    I pulled the trigger in June and traded in my 2016 SR5 (2x2)

    Upgraded to a 2020 TRD 4wd----loving it

    there are a few things that I miss -- like the gps navigation on my 2016 and the 5th row seats

    but the BIGGEST thing I am not liking is the "Pin-Stripe" on my new 2020 TRD

    ----do all of the TRD models come with pin-striping ???

    ----I am hesitant to remove and then damage my paint----or can this be achieved with doing something special

    thanks for the replies

    Pics? I can’t say I’ve noticed any with it. It depends on if they clear coated over it

    Is it paint or vinyl? I wouldn't hesitate at all to pull vinyl pinstriping off. Pinstriping is a dealer add on, not factory.

    5th row seats? That's a longgg 4Runner! :)

    The only pinstripes on mine were put there by nature (those pesky tree branches!)

    I just looked more carefully at it and I believe it is a vinyl stick on

    I might try to use hubby's heat gun this weekend and try to remove it ----- I cant stand it especially when I see other white TRD's and they don't have any pinstriping

    what's odd is that the 2 white TRD's that I was looking at in June BOTH had the pinstriping - I even asked the dealer if it can be removed but they said it comes with it and they didn't want to remove----hmmmmm

    for the price I paid for the new TRD I didn't pursue it :)

    Most likely pinstriping would have been listed on the Monroney sticker as a dealer installed option, perhaps as part of a package.

    ^^ of course dealer will not do anything for you. But if you pursue with a deal, they will.

    Be careful with that heat gun.

    only guessing... your looking at the clear factory paint protection shield at the bottom of the rocker? most vehicles have that.
    Otherwise if the dealer added it a hair dryer, plastic razor blade and or 3m automotive adhesive remover will do the job

    You might the be the first person to say this. The 2020 has GPS and a larger screen, and also Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Have you looked into those?

    Yes, I have Android Auto---but when you lose WiFi signal for any feature your SOL !!!

    --I MUCH preferred having the GPS navigation INCLUDED in my stereo box in my 2016 (No Phone Needed)
    --another thing I miss is my CD player too

    UPDATE---- Great news !!! I was able to remove the stick-on pin-striping yesterday after washing my truck.
    I first started to use a blow dryer on low, slowing peeling it off with ease --- because it was so easy to remove I tried the next stripe without the blow dryer and BINGO---it came off just as easy !!

    I had a double-line pin-stripe all around the vehicle ----- it took me 10 minutes if that to remove all of it !!

    I then wiped her down with Goo-Be-Gone, then a wax compound to smooth her out-----SHE LOOKS BEAUTIFUL !!!!

    I promise it's there, I've used it. Dig a little more, you'll be happy when you find it.

    I just looked at my dashboard in my vehicle
    I pressed the Map button and I get this message "Navigation App not installed"--- ???

    is this something I would have to install thru my phone to show up on the computer panel in my truck ?

    I'm old school so I have no idea

    Wierd, maybe someone else can chime in, but I didn't realize ANY TRDs wouldn't have Nav on them. Maybe the dealer forgot to set it up?? I'm really stumped, I'm pretty dang sure you should have it.

    What TRD do you have? TRD Offroad navigation is a option. TRD Offroad Premium navigation is standard.

    Perhaps that's why then. I have Premium, and the previous 4Runner was Premium as well.

    Than you should have the navigation. I’m pretty sure all premium models have navigation.
