Arrow Are You a New or Prospective 5th Gen 4Runner Owner? Need Help Searching? Start Here!

Welcome 4Runner enthusiasts! If you are a new 4Runner owner, are thinking about buying a 5th Gen 4Runner, are getting ready to do your first mods or just need help searching then this is the thread for you! Let's get right into it shall we?

The 5th generation sub forum is chock full of great and timely information. There are knowledgeable members here that will help you with questions and opinions. It is a relaxed atmosphere here so please, join in and enjoy the forum!

Section 1: Forum Rules
Have fun, follow the rules.

Section 2: Learn to Search!
The 5th gen 4Runner has been out since 2010 and is largely unchanged. While there have been cosmetic changes the 5th Gen 4Runner still has the same engine, drivetrain, suspension and interior. I am saying this because when you search chances are good that that thread from 2013 is still applicable today. So, what is the best way to search the forum to find what you need fast?

Step 1. Go to google
Step 2. Type "5th Gen 4Runner" and then your question.

That's all! Make sure you put the 5th Gen 4Runner first to narrow the question down to this model. You will be brought to this forum with all the relevant threads shown.
Believe it or not your question has probably been asked and answered many times and that is why there will be many results to choose from. If another member tells you to search it's not because they don't want to answer the question it's because there is already lots of good information out there already!

Section 3: New Member Typical Questions
The following is a list of links that have been compiled that typical new members ask. Bookmark this page!

Section 4: Build and Price
If you are trying to build your 4Runner on the Toyota website and it won't let you add options that you KNOW are available, don't despair. Toyota does not offer all options in all locations. If you really want an option, use another state or part of the country's zip code and then try to build the 4Runner of your dreams! Here is a link to a post that explains this in more detail: West Coast vs East Coast Unit Allocation

How much should you pay for your 4Runner? That's a good question! In reality, location and demand play a huge role in the negotiated price for a 4Runner. Based on observation, you can expect to pay between list price up to 10% off list price. The most common discount seems to be between 3%-7% off of list. Remember, taxes, title, registration, document fees and a whole host of other fees and adders make a difference and they are all different depending on location. If you want to buy a $40K 4Runner for example, expect to pay between $36-$40K for that vehicle. Here's a thread that will give you examples of prices paid: that gives you around 600 examples.

These links will get you started. Happy reading!
