    Get on topic people. We left off at how the Baja rides better than anything you can build yourself.

    My buddy blew his 8.0 on his 07. He tried to show off because I had a Ranger at the time. He ended up getting hung up by the super low cross member on a downhill section. He hit the locker but he didn't let it lock. Next thing you know he smashes on the throttle in reverse and all you hear is ca crack. It was funny watching the driveshaft spin while the tires did nothing.

    If the Baja has everything that you want for close to same cost at the end of all the mods, get it. You also have to factor in your time. If my truck came with a better set of wheels and tires and a better stereo than I wouldn't be shopping for better wheels and tires and a better stereo. Know what I mean? Just take off the hideous sticker. :D

    From what I've seen, it looks like prices are starting to come down on these and making more sense. If I were in the market and could get one 36-37 incl TTL, I'd probably do it.

    Buuuuut, no DCLB so SUCK IT whommmmp whommmmmmmmp

    wouldn't having an extra 1-1/2' of wheel base kind of be pointless in a model "designed" for offroad use?

    at least they got that part right IMHO.

    WHen mine's paid off, trading it in for a 4runner.

    Honestly OP, it all comes down to this, are you going to offroad your vehicle? Yes? Do you want to do it now and then probably spend more money later, replacing the suspension that you just spent an extra 5k on. Or do you want to buy the truck, do some light offroading, DO YOUR RESEARCH, and then buy the suspension you think you need(or want). For 5k I can long travel (front or back, not both) my truck with some Kings on there and be pretty happy. Or I can buy a TRD O/R and get the Icon stage 6 suspension package (for roughly 5k) and install it myself, learn a little something about my truck, and have a bitchin' suspension.

    It all comes down to what YOU want to do. Alot of sheeple these days just want to buy something, IE FORD RAPTOR, and be able to go jump it at Pismo like Jberry and be just fine.

    I would love one of those but they are pricey.

    Yea, but I'm gonna start doing double/triple payments and try to have it paid off in a year, then trade it in or sell it (whichever i can get more for) and use it towards a new/newish gen 4runner. I really like the way the new models look and the trail edition has some interesting toys in it that could be fun.

    I would get a later 4th gen V8 4wd but they still want 30 for those.
