FOR SALE: 2001 Toyota 4Runner Gen 3
Located in Boise, ID
$8k OBO

Very clean, mechanically solid, reliable as all get out and well maintained. Gen 3 4Runners are known for their versatility and "won't let you down" no matter where you are. Since you are here, you likely know that. I have tons of maintenance records and usually serviced at a dealership or super top-end shop. With about 189k on the clock, it's broken in but has tons of life left. We just did the head gaskets as there was a small leak. All major services done, so only thing major in about 30k is the timing belt according to local dealer Peterson Toyota - which gives this vehicle a thumbs up, BTW. Interior has the usual front seat tears (very common issue) so seat covers or a re-cover would be nice. Rear is in great shape. Has cargo cover, newer radio, heated seats, leather, wood grain appointments,'s the Limited model.

Other things to note:
- Big O Tires were put on about 11k ago (lifetime warranty on them)
- paint has "usual Toyota" clearcoat issues in some areas for cars of that era
- windshield replaced about 2 months ago
- has 2" hitch receiver & wiring
- Bizzak Snow Tires INCLUDED!!!! These only have 1.5 seasons on them...maybe 4k total
- front steel brush guard
- heated seats
- cold AC, hot heat
- very clean
- it's almost 20 years old, so there are some paint scratches and interior wear & tear, but nothing that you wouldn't expect
- roof rack
- radio antena was pulled out, but I listen to music through my phone anyway via Bluetooth or cable
- all weather mats
- NEW Toyota battery
- loads of maintenance records

This would make a great overland platform, as it's unmolested from original OR just keep driving it as is. Only reason we are selling is we recently inherited a newer car - otherwise I was going to start working on it for an overland / hunting's been all over the west and never ever let us down on or off road, snow or any condition. We've used it for road trips, raft trips, camping out of, name it.

$8000 or best offer. Thanks!

And photo album:
I have a CARFAX report as well - previous owner backed into something and since we've owned it, a very minor bump on the front. We replaced the brush bar and the hood more for cosmetic reasons. No engine damage, no airbag deployment...super low speed bump in a construction zone. Any questions, just message!

Try CL in California, if it will pass CA Smog, you will sell it fast over here, that is a nice example of a 3rd Gen for sure...

Does this have the rear E-locker? I’m not knowledgeable enough to know just from the year. Thanks!
