    Have been on the waiting list at Mountain States Toyota since December 2021. Haven’t heard a single thing from them in 9 months. They just mailed me a refund of my deposit. Okay then. Way too much effort to try and give someone way too much money for a truck designed in 2009. If they ever do a 6th gen maybe I’ll try again.

    How is that too much work? If you want the vehicle you have to do the legwork and call around, you'll find one. One of the big reasons they have such a demand is because it was designed in 2009 and mostly the same.

    Yes people will buy the 6th gen because American culture states you need the latest and greatest but the 5th gen will be vastly superior as far as reliability. Perfect example 2nd gen tacoma and 3rd gen tacoma, 2nd gen tacoma has the 1gr 4.0 currently in 5th gens, 3rd gen 3.5 is turning out to be an ok motor nowhere near reliable as the 4.0 not to mention plagued with software mapping issues for the transmission in the name of fuel economy but people still buy a shit ton of them because latest and greatest

    Hey Team,
    Here's my story.

    Was calling around multiple dealers out of state trying to find a LR ORP that was unspoken for. Found a couple, but it was either at a significant markup or they wouldn't sell out of state.

    Decided to just go down to my local dealer, Pedersen Toyota in Fort Collins, CO and talk with the salesman. Was told my buildout was doable, but was looking at a 4 to 6 month wait. I was exclusively looking for a 23 ORP in Lunar Rock without the Moonroof. I had some additional accessories I wanted, like the pro roof rack, tube steps and blackout emblem overlays, but the big requirements was ORP in LR with no moon roof.

    Put my $1k refundable deposit down on 9/23 and was called on 10/6 with an allocation and VIN. I'm missing some of the minor options I wanted like roof rack and tube steps, but those are all addable at a later time. Most important was ORP in LR without Moonroof.

    Just need to wait for it to arrive and get shipped.

    Paying MSRP of $46,124. No dealer markups.

    Thank you. I was really trying to hard in the beginning, calling every dealership within 500 miles of me. The path of least resistance is what worked best for me and the price was right.

    bone stock for now
    The Toyota dealership I bought my 2022 ORP from has a 2023 Black 40TH Anniversary 4Runner. It's sold but they posted it on their Instagram page last night... So the 2023 are now being delivered instead of 2022 4Runners.

    Wow, just wow. I am glad I wasn't in the market the last two years. Two weeks ago I go to one of the Toyota dealers near us in Asheville. They had unsold 4 Runners . Wife really liked the lime rush and I was like it's cool . We have a 24 year old in a wheel chair with some mobility. They had a TRD Pro in Lime Rush but it had that sliding back end thing . It was not very practical for loading a wheel chair due to the added height. So, we asked the dealer about how to get a 22 TRD pro without it and they said they aren't shipping 22s and we need a 23 TRD Trail Premium to get that color. I initially they said 2-4 months. We left.

    I was in town for work stopped by and asked a different sales associate and they did a search on the computer. Voila there was one in transit to another dealer in SC. I asked if they could get it and more importantly was not sold. The guy gave me a bunch of mumbo jumbo about dealer trades in this climate . I was like , I get it. I said I wanted to buy the car from them but I would be willing to go 5 hours and buy it from the dealer in SC. I left . About 45 minutes later the guy said I have your 23 4 Runner in lime rush. It will be here in 10 days. I thanked him and he sold a truck. I think the car market might be breaking free of this log jam it's been in for the last couple of years.

    Short story- I got really lucky & within a week of searching, I was able to secure a local allocation for a TRD Pro. It’ll be here at the end of this month.

    Long Story- Back in March, I decided I wanted the new Tundra. Originally thought I wanted a Tacoma but reality quickly set in that for as much as I wanted my 6’8 frame to fit in a Taco, it wasn’t happening.

    I wasn’t aware how bad inventory had become, so I thought it was going to be a relatively easy process. Auto trader, etc made it seem like most dealerships had plenty of inventory. I quickly realized, not only was inventory low but I also learned about this new concept called a “market adjustment”. It was honestly mind blowing to me.

    I spent weeks emailing around to different dealerships & got on a few “free” waitlists. Even ended up paying a refundable $500 deposit for another. After a month of obsessively searching, I finally found my truck in DC (I’m in Texas).

    The process itself was grueling but in a weird way, it was pretty rewarding. A few weeks ago, my better half decided she wanted to trade in her Blazer for a 4Runner. Thanks to my Tundra, she fell in love with all of the random quirks of Toyota & liked the safety features my tundra has. so, I started the process again but this time, I knew how I wanted to approach the process. Between Autotrader, cars.com & TrueCar, I was able to reach out to a ton of dealers & get on a few lists. Then I got lucky & found a random allocation at a local dealership here that hadn’t been spoken for with no markup.

    It’s a very tough process with the current market but I’ve noticed (both times) that it’s all about timing.

    Drove by the local dealer to see what’s happening and ran across this. It was available as of one hour ago. I talked to a salesman and they though it was reserved but a deposit was not made. I am not associated in any way with this dealer. Sounded like it was at retail. Hope this helps somebody. Located in Rock Hill Sc, just south of Charlotte.

    No true markup but they snuck in some dealer add-on's. About $2.5K's worth. Some of those are designed to look like regular Toyota itemized things both most of them are not.

    Either way, not a terrible price. Especially in this market.

    Waited 5+ months at one dealer - got tired of waiting. Placed a deposit at another and got my Pro in just under 6 weeks.
