    Well, I was trying to find a picture of my truck then came across a tree pulling venture that had us all cracking up. This tree was pretty rotten - I had previously pulled (snapped off) a huge section of it before with little effort using the truck so I thought "what the heck" I'll just finish snapping the rest of it it two then deal with what ever is left over. There was NO leftover - much to our surprise the F150 pulled out the entire tree, stump and all. Sorry, I was just looking for a single image of my previous vehicle then got into story telling.... It was not an easy decision to give up the Ford especially in the beginning but now the heart is 100% with the 4Runner.

    2014 FJ. Loved it but wanted a back window to be in more than two positions. Also, I officially hate suicide doors after owning a vehicle with them.

    2005 GMC Yukon. Loved it! Better gas mileage than the 4Runner, more comfortable, could tow more, more power, paid for, but at 100k miles, stuff started to go wrong and I got nervous. Going for a Tundra next.

    2012 GMC Acadia. Worst vehicle I ever owned. Intend to take care of my cars so I was pretty disappointed. I’ll never buy a GMC again. I’m sticking with Toyota. The cost of the vehicle plus cost of ownership really killed me. I should have done more research. Glad it’s gone.

    I replaced a 2008 tacoma 4 x 4 that I bought new. Sold it with 160k miles and still ran like a champ.

    2005 F150 fx4, was a good truck to me until the notorious 5.7 Triton started to fail, cam phasers were biggest issues. Was happy to move into a more nimble comfortable dependable 4runner.

    Ditched the 08 Odyssey...finally! Previously had a 2004 Colorado that was a dutiful off-road servant for 14 years. Once it was gone we needed a wife-friendly/small kid friendly vehicle and the van fit the bill. The kids are older and the wife said she always wanted a 4runner. Say no more! Brought home a 2011 SR5 4WD this past weekend. Finally back to off-road trails again. Good riddance minivan!

    Traded in my lightly modded 2013 S4 for a '21 TRD ORP. S4 was the funnest car I've ever owned. However, after replacing the mech unit in the DSG trans twice, I couldn't justify keeping it any longer. MxePq3yCl2QxQ_GrJ6oUlwLBGg79iHe2QGAZXIjI_be75ec79cd9a8805ef8e6303376188952cc1ac2a.jpg
