    I love the seven year check-in. It shows we truly care. My guess is the OP bought a Ridgeline.

    The OP appears to lack stick-to-it-iveness. Or maybe someone here hurt his feelings. I'm still sticking to that he's a star mod at Ridgeline forum somewhere.

    I recognize the OP's screen name from a moto forum I used to frequent. I believe he's been a 4 Runner owner for quite some time.

    We would like him to confirm that. Have him pop over if you can. We have questions.

    Good choice with the v8 4Runner. The only downside I can think of would be having to replace a cracked manifold.

    Full disclosure, I just revived this thread because first gen was a little slow and boring that day. This was the oldest thread. Proof that first gen is the best forum.

    Back on topic. The V8 4th gen 4runner is one of the greatest toyota creations on planet earth. I intended to replace my 3rd gen with one.
