    Hello. I'm a new one here actually don't even have it in my position yet but can't wait! The dealer has it located and is supposed to be in route and I should have it next week if all goes well. I'm moving from a 2007 Volvo XC90 3.2 front wheel drive and jumping in with both feet to a 2016 4x4 Limited dark gray with black interior. Can't wait to get it! I'm looking at putting the weather tech liners in right away and having the windows tinted all the way around to the legal darkness. I've seen some other mods I might want to do to beef up the bumpers etc but who knows. Right now I'm seeing that a lot of the kits aren't available for the limited trim yet. I just want to keep it safe and working hard for me for years to come.

    Anyone used any of those hitch steps to protect the bumper?

    Can't wait to dig in here and see what everyone is doing with their 4R's.

    I've looked a little at the Huskys online but I keep seeing the Weather Tech talked about so I assumed they were the best. Are the Husky's better?

    I LOVE my Huskys. They stay in place, have bigger grooves to catch the snow and mud, and super easy to clean.

    Hmmmm. So many decisions. I'll have to look at them again. Wish I could go to a store and see them side by side. When you order online it's hard to really know. Thanks for the info. Can't wait to get my 4Runner! Deciding what vehicle to get was not an easy decision but I think I made the right choice!

    I ended up ordering the Husky's I was going to do the WeatherTech's since the prices were pretty close. Then I realized that Autoanything had a special 20% off it wasn't able to be applied to the WeatherTech's but the Husky's were eligible. So since I had heard such good things about both and then this deal
    I just did it. Hope to get my 4Runner Wednesday. Waiting to hear from the dealer on an update. Can't wait to drive it.

    UGH! I'm still waiting! I just talked to the dealer I'm working with he is now able to give me the vin number of my new 4Runner but it is still in Houston. I'm guessing they arrive at the port there from Japan. It's not a special order just a dark gray Limited 4WD with black leather but the one he located from me was still in transit. He hoped it would be here in Dallas yesterday but now it looks like it will be next week.

    I ordered the Husky liners those arrived yesterday and look great I think they will work well in this truck. Fingers crossed it will be here soon. I can't wait to start driving it. I keep looking at all the pics of all of yours and I'm so ready! Hope I'll be able to upgrade the bumpers before to long. I don't go off-road really but if you've ever driven in big city traffic it's good to have a tank! Plus they just look cool! :).

    I'll post pics as soon as I get it!

    I finally got it! :). It's so nice. Picked it up yesterday only had 4 miles on the odo. Called to set an appt for having the Windows darkened on Saturday. The wife wants me to add running boards she has trouble getting in (I told her to just drive her explorer. Lol. ). It looks great and is so fun to drive!




    So much better than what I had. Here is the old and the new.
