    2023 TRD Off Road Preumium
    The first one was a 92 that I bought new and had for 15 years until the transmission went out. No independent shop could fix it. I can't remember exactly but I think I just didn't want to spend the money to have a dealer do it. So I sold it for parts to a customer of mine that sells off road vehicle parts. He came and towed it away on a flat bed and damned if he didn't have it running that same week. He told me it became his daily driver!

    So now I'm a few years older and trying to get back into camping and wilderness exploring. I just got a 2023 TRD Off Road Premium that I bought sight unseen because that's what you need to do these days with the higher end models because of the chip shortage. It was "in transit" to the dealer and I jumped on it and took delivery last Saturday!

    I had kept my 92 4Runner pretty much stock other than adding kayak racks and I'm not planning on adding anything significant to the new one at this time. I got the black TRD wheels and bigger tires as an option along with a 2" leveler / lift so I think I'm good with that. Probably going to add a ladder since I got the TRD Pro roof rack. Looking forward to seeing what this thing can do off road!

    Very nice! Any details on the "bigger tires & 2" leveler / lift"?
