    I'm basically at my end game on this one. The only thing it's lacking is lockers and a possible re-gear. I haven't really lacked without the lockers, but I do want them. I ordered a set and after 3 months and no updates the guy basically ghosted me so that was fun disputing the 3k in charges.

    I have a sport hood that im about to sand and wrap and it will look even dumber, so that's fun.

    I have the 12500. Mainly because they are the exact same size and I thought just having a heavier weight winch would put less stress on the winch. Not because I plan on pulling 12,500 lbs.

    That is not a bad line of thinking honestly.

    Don’t have room in my driveway, so as soon as my Tacoma comes, I’m going to be shipping this to my dad.

    There is too much work in the suspension to trade it in, and since Carfax is garbage and there are two reported accidents, which cost less than 1000 bucks to repair some bumper trim both times, even in California the trade in value for this thing is abysmal.

    No point in giving the car dealer a gift and I don’t have patience for private sales.

    That is one clean 4runner. I bet if you private sale it would be gone quick.

    It’s been in Colorado for almost 7 years, so it’s not as clean as a Cali truck.

    I’m looking forward to my Taco being rust free.

    I know this was an older post, but I couldn't help but reply when I read it. I had the exact opposite experience. My 2017 Taco lived in California for 5 years and the frame had horrific rust. My daughter's '09 Taco had significant rust from living in California, and the rust stopped spreading when she moved here to Colorado. Now that I'm living in Colorado, I'm far less worried about rust on my new 4Runner than I was in California. I suppose it depends on where in the state you live...I was about 2 miles (the way the crow flies) from the ocean. Plenty of salt air.
