Toyota 4Runner Pro4x (yep thats right)
« on: August 23, 2018, 05:04:54 PM »
Well this was turn of events.

2 weeks ago, me and the fam decided to head up to Serrano campgrounds up at Big Bear to camp and try out our new RTT. well our 2nd gen X decided it didnt want anything to do with it. Trans gives out again. 3rd time to be exact. Lucky me that im within warranty and the X is getting a new trans for free. Wife was devastated and didnt want to get in the X no more. So as a good husband that I am, got her a new car.

Welcome our new rig. 2018 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4x4.

my 1st gen is sold and once I get the 2nd gen back, I will post it for sale. With what ever money I get out of that, I will search for another 2nd gen X (in 4x4) or frontier.

Nice.

Those new 4Runners look like they should be pretty good.

Looks good.  I would probably go the same route and sell the 2nd Gen X for another one or build the 4Runner......

I keep telling my wife that if anything ever happens to the X, we'll have to replace it with a 4Runner. Nice job Edwin!

Nice swap.  I've been feeling a little guilty, :-[ the beginning of July I bought a new Tacoma TRD 4x4 Offroad and haven't posted anything yet. I still have the X but will be transitioning to the Taco over the next year or so.  Glad to hear so many are looking at the other side of the fence.

Hey you guys.
while I'm very happy for Edwin, that is no reason to turn this thread into an X bashing, Taco sucking act of treason.
I won't stand by while you bad mouth America... OK, so the're both Japanese rigs, but still

No X bashing here mister BOD sir.  I love my X.  It's gotten me out of more than one sticky wicket (we don't need to discuss how my wicket got sticky in the first place, this is a family site).  With close to 240k miles things are starting to go a little soft and it's getting more expensive to fix them.  I bought the truck because I needed the bed and there just isn't enough room in the back of an SUV to carry the big stuff.
