Correct. I tow nothing with my runners and fuel economy is not a selling point. I think the only reason people are buying so many is they are like a lego and build so neat vehicles.
On that subject with all the groups and forums I belong to that pertain to 4runners, it seems to me that all the wrong people are buying them. A vehicle that is lost in time usually does not make a good fit for people who really want all the new features that other vehicles come with.
All worthless information, but I have not posted in a bit.
