    New to the 4Runner forum, been on Tacoma world for years. The wife picked up a 2017 Sr5 Premium last night. She has been looking at them for a while but finally pulled the trigger. I have a 2017 Tacoma TRD off-road. Have to admit I might be a little jealous lol. Matching colors by the way

    She is going to love it, so will you. I traded in my Tacoma for one and I am much happier. You might want to consider some Bilstein 5100's up front set at .85. This will keep the frame nice and level and get rid of the nose dive while braking. Simple, cheap mod that really makes a difference.

    We were actually just talking about exactly that. I don’t think we are going to lift it. I was leaning towards leveling it and just doing some wheel spacers and going up a tire size. I didn’t want to hurt the ride quality to much because it rides amazing.

    Congrats! I traded my ‘17 Off Road Tacoma for my gray SR5 Premium. Same as your new rig. Have fun.

    Thanks. I’m sure she will love it. Glad she will be able to get out of the driveway in the snow. She had a 2012 Corolla. We loved the car but it was hard to get out of the driveway during the winter. And we live on a very busy road.

    That’s awesome. We were between the metallic grey and the Barcelona red. Those look sharp. Now I just need a grey Toyota 86 and I’ll be all set. Love the grill on the taco. That’s the first thing I’m doing to mine.
