    It's "used" and comes without an SD Card. But it was the last used one listed on FitCamX's Amazon storefront... If it arrives in good condition I'll be happy.

    I also bought mine "Used" from Amazon advertised as "comes without an SD Card. I was surprised when it arrived that it was brand new and also came with a 64GB SD card. I hope your FITCAMX package is the same! Thanks to the post from Borracho Loco, I can upgrade to a 256 GB SD Card!

    The videos default to 1080, but you can change it to 4k so the picture improves:










    Here's the 256Gig card that I use (and recommend): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09WB3D5GQ?ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details

    Looks great. Thinking of doing the same.
    Did you do anything to prep it before painting? And how is it holding up?

    Thank-you sir
    It was great, but I truly miss this community.
    I got a spanking for being contumacious again, so after reflecting for a month, I decided to make these improvements…to my 4R! :p ^^^

    Yes. Very easy to do, 4 bolts on each side. You remove the plastic end caps first with some type of plastic pry tool. I watched a YouTube vid to see how that was done. Once the caps are removed, there are two bolts in the front and two in the back holding each side on.

    It's best to loosen the bolts a little at a time alternating back and forth between the two until they come out. Don't completely remove one and then the other. Doing it that way may cause an issue in trying to reinstall it afterwards.

    This is the paint I used.

    Very nice, good to see they have the machined lip again. Are they 17x8.5 w-10mm offset? Did you buy SCS's lugs as well?

    Please repost with photos on your Runner, not seen these on a Lunar Rock exterior anywhere, look forward to it.

    Blacked out badges, window deflectors, smoked 3rd brake light. I have a Borla muffler on order as well as some color matched engine cover stickers. I'll be painting the stock wheels soon as well. Falken tires in the fall as well.
    Changed the oil and filter. Greased the drive shafts (I refuse to call them propeller shafts). Good for another 5,000 miles or 6 months.

    Toyota has to call them something different, because they already used "drive shafts" to describe the CV axles in their service manuals.

    Yeah they’re the x8.5s. I love the -38mm look, but don’t want to do all the work to make them clear.

    I’ll have pics when they’re on for sure!

    How does one grease them? What kind, and how often?

    Blacked out badges, window deflectors, smoked 3rd brake light. I have a Borla muffler on order as well as some color matched engine cover stickers. I'll be painting the stock wheels soon as well. Falken tires in the fall as well.
    First of all you need a grease gun. There are grease fittings on each u-joint, two on front shaft, two on rear one. There are also one fitting each for the slip joints on each shaft. I use synthetic grease on all of them. I do it every other oil change which means every 10,000 miles. This is a pretty good video.

    I just ordered new grease gun
    Heavy Duty Professional Pistol Grip Grease Gun 6000 PSI - 18 inch Flex Hose & Valvoline Palladium #2 3% Moly, Heavy Duty (HD) Grease 14.1 OZ Cartridge
    Mine is ok, but it's the lever type pump & I have a small pistol pump one. I have a new tube of Lithium for that I'll use on my tractor. Amazon be here tomorrow. I only have 27xx miles since new last Nov. I'll be changing oil @ 5k intervals on this one. I have always done the 10k W/last 4runner, Tacoma & 2 FJ's. This one sits a lot more due to working from home. Just ordered the OEM Oil filter Aluminum cap had that on last 4Runner too.

    I pulled the gutter guards off my house last year. The packrat in me knew they must be good for something so I tossed the pile in the shed. 1 Piece was enough for me, maybe I'll find another use for these next year

    LOVE THOSE TIRES! What a transformation.

    ...and here we see the majestic 4Runner in its natural habitat...the fueling station. Never can this venerable beast of burden and voracious prowler of mud stray too far from its source of sustenance.

    Is this a paid or subscription App? Do you have Apple or Android? Does it matter? Thanks. Never mind it's a paid sub that I don't need. Thanks for the previous post!:hattip:

    Dobinsons 2.5" lift. Cooper AT3 XLT 295/70R17.
    When I bought mine, the adapter was $20 on Amazon. The first 3 months of the subscription were free. Also, any changes you make aren't affected when your subscription ends. I forgot the subscription tiers at the moment. I think you can pay my month, year, or a small fee for a week. You're not limited to one vehicle either.

    While I'm not a fan of these subscription models, it beats Toyota's $90 (30min rate), and some dealers won't change some things like the seat belt chimes.
