    What sorts of things drive you crazy when you see them on a 4Runner?

    Bedliner painted body panels
    Be-dazzled wheels (fake beadlocks)
    Tire tread halfway down the sidewall
    Lifts that retain the same amount of factory rake
    RTT's on every damn 4Runner you see going down the road (do you people really camp that often?)

    I hate that shit! I went through a carwash in Florida that applied it in February. Dirt still sticks like glue. I can't get it off. It makes the tires look like crap!

    I was guilty of this with my '03. I really didn't take good care of that truck. It gave me 160,000 trouble free miles, if you don't count the hub bearing I ignored until it grenaded and took out my brakes and pretty much my entire steering knuckle

    Anything more than a 6” lift with stock wheels and tires. Plus, chrome everywhere on the vehicle.

I tried to get a pic for you all but he was flying down the road, assuming he was late for his tip frosting appointment at the Salon...yes, I am assuming the key fob thing but you know I am right!)

    That "rake" is in place so that my truck doesn't look like a squatting dog when I load it up full of people and gear. I laugh at people who say "How many hockey pucks do I need to level muh truck?"

    Here's a list of things that totally amaze me that people spend money on: bull bars, pro grills, raptor lights, hatch ladders to nowhere (because they also have a ladder in their RTT), pedal commander/sprint boosters, "cold air intakes".

    Also in the same vein as RTT's, people that leave shovels, axes, (and other junk they've never actually used) attached to their roof racks to look cooler. Settle down MacGyver, you don't need to do a recovery at your 9-5 as an insurance salesman. Take that shit off and leave it in your garage until you're on a trip.

    But how often do you really have it loaded enough to squat the rear end 1.75"?

    And who cares if it does have a small amount of squat when you do have it loaded?
