I recently bought a '19 Tacoma. I'm actually surprised with myself that I didn't buy a Gladiator, being a Jeep guy? But, had bought a 2018 4Runner Limited for the wife, which is awesome, and I kept looking at the Tacomas? Plus, what I like is it being an extended cab, 6 ft. bed, rear locker, technology package, for a great price! Yeah, Toyota build quality was also of mind, and as well that I highly dislike my local Jeep dealer.

Anyway, it's fun to drive! I'm not exactly sure what I want to do with it, with its payload of 1140#s? I really like the access cab, and I just didn't need the rear seats in the double-cab.

We'll see what happens? :D



I've always been fond of the Access Cab as well. If I were to build out a late model Tacoma it would certainly be an Access Cab. We don't have kids and the back seat in the Double Cab is still a joke for full grown adults so it's not like we are missing out on much there either. I look forward to seeing what you do with it.

I recently picked up a 2020 4Runner SR5 Premium and absolutely love it. I really wanted a TRD Pro, but realistically this SR5 makes more financial sense, plus I can build it the way I want. Why pay for the Pro suspension and locker if I'm just going to upgrade to aftermarket anyway?

We debated hard on the 4Runner, having previously owned a 14', we decided on the tacoma this go round. Love the white.

Just traded this:



For this:



After getting death wobble, I’m done with Jeeps. I’ve had 5. I’ve always liked the 4 Runner and this thing is sweet. My plans are just puppy proofing and roof rack. Nothing to the suspension. I love this TRD Fox suspension.

Interesting move, I like it though. Slap a 1" spacer up front and move up to some 275's on the stock wheels and it'll go most anywhere you point it. Congrats on the new ride!

It worked on the Bilstein TRD Pro suspension in the 2018 and back TRD Pro's. You might want to go search over on www.toyota-4runner.org, I am sure it has been covered. If nothing else you'll likely be able to change out coils.
I’m headed to Moab next week. I built my entire Rubicon for this trip. I’m going to see what this thing is capable of and then decide what is needed. This is a complete 180 from what I have driven for the last decade. My money in the beginning will go to dark, dark tint. Puppy proofing. Lockerdown console vault. Prinsu rack. Maybe sliders.

Hahah, crazy you built it all up and then dumped it right before the trip. The Prinsu is a great looking rack but there are far better options out there, I ran one on my TRD Pro so I know. I'd recommend you consider another rack.

Yeah that death wobble is pretty sketchy and at 80+ mph next to an 18 wheeler could be deadly. I lost my ass again on the trade, but I didn’t have the time, money or patience to track it down. What other half racks would you suggest? I would research better but my computer is getting fixed.

I understand the death wobble. I was a big Jeep guy up until 2012-ish when our new 2012 JKU Rubicon had to be bought back under lemon law, that was the last time I gave Jeep any money. Rhino, FrontRunner, Eezi Awn, Victory, SSO, LFD Off-Road, just to name a few.

At the very least I’m removing the FJ rack. I removed it from my 2010 FJ and will remove it from the 4R.
