    I did the opposite. From runner to Tundra. I love the Tundra and would never go back but everyone’s situation is different. I think I averaged roughly 18.5 in the Runner and around 15-15.5 on the Tundra.
    Damn nice looking Pro. Congrats!

    I love that color. I'm getting a Tundra next may. My dilemma is that while I love that color, it only comes in TRD Pro which is not the package I want. I want the 1794 unless they give me a great deal on the Platinum instead.

    Usually pro colors go to other trims the next year...or so I've seen. New on pro...next year on other trims.

    Nice choice. I have a 17 white Pro 4R and really considering the 19 Pro 4R just because of the new OEM roof rack. Would look good in the driveway next to my 19 Pro Tundra too :thumbsup:

    Great vehicles, had a '96, '08, and '14. Honestly MPG was not much different since I drive city 90% of the time, and the Tundra is much roomier inside which I enjoy. Good choice and nice color, enjoy T4R.ORG it is a great forum.

    Love that voodoo blue!

    I have had a few 4runners including my 86' that I have had for almost 28 years. It had 400k miles when I gutted it for a project truck build, and I'm still working on it... and I'll never get rid of it. I call it a "400"Runner (small-block 400 motor)... to give it some pep!

    IMG_20190402_001034~2.jpg IMG_20190402_001123~2.jpg

    I wanted to get a new 4runner for the wife, but we ended up with a Highlander for the 7 passenger reason. Good luck, you won't be disappointed!

    Sweet ride, I did some research when buying my truck. With my foot gas mileage in the 4runner wouldn't be too far off from what I'm getting now. Which is 13 to the floor and 17-19 highway. Mostly 13. But you sure as hell will out four-wheel me.

    Nice ride brother, I have a 2017 white TRD PRO and I can tell you the gas mileage is about 3 mpg better but it has no balls what's so ever. It's a great SUV and there are alot of after market stuff for them also they are FN great offroad:muscleflexing:. You will miss your tundra when it comes to power and room but good choice if you had to go away from a tundra

    A serious consideration of mine. Needed more room in second set of seats, and preferred a wider cab and extended full tank.

    That color is awesome. Do the runners have all the options the Lexus GX have in the limited and Platinum?
