    Hello,
    1st time 4th generation owner. Super clean truck (except for the smoker smell it has)
    Hope all are well. My XSP has 80,000 miles on it. It's toyota certified. I've owned a 3rd generation 4Runner and a 2008 tacoma. My question is what do you guys feel maintenance wise is needed at 80,000? Is this leather/suede hard to take care of? What could I do for the cig. Smoke smell. Thanks

    Regarding the cigarette smell, put a small 8oz perforated bag of ground coffee under all of the seats for a couple of weeks. Shampoo the seats as well and you should be good.

    80k you don't really need to do anything, since its certified every major item has already been checked by the dealer to see if it needs replacement

    Check your owners manual it should include the mileage maintenance items.

    Thanks for the info. I like the coffee idea. My 3rd generation had 100+ on it, however my tacoma (4.0) was low mileage when I sold it.
    I do have another question. My XSP has the 20 inch wheels. Im not familiar with this large of a wheel. Seems like it floats a little. Could just be the width. I was able to replace the AC panel bulbs thanks to this forum. Appreciate that. I was thinking about replacing factory shocks with the 5100, I also wanted to take some rake out the front. Your guys thoughts? Thanks. Take care

    all good ideas, before you pull the trigger its good to think about future plans for the vehicle so you can pick the best option

    Thanks. I think my tires are probably the culprit. They have 1/4 tread left. Apparently something the local toyota dealer thought was a go on the check list. Are the 5100 shocks good for additional height on the front as far as ride? Money is an issue lol. Don't have alot right now. I have good local mechanic, so I'm taking it there for a second once over. So an odd thing. When I replaced the AC panel bulbs I noticed that there were no screw bolts holding the radio bracket. Is this an odditie?

    Mine with 5100's all around. Mine are set to the middle setting and it leveled out the front a lot better.

    Thanks for the post. That's what I was looking for. I like the look. Where you able to go up a size in tire up front? If you wanted to. I like my 20 inch wheels however, I would like more rubber surrounding them.
