    Blacked out badges, window deflectors, smoked 3rd brake light. I have a Borla muffler on order as well as some color matched engine cover stickers. I'll be painting the stock wheels soon as well. Falken tires in the fall as well.
    Here's mine. 2019 SR5 with only 8,000 miles on her after almost 2 years. I knew I wanted a 4Runner and when I saw one in Nautical Blue I knew I just had to have one. DSCN5584.jpg DSCN5583.jpg

    This is an uncommon color IMO, but such a great looking one. I think @totmacher rocks a blue one.

    Stock wheels look great.. I'm convinced to plati dip instead of getting new rims, spend $$ on tires instead.

    Thanks. I like the design of the SR5 wheels but hated the silver. I painted them with Rustoleum gloss black.

    So I kinda hate the look of the SR5 wheels. Then I saw them plasti dipped and I love em. Strange what a color change does for it.

    It is a great color. I had a Barcelona red Taco and was going to get a 4Runner in the same color. Can’t go wrong with either, IMO.

    I love the Red too but I had red '93 and '05 Grand Cherokees so wanted a change. Once I saw the Nautical Blue I fell in love.

    Car looks sick!! Is it lifted? Also, how is the wind noise from the roof rack. A rack is on my list of upgrades

    Thanks! Yeah, it’s lifted 2.5” with a bilstein kit and the rack isn’t that bad. My venture edition came with a Yakima basket which was probably the same, if not louder than this full rack.

    Have always loved 4Runners, my best man has had two. Decided I was tired of my '09 Taco Access Cab with the dog and fiancé and knew there was only one option! Always wanted a blue one and had to jump thru a few hoops to secure this one. Just happened to be the only blue SR5 premium within 100 miles of me. Can't stress how great the color looks in the sunlight (as you all know) wheels to come next!

    DSCN5583.jpg Mine looked just like yours and it was also the only one around. It had 1 mile on it! I have blacked out all the silver. The stock wheels look so much better black.

    What paint did you use for the running boards? What was the process like? Thinking of doing the same

    I used Rustoleum semi gloss. I took the boards off and removed the end caps. I got masking tape under the edge of the rubber on top of the boards and masked them off. That was a pain. Lightly scuffed the silver and gave it 4 coats. It's been holding up very well for about a year and a half now. I used spray truck bed liner for the roof rails. It's tougher than paint and I like the slight texture. I would do the boards using that if I were to do it over again just so they match.
