except maybe a front locker
Getting the SR5 then doing the upgrades would almost be as expensive. Definitely so if you add a air locker and compressor. KDSS a con if you upgrade the suspension? On the contrary it will make it better. You can upgrade the suspension and still maintain the effectiveness of the KDSS. All KDSS does is hydraulically actuate the sway bar for increased travel (read disconnect. Get the rig off the ground, remove tires, strap the sway bar to a fixed point so it doesn't move, disconnect UCA, remove old coilover, add new coil over, reattach UCA, remove strap from sway bar and drive off.
Take a look here to see how KDSS works.
The 4Runner is built on the Prado 150 frame. What you see in the video's is essentially the 4Runner Trail Edition's KDSS at work.
