    I have been waiting to see pictures of those CBI brackets on a 5th Gen 4-Runner. Now that I know they look good I will order them.

    Thanks. I have a valentine one but I thought the hidden mount would let you not have the monitor in the window.

    Here it was in my Tacoma:

    Yeah. I've always wished I could completely hide it and build it in to the truck

    You may have no clue, but any idea if the mirror bracket is the same as on the tacoma? I'm thinking about trying to transfer over my rear view mirror riser.

    Havik, what switch did you buy that fits in the factory blank on the dash? The light switch I got from CBI is huge and is not going to fit in the factory slot.

    That front bumper looks awesome and is definitely on my wish list for 2017.

    Love the wheels...how was the pricing on the powder coating? Did you do it yourself? I want black wheels but not sure if just to buy new rims or not.

    Is that the 2500 x 2500 one that they list? It looks like a easy install is it? Great looking runner

    That is what i was worried about if it was to long. Thanks. Did you order it from ARB? I've been looking for a sale or a cheaper place to order it from.I have a baja rack i'm sure the mounts are sold for it to. Thanks

    So just the weight of the SSS front bumper weighed it down enough to rub the tires slightly? Beautiful Runner by the way.

    Hey great lights how did you wire your top bar? I have a 42" to put on my Baja Rack but i am really afraid to drill holes in the rain gutter to get the wires in. Do you have any pics on the route you took? Any info helps. Thanks

    I got the 2000 x 2500 . It is just about 4"s smaller on both ends of my Baja Rack. No extra noise from it surprisingly. Love it

    Great build Havik! I enjoyed reading through this whole thread. Would you ever consider replacing the grille with the TRD Pro garnish?

    Nice ride Havik. I really like what you've done. I thought about PC'ing my wheels too. How are they holding up?


    Couple more questions: What did you end up doing with the 3" lift when you decided to go to the Adjustable coil overs? Toytec is right up the street from me. I went with the one you decided to http://toyteclifts.3dcartstores.com/3-Lift-W-Bilstein-5100-Front-Coilovers-FJ4RunnerGX_p_365.html

    I want to add a winch as well but don't want to lose the height and go back to the rake. Wondered if you decided to outright sell them or if Toytec worked something out with you?
