    Hi all,
    Didn't have any plans to ever get rid of my '16 4Runner Trail, but got a very fair offer from the dealership and finally caved. I picked up a 2019 TRDOR Crewmax with the SR5 upgrade package in cement this week. Unbelievable how much room the Tundra has, and the extra HP is a welcome feeling after so much time with the 4.0V6. The 4Runner was so heavy with mods that I was getting 14MPG anyway, so the fuel economy may even be an improvement!

    Thanks to those who have provided information on the array of head units available. I ordered the Dasaita Android last night. Thanks also to @Roman for all the detail on OEM parts. I was able to get the dealer to include the replacement Pro grille assembly based on the part numbers he provided. They didn't think it was possible, and tried hard to give me the run around about how I couldn't be right. It was easy to provide the backup and get the parts ordered thanks to this forum.

    I spent a lot of time on the T4R forum, and really ended up building it up more than I needed. Even the toughest trails I went on weren't challenging at all, and I wasn't willing to make monthly trips to Moab just so my build felt reasonable. I'm trying to stay away from the suspension/wheel/tire pages here, but I know it's just a matter of time.

    I'm in Boise, Idaho now after living in or near Annapolis, MD most of my life. I make long trips almost constantly, and really appreciate everything the PNW (and west in general) has to offer. Since moving here a year ago, I've hit too many National Parks to mention. All in all I think my T4R hit 28 states and the 3 countries in in the continent. Looking forward to similar adventures in the Tundra.

    I'll get a picture of the new ride up once it doesn't look so stock anymore :)

    You're not kidding. I am 6'-6" 290 and feel like a child in the front seat compared to the T4R haha

    Welcome, I was gonna buy a 4Runner as an off-road toy and explore the country when I retire from the Army. But the Lexus Gx 460 or the older 470 keep making my decision harder, I also want a 2013-2015 landcruiser, sigh so many choices.
