    The interior feels roomier in the FJ. Power/torque for my needs is a wash. I like the FJ styling more than the 4Runner. Don't get me wrong, I love my 4Runner, and it was the only choice for me. Oh yeah, my FJ was Army Green and paid off! On the up side, my Runner is lifted on 285's, I have a roof rack on order, and am shopping bumpers. It's new, with a warranty, and has a bunch of the shiny things that the FJ didn't have. The 4Runner will be a great truck for me for a long time...I just need some catus/4Runner bonding time with it.

    I can't argue with that. I think you just get used to a car and have a hard time adjusting to anything else.

    When I traded in my '03 for my Tacoma, I was constantly nitpicking it. It was a perfectly good truck, just not a 4runner. My 4runner felt right since day 1, and I love it more every time I drive it.

    I think it will grow on you. I never really checked out the FJ cruiser, but the 4runner is as close as it gets. Pretty much the exact same truck with a different body.

    I have a FJ-40 in the garage too, so I had new and old FJ's. Maybe I should paint a white top on my 4Runner! Nah, that wouldn't be right...

    They are Pro comp 05's. I was eyeing them up back when I had the Tacoma. I'm very happy with them. They're light and reasonably priced. Here's a better picture.

    Thanks for the better picture I am really liking them with the White Letter out tire set up are they a gloss or matte finish?

    Got my 2019 Limited 4x4 because, I like a body on frame, and its one of the last ones left. I also like Toyota, and always liked this body style 4runner. Just my family wanted the Limited and I wanted the Pro. I lost that battle and had to compromise. But either way, I will make it a Pro Limited eventually. I like old school without all the stupid safety annoying stuff on vehicles these days. So, that is my reasoning and my old 2000 Camry LE 234k needed a break from daily duties.

    Matte. Although it's almost like a satin finish. It almost looks shiny when clean, but not quite.

    Thank you! I'm happy with the look and plan on getting a second set eventually for dedicated mud tires.

    Weird. I bought them through Discount tire. They have many different lug patterns. Maybe you need to look specifically at the ones with the 6 bolt/5.5" bolt pattern?

    :notsure:

    I added a screenshot of the ones I bought. My other set will probably be the 17×8","0 offset as I think they'll be better for trying to squeeze in 285's
