Is it easy to get replacement parts for SR5 4runner2007 or 2008 V8?

5

Asked by Oct 27, 2012 at 03:20 PM about the 2008 Toyota 4Runner SR5 V8

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I plan buying the v8 engine of the 4runner but wonders if it will be easy to get replacement parts since they are not as common as the V6. I am told Toyota discontinued the V8 in 2010 and they were very few in 2009

I will be driving the truck in Africa with 70% driving on untarred road with potholes and a times on rocky roads. Will it be fine with a V6 Engine as well.

as for the v8, there will not be a problem getting parts as they used that same v8 in the several of their models, 4runner, land cruiser, tundra, Sequoia, and also lexus gx470, lx470, so it is still very popular motor. but for what your describing, the v6 will be fine for you. still plenty of power and better fuel economy than the v8, also less weight. and if you run into a step hill or any other sticky situation, you still have low range and that will always be more power than the wheels could have traction even if all on dry pavement. My v6 4Runner has 281k miles and still runs like new.
