    Totally agree, but Budbuilt doesn't put anything on their stuff, that was one of the reasons I went with them for the sliders/skids.

    That's where I am. Make it smaller or offer an option where it doesn't exist.

    Agreed, I think smaller is totally acceptable but I would not expect it to be deleted all together.

    AD7EA454-16F5-4944-9C3A-2BA034A86CF7.jpg Towed a trailer with 3 bikes through some soft deep sand. It was like pulling an anchor, 13” tires on the trailer. Had a running start around 20mph and slowed down to about 5 when the computer kicked in and startied leveling out the car and got on top of the sand. I thought I was about to get stuck until the computer took over and managed the power to wheels. Didn’t even use the multi terrain

    Not a fan of the red, would prefer all blacked out including the rear lift gate.

    The red up front is different, and I kind of like it. However I am not a fan of the side badges on these vehicles no matter what color or configuration they are, and I would just debadge those off the vehicle if it was mine. Looks so much cleaner that way IMO.

    I like the red on the side badges :thumbsup:

    I'm also not sure about the red on the front. I tend to prefer the grey it comes with.

    Got the rear cargo area set up for my 100lb great dane/lab mix by adding a cargo protector, then a cheap comforter from Wal-Mart. My old tool box from the Yukon was too big, so I bought a couple of smaller black totes to store my gear. Dog loves the lowering rear window!

    Was also pleasantly surprised to find that my carry pistol rides perfectly in the lid of the center console...

    I'm now in the middle of coating the factory rims with Plasti-Dip. One side is done and it looks 10x better than stock. Very happy so far.

    Red looks great on the sides.

    I vote for blacked out on the front.

    I like both. I also like the blue truck. I’m not a fan of the Blacked out letters/logo against the flat black plastic on the tail gate. I was going to do the red on the side panel, but in the end I just blacked them out. 1) one less project on the list, 2) I like the flat black overlay against the “midnight black” paint (or whatever Toyota calls their black finish), 3) I’m going with grey overlays on the tailgate logo/letters to match the Pro grill letters. I though a third color would be too much. But the cool thing... we can make out trucks look different.

    Are you interested in selling your stock temperature control knob? Mine is missing the orange plastic piece that points to the temp setting.

    Looks good! I want the long automatic shifter from them. If i get that I'll probably add these knobs as well.

    I’d be interested in the knobs if someone had a mod to add them to my aftermarket Pioneer radio. :rofl:

    Yesterday i threw on some tyger steps/running boards... I'm on the fence about liking them... I like the design, but since my 4runner isn't lifted, and since there's currently street tires on it... it looks off to me a bit.

    I plan to add some meatier all terrains in the future and a lift is also a possibility... But for now I'll live with these. I guess they'll at least protect against some door dings.




    Completely different note.. I start a full automotive technology class next week. 2 years long, Monday-Friday.

    I'm in my mid 30s. Decided i didn't like not knowing how to work on engines myself so i enrolled in an in depth program. Everything from engines, transmissions, electrical, a/c, brakes, suspension and performance training. All systems are covered fully. Hands on at the local college. Looking forward to it.

    I didn't see on their site just the Xfer case shifter knob. Did you contact them for that particular item?

    Black out what? The front and back badges? I removed the side badges. I guess i could try and find some decals that go over the front and back badges...

    Plasti-dip never lasts long with me. It gets chipped or peeled off while offroading. If i wanted to do the roof bars I'd need them replaced or painted. More money than its worth most likely.

    Black rims are cool, I've had them... But they stay dirty and are a pain to clean. I live a mile and a half down a dirt road that's either extremely dusty when dry or mud puddles everywhere when wet. Too much work with black LOL

    There is an overlay kit made by Toyota that goes right over the OEM chrome emblems and makes them matte black. Looks much better IMO I agree, stay away from plastidip, stuff is junk.
