    i have a brand new 4runner. And I just noticed this mod sticker on the door. Any idea why this would be there before I've ever had it in to a dealer?

    I have the same thing on my new '19. I just assumed they all get it by default at the factory since they don't know what ones get port installed options like running boards and the like?

    I have one too but I’d have to look at it to see what it says. I think any port added options that add weight to the vehicle take away from the GVWR and that’s what that sticker is meant to represent.

    So if they install running boards at port they'd put a new sticker on noting the reduced capacity? Seems like that would be the time to place the 1st sticker. Hmm...

    Skid plate, and exhaust tip perhaps? I can't think of anything else that woulda been a 20lb add-on. Maybe luggage rack cross-bars?

    No idea what it could have been. Stock skid plates, no exhaust tip, no rear cargo slide deck, no moon roof/sun roof. Only the cross bars and running boards.

    I didn’t want an add on stuff cause I knew I was just going to be doing my own thing to it and adding stuff I wanted

    Now there is a safety recall on that same sticker. I got mine in the mail this past week. You don't have to go to the dealer though, the sticker is included in the recall letter. You just put it over the old one. Mine was not in the 1% allowed error rate. It may not involve all vehicles.

    Just a standard one page safety recall. The sticker looks exactly like the on pictured above but the weights will be different.
