    Thanks! I’m super stoked. Its been amazing so far! It actually was scheduled to enter processing on 9/6 but never officially did. That date kept getting pushed back until it was actually on the truck heading to dealership.

    My runner status changed to F. I wonder how long it takes before it changes to G. It has few port installs

    Got a toyota app notification this morning around 7:30a and another around 11:15am. Dealership called me ~5min ago to let me know the truck has arrived, and I can pick it up tomorrow morning (it has to get inspected, detailed, and my salesperson is off today).

    So some takeaways/theories...
    • I think the app notifications are a decent predictor that the vehicle will be ready "soon" (relative based on the port, your distance to the port, the mode of transportation from the port to your area)
    • I assume each notification is the truck getting turned on
    • First set of notifications (Tuesday) was probably the 4R getting offloaded from the ship and getting port add-ons. Then I'm guessing it waited on a lot for the car carrier.
    • Second set of notifications (this morning) was probably the 4R getting loaded onto the car carrier truck, then offloading at the dealership

    Good to be back in a 4Runner. Had an 05 Limited V8 until 2018 and missed it immediately after selling it.

    2023 ORP with moonroof and sliding cargo deck

    I'm in Northern Alabama, so this was a purchase through a Southeast Toyota dealership.
    Ordered Monday, Sept. 26. It was already on the ship and my dealership was able to claim it for me (is that the Allocation process?).
    Toyota App first notification was Sunday morning, Oct. 2. I presume that is when it hit port in Jacksonville, Florida. Got a few more notifications through Thursday, Oct. 6.
    Last app update was yesterday, Oct. 6, at 5:29 p.m. - must have been getting loaded on a truck.
    I thought I would see it late next week, but the salesman called me at 9:30 this morning, Oct. 7, saying it had arrived at the dealership and I was welcome to come make the purchase today.

    Easy process and obviously extremely fortunate on the short wait time.

    I’m actually trading in my Tacoma for a new 4-Runner and was wondering if anyone has an idea of time it takes to travel from Japan to the port in Newark? It left Japan 09/23, and my dealer says they expect to have it at dealer by end of October or early November. That seems a little quicker than what I’ve read. Just wondering if anyone has any info from their experience.

    My 4Runner left 9/21 and arrived in Long Beach port on 10/3.

    So it sounds about right.

    It came off the boat and arrived to the dealer next day, but I don't think they had any port add ons

    Followed what some of you had said & added it to my Toyota app. Got a notification this morning that it now has 3 miles on it & had “multiple alarms”, which my Tundra has any time doors, etc are open.

    My guess would be it’s either at the port for its few add-ons or on a truck. Anyone have any insight?

    Nope it's exactly that. It's been driven 3 miles and had multiple break in attempts already. Cursed.

    Ha! It’s just a confusing process. When I got my Tundra back April, I was able to access the virtual VSpec & do that coding trick.

    I’ve got a few notifications today but when I contacted the dealer, it says it’s still in Allocation.

    I know Toyota hasn’t been updated quite as much but she says it’s still on track for the 21st-24th of this month.

    Just felt like my process with the tundra was a little more straight forward due to being able track it easier.

    Which port was your 4-runner at? Mine is scheduled to be at Newark on the east coast on October 22nd. Just trying to get a feel for how long it could possibly be. I only have running boards being installed at port, nothing else.

    Mine was in San Diego. There was nothing being done, it was just stuck there. The salesperson said that it just takes time and then it’s put on a train the rest of the way. So it was a long process.

    Found some details on the ship that was carrying my 4Runner from Japan to Portland, OR. Dates line up with what dealer told me - left Japan 9/26, port arrival 10/10. So looks like it took day and half to offload in Portland. I have the Toyota app set up for notifications but no hits yet. According to dealer it’s scheduled for port processing on 10/17 then on to train. So hopefully should know more next week. Here’s the ship details if anyone is interested in tracking future shipments.

    Vesselfinder.com. They have a world map that shows last known position of ships. I knew mine was supposed to arrive in Portland on the 10th so just started checking all the ships in and around Portland until I found one that originated in Japan, then confirmed that Toyohashi is same location as the factory. I read somewhere that the travel time to east coast ports is 3 weeks. So yours should be close to Newark by now. The yellow tags all seem to be cargo ships on the map. You can zoom in and out on the map. When you click on a ship it will bring up some details on the ship, if you click on the picture on of the ship it will give you more details on last few ports it docked at. Hope that helps.

    I'm at the point where I'm getting multiple Toyota App notifications a day. They were doing things on it all hours of yesterday & early this morning. When I woke up, I had notifications from like 7am yesterday until about 3am this morning.

    My guess is that it's currently getting whatever it needs put on & then will be put on a truck from there. My ETA to hit the dealership is October 21st-24th.

    I noticed yesterday (2nd day of app notifications) that the mileage went from 0-3 & then from 3-4. At some point during the day, tire pressure was added & engine health status was visible. Weird thing is, the tire pressure is sitting at like 52 right now lol.

    I should also note that as of yesterday, I was still in "A" status. My built date was 9/9.

    Does anyone know if the base SR5 trim would get notifications if I put my vin in the app? Or does it have to be a higher trim 4-Runner?

    How was you able to track your ship all the way from Japan? I’ve been on vessel finder and it was very difficult trying to find anything. Mine left Japan Sept. 23rd heading towards Newark. Expected port arrival was Oct. 22nd. I’d love to be able to see where it’s location is.

    This is why I love the internet.

    Mine was delayed at Long Beach Port. Arrived into port 10/4. Doesn't look like it'll process until 10/20.
