Been a while since i've had much of anything to post, but figured i would give yall some pictures to look at.

A while back i bought a honda civic just to drive back and forth to work some and keep some miles off the Duramax, and it kinda sucks to throw two kids up into the this 10 times a week.

Rolled in the civic for a while but was constantly looking for something else. Was on Craigslist one day and saw a 4runner for sale pretty cheap at a little dealer in Durham. Went and checked it out, decided i had to have it. 45 minutes later i had traded them even for the Civic and was rolling home in this.

1996 3.4 5 speed factory elocker, and pretty freakin clean

Its in really good shape, everything works from the power antenna to the factory 3 disc changer haha. AC, cruise, all good to go. Only real area of concern was the mileage.

The mileage was honestly a part of why i bought it. Original engine, tons of service records, and had been owned by the same man since it had 30,000 miles on it in 1997. Not sure what made him trade it in to a little car lot after all those miles, but who cares, it runs great.

At first when you buy something with all those miles you're a little timid with it. After a week or two i realized it was fine, and no reason to baby it. So i started just driving it however i wanted. Did a little high speed testing


Really just took that picture because you dont see an odometer and a speedometer that high in the same pic very often.

Cruised right past this mark during the summer


Been driving it most every day since march and havent had a single issue. Its sitting at 354,xxx right now and decided it was time to get her broke in right.

Bought some 265/75/16 Maxxis Bighorns for it last week and I'm headed to Harlan thursday with Daylon. Gonna drive it there wheel all weekend, sleep in it and drive her home. Should be a new kind of challenge to show some restraint so i can make it home.

Plan to throw a little lift on in the next month or two, and probably some sliders. Keep it simple and not dump a ton of money into it.

Should be fun to take these two to Uwharrie to wheel and camp soon.

Awesome, didnt know you were coming. You have a spot at the camp ground reserved? I planned to maybe just camp up at whitetail or top of creampuff or something, but if you are at the campground i would love to stay down there with you, i'd be glad to split the cost with you. Let me know.
