So the trusty 4Runner rolled 333,333.3 at a convenient place for me to snap a few pictures today. I purchased it 6 years ago from the original owner who had it dealership serviced since new. Obviously I service it myself now but just goes to show whatgood mmaintenance can do for a vehicle. This is the original engine that's never been rebuilt. As shown in the pictures it still has excellent oil pressure and remains my daily driver. Hopefully I can eclipse 400,000 on the original engine which is my goal. I purchased the truck with 255,120 miles on it.
Currently running Rotella T4 10w30 CK-4 with a Napa gold 1348 filter.

Look again; under the photos.
He's running dino 10w-30 HDEO. Presumably not the CK-4 for the whole 80k miles, but he'd have to chime in with details.

The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters. - under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan - over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money
My old 1991 Ford Ranger had 354K when sold. Engine still showed no signs of wear, ran as quite as day one, oil consumption never increase from when new. Of course used M1 10-30 for the entire life of the truck at my normal 10K OCIs.
To the OP, great to see vehicles cared for and ran for long runs.
