2020

I have a 2020. It has scratches, dings, damaged wheels from trail rocks, dog hair, dirt, etc. doesn't bother me one bit. That's life, I use it for what it was made for. It still gets me anywhere I please safely, and that's what I care about

Amen. I already have over 16000 miles on my 2020 and plenty of rock dings, some brush marks, plus just got my first battle scars dropping a ledge on Imogene Pass a week or so back with a crappy line (got a nice bumper scratch on the rear valance and smacked my big ole' TRD Pro exhaust tip plus bent the one recovery hook by the rear hitch a touch).

I'm happy I'm using it for what I wanted it for. If and when my bumpers get trashed, will just be an excuse to go aftermarket .

Depends on your plans.

4Runners depreciate very slowly but it really depends on whether you plan to keep or sell for a 6th Gen. I'm at the point with my 2012 where its trade in value is the same as my '17 VW Daily Driver.

I'm seriously considering trading the '12 and my VW in for a 2021 model and then flipping it over for a 6th gen if I like what I see.

Wait for the 6th gen then decide. My 2001 4Runner was almost 18 years old with 200k and I could have still been driving it.

That's a clean looking bumper...I like it. I hadn't been on C4's website in a while and didn't realize they had this offering. Thanks!

Thanks all...I see both sides but ultimately, I think keeping mine, upgrading it and running it hard is the right decision. Also, waiting to see how the 6th gen unfolds will be interesting. If its a vast improvement over the 5th, perhaps I'll have a reason then.

Keep it and mod it. An old paid off truck is the best one to modify. Since you're considering bumpers and such you won't feel as bad for cutting up plastics. And as you said dings, dents, and pinstripping won't bother you as much either. Learn from me, I wish I had kept my 2013 LTD and had just modified it instead of jumping into my 2016 trail.

You will spend the same exact amount of money...maybe more on the new T4R as you are quote "dumping" into the old one. Why dump (waste?) an additional 40k?

It's paid for, keep it.
