This Toyota Tonka 4Runner Truck Is For Big Boys

We all know the SEMA Show is an event dedicated for big toys, and apparently Toyota came up with the biggest one of all.

This isn’t our first encounter with the Tonka-inspired 4Runner, as we got up close and personal with the beast, but now the Japanese car manufacturer displayed the project at SEMA and we just needed an excuse to gaze at it again.

As you might already know, Toyota teamed with Funrise Toy Corporation, manufacturer of Tonka toys, to build a life-size Tonka SUV. And this isn’t even the first vehicle of its kind developed by the two companies, as the 4Runner joins the Tonka Tundra fire truck in the 1/1 collection.

Elevated by a ten-inch Bulletproof Suspension lift-kit, the 4Runner sports twenty-inch Ultra Motorsports Type 250 Colossus wheels, wrapped in Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ 38×15.50R20LT off-road tires. To put it simply, the car looks more like a toy-car that went through a growth-ray than a 4Runner. In fact, the only thing similar to the production model (except the body), is the stock 4.0-liter V6 powerplant.

The custom suspension includes King 8×2.5-inch and 10×2.5-inch coilovers, and a wide array of Bulletproof components. Moreover, Bulletproof was in charge of the vehicle’s welded bumpers, roof-rack, side steps and ladders. To make it the perfect outdoor machine dedicated for kids between ages 8 and 80, Toyota fitted the concept with a pop-up tent and Rigid Industries LED lights over each tire to make the vehicles hard to miss, even at night.
