    Just bought this over the weekend and I am picking it up today.. 2012 4x4 SR5 Premium Package w/3rd Row Leather Seat. I needed a family vehicle suitable for road trips, pulling an older 1,000 lb Coleman pop-up, general car camping, and exploring the deserts and mountains of Southern California and beyond. All signs led me to 4runner and I'm pretty stoked... although I am going to have to do something about the clearance on this one eventually. Seems they built some of them as low riders ;).

    New to the 4runner community but I have some experience with doing my own mild build on a Jeep Grand Cherokee (ZJ) in the past and I look forward to learning more about these things. Pic's from the dealership. More in its natural setting to come. Thanks for having me. I look forward to sharing the joys and pains of ownership with everyone.

    None. Bone Stock. EXCEPT: Brushguard, tow hitch, both welded to the frame. It's good to have friends and a fully equipped garage!
    My middle daughter, Arwen (yeah, I'm an LOTR geek), was stationed at Camp Pendleton for a few years. Spent a year "over there", and then returned. She loved to take my pickup, which I had loaned her for her time there, and go to O'Side to party with her friends.

    Small world, isn't it?

    Welcome from Wisconsin! Oceanside was the main stop when boredom set in! I was stationed at Pendleton in the later 70's, loved running around that town.
