I agree with you that if you need something like that. Get a 4Runner. That's why I still keep my Lexus GX.Slower 0-60 is not the only disadvantage. Don't forget clumsier handling, greater likelihood of a rollover, potential insurance issues if you get in an accident, worse gas mileage among other things.
Why go to the trouble and expense (all while lowering your resale value)? Why not just buy a vehicle that meets your needs like a bigger truck.
I want to know what tires are on this pictured model. I'm assuming by the stickers above the well that they're General Tires. It's actually the Baja 1000 Rally Support Vehicle for the new Ridgeline (according to the article in Car & Driver) and it's an Elite trim.18" wheels with meaty tires, no need to lift. I don't think this one looks lifted at all.
