    Can't stand the KDSS and XREAS systems personally. I always mod my vehicles so they just get in the way and add unnecessary cost when purchasing the vehicle. Best for those that keep their vehicles close to stock IMO

    It’s just a mechanical system. Well, the KDSS system is. For what I use the 4Runner for, it works for me. If I go the route of building a rig for a purpose then I’ll probably opt out of some of the fancier options...or a 1st Gen Tacoma

    I know plenty of people love KDSS in their rigs. We just love TC Long Travel setups more :laughing:

    Anyone have any insight, or Toyota reps that can speak to,6F4F0115-0FE1-4D72-B747-96D6C28E9C70.jpg on the Toyota rack showing on the 2019 4R Pro? Their little blip of video shows it and then a very brief description of the accessory. Just didn’t know if it would be any good compared to the other racks out there.

    Is plasti-dip a mod?!
    It looks just like the roof rack the fj had, I like it looks wise better than the ones now. I have no idea on weight, but it looks sturdier.

    Haven’t looked through the whole thread, but I didn’t see RSG listed for sliders. They just released them a few months ago, and I have been very impressed with the sliders, but more impressed with the company. They have them built and in stock. Ordered mine on a Sunday, received on Friday (bare metal). https://rsgmetalworks.com/

    I've been looking into getting a Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier for my 18 4Runner. Hefty Fab, Pelfreybilt and Expedition One make the list so far.

    Any input on the these Rear Bumpers and the Companies themselves?

    Thanks

    I guess I did. Not the positive response I was hoping for.

    They are listed on the first page of this thread, so I was hoping they were a good choice. Good looking stuff.

    They were.

    To briefly summarize: they took $300,000 worth of payments for orders, stonewalled customers for months, then filed bankruptcy and screwed over a lot of guys. Some people are out $3-5,000.

    Massive thread on TacomaWorld.

    Feel free to place an order, though! LOL!

    Thanks for getting me up to speed. Too bad, they did make good looking stuff.

    I'm glad i did not order earlier and get caught up in the mess. I hope it works out in the end for all......

    That narrows my list for Rear Bumper / Tire Carrier.

    I've read great things about Expedition One.

    Any additional feedback is appreciated on E One and Hefty Fab.
