Said "Raptor", and it's above the Tacoma and FJ Cruiser.

It could be that the Runner has just a little more wheelbase which makes it more stable than the FJ but the Taco has just a bit too much wheelbase. I would love a new runner but it is out of my price range new.

Considering it references the 4Runner Trail Edition which has the KDSS option, locking rear diff, A-Trac(yes I said it), Crawl Control and Multi Terrain Select. It also has the same ground clearance as the Tacoma OR and FJ Cruiser, a slight less of a approach angle and departure angle.

The 4Runner Trail is a pretty BAMF compared to the other currently offered 4x4 vehicles.

Showroom floor capability doesn't mean much in the offroad world...

They sure blew it on the FJ. Doesn't have the same fatness the 4Runner has but has all the useful goodies (except KDSS, but meh...doesn't need it) and one more off the showroom floor that's particularly key: Factory sliders that are actually sliders.

They got #1 right though. But I'm not paying that kind of money for a Chrysler product that'll become an unreliable shitpile after 80k miles.

Everything is a compromise. Personally, I'd take a mid-90s LX450 over any of that stuff they mention. You can't buy 'em any more, but the Fj80 platform with a luxury interior, solid front axle, and front/rear diff locks from factory made a FORMIDABLE vehicle.

I'm hoping to score one one day with reasonably low (100kish) miles that I can turn into a trail spa.

The point is you have a versatile vehicle. He has a specialist.

Want to see someone with a home-brewed tube buggy make his Rubicon look silly?

I'm guessing the Jeep won because of the solid axles, locking front and rear diffs and electronic disconnecting sway bar.
