    Just bought a 2008 4runner about a week ago. Find you guys on Tacomaworld, thought I would say hello. Looking forward to learning about the 4runner and some cool easy mods for it.

    The runner is actually for my son. He needed a vehicle to get to college and back. So mods are going to be slow, but roof rack, small lift and new tires are in the future. Already built a platform in the back to hide survival gear and tools. I'll have to get some pictures to post.

    Nice platform! I was thinking of building something like this for my wifes for when we went camping to allow easier access to stuff stacked on the bottom.

    Thank you, I still need to build the doors for it. It took about 4 hours to build, including picking up the materials and eating a quick bit.

    Thank you. It's a big improvement, and better organized. My son is happy about how it turned out.
