Prosser Creek Reservoir - Truckee, Winter

The Official Build Thread of Trail4Runner.com – 2014 Trail Premium

If you read our introduction to Trail4Runner.com post, then you know the story. I waited a long time for a white 4Runner and couldn’t find one anywhere. After about 6 months, I got a call from Folsom Lake Toyota. They had just brought in a slightly modded 2014 Trail Edition 4Runner. I bought it that day.

After a while, we started tinkering and then came a few more mods. I wanted to give the 4Runner a beefier sound and increase the performance. With 4Runners, performance is a hard word to say. With that being said, we still threw on an exhaust and a cold air intake.

This is the only shot I can find that was right around that time of throwing them on. And it’s a cool shot anyway.
