    Yeah for sure if you liked the other show. It takes about 2 shows and you'll be hooked. A lot of the same people in the 2 shows

    I took the SR5 over some joints in the road, followed by a OR. The biggest thing I noticed was how the OR handled the joint. Only one bump was felt, whereas the SR5 had some resonance or pogo after the initial contact with the joint. So that could be the case

    My sister has a Ridgeline and she loves it. My wife thought she wanted one too so I had her drive my sister's RL and also had her drive a Tacoma....she chose the Taco. I actually preferred the look of the first gen Ridgeline, the 2nd gen looks like a minivan with the back 1/2 cut off. The '21 refresh looks better but still not able to pass for a truck. Dealer close to me has a black one with the bronze wheels and the "HPD" decals.....looks like a teenager, who got a Ridgeline passed-down, trying to make it look tougher....:p

    I hear that, so glad Tacomas are subtle.

    A Tacoma would look "tougher" than a Ridgeline even if it were painted pink........:rofl:

    My '17 OR was relatively absorbent over bumps and slightly 'boaty' on undulations with camping gears loadouts before the inevitable suspension mods. Leaving it in stock form seems to be just a suggestion from your wallet.
