    Hello,

    After long wait (family and kids needs), over the weekend, I got my 4Runner: 2018 TRD Off-road.
    You know is a good move when everyone in the family loves it and when the BOSS states "we should have done it earlier" :).
    Looking forward to learn as much as possible about it. BTW, I have to do something about "nose dive" during braking.

    As you can see from this picture we are a Toyota family :)

    Cheers,
    Todi

    Congrats! The nose dive is really the #1 (maybe only) complaint on these rigs. Only way to help is swap out the shocks to something a little stiffer. Bilstein 5100's seem to do the trick, plus the 5100's give you the option of lifting up the nose to level out the rig as well.
