    I’ve seen a 4Runner involved in head on collision with a fusion (combined speed estimated to be around 110-130mph) and 4Runner while totaled the driver survived with what I would consider minor injuries.

    The reason for buying a 5th Gen 4R was that our 4th Gen 4R has been so damn reliable. In the 295,000 miles the only part that I replaced was the radiator, and it was easy to replace. Still runs great.

    Cause Toyota stopped making FJ's:mad: Had 2008,2012, traded 12 for 2015 Tacoma AC. It was ok but when they get close to 100k miles I trade. Didn't want a full 4 door vehicle BUT this one has changed that thinking! Really impressed with it!

    Had a 17 Tacoma that I “liked” but never really “loved”, but fell in love with the new 4Runner after looking at them for some time. We had an 03 4Runmer for years that was awesome too.

    I bought a 2019 trd off road , why I bought it because well, I m not going to get into to much we know that it's reliable, durable etc , but for me honestly is the fact that it's made in Japan , which the workers have pride in what they produce , and build period ..... Cheers

    Did you part out before selling / go back to stock or did you find a buyer to take the whole package?

    The 2018 outback CVT transmission couldnt pull an 840 lb trailer without having issues, so we went straight to the dealer and tradded it for a 19' Off Road.

    I parted out as much as I could. They got the shell and full rack, winch bumper, didn’t get the ultrahook though. I only have a few things left to sell but most of it disappeared pretty quick.

    Wife just totaled her 14 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport last week hitting a deer, she’s always wanted a 4 runner, found this gem at my local Chevy dealer I deal with, 2019 TRD off road, 3600 miles on it, got it for 35,000 last night, we both love it with two young kids.

    Now that my needs have changed and I don’t really need a bed, I’d love a Runner but I’ve got so much sunk into the taco a T4R seems like an unsound decision.

    Traded in my '16 Tacoma Double Cab Short Bed for more usable interior space.
    I got the 3rd row to seat 7.
    I needed the interior space because of all the road trips my family takes.
    No more stopping just to get out and grab things. Now someone just has to reach or crawl into the back.
    This 4Runner is definitely a better made vehicle compared to the Tacoma IMHO.
