    Thanks! It's a 2011 Sr5 and I love the 4runner. I've joked with her about selling my truck and buying a trail edition. I had to shake my head when we bought the 4runner and I saw what it came with, Mechanical 4wd shifter, downhill assist, trac, Bluetooth player and all this in the base 4runner. My sport felt kinda lame after that. We also have the 3rd row and haven't gotten a complaints from anyone about sitting back there. The 4runner will get a mod here and there but my truck will be the main money pit.

    So I'm thinking about trading in the Tacoma and I'm also gonna use my motorcycle for down..but do any of you 5th gen's think its worth it to trade in a 2010 Tacoma SR5 and a 2008 buell for a 2013 4runner? and just out of curiosity how much did ya'll pay for your TE's. Also does the 4runner have the timing chain or the timing belt?...and what all do you miss about your tacoma's?

    Only do it if you can't live without one. Go Drive a trail at dealer and learn more about all the features. I'd only consider it for a trail edition. Personally like the looks, nav off road options more. I paid about 38 for our 2011 trail with 20k miles, with 10yr 100k plus everything warranty. Love the 4 runner to death. Too nice for us to beat the shit out of right now offroad. However, I couldn't be without my 2003 tacoma so we got both. Parting from your truck for one is only a decision you can make but I say YES;)

    I parted with my 2011 ORTRD for a 12 TE and love it. I needed dry hauling space and didn't want the cap. I miss the Taco sometimes for the bed and it had a little quicker feel about it. The TE is awesome though and highly capable.

    That's sweet man. Congrats. Maybe you can find a used Tacoma or go my route and try and convince you wife she needs a truck ;) Let see a pic of you TE. I sometimes wish we would have gone silver on ours.

    Nice!! The wife and I love our 2011 4Runner. Does great in snow, ice, sand, and dirt. No complaints! I did add heated seats and a Satoshi grill. Great things here:

    The backup camera mod will be my next one.

    No, still the Limited, TE or SR5. Judging by the pic I'd go he went with an SR5. Limited come with 20" rims.

    i believe premium is new for 2012. its an upgraded sr5 package. comes with leather, sunroof, and navigation. definately worth it cause i didnt want a limited (price) and my girl only was interested in leather seats.

    My fiances 4runner is a 2010 with some sort of premium package. Leather, heated seats, and sunroof.

    I think it is interesting how Toyota even lists a sunroof in any of their "upgrade packages". You will not find a 2010+ without a sunroof....anywhere...with or without the "premium" package!
