Toyota-knowing Opponauts: enlighten me

If I were to buy a mid-2000s 4.7 V8-powered Toyota SUV, such as a 4th-gen 4Runner or one of its bigger brothers, what is the highest mileage (with a reasonably good maintenance history) I should consider? Pretty high, right? Like, anything under 200k with a good history should be fine?

This would be a part-time vehicle for inclement weather commuting, camping and road trips, carting around dogs, etc., so I would be driving it fairly regularly but not adding a ton of miles per year in the future. Or should I be looking for a V6? I know so little...


Here’s a neat overland build for your time.
