Hey everybody, So im going to be selling my 04 Jeep LJ soon in search of a more expedition capable rig. Ive basically narrowed it down to either Toyota Tacoma (05-09ish) Access Cab, Or the Toyota 4Runner 4th gen (03-09).
First the Tacoma : I really dig the looks of the Tacoma, and the 6ft bed (i would add an ARE topper). I also like the available lockers, and the bulletproof V6. Im not crazy about the jump seats, the interior, or the price.
Now the 4Runner : I love that the 4Runner has a nice amount of protected interior space for cargo (albeit less that a truck bed), The V8 is a great option for me, and the 5 available seats make carrying more people simple. Im not as crazy about the looks of the 4Runner, or the offroad performance from the factory.
So im at a loss and need some recommendations from both sides of the field! Thanks!
