    does anyone know if the dealer can work with me about the pointless 20" wheels that come with the limited trim. ill take the wheels from a SR5. they have plenty of those. who would ever expect to go offroad with wheels that big? I'm not really a fan of the grandpa styling cues of the limited trim either but I really don't wanna make the mistake of not getting the dual climate control and upgraded everything in the interior.

    also it looks like I can fit 33" tires on stock suspension. I don't wanna lift it but I do wanna put on a plate bumper and winch. will stiffer springs do the job? I should probably mention I'm big into overlanding and that is a large portion of why I want a 4runner.

    Most dealers would swap the 20 inch wheels no cost. Where are you located? I have a SR5 for sale.

    I'm in yelm Washington. I am tempted to upgrade to the 17" TRD wheels toyota has on their website. I hope that price includes tires

    Fuck yo' overlanding
    33s" are gonna be a tight fit, you'll get some rub. I imagine most dealers will work with ya before you sign the papers... after, not so much. You will get some sag with a bumper and winch, but I'm not personally familiar with a non- lift coil that offsets the sag of a bumper but provides only factory height. I suppose you could get adjustable coil overs and adjust for height that way, but that's a bit beyond what I have personal experience with (my suspension upgrade knowledge is based on lifted stuff).

    so a 2" lift seems like what I will need. I didn't realize a 2" lift is not very expensive. any recommendations on kits? Saturday morning ill test drive at the dealer that Costco recommended. ive been in contact with them and there is a 5 passenger and a 7 passenger there. I don't need 7 passenger seating.

    so I sat in the limited wasn't that impressed. then I saw a used 2016 with all the shit id wanna do. they also had a 2016 TRD pro in the tan color I wanted but it was 10k more than what I got. I bought a 2016 sr5 with the TRD wheels, big tires, aftermarket coilover lift, and an arb rack and some lights. I don't have the interior I wanted but I'm also not filthy rich. I saved a lot of money this way. don't know how to post pics without a mouse.
