    Long time tacomaworld lurker part time contributor. Selling my Taco on Saturday for a ridiculous amount of money (resale value is amazing on these things). Once sold I will be in the market for a 5th gen 4Runner.

    Couple questions.....
    1. I want a trail edition, but do not offer it with a sunroof?
    2. Buy new or certified used with less than 25k miles? They are basically the same price it seems.

    Well we went with a 2016 certified used SR5 with the 3rd row. Only has 9000 miles on it. Wheels, tires and lift will be on order soon!

    I'm debating between 275's and 285's. I really didn't like the amount of power loss my 285's gave me on my Tacoma is it similar with the 4Runner?

    My 2014 T4R is significantly underpowered, so I stuck with 275s. Also, no engine/intake/exhaust mods (yet) to try to solve the power issue.

    Minimal, but noticeable.

    Did you get 275s? They can be had in 6-ply also.

    Can I ask what was the major factor(s) in letting go of a Tacoma for a T4R were for you?

    Glad you scored your sunroof.

    Wife and I are thinking of trading my Taco for a T4R. I want the TE but am not sold on the Crawl Control and MTS, yes the rear locker is neat but honestly I need it to get me to and from work in snow. Max we get is maybe 14" once every 6-10 years lol... And get us out on the beaches of the Outer Banks.

    So I am thinking SR5 Premium. But with the sliding tray as we would camp in it from time to time. I could use a level floor.
