    Things with stuff, but nothing much
    Hey, just joined up. Got a '14 TE yesterday from a dealer in Pittsburg, PA after wanting a 4R for probably most of my adult life. The cost, frankly, was the motivating factor for me to not ever get one - but I finally figured, what the heck, that's why I work.

    Anyway, I've had a few Tacos and an Xterra over the past few years, and do some light off-roading, general dirt road exploring, and the like. I intend to use the 4R for exploring Appalachian Ohio where I live, and for road trips.

    I have a small lift coming, already got some Weathertechs, got an appointment for window tint, and am looking at forums for other ideas.

    About me - full time cop, part time EMT-I, married, no kids, other hobbies include camping, motorcycling, shooting, outdoor stuff. I live south of Canton in Tuscarawas County, a rural area with a ton of old mines, abandoned roads, etc; ripe for exploring. EDIT, as of April 1 2016, I have moved to coastal northern California!

    Hope to be a productive contributor to the site!

    Day I bought the 2014:

    Update, we moved to Eureka, California in April 2016. The TE did great on the trip but I reckon I could have used some airbags:

    Update, I got a new 2017 SR5 4R in May 2017, and my wife traded in her Prius and also got a new 2017 SR5 4R a week later (pre-mods, and mine is the MGM one):

    My modifications are here:

    This is how it is at present, 2.5" lift, 285s, TRD wheels, other little mods:

    This is the first 4Runner I've owned having come out of full size diesels and several Tacos. I love mine man, pretty sure you'll be happy with your choice.

    Edited the original post to reflect new location (Eureka, Calif) and some links to mods and trips.

    Bad ass,.... way cool mang,... Love the gun metal gray color,.. love mine. Waited for months to score a gray one. Whites, and silvers for fucking days, but, i held firm, for the color to come available.
    Its funny, as it seemed like NO ONE liked the grays, for a long while. Then, seems like when i started looking, and got mine, every buddy now is rocking the gray lol. The new concrete color, thats out, looks WAY sick, i wanna trade mine in already, and find one of those lol.
    Any way, good shit man. You seem hella happy, and that is rad. Keep on truckin mate.
