    Toyota delivers 40th Anniversary 4Runner with great heritage graphics

    |

    Next year marks the 40th anniversary of the Toyota 4Runner. To celebrate, Toyota is launching an appealing package called the 40th Anniversary Special Edition. This 2023 4Runner gets some nice wheels, some interior fine-tuning, and a seriously sweet tape job on the outside. There are three colors to choose from here; White, Barcelona Red, and […]

    2022 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro – Let’s Take Another Look!

    |

    Having just completed a week in the Toyota 4Runner reminds me of how I genuinely enjoy the analog experience. I remember several years ago, six, perhaps seven years actually, the last time I spent time with the 4Runner. I recall it being an honest vehicle. That remains true today. While the platform is quite old, […]

    2022 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro l Review

    “Why are dinosaurs always green?” That line, posted to Twitter in response to a photo of this vehicle, stayed with me throughout the entire loan. I’ve been overly critical in my reviews about the lack of updates to Toyota’s more rugged vehicles like the Tacoma, Tundra, and the 4Runner. Mercifully the Tundra was updated for […]

    Ridiculous dealer mark-ups now on the 4Runner TRD Pro

    The fifth generation Toyota 4Runner has been around since the 2010 model year. Algebra tells that this is 11 models years, ignoring the fact that the mechanicals date back to the fourth generation 4Runner. Despite that age, it is a solid rig. My 4Runner is over ten years old and in that time only one […]

    Project V8 4th-gen 4Runner: Spring update

    |

    I’ve had the yet-to-be-named 4Runner for a few months now. (Millenium Falcon is the working title, in case you were wondering, continuing my Star Wars theme). As is the case with any new-to-you project, three things need to happen: Set a baseline, mend existing issues, and start improving. Much of this has happened. Progress has […]

    2005 Toyota 4Runner Limited V8 4WD: Introduction

    |

    Here’s my newest acquisition: a 2005 Toyota 4Runner Limited in Titanium Metallic, with the 4.7L V8 and 4WD. I’ve been joking about what to name it, and the official name is TBD, but I really wanted to name it Britney because, well, oops… I did it again. Or “T-3PO,” aka “The Millennium Falcon.” There are […]

    At first glace, you have seen this before. It’s just another heavy duty truck modified for armored SWAT duty. Then you notice the paint and it appears that this is just another heavy duty truck modified for armored SWAT duty, that’s been further modified for armored luxury lifestyle. Every issue of duPont Registry is filled […]

    The 2021 4Runner Trail Edition isn’t what it should be

    |

    I love you, Toyota. I really, really do. I love the Tacoma. I love the Supra, in all of its iterations. And I especially love the 4Runner. But I don’t love the new Trail Edition Package. It shouldn’t be called Trail, it should be called Campsite. I get why you did it, Toyota, I really […]

    2020 Toyota 4Runner Nightshade Special Edition: Review

    |

    We cover the Toyota 4Runner a lot here on Hooniverse. So it was with that in mind that I decided to pile on with my review of the 2020 Toyota 4Runner Nightshade Special Edition. Because, here’s the thing – I don’t really like the Toyota 4Runner. Never have. I’ve always found it overpriced with a […]

    What I learned from the Stormtrooper 4Runner project

    |

    It’s been seven months since I sold the Stormtrooper 4Runner. It was my first true road-legal project, my first that really felt like a nonstop commitment. It was in my care for two years and change. Certainly enough time to get to know it, and more than enough time to love it dearly. And now, […]
