Time To Learn

Hello 4Runner Folks!

My name is Sergio and I am located in South Western PA. I've always liked the 4Runner and I stepped into this forum primarily to learn about the late model rigs as I am planning to take the plunge shortly.

From what I have seen in my limited time in this forum, there is a serious wealth of knowledge and huge variety of experiences, so I now I am in the right place. Time now to absorb info, feed the lunacy that will turn into a new addiction, and hopefully make some good friends along the way.

Cheers!

Welcome

Welcome, Sergio! There are a lot of differences to consider in the suspensions of the different models. Some are better at off-road, softer riding for street use, or have more luxury features. They can all be modified. Test drive the various models. I test drove a new Limited when I was looking, and it wasnít for me. I chose an SR5-P, and it has fit my purposes well. Good luck with your search!

Welcome, Sergio! Dig in and learn. Before coming to this forum
I had owned a 1st gen and a 3rd gen. I had no knowledge of the Gen5 attributes and differences, and learned everything about them here. I settled on my TRD Off Road, and couldn't be happier with it. Always remember: whatever 4Runner you buy, the quality is top notch. Always has been.

Thanks for that! I am leaning towards that model, too or the TRD Pro. And for sure Toyota makes a seriously well made product.

Agreed - tons of information (maybe overkill) but in the end, can you ever have more info than you need? Maybe, maybe not. It all depends on what you do with the info that matters to you. It's all about personal goals, and vision.

I had been looking for about 8 months to find my 4Runner. They definitely live up to their reputation.
