    Hang in there. My timeline ended up being: arrival at port — Dec. 3, arrival at dealership — Jan. 12.

    So, I changed my mind and canceled my order for the 4Runner and purchased a loaded GMC Sierra 1500 AT4. At the end of the day its costing ~5K more, but you get a lot more for the money. Here is a pic of the one I will pickup next week. Below is a screen shot of the pricing and specs. In addition to the 5,500 Purchase allowance, they added another 750 discount for trading in a non-GMC product. They also gave me 40K for my trade (2019 TRD Pro). Here is a link to the dealer info on the one I purchased.

    This is a beast, 6.2L V8, 420 hp @ 5600 rpm, 460 lb-ft of torque @ 4100 rpm, with a 10 speed transmission. The gas millage is close to the 4Runner. Not as off road capable as the 4runner, but I'm not going to any challenging off road situations and figured this rig would be more fun for me. What do you think?

    Looks nice, man. I’ve always wanted a pickup truck, but in the end decided that a 4Runner suited me better — I just don’t really need a truck bed. Finally picked mine up today. Here she is:

    Beautiful rig! I hear you on not needed the bed. Same for the 4runner cargo area, it would be empty 90%+ of the time if I had one. I could probably do with a 2 seater for the most part. I just like driving trucks over smaller vehicles.

    Congratulations if it makes you happy!
    May I ask why you changed your mind? Is it the bed? I had to rent a u-haul pickup (for work) this past summer as my truck was down. It was a 2020 & had an engine tick already @ 5k miles. It was a base model but didn't feel very well built. The check engine light came on day 2 then went off before I returned it.
    Ride quality was my only positive experience, although I daily a F-250 with airbags that bounce!
    Best of luck & I hope you like it and treats you well.
    Ryan.
    Edit I had the truck for a total of 5 days.

    Your money your choice! But at that price point I would just get a raptor.

    I thought about the Raptor. I like the styling of the Sierra AT4 over the Raptor. Also the Raptor is pretty wide. I don't keep my vehicles very long, 2-3 years usually. So, who knows, maybe next one will be a Raptor.

    The bed is one of the primary reasons. I'm doing some home renovations, new deck, gutting a couple of bathrooms, etc... over the next couple of years. Also that 6.2L put me back in the seat with a smile on my face when I pounced on it.

    That's a nice looking truck Brian, we don't regret buying our GM products in the past (9 new pickups), I have been good friends with the owner of a Chev/GMC dealership for decades. Just because his sales manager is a putz, is beside the point. Have fun with the new truck!
