Yes the 4Runner is my Daily Driver.
She loves it, and in fact took it to work today. I cannot fit the SMB into the parking structures at work. Until we get another commuter figured out, she will take the SMB to work (only about 6 miles each way), and I will continue with the 4Runner.
We should have this figured out pretty quickly...

Coincidence? Maybe. Or Maybe the wife likes the SMB a whole lot more than the Windstar.

Find a good paintless dent repair guy. Usually pretty cheap, and they can work miracles. $100 is well spent to keep from seeing it every day and getting mad all over again!

Re: Our Silver 2005 5.4L 2WD RB50 SMB

Congratulations! I've just started my hunt again, and this is EXACTLY what I"m looking for. It's what my first SMB was (sure regret selling it but I moved abroad in 2008) and it was perfect for my "NFS road" type of backwood camping.


I'm encouraged that rigs like this beauty -- in good condition -- do crop up.
