Welcome to the first 4Runner chat in a series of periodic episodes in which we’ll discuss tips, tricks and trivia relating to 4Runners and the application of same to the pursuit of adventure outdoors.
The Toyota 4Runner is the king of SUVs, the Champagne of Overlanding rigs, the ayatollah of bumpy roads. When it comes to reliability, comfort and capability, for the money, you can’t beat a used 4Runner. So today we’re introducing a new segment of the show dedicated to sharing tips, tricks and trivia relating to the venerable Toyota 4Runner.
Joining me today are David Busha and Ray Tomlinson.
So these guys are high functioning weekend warriors, adventurers and general All-Terrain Types, and 3rd Gen 4Runner drivers.
David is my Brother-in-Law and was the first of us t get a 4Runner. His 1998 Limited is mostly stock over all, with some key mods and accessories customized to how they use it. You can see David and Dark Star in the Death Valley Adventure series on our YouTube Channel, All-Terrain Family.
Ray has a 2003 4Runner SR5, that started life as a pretty plain and clean rig, but has since been spruced up with proper Reno Slash Tahoe accouterments for camping, biking, skiing, the works.
It doesn’t hurt that they both work at the Reno REI store and have a wealth of knowledge and expertise on outdoor gear and activities.
