What would you do?

I recently bought a 2010 Tacoma with the TRD Sport Package. I bought it for my wife actually, but I have been driving it around for a few days while she is out of town. I am really diggin' this truck.

Now here is my dilemma. I started to get the mod bug, and I was going to start modifying my 04 4Runner, but after the last few days I am not sure if I don't want to do some things to the Tacoma.

I only really want to spend the money on one of the vehicles, and on top of that I want to keep one close to stock for daily driving.

Now I am sure it is going to be hard to get some unbiased opinions on a Tacoma forum, but I thought I would ask anyway.

What do you think?

You drove the Taco and created an account here on TW...that's gonna be a tough one. Personally though, I'd probably mod the vehicle that's closest to being paid off and closest out of warranty. But the longer you hang around here, the more likely you'll wanna do up that Taco...you've been warned.

Depends on the mods you want to do. As someone already mentioned, is the 4Runner almost out of warranty? If it is, and you want to lift, turn it into a trail beast, etc then mod the 4Runner.

However, since you want to keep a vehicle stock for daily driving, then it would make more sense to mod the Taco instead since the 4Runner would also be better to drive the family around with.

4runner is a better family vehicle, and if its the v8, it'll be a better tow vehicle. theres a good amount of aftermarket support for 2nd gen tacomas, idk if its the same for 4th gen runners.


is buying a first gen pickup/runner (84-89) out of the picture?
