    Hello, my good people..!! Nice to meet you all, my name is Mauricio and I'm from South Florida.
    The greater Fort Lauderdale area to be more specific.

    Just came across, this forum, but I'm a regular on Expedition Portal & Tacoma World. I recently sold my beloved 2014 Tacoma TRD Off-Road and will be building my New 2016 Toyota 4Runner Trail.

    Here is a picture of my old Tacoma and the new 4Runner.

    Thanks @jester243 I agree, it's a trend. LOL..!! You know to be honest, the 4Runner is light years ahead of the Tacoma. If you 100% don't need a Pick Up and are undecided, the 4Runner should be the choice.

    that's what drove me to switch, I just don't need a truck bed like I did 9 years ago, but I had a greater need for a larger interior and still 4x4

    Welcome aboard. Been in Florida many times in my day, yacht racing across to the Bahamas, visiting yacht builders, and visiting my folks when they wintered in New Smyrna. That was many, many moons ago, but I still have fond memories. Drive safe, Ted

    Thank you, here's the build thread on the Taco. The Runner will be full ExPo build as well.

    Well that's a damn good start man, love those lightforces! After I make these 315's fit and work out all the rub spots, we will have to go! I have a regear, some maint, and a LSD to work with ATRAC planned soon though:)
