Drove an '01 LX this afternoon and wasn't entirely put off by its pickup on 275/70/16 tires, but I readily acknowledge that 33" + people and gear will make that thing sad.
So... Should I open up my search? Would a '03+ v8 4 runner or GX470 be worth considering? I also realized/remembered today that for whatever dumb reason Toyota put the two LATCH positions in the middle and driver's side seating positions in the middle row instead of both outboard spots - again, weird and inconvenient move.
Thoughts on 4th gen v8 4runner or GX? Either of those are also in the ~$10k range I'm looking to keep near.
