Picked up a 2010 with 124k on it few weeks ago, 16k. Very clean minus the clear coat on the roof is gone. Changed out those mud tires for more of a regular off road tire. Has OME lift on it but the rear leafs are shifting too much so I'll have to change them out one day soon.

Thinking I’m going to get the falkens instead of the defenders fuck it yolo :oopsie:

If you haven't already, look at the toyo open country at3

I've run several sets of MT and RT on 3/4 ton trucks and bought a set for my tahoe last year. Drive 500mi/week and they've treated me well. They've stayed quiet and still handle rain well with a pile of miles on them. I'll likely be putting them on 4runner as well when I install the dobinson's.

damn this weekend was a doozy. drove the 4runner in snowmagedan and it performed amazingly, cleared a 1.5ft like nothing.

However, i guess i over pushed it. This morning when i started her up and put her in reverse she clunked and thumped. I guess those initial movements may have been ice within the brake system.

But now if i have to Hard brake / emergency brake it thunks. I don't hear it during casual driving or braking....

Anyone have an idea as to what that may be or experienced the same situation?

Bros. I almost purchased a 2001 LX470 with 250k miles for $8,800 but the seller scheduled someone to see the car before me even though I was first to respond to his ad.
I coulda been in you :(.

It was a steal. super clean and dealer maintained.


Been looking for a decently priced one for a while and have had 0 luck.

Could be a lot of things. Is it coming from the front? If so, might be loose or worn out control arm bushings. Could also be a loose caliper or damaged pads.

Yeah with stuff like this you gotta drop everything to be the first one to show up. Seller probably got 100 calls if it was a good deal
