    2018 Black TRD Off Road
    Waiting to start
    My daughter just took delivery of her new TRD off road 4 runner and I”m about to make a few mods and would appreciate any suggestions.

    1. Suspension: Looking to fit Kings front and rear (I have them on my Raptor and ride is excellent and they usually come with factory preload to 2” front 1” rear or easily adjusted afterwards.

    2. Tires: I have a set of new BFG 35/12.50/17 which I swapped out from my own truck for 37”s but don’t want to start to chop this little truck up – so was wondering if anyone has fitted 305/70/17 Toyo A/T 2’s to their Gen 5.

    3. Rims: Was thinking of Methods or Fuel Anza D558 which I have had on other vehicles but have seen a few OEM TRD rims on Ebay from Toyota dealers at fair prices and they are hub/lug centric with stock lug nuts fitting. Only concern here is that they are only 7” wide and 4mm as opposed to 15mm offset on the original rims. Would have liked 0 or -6 which the aftermarkets come with but would prefer OEM and the 305 or 295 is just ½” or so wider than recommended rim width so not unduly concerned here.

    4. Front and rear bumper trim panels – would like to remove and paint to match body work. I believe the front is held in on clips

    5. Yota Pro grill – is it flat black or does it come in body color as ours one is metallic black – not a big deal to paint with the bumper trim covers if necessary

    6. Exhaust/tips – don’t wan’t to replace system but would like to chop off downward bend at rear end and either come out rear or side with twin tips

    7. Finally for moment – replace the poor headlamps /halogens and other incandescent with LED’s

    Would really appreciate any photos or links to sites/suppliers
