    Some Yota doing what Yotas do. Good watch. Might learn something... Shows you dont need to be the biggest badest Yota on the block to have fun.

    Love the XO vids, those guys turned me into getting back out in a Yota, lol...

    Got to meet Clay, Kurt and Paul at Expo East last year, great great guys. Also met Mario with A/T and
    eventually got to shake hands with Scott Brady as well.

    On a newbie 4Runner thought, if one were seeking used and could go as high as 25K cash for a vehicle, would a 4th Gen be a better used deal over a 5th, or should I go further back and seek a 3rd Gen.

    My dream used T4R would be a 5th Gen TE in Silver but they are rare as hens teeth in WNC it seems.

    I love my 3rd gen. Easy to work and parts at cheap and easy to get. Most 3rd Gen 4Runners and 1st Gen Tacoma use same parts. I think the biggest thing for me would be... Wider body style and V8 capability. I personally would love to own 4th gen for functionality and 5th gen for looks :)

    I'm feeling the V8 urge.
