Nice find! You'll like maintaining the silver vs other colors.

There used to be a hot Silver Streak rig in the club. Mine must have been a male, since it liked humping rocks so much....

Nice find Chris! I'm driving an '05 4Runner Limited after selling the FJ62 and have to say I'm loving the Runner!

X2...Scott gives good advice.

We very rarely got above 20MPG all around with our 4Runner, particularly at 65+ it's mileage dropped like crazy.
5th gen loose the full time case unless you buy a "Limited". This is my largest complaint with the 5th gen. $th gen I belive your correct on the 4WD options.

Working at the dealership driving many 4th gen 4Runners I always got 20+ according to the trip computer thing. Don't know how accurate that was though. Best on V8 was 23 from Durango to Cortez. Best on V6 was 27.1
