    Prepping to buy New
    I've been lurking on here for a while and back in early March my wife picked out her new 2020 4R. She went with a silver ORP. I'm honestly a little jealous, but I have a 16 Tacoma OR I purchased new so it was her turn. We both like to keep our vehicles a long time, so Toyota is always the answer.

    Upon purchase, she said I wasn't allowed to do anything to it like my heavily modded Tacoma. Well, I've been doing a secret build a little at a time! It's been fun doing these mild mod's, but man this thing in itching for a lift and I'm pretty sure I can't pull that one off.

    Nothing fancy mods:
    • Ceramic Pro 9H Coating
    • Toyo AT III's
    • MESO Puddle Lights (of all the things, she did notice this but liked it)
    • RAV4 mirror upgrade
    • OEM bug shield
    • RCI Skid Plate (so I can change the oil easier)
    • OEM LED fogs
    • Cargo cover & net
    • Radio Screen protector
    • Hitch Plug
    So, like I said, nothing too over the top and it's been a fun build. I'm sure there's more to come, like Bilstein 5100's to level, some window tint and other fun stuff. She's a lucky gal and doesn't even realize it! Now on to my crappy pics.

    Any pics of your wheel and lift setup? No issues with your TSS? We just picked up a 2020 so I'm not too familiar with the sensors and the system. This is the first year for the TSS on the 4R's. My Tundra doesn't have it so no issues with my lift LOL.

    I had my Eibach Pro Truck Lift put on by these guys in Springfield, MO.
    They could probably order one for you and install it in a day.

    Install + alignment was $500.

    The ride is good. Only difference is that you do feel taller.

    Let her test drive a V6 Rav4 AWD and she will not think twice about that Honda. I freakin LOVE mine, of course I drive the piss out of it and almost 200,000 miles later, she still runs like a race horse...just wish she was a 6 speed.
