    Hi, all! My name is Chuck and I've been driving 4Runners for years; not so much off-road as because they're just totally dependable transportation for our crappy Michigan roads. :) I always like to do a little minor personal customizing so I keep an eye on the forums for ideas, but never came across this one before - it looks like you've got a great group here and I'm glad to be able to join.

    Looking forward to a lot of great pics and ideas from your community.

    welcome! those TRD rims are pretty awesome. I just joined the other day after I traded in my Taco for a 4Runner, came from the Tacoma World side .

    I used to live in Ann Arbor a few years ago. Have to say those Michigan roads were terrible. Barely could get 30k out of a set of tires. 2 years of living there I went through 3 sets of tires and 2 sets of suspension from everything.

    I am in the same boat of just doing minor custom tweaks to set mine apart, really don't want to screw with the reliability to much.

    Thanx. Today I installed Xenon Depot HIDs in my low beams and a pair of Osram 9005 lamps in the DRLs. I've been watching YT vids for two weeks wondering if I'd have any problems but things dropped in to place in less than an hour! No routing problems, no battery removal, no polarity issues. All sweet!
