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.

Enjoy.

I thought this video was entertaining, educational, and a little weird.

I gave my 22R powered truck away at 500k, only because the body was rusty and the frame cracked.
It was still on the road a couple of years later.

Transmission and diff were still on factory fill!

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

Thank your lucky stars you live in FL-or that truck would have rotted to death long ago. Rust is the inevitable death of most Toyotas up here!

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. thumbsup

I am afraid, they don't make it with the quality of the older Toyota anymore.
