I have not seen these pictures before, but is this really the 2004 Toyota 4Runner? <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P> <IMG SRC="http://64.49.221.207/pix/runnertoyota1/4RunnerA1.jpg"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://64.49.221.207/pix/runnertoyota1/4RunnerB1.jpg"> <P>-Drew

A buddy siezed his 4-runner up by driving through a mud puddle (yes a puddle)! The splash got sucked up and twisted the motor! The dealer said he must have partially submerged the truck but he didn't. It stopped dead about 30 feet in front of the puddle were it was towed back to the dealer (he just bought it!)<BR>hahaha! has anyone ever heard of this happening before? <P>

...aside from that I kind of like 'em as far SUVs go. My dad used to have a '98 Grand Cherokee. I really liked that, nice ride. <P>

I like how the car on the left side has about the same equal ground clearance as the 4runner. Way to handle the roads, man!!!

I saw something this morning at the coffe shop called a Toyota HighLander, I think. Looks just like that, was even the same colour. Is that the 4Runner?<P>

No, the Highlander is another Toyota. In the segments, the highlander fits between the 4Runner and the Sequoia.

The new 4Runner is based on the Land Cruiser Prado platform (similar to Current Land Cruiser) and is no longer Hilux( Tacoma-based). Most people know the LC is in an entirely different league as far as sand dune running, rock hopping capability vs crap from the domestic OEMs (less Jeep). It will be one of the most rugged offroad beasts out there...<P>I agree it's a little too tame for its own good. Needs to have an image upgrade to differentiate itself from its car-based siblings - RX300 and Highlander

Seems to me like the people who buy the Tundra use it because they want a pickup truck for their daily commute and not much more. Because, at the worksite (especially when towing or hauling), raw power and a sturdy suspension is what matters, not interior build quality, ride quality, or asthetics.<P>Ford and Chevy pickups are respectively the #1 and #2 best selling vehicles in America (although I personally like the Dodge trucks better <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> ). It will take forever for Toyota to top that.<P>
