Is that a challenge? Unfortunately, I'm a coward, so I'll just briskly walk up some stairs.

Back to your real question, depends on money. If you have it ifs is great and is hard to beat. Has more moving parts though, costs more to build up, and harder to get. Solid axle is relatively easy to build or replace with bigger axle, parts are usually easy to find, especially on a jeep, and with the ease of taking fenders off a jeep can fit big tires quick and easy too. So, depends on what you want and your wallet really. It's an age old debate.

Agreed. Most stupid thing I've ever seen. Only thing I dislike about the fj's, low goofy Windows with a mile long blind spot.

And there you have it, the 4 runner is certified badass.

I can't even believe I am going to argue with you here, because you are a complete retard...but you call that flex?

Is all of the flex hiding on a rig behind the shopping cart? I hear these photos have lots of it, but I just can't find it. Maybe I'm doing it wrong.

I admit not the best pics, couldn't find better ones. Still a very capable rig. If you are to blind and asinine to see that, not my problem. Not a fan of Rockstars, especially bigger rims, but he got them free and has changed them now. And for a mostly stock rig, yes that is good travel. You know I find it funny, most of you guys are driving a little pos car... Where's your pics?

The only appropriate insult I can think of that applies to 4runner guy is that he's dumber than bluemoo or whatever the heck that guys handle is
