    Hello, bought a brand new 2021 4runner TRD off road premium a few weeks ago, and I'm loving it so far. Its everything my old Subaru outback could never be (except for fuel efficient :)). Really excited to be joining such a community of 4r enthusiasts!

    Already looking too far into these forums, ive got quite a few things im interested in so far :)

    Yeah we go really lucky, we drove around all the dealerships in our area, and the earliest we would be able to get one would be about a month and a half later. Luckily we thought to recheck one of the dealerships the next morning and it turned out that someone backed out of their reservation, and we were able to reserve it, and then pick it up just a week later :D

    Welcome! Got a 15’ outback as well, love the fuel efficiency, but you’re right, it just can’t go where the 4runner can. Plus it’s just way funnier to drive!

    I got an Outback too but since it's the Turbo it's actually more fun to drive.....on road.

    Offroad = no contest :)

    Hey I'm from Minnesota and looking to get into off-roading. Where would you recommend I start out in the Minnesota/Wisconsin area? I know about the Iron Range up in Northern MN but I'm a little intimidated lol.

    Not sure where you're at in Minn., but if you look around in northern Minn. I've seen lots of trails leading off to who knows where around Bena, some look really swampy though. So if you're just getting into off roading don't get too aggressive at first break into it slowly, if you have a friend that has another vehicle, take them along.. the strength in numbers thing, and if someone gets 'stuck', hopefully the other guy didn't. Just look around, ask the local authorities about where you can go for offroad stuff, they should be able to help you out as far as the laws go. I'm coming up to Lake Winnie fishing on the 18th, I'll look around there for more trails and stuff.
