    Very nice! Can you store anything on top of the safe and still be able to close the lid? Tissues, other thin items. etc...

    Don't think you would be able to get anything on top of the closed safe when closing the center console lid , unless its something that is very thin . The console lid has the bump out on the inside of it that is for napkins, tissues , etc . That does not have to be removed to install the safe or to properly close the lid . Hope this helps .

    Today I ordered 3M1080 Satin Vinyl tape to do RR side rails like another member did.
    Off Topic. Anyone need a DEKA ETX30L Battery? I ordered it inadvertently for my 2014 FXDC. Too big,won't fit. Waiting to hear from Amazon seller on possible return.

    About 5 months after I bought mine, something flew up from the highway and did this just above the windshield. A small dent and down to bare metal.IMG_20190314_161955.jpg

    Negative, I added the pillar assist grip on the drivers side. The ram arm is connected to the lower arm mount.

    I’ve had this mount for a while both on my Tacoma’s and the T4R and so far the phone has had no issues.

    I painted my Treaty Oak Offroad recovery points. Yes, they came in a pair. I have two. I just have one in the photo. I'll install them in a few weeks.

    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.
    I just got back to NY from NC after bringing my Willys to my son. 12 hours with only gas a pee stops. I'm pretty beat but the 4Runner did great. I already posted about towing it down there but I don't think I mentioned that I got around 12MPG never going above 60 MPH OK maybe 65 once in a while.
    Coming home doing 65 to 75 where kinda legal and a few stints cruising at 80 for a while I got 20.3. Not bad considering I was not driving to get the best mileage. I hate NY but I'm glad to be home. I really need to move to NC myself.

    I just installed the N-fab Nerf Step this morning. So far, so good, looks like a Predator, but not very low. No mods, except I had to remove a small piece of plastic on the rear end.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    This is the plastic I'm talking about, and is held in place by two small screws:

    So after installing them, I looked at the box and took a pic of the sticker to post it here, so it's made in china... I thought is was made here...

    Did this the other day, for giggles...20200801_173240.jpg
    Then last night, I tried to install the Gamiviti "tower mount" brackets...20200801_174122.jpgNot terribly impressed, in fact I'm rather annoyed at how little thought was given to 4Runners with this "universal" product. I didn't mind cutting out my own 1/8" rubber gaskets, but these things sit like 1/32" from painted metal so will undoubtedly rub and cause a rusted roof unless I buy a thin gauge rubber tape, and bend the bracket in two spots... which I'll need to do *anyway*, because as is clear in the photos, the damn things aren't bent at angles that complement the 4Runner's roof. So, I'd need to either buy a new vise, or try to fix the one I got... and then try multiple attempts with this incorrect tool to bend it by eye, then probably have to snug it down multiple times while tweaking it.
    I dunno, maybe buying poly blocks and carving them would be better? I've already got the butyl tape, rubber gasket material, and the stock bolts...

    Oh, as an aside... I managed to do this with the leftover stock hardware and rails... for giggles.
    Enjoy the eye-shock.20200801_193048.jpg
    Pretty sure I'll be selling these and fabbing my own mounts after all. Roof rack manufacturers kind of suck, every one that I reached out to either refused to sell their mounts, or wouldn't answer.

    Ouch! I have a nice dent just above windshield. I may or may not get it fixed. I'm glad I did the other dings though.

    Yes you can store other items. I added some rubber to the top so whatever I put on top won't slide around. I mainly put sunscreen and mints.

    Pretty nice! … Looks like they’ve made some design changes; I own a pair of there old style … Some time in the future I would like to switch them out to some welded on real rock sliders.

    Ok this is hilarious and I can’t believe it took almost a year to figure this out.

    My wife has a 2020 SR5P and she absolutely loves it, one of her biggest complaints was that she was able to lock and unlock her doors from the door handle on her previous cars and on the 4Runner she was only able unlock from the handle but had to either use the fob or the button on the hatch to lock it.

    My father just picked up a 2020 Taco TRDOR and I was showing him how to use carplay (he’s 73 and not great with tech) and I noticed on the door handle it had these two little lines, when you touch them the vehicle locks! I kept saying how great that was and wished it was on the 4Runner.

    Well...it is and it performs the same. Now my wife is happy and I feel so stupid it took us this long to realize it, even the dealership I picked up the 4Runner from told me there was no way to lock it from the handle.

    Thought everyone might like to laugh at my stupidity. :cheers:

    Took it off roading for the first time since buying it on Friday. Went up to Chipmunk Road, then through a pretty tight ATV road all the way up to a Cheam Valley viewpoint. It was awesome, lots of rocks and water crossings. Came out with zero trail damage, 11 hours of good times and an awesome memory. unnamed (1).jpg
