Added another Toyota to the family
 
2010 Rav4 base for the wife. So far, quite happy about it. Even has a center diff lock.

Sweet, you can chop the front end off that one and reweld the 4Runner frame back in and BOOM! you are well on your way to another trail rig ;) :hill:

Pics? I like those Rav4's and their styling has come around IMHO.

I love this thing!! Going to take it to the mountains this weekend, so we'll see how it does. I'm so stoked!

It drives awesome, we are averaging 25 mpg, and it is WAY more comfortable than any of the minitrucks I drive, or the corolla.

Now I need to fix the corolla, as its starving fuel at under a half tank. Likely a fuel pump or filter, so I'll be replacing the filter shortly.

Looks great - I really like the color. I would love to replace our 13.25 mpg '95FZJ with one of those - alas, the '80 won't die and the Missus loves it, other than the mileage.

Yeah, I love the color.

Going to make a canvas liner for back, when the seats are down, so the camping gear doesn't get the seat backs and floor all dirty.

Wow, RAV4s have gotten a lot fancier.

Looks like a really nice car, congratulations!

AxleIke 07-21-2011 03:42 PM

Thanks! and yeah, they are quite a bit different from the original model that toyota came out with back in the day. That is both good and bad.

Rezarf 07-21-2011 04:48 PM

I think that looks great!
