:rockon: :rockon: :rockon:
Traded to 2019 ZR2, Red.

4Runner was a GREAT vehicle but could not even tow our 6x10 enclosed utility trailer comfortably, even when it was empty-ish.

It was time. Truck was still leaking BADLY every time it rained or snowed & melted. It was leaking at every single gasket (rear window, front window, all 4 doors). You could sit inside & watch it run down the inside of windshield, rear window & drip off the upper side door beams. It was molding on the inside & starting to stink. Needed new steering gearbox, shocks, new upgraded T-style steering, tires, brake lines, d/s manifold bolts that are barely recognizable due to rust-removed & replaced. Everyone around here would not even touch em once they looked at them.

So, say what you will. PW turned into a money pit. Was no longer a joy to drive. Hoping that this downsized 4x4 with lockers will fill the bill & have minimal problems, but..... As long as manufacturers keep making engineers design things that fail soon after warranty is up, we are going nowhere fast. Regardless of what you buy. :rockon:

It lives!! Still getting used to the bypasses...they are, well loud...makes you continuously think that some something is loose as shit, will definitely take some getting use to. The tires and wheels are mind blowing...Toyo MT's on trail readys...mounted them myself no balancing....and they're smooth as butter

You will be happy with the 4.56s. Will bring your drive ratio back to stock and keep the tranny protected. Plus the cummins gets the same economy at 2000 as it does at 2200

Was apprehensive about mounting the toyos myself and how they would ride....especially on the interstate with no weights or balancing. Finally took it out this morning....unbelievable, they're easily the smoothest riding tires I've ever driven on

A guy with a new power wagon told me the exact same thing about his Hutchinsons and 37" KM2's. Didnt add any weights or bb's and smooth as silk... almost hard to believe you guys!

Truck is looking damn good for a poser! :lol:

Well, IMO you are doing the right thing if you will utilize a diesel (or just want one). Its a lot more cost effective to try to make a cummins truck a pw than make a pw have a cummins. Or is it cummings....
