Picked up a 2016 4runner Trail edition.
Man it was a chore to get this and for the price I wanted to spend. Had a few dealerships laugh at me. @Steve helped me out with info which really helped me nail down a price...thank you again sir much appreciated. They were saying g the guy was in trouble for selling so low. Probably to make me feel good about the price. Other dealerships wouldn't touch the price so I believe I got great deal.

Anyway we test drove a limited just to see how the inside was . I wasn't impressed with the limited interior. However the trail has a nicer interior and dash imo. We didn't want the premium because I didn't want a sunroof. Would have liked the side mirrors indicators.

This is the wifese vehicle I'm hoping she gets comfortable enough to wheel it a Lil and engage that locker. After seeing the pinstripes on my jeep, she doest want to mess it up haha. In due time in due time.

Kind of disappointed in the street tires. It needs some beef and those running boards need to go in place of some sliders. Oh and a 0408 OB badge!
Anyway looks great next to the jeep

Thank you so much for the kind words! And congratulations on getting the deal done. You guys are gonna really enjoy the 4Runner.

I swapped out the OEM tires the day after I bought mine, and put on BF Goodrich T/A KO2 275/70-17 tires. And I got mine without the running board, and have a set of C4 Fabrication rock sliders on order.

Congrats on the Wife's New 4Runner! If the 5th gen is anything like the 4th gen. You have to exercise the 4WD once a month. If you don't, it'll freeze up on you.

Nice, congrats! My coworker just got a 2015 4R SR5, they are good looking rigs! And I'm jealous of the huge range of aftermarket parts availabile to the 4R and taco, compared to my Colorado.

I will say I HATE the texture of the headliner in my coworkers 4R though
Lol
