail gate. The lower left corner got folded up. 2x4 and hammer took care of it.

Looks like I will be studying up here - we are adding a LX470 to the garage.

All of them? I was looking under the '99 LX and the rear diff is not labeled as LSD.

Pretty sure that was an option, but rear locker was never available on LX.
