New guy here, thought to introduce myself. I'm Jon, from Wichita, KS and picked up an '09 4x4 TRD Off-Road loaded to the gills last July. It even has leather -- an option I wasn't aware. My first vehicle out of high school was an '87 4Runner my dad and I cleaned up. Fast forward through about 6 or 7 imports and fun cars, and I'm back to having a 4x4. I guess it's part of growing up. I still have my '97 Eclipse... ah well.
My main problem with the 4Runner was the lack of torque.. the 22RE was bulletproof, but damn..nothing like being stuck in mud and frustrated due to lack of being able to pull myself out. Eh, maybe it was just my being a dumb high schooler.
I'm looking forward to toss some money at my Tacoma in the next few years. I definitely want to differentiate myself from the others, so I'm always welcoming suggestions!!
