First gen owner for 80,000 miles. Probably won't ever buy another car. Thanks to this forum and some bloody knuckles my more mechanically inclined friend and I have undertaken many repairs and even a few mods on my trusty 99. Hopefully I can help people out when appropriate but mainly here for nerding out on 1st gen Rav4s. Or the "Rat4" in my case due to my Rav's crusty exterior. Hello all.
