I find this to be true. Plus the back cargo isn't as good as the Rover space wise. However for overlanding in the middle of nowhere reliability is key. Unless there is a tool set and jack or easy diy to fix this as you go. I really hate 4runner and it drives poorly. I love the lr4 and disco 5 but 30,000 mile trip maybe risking it.I’ve had a 5th gen 4Runner Trail prior to my LR. I say this is all seriousness. I will do whatever I can to avoid another 4Runner. Or at least 5th Gens. Yes their V6 is reliable. But it’s anemic. Then you see those Yota clowns throw another 1,500 pounds of overlander armor on it. Plus bigger wheels. No thanks. The thing is barely adequate to power the truck stock. I love my V8, air suspension, character etc.
Disco 5s can be nice too. I just hate the shape. Check out a full fat L322 Range Rover also. They ended in 2012 with the same 5.0. And they can be found with the same HD pack with rear locker.
Tbh the only benefit I'm thinking is maybe pick up a 100,000k mile lr4 with all the service done. Then sink in money for coils plugs fluids suspension and so on. It's crazy you can get a 2016 lr4 for 12k and a 2012 200k 4runner is still almost 30k without even 4wheel drive or a simple sunroof.
