    Recently completed my C4 bumper w/ high clearance additions. I opted to cut the bumper as close to the additions as possible to avoid adding door molding to give it a cleaner look.

    Finally got rid of all the chrome. Added these black door handles covers and also plastic dip around the handle edges. The cover exposes theses areas so I wanted them black.

    Added the C4 windshield washer tank skid. I also added a bit of black spray paint on the washer tank to make it blend in.

    This is the truck that I wish Toyota would build, but they never will. By the way, it keeps getting better.

    When my lower control arms seized up and my shocks blew, I spent close to 7500 bucks redoing the entire suspension lift, CV axles, LCAs on my 2013, so large amounts of money spent are not a stranger to me.

    What is the biggest difference (if any) that you notice between the x-reas and the new shocks?

    I just got a 2021 limited nightshade and I really wanna add some things to make it look more rugged (nerf bars, a rack/ladder?) but I'm not sure what all I want to do.

    If I have to take the x-read out for a lift, then I want to make sure that it's worth it and doesn't affect how smooth it drives.

    imho the xreas was smooth like a Cadillac on the highways . but it didn’t absorb big off road bumps well off-road.

    The kings are progressive and absorbs bumps very well at different speeds. It has a firmer plant feel while your driving and taking turns.

    Swapped out my plastic dipped chrome garnish with the attitude black one. I wanted something with more of a shine as I now have black shined handle covers.

    plastic dipped over chrome

    Still need to add the 4runner emblems. They came prepainted

    Gonna probably keep the X-REAS because I don't want to mess with a good thing.

    I really want to get new tires but the 7in width is bothering me. Did you ever do any research on the best tires for the stock limited wheels?

    Leaning towards the ko2's or toyos but not sure they come in that size.

    Unless I need to just get new wheels altogether...but I do like the nightshade wheels.
