I think it is a unibody construction under there; I don't see a regular frame. The Four-runner is definitely a pickup truck chassis and a rear wheel drive basis. The Highlander is a front wheel drive like the Camry with extension to the rear wheels for the 4x4 effect. A true truck wouldn't have independent suspension all around.

You're right, I got the Highlander and the Sequoia confused there.

The Highlander is the RX330 with a Toyota badge; both are based off a Camry. The Highlander is a tall station wagon.

The Sequoia is the one based off the Tundra.

Weekend? If it is as hot where you are as it is where I am I hope your A/C works.

If I'm not mistaken (which is possible) - the Highlander is actually built on the Camry platform. I think the Sequoia is on the Tundra platform...

It almost looks like a doorway- wonder what purpose it served

This may have been an old 60's bomb shelter from the cold war era. I can't see a sistern being there..........

Good call- the only thing I could think of for a port that big in a cistern, would be to allow workers to remove the formwork after pouring the roof structure.
