    Hi all

    First time toyota owner. Purchased new 2018 t4r Limited in nautical blue w/out third row seat.

    Only mid sized suv my 130lb rhodesian ridgeback would fit in without going up to xl suv.

    Previosly has 2004 ford exploder that was a money pit after 90k mi.

    Love the new runner. I am a noob when it comes to off road mods, etc

    I am curious as to what others are doing with their 18 limiteds.

    I did see Toyota has a 3" lift kit they offer that was modified specifically for this truck by toyota engineers. Anyone have experience with this lift?

    Trying to decide what mod I want to do first. I would like it to sound a bit tougher and have a bit more power/responsivness down low.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated

    Had some snowfall in northeast here and was driving at night first dusting. Took a corner bit to fast and lost all traction at 35mpg.

    Went over bank that dropped a couple feet. Front left corner hit first. Only damage i see is front fender popped out of fastener in wheel well.

    Taking it in for first 5k service tomorrow and will have a look while on lift.

    I am not please the front end bottomed out at that speed and drop off.

    Perhaps I need better tires and the new lift offered by toyota.
