    BTW the Tahara plant doesn't make those components, 3rd party vendor does which I know you're fully aware of & I understand your frustration too!:hattip: & yes Toyota needs to press them on their reliability issues.:yes: Never had any issues W/2008 &2012 FJ's or the 2015 Tacoma I owned.

    So quick question: I'm needing to trim the front bumper a little bit (wheel well area) with the oversized tires I've got on my lift. Never done this before. I've watched a few vids on HOW to do that, and looks relatively simple. But any pointers from ye olde soothsayers would be much appreciated.

    TIA!

    What’s up everyone! I am currently in the market for a 5th gen, found one at a local dealer. 2014 Silver SR5 base with 81k miles for $24,888. Is this a good deal? It looks really clean and completely bone stock. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Green auto body tape. Blue painters tape can pull up paint off plastic pretty easily. Green auto body tape is a little easier on paint when you pull it off. It also will help the paint and plastic not gum up and chip as you cut it. Measure twice and cut once FOR SURE! Post it when you are done! Ive cut in a handful of bumpers and it never gets easier! Triple check any directions and resources you have before cutting.

    Are your Toyo's factory size or larger? Looks good.

    What type of rubbing do you have when you are off-road? Make any trims or cuts?

    Little more than 2 weeks in. Ceramic 5%tint, remote start, rb20 slim steps, eibach suspension (just struts and shocks) no serious off roading, and trd pro grille treatment. Thinking head unit and speakers next or a set of 285s, suspension guy said they'll fit now

    Put on some emblem overlays. I think the c-pillar emblems and the "4Runner" look great. I'm not 100% on the red Toyota logos though.

    Sweet looking stance and overall rig! I'm with you on maybe not digging the red stuff though, I'd go black (or dark gray - whatever the other emblem color is)- that looks so great with your primary paint color.

    I agree with your observation.

    I'd appreciate info on the wheels you're running. They look great. Thanks

    Got tinted with 3M ceramic... tried to stay legal but I think I might bite the bullet and go darker.

    Went with 30 front, 50 rears

    Debating on getting 70 front and darkening the rear to 20 throughout... keep the fronts at 30

    Definitely much cooler in the car now...

    Go darker. I did. Sure, I'm rolling illegal as hell, but in Texas I need it to block the heat. The summers last 6 months here!

    I am thinking of going 20% on top of my ceramic lol.. so I'll have to talk to the guy at the tint shop .. most of all is I want to keep it consistent between all windows whereas right now I am notice that my fronts are lighter ..

    I am going to be in Nevada for the next year so definitely wanna go darker but I don't want to be like my friend who has to roll down his window to make a turn

    I have to roll mine down, but only at night on streets that are not well light. During the summer time, it doesn't get dark until almost 8:30-ish PM. My old ass is in inside by then so I don't worry. But in the winter months when it gets dark by 5pm, then yeah, it can suck...sort of.

    But you'll adjust and figure it out. The upside is: I have tons of privacy and my truck stays A LOT cooler when it's 109 degree's outside. Plus, it makes the truck look really freak'n cool.

    Just installed the black rear valence since I did the front a while back to match the look.

    That's one of the first thoughts that came to mind. If the Toyota logo was lower on the front, it might not remind me of Rudolph.

    Brightened up my cargo area/interior. I don’t like the blue white LED look so I finally got some warm whites and the cargo area + center dome are significantly better now. However the non-overhead cargo area light still bothered me and I’ve been thinking lots about wiring a light in there as others have done… but at Walmart today there was a very small warm white led light bar for $6 that caught my eye for simple battery power push button operation Velcro’d to the headliner. Easy peasy, looks well enough, very practical, I’m happy.
