I would hold off on the Ranger, because when the Ranger Raptor comes out it will tank the value of those trucks.
Keep the 4 runner for now.
Thought I already mentioned this to you but maybe it was to another friend of mine: plan is kind of to just lease it for two or three years since the rate isn't terrible even if I put $0 down. Then I can set aside my equity in the 4Runner and if the Raptor makes it over to the states in 2022/2023, I can just turn the Ranger in and decide what I want to do next.
Unfortunately I was reading that the Raptor may only have 5000 lb towing capacity and have half the payload capacity of the Lariat. At least that's how the overseas version is right now.
Plus, regardless, they'll be updating the Ranger that year whether the Raptor comes over or not.
And also, maybe by that time I'll live somewhere different where a full size truck can fit........but probably not.
But I really do need the longer wheelbase of at least
a midsize truck and a transmission that was intended to handle that kind of load to deal with the trailer. I don't want to add a fucking cooler to the 4Runner only to have the trailer flip me over down a mountain pass anyway.
I'd look at the Tacoma as well but the 2020's haven't arrived yet and I don't want the 2019 without all the features when I know I'd regret not waiting for the 2020. But then the 2020's will never sell below MSRP until 12 months from now because the dealers don't budge on Tacomas/4Runners/Tundras when it comes to pricing, especially
in this part of the country. Also, every single review bitches about not being able to fit in the Tacoma's, even some guy that's 5' 6" and I'm 6' 1". I may go check them out just to be sure though.
There are shittons of Lariat Rangers around here that are 8-10k off MSRP right now.

Porque no Toyota? Or is it mandatory you switch from Toyota to Ford and back again?
