Want something that would handle mild trails but still be a daily driver.
Probably end up with bumpers, sliders etc.
Havent seen any locally, thought I would check to see if anyone in the club has experience with this.
Dave, are you after the V8 engine on the 4runner? If not, why not get the 5th gen with the Trail Edition. I'm pretty sure there would be a used on somewhere on autotrader, craiglist, or cars.com. It has the rear locker, Kinetic Dynamic suspension, multi terrain select knob, crawl knob, etc etc. It is like a mini land cruiser. Just my two cents though.
