'14 4Runner Trail Edition Premium - KDSS - Lifted, sliders, dual battery, etc


What a vehicle! We’ve had so much fun outfitting and driving this 4Runner.

It has run easy stuff around Moab (White Rim Trail, Fins 'n Things, Lockhart Basin), taken some great tracks in Death Valley (Dedeckera Canyon, Steele Pass, Lippincott) as well as a bunch of exploring in the Cascades and Central and Eastern Oregon. Upon coming home it has always been meticulously detailed. Ask my neighbors; they think I’m crazy.

The 4Runner is in perfect mechanical shape, and in very good cosmetic shape.

$36,000 — This is a couple thousand over the blue book value, which I think is fair given the equipment on this rig. (Please don't make me add up what I spent!)

42,XXX. Used around town some, but most of the time used on the highway and dirt roads. Will go up a bit, but no big trips planned for the moment.

Portland, Oregon. Happy to facilitate a fly and drive.

  • a few professional details

Cosmetic imperfections
No dents or dings, but it does have a few flaws, consistent with use as an off-road vehicle.
  • A few pinstripes on the black plastic A-pillar
  • Few rock chips on front fascia / hood
  • One scratch on hatch
  • Scuffed interior plastic in cargo area, driver’s seat
  • Scrape on the bottom left of the bumper. (Could have used some more departure angle.) Not visible unless you're down low.
  • Scratch on right of bumper. Visible, but not horrible.

That the paint on this vehicle is in excellent shape, and the interior is great too. Have always used a HeatShield in the windshield, and full WeatherTech floor liners (all included). Tons of coats of Collonite 845, Klasse High Gloss Sealant Glaze, etc...

Details of the 4Runner Trail Edition Premium

  • Multi-terrain select

  • Rear locker
  • Manual transfer case shifter
  • A-Trac
  • Moonroof

This 4Runner has the KDSS — really great IMHO — which I believe was the only optional item available. Had to search and search for a TEP with KDSS.

It's my wife's car, but she wants a 4R. I'll talk with her tonight. If you're interested, I can send you pictures.
