Anybody hear anything about the Next Gen? Maybe an I6, SFA, switchable lockers, and a factory supported Trail Team?

Wow I'm already up to $42K on "build your 4Runner" and I haven't even chosen a ball hitch yet... :eek: Dave maybe I can just borrow yours some time?

It will be tough to make real bumpers for that thing with all the plastic. :rolleyes:

Tell Toyota to scrap the 4 runner and send us these instead:

You've still got body-on-frame, LSD and TRAC options, and the return of the e-locker. I'd say they are going in a better direction here than with the 200 series. :bolt:

I am with ya Martin! The plastic Tuna Boat trend is getting really old! I would own a Hi-Lux if we got cool ones like this one which was a son-in-law's of our friends in Brisbane. Sweet and the intercooled turbo 3.0 diesel coupled to the 6 speed tranny was really freaking :cool:!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are those spinners on that Hilux? Dang they're bright.

Nope just bling bling wheels. That truck is all bling and was even special ordered with the styleside bed. Normally it would not be bling and have the standard aluminum trayback like this Nissan.

I guess I'm still of the mindset of that simple/utilitarian is better. I am comfortable in my 40, so any of these luxury liners is way overkill for me. :hill:

Wait, did I just read Uncle Ben right? UB admitting he likes the mini crowd:confused::hill:

Don't know what to think of the new Runner, no tubed bed is gonn be a hard sell for me.

Can anyone tell me why the trail model is rated at 1 mpg less on the highway? Does it get full time 4x4?

Probably not going to happen till 2011.. Well when my 80 decides to blow up... could be next month could go another 100k who knows? but hey a guy can dream..
