That first one is a 3rd gen Wink

OK.  My main concern for a next rig, is to be significantly lighter, narrower, and shorter than the Tundra.  This will allow me to do any trail I want.  Here's my reference chart (J**ps are there solely for comparison purposes Very Happy).  I'm worried about the weight of the 4th gen.  I would like to close to 1st gen specs, but I love the power and comfort of modern generations.



WheelbaseLengthWidthCurb weight
1st gen 4Runner103.0174.666.53,760
2nd gen 4Runner103.3176.866.53,760
3rd gen 4Runner105.3183.270.93,930
4th gen 4Runner109.8189.275.24,280
FJ Cruiser105.9183.974.64,295
Tundra145.7246.779.95,625
JK95.4152.873.73,760

Sounds like you need a 3rd gen. You can mood it to fit your needs with or getting to crazy.

If I got a 3rd gen, it would be something like this:

http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/4575656472.html

I would then drive it directly over to Scotty @ Addicted and have him SAS the front with coil overs. For the rear, I would want to keep the coils so he would probably have to build some custom links and find tall enough coils to match the front. I would run 35's MAX. It needs to be as low as possible.

If I got a 4th gen, it would be something like this:

https://www.ksl.com/auto/listing/1383729

Long Travel suspension would be cool but I wouldn't do that until I knew I absolutely needed it. SAS'ing it would be awesome as well, but wouldn't be my first choice. A simple OME lift, some armor, locker in the rear, and 33's...done.

I really like the 4th gen option, but again, just worried about the size...

FJ Cruiser? Could be a mix of both...SAS and then simple armor, locker, and 35's.... Twisted Evil

You could buy my 3rd then take it to Scotty.

I didn't realize the FJ's were so heavy. For a similar weight, I'd take the 4th gen.

My wife has wanted one for awhile now...and she finally spoke up. Apparently I was taking too long to make a decision on what vehicle I wanted so she made an executive decision.
