    After searching for a replacement SUV for the wife. Now remember this was a 6 months process after we got rid of our junk jx35. After test driving, countless SUV's my wife decided on a 4runner. How about that, she does miss some of the luxuries the other vehicles offer but she decided to go with something reliable and keeping it for at least 10 years with no worries leaving her stranded. As her jx35 has left her with dead batteries(for no reason), leaving us stranded in Vegas and having us rent a car back well it was chaos.

    Anyway, she fell in love with it on how it felt and how quiet it was inside. I didn't test drive the car as I didn't want to sway her decision on her car. The only thing she didn't like was the 2 tone softex seats their not offered in a solid color. Sorry, no pics, she was so excited she forgot to take pics of her new ride. The dealer was awesome her sale gal, showed her how to use all the features including the 4x4 with a nice warning under any circumstances not use 4x4 pavement unless you want an expensive repair bill. Way different experience than at the Infiniti dealer, yes we will miss the unlimited donuts, coffee, water, car wash, etc... but we don't expect to be at the dealer service department except for the toyota care for the first 2 years.

    Here are the stats

    -exterior color:Super White
    -interior: Black Graphite (kind of misleading in my opinion)
    -SR5 Premium package
    -Third row seats
    -Shield 3rd row airbags
    here are the items added at port no wiggle room to remove these which sucks again in my opinion wife loved it since it's everything her previous car had;
    -All weather floor liners with cargo area
    -exhaust tip
    -carpet floor mats and cargo (so now we have 2 sets of floor mats) cool i guess
    -roof rack cross bars
    -running boards with chrome strip
    -wheel locks

    We decided to not get their extended warranty from toyota man were they pissed, but because I refused. But at 2.5 k dollars for only 5yrs/ 75k miles or 3.5kdollars for 7yrs/ 100k miles.

    I will post pics soon.

    Just dropped off the 4runner for an opticoat protection (5yr warranty) and clear bra ( half hoor, half fenders, front bumpe, grill, and side mirrors. Also ordered gobi ladder, just waiting for a call from from gobi to setup patmpay. Odd way to place an order.

    Ya, they wig out when you don't buy into their warranty. Also, couldn't believe we found our own financing at 1.5% for our '16.
