I hate to post a thread like this without pictures yet, but I'm too damn excited. I just traded in my 99 XLE v6 camry for a 2005 Toyota X-Runner. Oh my God I love this truck. This thing handles. It sticks to the road way better than my camry which was dropped on 18"s with the tokico/eibach setup and the trd rsb. And the power:jerkit: my god this things got balls. I bought the first one our dealer got. It is the speedway blue color. I am in love with this truck. I'll post some pictures from the web for now, it looks exactly like this truck.




I'll get some pics of my truck Tommorrow. After I zaino it:cool:

I got pissed when I only saw "I traded in my camry..." on the main page. Then I came in to the Camry forum and saw that it said you got an XRunner and I creamed my pants:eek:

Those things are sooo fucking sick!!!! I want one!!!! How much did they finalize it at for power? Is the supercharger out? How is the drop on it? Can you feel that X brace in action?

I just got back from putting about 60 miles on it. This thing is crazy fast, and I haven't even floored it. I'm having a hard time keeping it under 3k rpm, it's just too tempting. My left leg isn't used to doing all the shifting either. I am amazed at how well this thing handles, it's pretty hard to get the front tires to screech at all. Toyota used the 350z's handling ability's as the goal for the handling and I have got to say that it handles almost as well but 5x more the comfort over potholes, dips and rough road compared to the 350z. The xrunner has 245 hp and 282 ft lbs of torque. As far as I know the supercharger hasn't came out yet. I'm not sure if I am going to supercharge it or not. I will absolutely be getting a big brake kit either TRD/wilwood/brembo/stoptech. Whatever looks/performs best. A shortshifter is a must. But stock isn't too bad but still feels like a truck.

THe MSRP on this truck is 23,805.00 including the 4 piece carpet floor mats, and delivery, proc., and handling fees. I was amazed at how cheap it was. The 04 S-Runner was over 25k.

If anybody is interested in purchasing my 99 camry the car will be going for sale at my dealership. If interested please pm me and I can go into detail with what has been done to the car.

Now I gotta do some research on the parts that are coming out. I'm glad I get a discount from work on all the trd stuff.

So if anyone want's it it is prepped for a baddass system. You're right I'll probably end up supercharging it.:lol:

Oh and I forgot to mention this thing turns heads like crazy. In those 60 miles of driving I have been challenged to a race by a gs300, a focus, a nissan frontier, and two hot white chicks in a 4runner. :lol:
