Ohhh... Here he comes, "Mr. Better Than Everybody"

Just a little nod to the 4th Gen, a review by Regular Car Reviews. Enjoy!

haha, that was great!

I agree with almost everything except steering feel... That truck clearly has OEM UCAs so the caster is out of spec.

I remember many years ago when someone posted his first review of a 4Runner, which was a 2nd gen. I fell in love with his videos since. This one didn't disappoint.

My nitpicks:

1.) V6 with 33's (or 35's if those are) is going to feel sluggish. V8 master race is the one to review.

2.) Rust. 4th Gen has notorious rust issues, and I'm sure that's especially true in the NE.

Another nitpick, the 2UZ is NOT a V6 and definitely a lot more fun than the V6.

He gets so many things wrong in that video.

Way different frame/suspension than a Tacoma. Tacoma doesn't even have a fully boxed frame in the rear and a completely different rear suspension design.

Steering feel is all in the tires and alignment.

"Torsen locking differential" Shows rolling shot of rear diff.

2UZ V6?

Hood is factory correct for a Sport Edition, not added on

100% entertainment with very little info let alone accurate info.

Really nice rig though.

Yeah, I notice they don't really do their homework before and after reviewing a vehicle. You can find these mistakes in almost all their videos.

That guy clearly thinks he's funnier than he is. I tried muting it but just stopped watching instead.

This is silly. I guess I have a 1GR v8 if there's a 2UZ V6.

This guy makes me want to buy a Jeep. smdh.

Strictly for entertainment purposes. These reviews are mostly satire with little nick nack factoids thrown in.

Regarding the 2UZ though... Pretty sure he was stating the specification information attached on the underside of the hood indicated the hood had come from a 2UZ donor. Obviously misspoke about the "2UZ V6".
