    Day I brought mine home. Love the inspection marks on the lug nuts. Nothing beats a new vehicle.

    Nope, and you’ll never lose it in a parking lot. Lol
    I walk out to mine and it’s like a spot like.

    You can’t sneak around anywhere. They can probably see you from the International Space Station.

    I keep marveling at all the tasteful tweaks you have made to you rig. If you don’t mind my asking, how much have you spent since your original purchase?

    Thank you, try not to go to crazy on the mods but sometimes I just can’t help myself. Lol
    I’d say I’m close to the 10k mark with all the mods I’ve done so far. Some of the items were on my 22 that I traded for this, headlights, taillights, exhaust, intake, pedal commander, floor mats. Lift, wheels/tires, rack, sliders and all the little small things were new purchases. Really only have a few things left that I want to do, but upgrading the stereo is next on the list. Have all the components already as I bought them all for my 22 but didn’t install thank god before buying this.

    KO2's! Believe it or not, photo was taken an hour after pulling in from the rain. (hasn't been washed in a few days)
    The ceramic coating really does a fantastic job of making it look freshly washed.

    Like those! Is there actually enough room to use them as a step to get in?

    Yeah there is some room to use as step, def more on the rear part which is good for loading stuff on the rack.

    I thought this thread would have a lot more post with owners. Trying to make a decision to go for it or not. My dealer can get me one at msrp. Since I’m a repeat customer.

    At MSRP? Don't even hesitate a nanosecond. The SO color is beautiful and full of character, something so lacking in our time. In certain light the Coral aspect comes out and is stunning. You have to see it in real life. Pictures are pretty useless. GET IT

    For the first time in my life, I paid MSRP for a car and it was a 23 Pro in Solar Octane. The color is stunning in person and the color name fits it.

    I had 2020 AG 4runner Pro before going to my 21 tundra Pro LunaRock. But after having it almost 3 years my wife and I do not need a full size truck. I love driving it but looking at the big picture.

    Check out my "new members" post. I traded a 2020 HE Land Cruiser for mine and haven't looked back! If you go see it in person, bring your checkbook. Solar Octane is unbelievable on the 4Runner.

    Just curious all the owners on this color. I’m no kid no more. But love the color. The other half not so much. She joked I won’t ride in it with me. Lol. Which I know she is only joking. Curious on the age group owning this color.

    I agree no one believes my age. It feels good when someone tells you you don’t look your age. I have a few years on you.

    51 here. I've never been "the look at me guy", but for this color, I made an exception. :anonymous: I can't pull into a gas station without someone saying how great my 4Runner/color is! It's really bizarre, but in a good way. My wife wasn't a big fan, but it's growing on her. lol
