    No matter what battery you have, I dont like the idea of something being able to pull power when not in use.
    I would think it would days days, weeks to drain it maybe,, but, it can.
    A switch inline with it would be fine for something like a USB charger.
    Relays are really only needed for things drawing quite a few amps, like light bars, most switches can handle several amps.

    Considering doing something. Need opinions first. So alot of people add CAI more for sound than the negligible gains of power. On my old chevy i just took off the intake resinator and put a 3 inch rubber pipe cap on it wjth a hose clamp. I feel like i could do the same to the 4runner.20190212_115716.jpg assuming those are in fact resonators. Goals being nicer intake sound for 10 bucks. Thoughts?

    Saw the KDSS lean fix in here. Is it easy to do or would it just be better to throw a couple 1/4" spacers on the passenger side and not worry about it?

    Yes it's been done using metal fence post caps. The smaller resonator has a vacuum line going to your fuel pressure regulator. That has to be plumbed in one way or another. Maybe just remove the larger one, leave the small one with the vacuum line?

    They are but it looks like the small bulb and large bulb are independent meaning you could cut the plastic between them and separate them. I never looked that close though so I may be wrong.

    Is this permanent or just a temporary fix?

    It’s a permanent fix to the KDSS imbalance if there is any. Now, there is an acceptable 3/4” difference between driver side and passenger side.

    If you back the bleed valves out, it’s 10-12mm from the surface or about 3-5mm out from where it is. The attached picture shows it better. You want to back it out just enough to let the system balance out, not so much that you introduce air into the system.

    Changed the oil, air filter, rotated the tires, greased the driveshafts, and installed some new Icon 2.0 rear shocks today.

    Noob dude from KC here. Threw on some boards tonight. Had to go to dealer anyway so they let snap some quick pics while I was there.

    These are the iBoards. Pretty cheap in my opinion. I'm never going to climb up the side of the Grand Canyon in this thing so I'm fine with some easy to throw on boards, but these are pretty thin. Thinking they will eventually bend or warp. Got them through walmart.com so I can just return them to the store if I decide they suck as much as I am thinking they might.

    Those are sweet as hell. Is that center cap logo flat and not raised at all?

    You can get OEM steps for about 100 bucks, people take them off pretty much every day. I would return that junk and go with OEM if you feel you must have steps.

    Looks good. How is the dash kit? Does it feel as high of quality as the stock dash or is it flimsy. Did you paint it yourself?

    We'll see, I've got 90 days to return them. Haven't really seen any OEMs that I really like either, I'll keep my eye out though. Mostly just considering these costume jewelry. Sliders are way overkill for what I'm ever going to do(curb hopping at the stadium or speedway) and the steps are so my elderly mom can get in easier if I ever need to take her anywhere.

    Yes sir. The soche kit is legit, and I prefer it over the "other" one/bezel. The vent stuff, little spacer by the clock, all fit really nice. Like it was born to be there.
    And yes sir,.. painted it in my spare bed room.

    When I did some reading and sniffing around, there are 2 colors people use. I think the black sand pearl was pretty much dead bang. The clear coat I used, a dude turned me on too, I highly recommend, .. it really made it.

    Heck I have a pair of OEM off a 2018 ORP that I’ll sell you for 100.00 plush shipping. I even live in Saint Louis if you want to make the drive.

    Can you send me a picture of them? I might consider doing that if I like them and the shipping isn't too crazy. All I'd need is the weight and box dimensions so I could get an idea of the shipping cost and I could shoot over a prepaid UPS label from our UPS account here at work.
