Not a fiddy owner any longer.....

Well guys, I am no longer a F150 owner :/ As of last month, I sold the truck and have moved on. Basically the truck was getting too expensive to own. I had lost my job in December and got another one mid-February an hour away. The new job pays A LOT better, but being out a month and a half put a hurting on the finances. Sooooo to help recover lost wages, I sold the truck to a guy in Wilmington bought a ………GASP……a Toyota 4Runner! LOL. The truck needed timing chain tensioners and I wasn’t about to fork out the money for that as well. The 4Runner already had a few mods done to it including my beloved BFG A/T tires (they were new). It had about $4k in mods! Also it had a cheaper payment and insurance, cheaper to fill up, and cost less overall than the F150.

A little about the new ride:

2006 Toyota 4Runner Sport Edition 4x4
Titanium Metallic
4.0 V6 w/ 236 HP and Automatic125k when I bought it

Mods when I got it (estimated cost):
TRD Catback Exhaust--$650
TRD Cold Air Intake--$450
SpiderTrax 1 ¼” wheel spacers (very popular mod)--$200
32” BFG A/T Tires--$900
Tinted Windows--$250
Pioneer Premier F90BT Double Din--$1000 new
Alpine Amp--$450
Amp Wiring Kit--$?
Boston Acoustic SL60 6.5” components-$150
Boston Acoustic Rear speakers--$?

Mods Ive done:
Clarion CX501 Double Din headunit I had in F150(I HATED the Pioneer)
Autotek 6.5” component front speakers (one of the in-line crossovers went bad on BA)
License Plate LEDs

Future Mods:

Toytec 1-2” lift. I don’t want the full 3” lift.Repaint roof rack
Kicker C12 subwooferAftermarket Wheels

Nice purchase, and to have driven the 4Runner with the V6 VVT-i, it does give out some surprising hp vs gas milage, id consider as the family ''car''
