2012 Arctic White In Yakima

Hello so I was looking for a new ride and knew I wanted a truck or an SUV. I work in at Costco and notice it seem like only people driving a 4 Runner are people with families. I decided my kids are pretty much raised. I wanted something I could take up I didnít want to look like a man that is raising kids. So I been in a FJ years ago when they were still being made liked it and at that time it thought it was kinda weird with the door design and no window. But I love to hike and I love finding random roads so I was steered by friend to consider the FJ. At work I kept car shopping and didnít like how it seemed like everyone drives a Jeep so I was again directed towards the FJ due to it build quality and it capabilities. I kept shopping for one once I decide that was the direction I wanted to go. I found some that I couldnít finance which really was a bummer since one was a fully modded with the supercharger at a steal and the other one was low miles for it age and both were a priced in there teens. Then I found mine it is a 2012 that is in pretty good shape. It been modded by the previous owner and he took it all off so now I have to put it all back on.

I have already replaced the antenna and bought a window screen to protect the dash. I just bought tires yesterday and will hopefully have them on Tuesday. The next step is findin a new suspension set up with a lift to have the travel. I want the road integrity since it is a daily driver but it is also a weekend warrior.
