    For now I installed on the lower rail. Have to see if that impacts alot on the range or not. Not sure of things get worse when I have the roof cargo box.

    I also installed inside of the roof rack as this antenna can be stolen easily and Denver has increased theft a lot, A LOT.

    Will see..

    I have a 12V socket in the glovebox, no USB. I plugged my dash cam into that socket. The Android head unit included two USB cables that could plug into the back of the unit, one has 6 pins, the other 4 pins. I don't plan to use them.

    I got the front and 2nd row dome pretty easy, but the vanity ones gave me some trouble. When I was jimmying, it felt like I was going to pull the whole thing out lol. Is that just how it is?

    Sadly mine is not even lifted. Just 285s. This TRD Pro roof rack is killing all the clearance. I never had this problem with my TRD ORP and SR5 with 3in front and 2in rear lift or the Limited with 2¼front and 1½in rear lift. If I were to lift the TRD Pro I have to allocate money to change the roof rack :annoyed:

    Since the antenna is only 2 or 3 inches, why not mount it horizontally instead of vertically? That way you won't have to air up/down just to get out of the garage. I seriously doubt mounting it a different way till dramatically impact the signal strength.

    Lay the antenna down so it runs along the roof rack rails. It will also give it a stealth look!

    Did you mean this way?
    20240401_063851.jpg

    That's a good idea. I never thought about it. Have to check if the brackets fit side ways. I might have to use the pipes that goes between top and bottom pipes. Will see. Thank you for the idea :cheers:

    Yes, that is exactly what I meant. You can zip tie it to the roof rack rails....if the bracket won't allow you to lay it on its side. Just mount it without the bracket.

    Beautiful. Jealous of the speaker. The stock 4R sound system really sucks....

    They don't give out pry-tools to you fancy-boys that own Limited's! They probably assume (and rightfully so) that you Limited owners will spend more time in the day-care drop off lane than you'll spend modding or adding stuff onto your 4Runner.

    I always find it surprising. Maybe I had a sucky speaker in last vehicle (honda SUV) but I find the 4runner sound system..good enough. Maybe its a whole lot of audiobooks/podcasts that I listen to, which admittedly don't need good high end sound.

    My favorites are the orange ones that so many vendors are using. One came with my silicone license plate frame, so stepping up game shouldn't be necessary. The same one came with a couple other things I can't even remember.

    After taking over my new-to-me 4R last month I fixed all the wrongs, missing bits and bobs like engine clips, broken second row 12V cover, and broken trailer plug connector. Found/installed missing cargo slide tray, Rad Rubber for missing engine splash guards, lil' paint touch up on some fender chips, Meguiars Scratch-X on the door pin stripes. Treated myself to blackout badging on liftgate chrome, black TRD shift and 4WD knobs for the chipped silver ones, and new floor mats n' cargo liners. Put LaminX on fogs for a day, but then decided to take it off. Anyways, practically good as new...now I can go mess things up on it my OWN self!

    Haha. I can't talk too much shit (or really any at all), my team got knocked out in the 2nd round. I'm a huge KU (Kansas Jayhawks) fan. We played like ass this year, and I'm shocked we got a 4th seed.

    So tell me something...why do they have conference tournaments AFTER the season is ended? Why can't college basketball be like college football, and use their records at the end of the season, instead of going thru all this conference tournament nonsense? The conference games end, here are the final win/loss records, select the teams. My guess is it has to do with money, like most everything else?

    While we are the topic of money. Anyone with ~ 2/2.5 inch of lift notice a change in the amount of time your RPMs go down after letting off the throttle? Like rev hang. Seemed to happen after the kit (or at least I noticed it after the kit was installed). OEM size tires. I posted a separate thread but didn’t get much action. TIA.

    I recently went 2.7” in the front (6112 with b8) and 1.5” in the rear (5160 and b12) and haven’t noticed what you are describing. And I’m still OEM size, but with AT3s.
