    Another one to consider. I looked at these a while back when researching crossbars.

    There is an option of hunting down a set of the 2010 to 2013 4Runner Trail roof rails. Their crossbars sit a couple inches higher then the normal roof rail crossbars. I have them on my 2021 and run a Thule Sidekick and there's room to spare under the bars.

    Really, in the Aviation Industry it's the Red dot & there is NO Yellow dot on A/C tires. So I am corrected in the auto industry ,eh!

    Much appreciated, looked for these years ago and they were originally only sold in Canada. Have not looked since so may have missed it.

    I traded in a '22 Explorer ST with the Bang & Olufsen system for my '23 Limited with the JBL system. The B&O was MUCH better than the 4R's JBL...

    Really excited to meet James in August. This guy's A-Trac videos and his 4Runner Vs. Jeep video convinced me to go for the 4Runner.

    Man I wish it was my cabin! We were staying there for a few days while visiting Yosemite last summer. Nautical Blue is a good looking color but ugh, maintaining it is as bad as maintaining black paint.

    Drove to work today in the "nor'easter" in 2wd, traction control off (pushed the button for 7 seconds while in park)...Toyo AT3's, no issues.

    The 4runner is better in snow with these tires than my F150 was with Grabber ATx's and Falken AT3W's (to be fair, the F150 makes a lot more power though).
