    I picked up my first ever 4Runner about a week ago, I spent about two months going back and forth between the 4Runner and the fj and think i made the best choice, I love the vehicle so far.
    Its a 2017 TRD offroad in white. Now the fun part getting customized. And thanks to all who unbeknown to them for all their knowledge and info that helped to make the decisionIMG_0711.jpg

    I also considered the FJ for several years. When it came time to purchase I went with the 4R and couldn't be happier. You made the best choice!

    Welcome aboard. You have a real beauty there so treat her carefully and be sure to keep the rubber side down. I looked at an FJ when I wanted a new 4x4 to replace my Mitsu Outlander but just could not take the styling or the weird rear doors. Bought a Jeep instead. Big mistake!. Finally got smart. - Ted

    Palerider: Forgetting the Jeeps and Scout cars I drove in the Canadian Army, the list of 4x4s I've owned starts with a brand new '64 Int'l Scout followed by '69 Land Rover, '75 LR, '83 Chev Blazer II, 89 Isuzu Trooper, '96 Jeep Cherokee, '08 Mitsu Outlander, '14 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk, '15 Jeep Wrangler Altitude, and far and away the best of all, '16 4R Trail . I peed away a lot of $$ on cars too! - Cheers, Ted

    The Trooper was a nice rig but the wife drove it most of the time as she was a visiting nurse and had to see many patients up in mountainous country in winter. The Trooper was hell on front tires though, as it did not have unlocking hubs, but a great rig for hunting in the back country. - Ted
