    Blacked out grill and rear emblem. More on the way!
    I purchased a 2014 4Runner Limited in January 2020. I'm coming from German engineering and I must say that I am really impressed with my 4R. What a well built machine. The only "mods" I have done are Plasti-Dip my grill and rear emblem. As you can see, it's not great. I will redo it after I figure out how to smooth out the underlying blemishes on the chrome. After I figure that out, I'll Plasti-Dip all chrome. Big picture, I'll lift it, get TDR style wheels and 33" tires. One big flaw in these is lighting. I'll upgrade the headlights, add a light bar and go from there.

    Thanks! It seems like your 4R might be what I initially aim for. How do you like your wheel & tire set up?

    I like them, I have the Cooper STT Pro’s 265/70/17 for now but eventually I want to go bigger. I’m fixing to install a daystar spacer kit 2.5/1.5.
