    Re-post, and no it's not. That's just a photochop from a 4runner forum, would be pretty cool though.

    I agree, those headlights kind of remind me of that mitsubishi raider (dakota clone).

    I wouldn't be surprised if the 3rd gen took on that same front end.

    I really hope that they don't make the 3rd gen Tacoma as boxy as the fifth gen 4Runner. Also the tail lights on the new 4Runners look awful. My $0.02

    yea.. but everyone thought the 2005 was ugly (and over sized) when it came out too.
    took me years to give in.. still don't understand the wheel arch shape.

    Yea I don't like it. Hope that is far off from the real thing. That's too much change, except the front end looks okay. I don't like the cheap looking chrome piece on the grill though.
