bjaccord is cool... so far.
I have been seriously looking at 4runners lately since they still have the 4.0 V6 and great transmission, I would keep my Xrunner but with 225k on it, my 80 mile daily commute adds up fast, and an auto trans would be nice!

I work for a Toyota dealer so if you ever need anything just let me know!

Will do. I'm eagerly waiting for the 2020 to come out with the updated LED headlights. For now I'm saving up for another McFly style roll bar and casually looking for a set of FJ Steel wheels for next winter.

The 4Runner is definitely nice. My best friend's wife has one and I helped him do the Warn semi-hidden winch mount and a set of 5100's up front.

Not to thread jack but this is good to know. Do you get any deals on TRD? I eventually want to upgrade to TRD dual side exit exhaust on my 14 tundra.

Got the knobby tires back on this morning.

Yes, the bar is polished stainless steel, no it won't be staying polished stainless steel. I've got (2) sets of KC lamps ready to go on it. They're both HID units, one pair which will be in the middle will be the long range lamps for things way out in the distance. The outside lamps will be conventional driving beam pattern that will illuminate more of the foreground and sides. Yes, I have zero clue when I'll ever use them, but I think they look cool and I've had roof lights on the previous two trucks, so I'm not breaking the streak.

I bought new OEM FJ Cruiser steel wheels for winter. They are 17 x 7.5" and I'm going to refinish them in silver similar to the base Tacoma SR5 steel wheels. I want the military / NATO look for the truck during the winter and this will get me there. It's the 5th set of wheels I've had for this truck. I've got issues.

Lol you cracked me up on even stating when will I ever use these, for the light bar. I think it will look badass and who knows we may have a world wide power outage and you may need those bad boys.

Yeah it's insane. I was also randomly browsing for Jeep Comanche pickups since my pops had a 1987 when I was a kid... holy hell the only ones on AutoTrader start at $10k and there are a few at $25k.

Whatever, I'd rather have a Toyota anyways. My 4Runner is a tank

I hear ya on that. Minus the gas mileage I love my Tundra.

The yota looks great. I like the rock sliders, thought about getting a set, but I really love the hide away steps, minus the price....
