    Hello everyone. I apologize in advance if this is the wrong area, but I wanted to share a mod I designed and have been selling over on TFR.org.


    I got sick of having to crawl up to the front, put the key in the ignition and roll the rear window up or down to regulate heat while camping in my 4R, so I developed a kit that allows you to roll the rear window up and down with the ignition off as well as pop the rear hatch while camping.
    (video is from a 4th gen, operation is identical)

    I had to buy extra material when making the first kit, so I decided to put a few kits together and sell them. The reception was great on the kits, so I decided to market some more kits.
    Kits include:
    Harness A
    Harness B
    (pre terminated connectors on each harness)
    Up-Down DPDT Switch
    Momentary SPST Button
    6 zip ties
    2 spare Toyota panel clips (just in case you damage yours when removing rear door panel)
    1 spare Toyota interior trim clip (not shown; these are the pink compression clips) for 4th gens
    Full instructions

    *Note, kits supplied with a slightly different wire than shown. I switched to a smaller wire for easier installation*
    Installation shouldn't take more than an hour and there is no soldering. Very simple. I have a 10+ page PDF install specific to 4th gen and 5th gen installs with pictures and wiring charts.
    Price is $50 shipped, and I have these harnesses built up and ready to go. Let me know if interested- jessetoedtman@gmail.com

    Big props to the OP and his kit. I bought one off of T4r.org and installed it, slightly modified the install to put everything on the hatch. Works great and is super handy for camping in the back because you can lock and unlock all the doors and run the rear window right from the hatch, no key needed. OP is very accessible and trustworthy, fast shipping too. Highly recommended.

    Is there any reason this won't work on a Gen 3 4Runner?

    The rear window function would work just fine, but the pop wont work as it doesnt have an electric motor release like the 4 and 5th gens have.

    Nice, I like it. That's what I'm going to do. I don't like drilling holes in my new 4runner.
    Thanks for the idea!

    That's why I did it this way, no way I was drilling holes and this way it's removable. Took a little more effort to route it this way but it still went pretty quick. Let me know if you have any questions.
