    I recently purchased and installed one on my ‘19 ORP. I was concerned I would feel like I wasted money, but this has seriously been a great mod. The throttle feels much more responsive and predictable now. You don’t have to jam the pedal to the floor, but rather adjust the mode to your liking/driving style. This has helped tremendously with the Toytec lift and 285/70 KO2’s I put on, as I slightly adjusted the mode and the truck no longer feels sluggish at all.

    You are technically correct but it makes a HUGE difference. it makes it feel like a new animal. Feels like it has way more power. Toyota designed a 1 second delay for some reason into the pedal and it is extremely annoying. The pedal commander eliminates that delay so it feels way more peppy and instantaneous. Best money I've spent on the 4runner

    As someone who works in automotive development I can tell you that is not true. Nobody designs a full second delay in throttle response, that’s not a thing. But even if it was, that delay would be programmed into the ECM for how it should open the throttle and it’s literally impossible for a pedal commander to change any ECM maps.


    Edit - I’m not trying to talk you out of it or put you down or anything like that, if you’re happy with your purchase that’s great. I’m just trying to give some factual information about what it can and cannot do.

    I feel like the very beginning of the pedal is actually touchy, not overly, but not sluggish at ALL.
    When starting from a stop, the 4R seems to be very responsive.
    But, I feel the middle range of the pedal is quite sluggish and unresponsive feeling. And I would like to get rid of that.
    Those of you running the commander, does it seem to fix that middle section of pedal travel, without making the beginning of travel a hair trigger?
    It seems like if all its doing is cranking up the entire pedal range, that beginning part will be waaay too touchy.
    hopefully they have a bit of a curve programmed into it.

    I would have returned the 4runner to the dealership or sold it if I had not discovered the pedal commander. It may not be a full second but its definitely a delay in the pedal and extremely sluggish.

    Im gonna be doing a regear soon too which will add some pep.

    All depends on how heavy your foot is. For my lead foot, about .5 when I am not being good.
