After 10 years I was finally able to right a wrong when I sold my 3rd gen 4Runner. Picked up this 4th gen about a month ago. Only 79k on the clock. Already ordered a set of 5100s with plans to delete the XREAS system. Also ordered a Limited, color-matched, grill to cut down on the chrome.

the HDJ81 Now with new 35" K02's. This has been the perfect time to take it out into deep spots in the cascades where nobody else is at. Got the bed all set up in the rear for camping too! :thumbup:

^ Now THAT is some smart social distancing! Our 1996 TLC was definitely the sturdiest, but also most comfortable vehicle we've owned.

Looks like fun and the location is awesome, too. No mountainous locale down where I am. Mostly pine woods but some of the federal land has good back roads to run when it's not some form of hunting season.

^ locally all our backroads have been gated and turned into fire roads. Gotta drive a bit for the fun stuff.

Well I bought it new it new in September 2010. I modified it and drove it for about 3 1/2 years and then gave it to my 16 year old to drive. He drove it for the past 6 1/2 years. He just graduated from college and I bought him a new car. I took the truck back and was going to sell it but then realized how much I missed having this great truck. It's been maintained meticulously and the only things that have been replaced are the front wheel bearings, clock spring, and one of the front CV boots. I decided to freshen it up a little bit and keep it for a while. It only has 112k miles.

Here is what it looked like when I got it back from my son


I did a full paint correction and coating with CSL and ExoV4, I replaced the front grill. headlights, and taillights. I had a PDR company remove a slight dent from the tailgate. I removed the bedside decals and foglight lamin-x. Lastly, I changed out the wheels for some bronze rotiform six OR's.

Here is how she sits today.

Looks great. If I ever found a well priced 2012-2015 Tacoma I'd be very tempted. It's a great platform with a huge aftermarket and I like the 4.0.

Also, Cruser Gear is giving away another rig. Every dollar you spend with them is 1 ticket. No affiliation but I'll for sure be buying a few things to take my shot.

Picked up an Army Green last week, its my wife's ride, it replaced the 2019 STi, she loves the color and everything about it, my only issue is that exhaust, it sounds horrible.

Think just going to swap in standard exhaust keep the side exit, the drone at certain speed make it sound like a Minivan with broken exhaust.
