    looks like a new front end, possibly same hood. I actually prefer the 05-11 look but that's just me. Looks like a smushed 4 runner front end

    Really interested to see if there are any changes to the interior

    Interesting. I think it was time for a facelift but I'm not sure that's what I would have recommended. I honestly like mine better.

    Going by looks I am glad I bought the 2011 model, still looks good but like the '05-'11 styling better. Some will like this style more of course :)

    We had this same thing happen over at SVRider. There was a youtube video of some dork getting on an SV and riding it straight into a tree. It was posted as a new thread probably a hundred times over 2-3 years

    The other version of this going around is chopped to have the trd option. This looked un-touched.

    same shit as everyone else
    Its the exact same quarter panels and hood. Just different looking grill, head lights and bumper. Pretty much the same exact truck! I bet you will be able to bolt that front end on any 05+ without any mods if you really want to "look" like your keeping up with the times. LOL 3rd gen my ass.
