    A few things here and there. Still dreaming up stuff
    The first MOD I would make and I really think you will be happy about it when you will need it at some point. Get better tires. At good set of AT will make a world of difference in the snow and yuck weather. Welcome to the family of crazy nut loving 4runners junkies.

    Now don't get to use to the idea on not having to go the the repair shop that often, I know you love your Mechanic. I know you will miss that and only time you will see a shop is for oil changes pretty much. I know this will be a drag.

    Welcome aboard. As to tires, I agree that the stock tires are not great. I ran Toyo Open Country A/Ts on our '08 Mitsu Outlander for over 6years. The first set lasted 60,000 trouble free miles and the second had 30,000 on when I traded the car. Never had a flat, proved great at highway speeds as well as miles of off-road trails, in snow, mud and you name it.
    Check out a set. - Ted

    This is definitely the plan BFG KO2's are on my radar

    Initially was thinking Toyo Open Country but now I'm leaning towards BFG KO2's

    They're great tires too. One other thing, if you're in deer, elk, moose, etc. county, stick a pair or two of deer whistles up front. Might save you a smashed grille, or a big critter coming thru your windshield. Happened to a friend of mine, and the critter was pregnant too. No Fun! - Ted

    Well, we've had deer in nearby fields look up at us as we passed by, and some turn and scamper off. Admittedly, they are no good at low off-road speeds but I'm more afraid of hitting a deer, elk, moose, caribou at 60 mph than I am at 10-20 mph. -m Ted
