    How comparable is the power, off-road performance?
    I like the traction control of the newer second generation.

    I would appreciate input from people that frequent the 2nd generation forum.

    I haven't owned a first gen but the 4.0 puts out similar numbers as a s/c 3.4l under basic trd setup.

    4.0:
    4.0-liter DOHC 24-Valve V6 with VVT-i
    236 hp @ 5200 rpm
    266 lb.-ft. @ 4000 rpm

    3.0-liter DOHC EFI V6, 24-valve cast iron block with aluminum alloy head
    190hp @ 4800 rpm
    220lb-ft @ 3600rpm

    Supercharged 3.0: 190 hp (140 kW) to 251 hp (187 kW).


    So supercharged it puts out a little over a stock 4.0 (couldn't find torque value right now). However a supercharged 4.0: 304 hp (227 kW) and 334 lb·ft (453 N·m)

    That's also just stock TRD setups. Superwerty was pushing what, 420hp with TRD blower and URD accessories on the 4.0...

    Power wise, the 4.0 is superior. The 3.4 is no slouch though.

    Off road performance... well depends. You can get a rear locker on both gens. The first gen is smaller which is better for trails, stiffer and stronger frame, again good. The second gens are absolute beasts though with a good upgraded supsension, armor, ect. Basically it's near a wash if you don't mind electronic gismos controlling stuff.

    If it's a daily driver with off-road weekend warrior stuff and the cash isn't an object... the second gens are much 'nicer' on a day to day basis imo.

    what second gen are you talking about? Here second gen is 05+ but on most other sites 2nd gen is the 01-04. I have the "2nd gen" (01-04) s/c on my 2000

    Toyota calls the 97 to 04's "FIrst gen" as the drive components are mostly the same. Same engines, tranny, frame, etc.
