    Question for all who have a big rear bumper with spare wheel.
    How did you solve the problem with the rear camera, as it seems to not work anymore as the bumper will hide it, correct?

    cheers

    This is a custom built bumper you can find this runner on Instagram by looking up helmorp. (I think it started out as a limited)

    I think the bumper started out as a pelfreybilt but, it's definitely custom because the fogs are from a limited bumper. And the skid plate isn't the same size.

    They're 315's aka 12.5 wide, and 35" tall. Takes a 3" lift and a healthy amount of trimming, plus just the right offset on the wheels.

    I got rear ended a couple years ago by a kid in daddy's BMW in my 04 best gen Taco. A couple scratches on my hitch. Punched a hole through his radiator and "customized" his hood pretty good.

    Excellent timing, though... I had *just* lifted it, so I took it to a shop and has daddy's insurance pay for an alignment... :devil:

    My rear camera works, but I only have about 60% visibility! Better than nothing...when the little red line on the camera is even with the white line on the ground or wherever I want to stop is about even with my spare tire.

    Not seeing many front bumpers for 10-13 Runners. Just Demello, CBI, Shrockworks, and ARB. Are there more who make them for these years? Any leads there? Much appreciated.

    Snail I just put in an order for running rails. I'm curious is that the powder coat they offer or did you take it somewhere else to get powder coated??? Looks like a matte black if it is.

    His were custom ordered LineX'ed. Our matte black PC comes out similar sheen and similar style texture to the black plastic trim pieces on the vehicle so they look right at home

    Hey Eric, you got a front bumper that will fit a 10-13 Runner?

    I believe my current 14+ front should fit fine with trimming the plastic cover similar to how we do on the 14+, however, I havent had a chance to test fit it first hand.

    Southern Speed has suspended making their rear bumper. They emailed me that they may start making them again in the future, she wasn't sure.

    Is plasti-dip a mod?!
    Anybody got pics of bolt on sliders before they went on? I’m looking for the type that kinda wrap around and support the frame (like mobtowns tacoma bolt on sliders), not just on the side of the frame. Motown doesn’t have them for the runner, as of yet, and I can’t tell from online pictures how they bolt up and attach. Any guidance here is appreciated.

    Same here, I just pulled the trigger on a set of sliders from mobtown off road for my Taco, loving the fully boxed engineered design by Joe and his team. Though I haven't done a whole bunch of digging, As far as I know that's a design unique to Mobtown Sliders. In looking into the design Mobtown C-Clamps, and Beam Clamps are used for extra strength and support. Hopefully Joe and his crew can make a run of sliders for the 5gen 4runners, would definitely buy a set for the wife's TRD OR T4R

    Yeah, I really like the design of theirs. I messaged them on TW, but they don’t make 4runner sliders. I keep hoping it will be added to their stuff soon.

    Got in contact with Adam at 4x innovations. Pulled the trigger on a set of weld-on w/kick out sliders. Great value as they ran me $265 for the sliders and shipping. Ordered them on 11/2/2017, and they arrived today around 12:00, hella fast shipping! Pretty stoked and can't wait to get them mounted on the wife's T4R.

    I know 4x innovations now offers a bolt-on option, also mobtown offroad now makes 100% bolt-on no drill sliders for the 5th Gen T4R. I have the mobtown offroad sliders on my Taco and love them, if i didn't already by the 4x innovations set, i would have gone with the Mobtown Offroad route!
