    The 4runner approach and departure is better then the Taco. Camping wise...it's a personal preference. You want bed or not a bed. I love 4runner more then the Tacoma and it is the daily. I don't have much of a need for a truck now since I moved from the field to project management. Overall the 4Runner feels and drives better then my taco by a big margin imo.

    Question for you about the King rear shocks you have with those Dobinson coils, are they the standard off the shelf extended Kings or are they the increased 2-3 lift versions?

    It's the extended lift type up to 2" mainly for my kdss not over extended but now I have the kdss spacers so I'm not worried even with 3" lift.

    every time I see a pic of yours or some of the other 5th gens in here, it makes me want to look harder for the right deal for me to get one of these.

    I test drove a '19 TRD OR at a local used car lot. During the test drive, it took constant correction to make it go straight-ish plus a ton of rattles and squeaks. Not a typical 4runner, that was for sure. I got on a gravel road and tried the locker, it only engaged once during 5 attempts. After all of that, I just walked away. ( besides the $37K price tag"
