    Ok. moms 80 has 210k miles on it just had to do the new head gasket on it. parents are ready for a new car for her. debuting between a highlander(please, no), a 4runner, or a 1998-2000 cruiser. found a nice 99 cruiser in my area(DC) w/49k miles loaded and i think he is asking 25-30k not sure. it is on ebay right now. any opinions on the 100 series? thanks

    Get her a new Lexus GX470, about the size of an 80. Only costs around $42K :)

    I got a 99 LC last spring with 44k and a new five-year 50K warranty for a little under $30. (No locker :'( but it's going to be 95%+ onroad anyway).
    My wife likes it so much I may lose it to her. I recommend it highly.

    The GX is a 4-skinner with the softer springs and better leather of a Lexus treatment. Very nice and a great ride, but it'll depreciate $6-8k or more the minute you drive it off the dealer's lot.

    Pre-owned LX or TLC seems to me the way to go.

    Why change ???

    Buy her another 80, maybe 97 with 60-80K Miles and she will be very happy. She is already used to the 80, so why place her in a new boat?

    100s are the coolest mommy-mobiles around. Tell her to go for the 100.

    Not to offend anyone, I think Toyota stopped making a true 4wheeler after the 80 series, IMO. :-\

    How many times have we heard that in the past 20 years? I concur that IFS and rack & pinion steering make for a less stout rig, but I'm sure it does well enough offroad.
