    Look at the bright side your bank account wouldn't be as sexy that's for sure but that is a good looking runner.

    If my crap Ranger wasn't a Ford fail I would have waited until about now to buy a new car and I probably would have gone with the Runner instead of the Taco.

    More power, smaller wheelbase, more interior space and more offroad functions.

    It's got some cool electronic goodies but for me I'm 100% happy with my Taco and wouldn't trade it for the runner even if it were a straight trade.

    yep, more and more electronics so the driver doesnt have to think as much.

    i'd trade my truck for a 3rd gen 4runner of similar trim (3.4, 5mt, elocker)

    only other 4runner i'd get is a sfa first gen, but that'd be a trail rig and not a dd like my tacoma.

    I like mine a lot. Really like it!!!

    One point on the Trail Edition 4Runner was the KDSS, the ability to disconnect the swaybar is nice for articulation.

    The 4Runner has a fully boxed ladder frame (like the FJ Cruiser). The frame railes already have the nuts in frame for attaching rock sliders and the stock skid plates on it are fairly decent. The gas tank gets a full steel skid as well as the hydraulics for the KDSS.

    My only gripe with it is if Toyota has a Trial Edition anything, put some decent meats on it not the crappy Dunlop's

    Some figures.

    Tacoma:
    Approach/Departure angle: 35/26
    Ground clearance(4.0 Accesscab/Doublecab 4x4): 9.3"

    FJ Cruiser:
    Approach/Departure angle: 34/31
    Ground clearance: 9.6"

    4Runner Trail Edition:
    Approach/Departure angle: 33/26
    Ground clearance: 9.6"

    More power-maybe so, but I've got gears on my side
    Smaller wheelbase- nope sure doesn't, actually I think it is the same
    More interior space-maybe so, but I've got more bed space
    More offroad functions- more stuff to fail

    and to think, mine is less than half the cost of the 4runner

    Wheelbase is smaller. The Tacoma has a 127.4 inch wheelbase while the 4 runner has a 109.8 inch wheelbase. Sure the bed space comes in handy when you use it but I never use it unless I put my quad back there and even then I will be throwing it on a trailer soon. If stuff fails jsut take it in and have it taken care of.
