Thanks Parm. This SUV is literally unstoppable, very capable and I am enjoying every second of it. It shares the same chasis with LandCruiser Prado.

Since it was a very nice and sunny day today we decided to go to go for a drive to another city Moose Jaw in Saskatchewan which is 80 km's away from Regina. Just posting some more pics of my 4Runner taken today and I hope you will enjoy them.

Dark grey is not easily picked up visually by other drivers especially at peek danger times of dawn/dusk. It's a safety downgrade for you. It also shows dust quicker than the color you have.

Please, not dark grey.

In my next life I am going to be born in Canada. Love it and have relatives there. We Americans have an old joke about Canada....we refer to it as "America done right."

whats up brother Dan.....Yeah I am aware of the safety reasons behind the dark grey color but still I dont know why I fall for that color so much .

wohooo you are more then welcome to Canada. Its an awesome country. Why next life buddy who not in this life. I am not against USA or have any bad feelings towards it but truly I was never a big fan of it. Canada on the other hand is very peaceful and safe country to live in and has good relations with everybody.

As per your american Joke "America done right", I've never heard of it I guess because I am in Canada but quiet intresting though and it made me laugh.

Great buy. This would serve you for another decade. Its a monster one should say. How many miles it had clocked when you picked up?

Pls never dream about changing the original color. You will repent later.
All the best.

Hello Ram, this is my 3rd week owninig it and its just a powerhouse and drives like a brand new car. Agreed and confirmed it will be Desert Dune color forever and will never thought of changing it.
Its at 249k now, and it was 248K when I bought it. So I almost did 1000 clicks in 3 weeks which is not too much. I feel bad disclosing the amount I paid for it as I got it for a throw away price . I ran a carfax report on it before purchasing and it came out super clean. It never had any claim or break-ins and its a local SUV not out of province.

I am very sure its good for another 250K. Just bought vent visors for the 4 windows and for the sun roof which I am going to intall on this weekend. Going to post before and after pics. A spoiler, brush guard, rear ladder and skid plate is on the next to do list but not happening until I come back from India.
Promised to myself nothing else then Toyota I am going to buy ever and that also ony Toyta SUV's, and my next vehicle is going to be a Toyota Landcruiser.

That is a bug defelector and its extremely useful. Mostly used on SUV's but have seen on cars too. It keep insects and debris from striking the windshield. It creates a slipstream effect, carrying bugs and dust over the top of the vehicle. In addition to guarding the windshield, it also protects the hood from pitting due to flying pebbles, tar and other road debris.
Its aerodynamic in design and reflects the fast oncoming air to up and down thus providing less air resistance.
