    I’m sure once they release there will be an email, stay tuned. I’ll be picking up another for sure for my second key.

    Red Dot is lightest spot on tire. Should be next to valve stem for balance purposes.

    Kudos to discount tire for that. To be honest, I didn’t like their work very much. Not the way they lifted the car (four jacks) and not that they used two of my green valve stem caps and two new black ones. But… balance came out pretty good to be honest. No shimmying.

    Also, those dots erase and it’s bound to get lost over time (wheel repair, etc). So… I just wonder why they would ignore it.

    incorrect, the yellow is the lightest spot on the tire. Red indicates its high spot

    I gotta have my tunes.

    I fondly recall getting my parents old 1988 Buick Park Avenue in the early 2000's. Drove it for a couple of years before the injection control unit died. Red velvet interior with the 3.8 V6. I loved that car. Hella sexy. My wife haaaaaated it. Such a grandma car but it had the premium sound system and it was quick. I was able to direct swap the head unit into my S15 and even with the stock S15 speakers, it was so much better.

    The new 4R is also being compared to the last car I drove, a Ford Expedition XLT. The Expedition system is also much better sounding than the 4R. Much more low end available and clearer mids and highs.

    Finally gave the car for a complete suspension parts replacement. It drove like a damn boat on high seas. The shocks were complete gone and literally made the car sway while stationary even when another vehicle just passed.
    New controls arms, sway links, bushings, tie rods and shocks. Everything OEM. Expensive both in terms of parts and labor.
    While at it, asked the mechanic to grease the shaft etc.

    LFD X-Bars will solve that issue pronto. Don't bother getting the fairing bar. The feet/claws of the Thule box won't fit around the fairing, but it will clear the antennae.

    All I did today is drive to work...and check shipping status for my wheels (yeah, I decided to be like everyone else and go with pro style wheels but fn's since they're 8"). took a gamble that dark gunmetal will look good on a black 4runner (because black on black is overdone to me...and I wanted gloss not matte finish)

    I dont know how much weight your going put in the cargo box but its going to scratch your roof. You'll need to add other bars to avoid scratching the top. Keep the OEM bars under it so when it sags it touches those. I had some old Thule bars but had to buy the Thule raised carrier feet & cargo box
    I am rocking the XL (free upgrade from rack attack - bought the Large & when I picked it up they were out = Free Upgrade XL:yes:)

    I ran a large Thule on factory bars from Maine to DC and back last summer, the clamps almost touched when tightening them but once tight, they didn't touch the roof. When I installed the bars I kept them as high as I could. We just had a bunch of camping stuff up there (tent, chairs, tarps, sleeping bags and whatnot).

    Thanks everyone,

    I actually took the box on an adventure yesterday. Drove about 80 miles on gravel.

    The box did bounce around and hit the roof, only a slight dent by the antenna. I was more annoyed by the sound than anything else. I had at least 130lbs in the box. It’s rated for 160lbs, had four 70 liter duffel bags that fit very easily.

    I’m just going to plan on getting the Thule bars and side clasps like Kolter mentioned. What’s another 500 bucks ‍♂️

    Does anyone have this Thule bars on the oem rails? I’m most likely going to get 53” bars so I have room for another box or basket.

    I have a much older (1997) Thule that I put on the OEM Toyota rails. It was a very close fit, even after swapping out some Thule parts to give the clamps enough clearance from the roof.

    Here's a link to my install: https://www.4runners.com/threads/mounting-thule-rooftop-box-on-oem-cross-bars.30077/#post-463935
