Toyota 4Runner Overland Ready; end of March/April in Santiago, Chile

The car is in perfect condition, very clean inside-out, low kilometres, fully serviced (can provide all paperwork) with very good, almost new, all-terrain tires and full-size spare wheel! Sleeping platform is built inside, but we kept back seats so it can easily accommodate 5 people if needed. We also mounted solar panel on the roof which is connected to spare battery – you can stay off-grid for many days! We also added kill-switch which cuts off fuel pump so it's impossible to start the car without a special key. Hidden compartment for your valuables, camping gear and a lot of extras.

About the car:
- Toyota 4Runner SR5 2001 3.4 V6, petrol;
- fully working 4x4, transfer box H2, H4, L4;
- it is a facelift model so diff lock was replaced with a traction control;
- automatic gearbox with an overdrive;
- 138.000 km estimated at the end of our trip
- factory tinted windows;
- Chilean plated (registered on our name), all paperwork up-to-date;
- proper all-terrain tires + full-size spare tire;
- fuel consumption: 10-15 l / 100 km (depends on terrain and an altitude);
- gray metallic;
- leather interior (which is very easy to keep clean in a dusty environment);
- cruise control;
- moonroof;
- 5 seats (we've kept back seats);
- climate control, very good operation;
- radio CD player + FM transmitters which reads SD cards, USB and AUX;
- alarm;
- electric windows including the one on the back gate;
- electric mirrors;
- airbags (driver and passenger);
- 3 keys (2 spares) and 1 remote.

Rig mods:
- 100Watt SOLAR PANEL paired with 100Ah battery;
- 100Ah battery works with 200Watt power inverter (cables are hidden underneath the carpets,** power box is underneath a passenger seat) – you can easily charge your laptops, tablets, camera* batteries, phones and everything you need;
- folding sleeping platform (upholstered), a lot of space underneath;
- platform doors turn into small tables;
- lights above tables;
- 2 power terminals for tire inflator(on the back of sleeping platform) – connected to spare battery, so you don't need to worry about draining car battery;
- one of the interior lights is red so you can keep it low key while wild camping;
- 4 spot lights mounted at the front of the car (one has a crack on the glass, but still working).

Anti-theft extras:
- fuel pump kill switch;
- hidden compartment with secure vault [safe] (PIN number + keys) for your valuables;
- anti-theft steering wheel bar with a key;
- alarm with a hidden switch.

Camping goodies:

- 4 plates, 2 bowls, small kettle, pan, pot, cutlery, thermal cup, whisk, cork screw/ opener,
2 cutting boards (smaller and bigger);
- vacuum flask;
- fishing rod with accessories.

Other extras:
- tire inflator;
- tow rope;
- triangle;
- fire extinguisher;
- 2 high-vis jackets;
- first-aid kit;
- jump leads;
- 2 jerrycans (20, 25 l);
- saw;
- recovery spade;
- 2 window sun covers;
- basic tools + original Toyota tools;
- Toyota bottle jack;
- spare engine oil (1,5 l), we bought it just in case if the car was using oil but we never had to open it to top up!;
- pressure gauge.

The car has received*full service and was converted recently to be fully overland ready..
Below is the list of what was done at 107653km:
- timing belt and water pump (next change need to be done at 240k!), Toyota has the 5VZ-FE engine which is a non-interference like no other 4x4 cars with a timing belt;
- antifreeze coolant (-20C);
- engine oil + filter;
- front and rear diff oil;
- sparkplugs;
- 2x tires;
- fuel filter;
- air filter;
- gearbox oil;
- belts for alternator and power steering pump;
- cleaned MAF sensor.

At around 117000km:
- engine oil + filter;
- air filter;
- front and rear drop link bushings.

At around 124000km:
- front brake pads;
- anti-roll-bar bushings.
At around 130.000:
- oil and oil filter change
- 4x new BF Goodrich All Terrain tyres - 265-75-16.
We have kept all receipts for parts.

Why Toyota 4 Runner?
Because it is the car that you will find at every corner in South America! It also shares many parts with Land Cruiser and Hilux. Toyota is literally everywhere and it is the most popular brand so it's very easy to find parts or mechanic who knows them. The other thing is, it will take you where ever you want. Indestructible and reliable!

Where: Santiago de Chile
When: end of March 2017

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
