    Just bought a new TRD Pro 4Runner. Former Jeep Rubicon Unlimited owner. Took a 1500 mile trip for spring break from Colorado through Moab to Grand Canyon back tp Moab and then to Glenwood Springs with family and of course my dog. What a truck! Ran through Rainbow terrace in Moab on the way through to get a feel for things. Absolutely no problem but it's also a fairly easy trail. Highway speaking it couldn't have performed or handled any better. Smooth ride comfortable and lots of room. After several days in Grand Canyon headed back to Moab to Sand flats rec. area. On the way in at the the gate I asked if they thought doing Hell's revenge would be ok. When she saw the TRD badge she said Toyota was here last yaer with theses trucks all covered up for testing purposes. Se we decided to give it a try. Hell's revenge is a pretty difficult trail and the TRD made it through the whole thing unscathed. Very impressed. Skipped some of the extreme obstacles but otherwise a great day off road. Can't wait to go back to Moab for some more fun!! As a former Jeep owner I would have to say the the Rubicon is probably slightly more capable but not by much. Don't listen to the Jeep guys this is an extremely capable off road vehicle right out of the box and the reliability and on road comfort makes it a perfect choice. The only damage I sustained was to the optional chrome tailpipe which I didn't want anyway and I also expected the first time I saw it. I noticed a little late it's a one bolt removal but what the heck you're supposed to beat em up a little anyway? Right?

    Welcome aboard, from another ex-Wrangler owner, a new '15 JKU. Our '16 4R Trail is so much better, both on and off-road. that I still cannot believe it. The Jeep let us down back in the boonies, in grizzly country, and we traded as soon as we got home. - Cheers, Ted
