My wife is looking at an SUV down the road a few months, and really we are looking at the RUbicon or 4 Runner. I am curious about durability. I had a hellish experience on the Dusy with a Gen 3 4 Runner in our group that dissintegrated tottally in a few miles of trail. I believe the Gen 5 maybe stronger, but then I thought that about the Newer xterras <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif" alt="" />

What happened to the 3rd gen?

I dont think the 5th will be a whole lot stronger, but the drivetrain, axles, etc is all beefed up. The trail edition is a sweet rig.

Before we arrived at Thompson hill, driveshaft, rear diff, rear suspension, front suspension, front end essentially came off. It was a shocking horror. And if you know the Dusy, with all its trees towing it out was a nightmare that destroyed every budy panel....

Sure like the Trail as a vehicle better then the Jeep, but if the drivetrain wont make it....

If any vehicle is not maintained, it can fall apart. Many people wheel their 3rd gens hard and the main failures are CV shafts with oversized tires and a front locker.

I'm willing to bet there was significant neglect on the vehicle that caused the failure. Thats definetly not a normal occurance.

The newer 4Runners do have slightly larger axles.
