Default First time 4Runner owner and loving it...

I'm a big BMW nut (had about 9-10 in my 16-17 years driving a car) and currently have a very nice 2003 330i with 193k miles. However, my family is of the Toyota variety... mom has a 2017 Corolla, dad 2013 Camry, sister 2017 Rav4, bro in law 2011 Camry and my business partner has 7-8 Toyota/Lexus vehicles in his family. He's the reason I'm here as he got me excited about the idea of off-road and purpose built vehicles, thus my recent purchase of a 97 4Runner limited.

I bought it yesterday for $2900 from the 3rd owner who has had it since 99 and it has 254k miles. Mostly an Arizona vehicle, it only has some surface rust along the bottom and some hinges, otherwise very clean and in good shape. Attached is one of the photos the seller sent me.

I have a lot of plans for it, but first and foremost I will be browsing these forums for maintenance recommendations so I can take care of EVERYTHING (timing belt, cooling system, all filters, all fluids, etc.). After will come some sliders, bumpers, etc.

Glad to be here and I look forward to learning from everyone.
