Was ready to buy a minty 3rd gen 4Runner yesterday for a good price. ANOTHER rusted out frame. I don’t think 3rd gens will even be on my radar anymore; this isn’t the first and sure won’t be the last one I see like this.
Boat should be sold soon, and with that extra cash to play with I’ll look at 4th gens, GX470s, and maybe even some cheap LX470s. I’d love a 2nd gen Montero but they don’t exist around me under 200k miles and/or rusted out as well.
