    Hi I am a new member here and I have been going through a crisis. I am considering trading / selling my Tacoma for a Toyota 4runner? Can anyone please help me in making this decision.

    My current ride - 2013 Tacoma 4x4 4-door 22k miles. It sets in garage and all I do is work and drive work car. I don't even tow anything with it :)

    Why I want a 4-runner because it will make the wifey happier she wants an SUV and seeing as I don't drive the truck I am considering. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Only you know what will work best for your situation. 4-runners are nice, but I love my Taco. If I could have the best of both worlds, she would drive a 4runner, I would be the Taco. She has a Camry and is very happy with it. Happy wife happy life :thumbsup:

    It's honestly your decision OP. If you don't haul very much and can't see the use in a truck, then I would opt for the 4runner as well. I believe the 4runner has an overall luxurious feel compared to the Tacoma. I'm sure whichever you decide, you'll be happy with! :thumbsup:

    One can never have too many light bars.
    Everybody's situation is different. You do you. I will add that you will probably be able to get more than you paid for it with that mileage.

    Sounds like an SUV would be well-suited to your needs. Any particular reason you are only considering the 4runner? There are other choices that might be worth considering depending on intended uses.

    The new 4 runners are mint. If you have no use for truck, then I'd say go for the 4 runner.
    My tacoma is my daily driver. I only use the truck bed for household chores like transporting yard waste, moving some of my power equipment on occasion, etc. I also have the tow package that I've never used. I like having a truck in the household though. My wife drives a new Volvo S60 sedan, which really can't haul anything.

    I started out with a 4runner when I was 16 I have owned three toyotas and just really want to go back to the 4runner. They seem to very expensive though but hopefully I can sell my truck easily.

    Tell her to go buy an SUV if she wants one, and use that tailgate space for your balls
