    Again! Right by each other! Haha, I was fishing Indian Creek last week! I have a cabin in Markleeville and we try to spend as much time as we can up there driving some of the forgotten roads. We will have to connect and do some trails up there.

    have u found that the 4runner and tacomas are pretty well matched on the trail? i guess that depends on gear, but have been curious if one is superior to the other in 4x4 performance.

    I would say they are pretty equal as well. Depending on which wheelbase of Tacoma you're comparing to, the 4runner can turn tighter and will be a little more maneuverable on the trail. On the 4th gen 4runners, you can put the T-case in 4Lo but leave the center diff unlocked so there's no binding when turning and you can turn much tighter than a taco. Break-over angle will be a little better on the 4runner if you're comparing to a DC tacoma.

    This video shows they both do pretty well even though the more built Jeeps obviously are better in these conditions. Also looks like the 4runner guy decided to pull out as he was beating the crap out of his $40K plus vehicle. The Tacoma soldiered/slammed on.

    @Watt maker. Pretty much nailed it.

    I think the 4runner might have a slight advantage in stock form due to the shorter wheelbase. And, I think the 4runner comes with a size larger tires (i could be wrong)

    On the other hand, for higher speed cruising on gravel and dirt roads, the Tacoma's longer wheelbase could be an advantage.

    An not just the shorter wheelbase. The weight distribution is huge as far as capability off road with the 4. Dry, mud, whatever.. For example, in Winter conditions, the 4 is like a snow machine.

    2018 TRD Off Road Super White
    LED Interior, anytime LED driving lights, Red 3rd Brake light
    I agree but having owned 2 FJ's, 1 Tacoma A/C, and now 4Runner TRD ORP I have to say FJ was/is the better of the 3 Off road & snow:crapstorm:, 4Runner 2nd & Tacoma 3rd. Granted they ALL are Toyota's and VERY capable But Tacoma in snow was worst, due to light ass end. FJ barely had to put in 4x4 because Traction Control took care of most of the conditions.

    Well the 4 is the same chassis as the FJ. Toyota dropped the ball on the FJ IMO
