    Painted the roof rack end caps black and removed the SR5 badges. It left a pretty bad outline of the SR5 logo so I ordered some black SR5 emblems on eBay. Next is the trd grill and 5100s.

    What’s the measurement of your front lift from center cap to bottom tip of the fender line? Including rear as well? Thanks!

    The front is 37.75 and back is 37.5

    Hoping the front settles a bit once I put some miles on it.

    I appreciate it boss. That’s from the ground measurement right? The most accurate measurement is measure the center cap of the wheels to bottom tip of fender.

    Was planning on doing this over the weekend, but went installed my fox 2.0's this evening. My goal was just to level the front. Out of the box they're supposed to be setup for 2" of lift; I was worried that might be too much. So before install, I compressed the springs and adjusted them down a bit on my workbench. Lowered the driver side by 1/4", and the passenger side by 7/16"(difference to help account for the lean). As of right now, it does seem to sit ever so slightly front high... but it should settle. Had I not adjusted them, it seems like they definitely would have turned out front high.

    No full profile pics yet, will post one tomorrow. Hard to get a good full picture in the garage, and it's night out and pouring rain (with hail) outside right now, lol.

    Hit the 1k mark on the odometer after a drive from Sacramento to Vegas yesterday. These are so comfortable to drive, I did 4+ hours before my wife finally asked to stop. With our previous road trip car, after 2 1/2 hours we were looking for any excuse to stop.

    Actually everything made by Toyota is TRD Just doesn't have the overrated and overpriced Pro features. With that said, still not a fan though, remove badges, don't add more for no reason.

    Went in for a front end alignment... and as a bonus I also got a free antenna alignment! (doh!). Had no idea they were going to run it through the car wash after the alignment, I guess one of the roller things caught it and ripped it off (had I known, I would have pulled it off prior). Thankfully no damage to my 4Runner, and they promptly compensated me for a new antenna.

    Just for reference, the second picture is the antenna before.

    No one hates pro owners. They're the exact same as every other 4Runner. Only thing about them that makes any difference at all when it comes to capability is lockers.

    But I like my set and I've put the pro suspension and skid plate and figured it deserves a better badge than a regular sr5.

    It's not hate, its jealousy. Hell, I haven't bought yet and the only way I can afford a pro is to sell my wife on the dark web:cheers:

    Don't be jealous. The Pro is an SR5 with lockers and a few electronic gadgets. Anyone can wheel with lockers and electrical systems to basically drive for them. It takes talent to wheel and not get stuck due to skill. I'm not a pro hater other than some of the horrible colors they come in lol. Having those features is great for some, maybe even required for some. Personally I am very happy with my SR5 and chose it because I hate electronics, hate the push start, would have liked leather but that's an easy upgrade, and I personally have no need for lockers.

    If I could build my 4R piece by piece, I would take something from a number of models. I would want the SR5 because I don't like the extra cladding on the other model bumpers. I would want the manual transfer case over the electric shifter. I would want leather over cloth. I would want a rear locker over open diff just to have it even for heavy snow. I would want regular key over push start. I wish we could pick stuff like this and build exactly what we want.

    TRD is nothing but a gimmick to begin with. At least when it comes to the 4Runner anyway. TRD stands for Toyota Racing Development. Last time I checked, there is nothing even remotely close to race inspired about a 4Runner lol.
