A pleasant day today meant a quick wash of both vehicles. I need it to be warmer for me to go for the full detail, which both vehicles badly need.

I still think the WK2 is a really nice looking vehicle. Crazy that these two designs are nearly the same age, excepting the ‘14 facelift of the 4Runner. I should’ve put the Jeep in “Off Road 2” ride height instead of its parking easy egress ride height for comparison.

Checkout the difference of that windshield angle!


I like the flatter roofline of the 4Runner, as well as the more upright rear. I also prefer the hidden windshield wiper both visually and functionally.

A full comparison of these two will come soon.


And....they’re spreading! Neighbor down the street just picked up an SR5.
