    Looks good. 4runners make white look good.

    What are the little fender guards?

    I was worried that KM3s would be heavier than my KO2s. But the KM3 is actually 0.5 lb lighter. So I sold my KO2s on Craigslist. Time tp set up an appointment with Discount Tire for the KM3s :)

    You get auditory satisfaction in the way of added wind noise when cruising on the highway. You will also keep pressing you window switches to double check if any window is down.

    Driving with all the windows slightly down, the vape smoke just flows through the car. Looks super cool.

    Not only can your keep the windows down when it’s raining but also you can leave your windows down in the car whenever it’s parked and nobody will know.

    Sold my suspension take offs, KO2s, grill and OEM skid plates for $1,750. Now I need to add 300 bucks to get the KM3s.

    Smokers can ash out the window. Its awesome to have when it snows. Same thing as rain, you can crack the window without anything coming in. Sometimes its helpful to keep the car from getting foggy. But it certainly can help circulate fresh air into the car during inclement weather. I prefer the stick on kind. I don't like screwing with the felt for the inchannel ones. The inchannel ones do look 100% better

    I'd like to underscore the value of having more options to mitigate fogging. The different approaches don't work equally well in all conditions, so it's nice to have different solutions available.

    I live in FL, here the primary use is to crack the windows to vent hot air in the summer so it's only 1000 degrees, rather than 2000 degrees inside your truck.

    Yes, in places with bright sun and big temperature swings, being able to leave the windows cracked can make a big difference. The shades keep the rain out in case of a passing shower, and make it less obvious that the window isn't fully closed.

    Do you have a build thread? Specifically, what lift, tires size, rear, bumper and skids do you have. Looks great! I'm about to outfit my new to me Limited. Thanks

    Brought it home today. Ever since I had sold my '22 TRD Pro I've regretted it(Especially since we hadn't needed to sell it at all.) and wanted to get another 4Runner. Well, that day was today! Picked up this '24 Ice Cap TRD ORP.
