    Time Tested, Toyota Durablity. — I really like this truck. Toyota did a great job building the "can't kill" (via Top Gear) vehicle. The space is unbelievable and it's four wheel drive is epic in the mud or snow covered ski areas. Nearly 280K miles and still runs like new!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very low maintenance. Easy to work on my self. Styling still holds up well.

    Cons: Rough ride. Not enough power to get through most places here in Pacific Northwest.

    Rock Solid Truck — this rig was sweet. was the best 4x4 i ever owned, drove. even the little tiny 4cyl 22re powerplant was good. only found one hill it wouldnt do. i miss my truck and am looking for a new one even as we speak.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: lots of room, cheap on gas, great off road

    Cons: weak power plant

    Favorite Truck Ever — i loved my 89 4runner it was my favorite vehicle yet the removable top was a blast. this truck was tough as nails and the only part that ever broke offroad was the rear bumper. although fairly gutless on the highway i could get close to 29 mpg canadian. the truck did burn its share of oil and the 2 doors were a little iinconvient but it was awesome regret selling

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: good offroad, good gas mileage, convertible, reliable

    Cons: 2door, a little gutless

    1989 Toyota 4runner — I love this truck! It is pushing 300,000 miles and is still as stout as an OX! This truck is well put together. It has never really had any major repairs needed. I had the alt rebuilt and had to put a new clutch master cyl. Both came after 250,000 miles. It is great on a sunny day to take the top off and just ride!

    Pros: Its a Toyota. Need I say more?

    Cons: None worth talking about

    Rock Solid — If you are looking for a 4x4 that won't let you down in the bush or on the trails look no ferther. I have drivin this thing harder than any truck should be driven and it has always asked for more. it is by no means a speed demon but as soon as you lock in the hubs and put it in 4x4 its a monster that not much can stop.

    Pros: amazing 4x4 capibilitys

    Cons: not much power stock
