    Hello all,
    I'm a current Tacoma world member and just traded my 2015 AC Tacoma for a 2016 4Runner SR5. Picking up the 4Runner next Tuesday. Really looking forward to the interior size. I had the chance to drive my sons 2016 in May on a 5 hour family trip and just couldn't shake how much I really liked the extra interior and comfort. So out with the Tacoma and in with the 4Runner. I will miss the truck and the bed space but time for a SUV. I have to admit they really hooked me up on my trade in value and price since its end of model year. Also anyone who doesn't think tacomas hold their value is crazy. I pretty much drove the Tacoma for 2 years and put 60,000 miles on the truck and got exactly what I paid for it minus the upgrades. Anyway if your in the Lancaster pa area and have any meets let me know. I will update with a pic next week.

    Yep I had 2 Tacomas and my wife has this 2016 TEP 4Runner. I am really shocked how nice this thing is. My Tacomas were plenty nice too, but this is really a well built vehicle, that looks really mean with some meaty tires and a few basic mods.

    I replaced all interior builds with led from diode dynamics. What a difference for clarity and brightness. Tint the driver sand passenger Windows too. That is a very nice ride. Very well made vehicle

    I kept all the LEDs from my Tacoma so interior will be done tomorrow, also have the reverse lights and tag lights which I will also complete tomorrow.

    It's a great idea. Have a qualified shop do it for you. They look great leveled and does not change the ride with a noticeable difference. It's not costly at all. You bought a fantastic Suv with endless modifications.

    I been thinking about the 2 inch supreme suspension 2 inch front level kit. Easy to install and levels the 4Runner out nicely. Figure I'm going to go with these and some nice wheels and 275 or 285 tires. At least until it's older and not a daily driver. Then I'm going all out.

    I think that's a perfect height adjustment. That will ensure no rub on the larger tires. Send pics when you decide to install.

    I wouldn't worry about the warranty, unless the parts you install directly cause something to fail then you should be fine
