    After owning my 4Runner now I seem to notice every other 4Runner on the road I look at all the modifications others have done some of them where hits and others were big misses I guess it's all in what you like and what your wallet can bear so I will be doing things slowly where budgets allow . I invite you to follow my progress 20161028_134120.jpg

    Is your first mod upgrading with those trail wheels on a SR5?

    I have a bull bar that I want to install on the front but it may make the front look too busy and I have heard that in even minor accidents they cause more damage then if they were not even on the vehicle...Bull bars equal damage multipliers

    unfortunately this is pretty true, they're aesthetically pleasing to some but they honestly don't offer any protection from any sort of serious impact, they'll end up increasing either the depth or surface area of impact if you do hit something or get hit

    OP, I agree with what you said about bullbars making the front too busy. But if you already have it, might as well give it a try.

    the only problem I foresee is I will have to cut holes through the grill to mount brackets through to the core support
    Maybe I'll do a mock fitting and take some pictures

    Got a set of OEM mud flaps for the running boards you need these to keep the dirt from the tires slinging up onto the top of them and making them collectors of road debris
