    Ebay, Seller Mtnrider65. Store is Tacomavinyldecals.com These we’re listed for 2017 Tacoma. But I told him they were for the 4Runner skid plate. They are new from him. He does not have them posted yet for a 4runner. Just let him know and he will send you the correct ones. I hope this helps.

    No thanks lol. Don't care what the sample says. I change oil and filter every 5K using OEM Toyota filter and synthetic oil. Overkill? Maybe! But cheap peace of mind for me. Not to mention if your engine failed, your warranty is void if not changed on time with receipts to prove it. Warranty doesn't care what your sample guy says, you're paying for an engine.

    It will with slight trimming of the skid plate. Whole bunch of write ups on it, been done many times. Looking for one myself but not willing to pay what most people ask when I can get a real skid plate for about the same price. Shop around, you can get much stronger in this price range unless you find a great deal on something.

    RCI, CBI, Shrockworks, Budbuilt, Pelfreybilt, C4 Fabrication. Search around, lots of options out there.

    Did the first oil change on it. I'm at 6225 miles. Went with Mobil 1 0W20 and a stock Toyota filter element.

    I had originally planned on using the free ToyotaCare, but after my experience at the 5000 mile free service, I remembered why I can't stand dealer service. Took them about 15 minutes just to check me in and then about an hour and a half to rotate the tires and do the inspections they are supposed to do.

    The day after I noticed that the valve stem caps were missing off of two of my wheels....ugh.

    Simply not worth the time driving to and from the dealer and then the absurd amount of time it takes them to get things done.

    So that's where I'm at, figured since I wasn't gonna wait for the free oil change, I might as well go ahead and do it a bit early before the winter weather hits.

    Could not agree with you more, Dealers suck. Was getting notices to come in for my 5k service, chatted online with them, told them I would bring it in only if I get my first oil change along with tire rotation, reminding them that my 2016 Tacoma received it's first change at 5k because according to their own information, if you tow frequently it would be changed at 5k, and it was, she just kept saying the first change is at 10k and only the rotation and inspection would be done, sure the hell isn't worth the drive, or my time.

    Initially, I think I would use plastidip so I can peel off the black finish if I wanted to go back to original. By the way, I'm assuming you're talking the bumper insert on a Trail or Offroad model.

    Not all dealers are the same !! I've been buying vehicles (7) and getting the serviced by the local Toyota dealer since 1982...I suggest you amend your comments to 'SOME' dealers

    oh the list....!
    Good thought.My new bumper (Schrockworks), also comes with a new front skidplate as well, and don't know what wrenching, if any, may be required for filter removal with it installed. As you have noted, I think that I am also going to forego the time consuming oil filter drain as well. BTW, while I am thinking, enjoyed reading about your trip up to Alaska and through the Midwest. Gorgeous pictures,and the commentary at times was hilarious.

    put in a 32in led bar hidden behind grill on my t4r Limited. Turned out great, but took a little time figuring out how to do the install since the rago fab brackets don't fit the limited's. Puts out a good amount of light for being behind the grill.IMG_2425.jpg IMG_2424.jpg IMG_2423.jpg IMG_2431.jpg IMG_2419.jpg IMG_2420.jpg
    ended up attaching the bolts to the metal frame above the bolt pictured here for more stability

    Well after numerous attempts to fix the tailgate and it never quite being right, I sold it today. Maybe I’ll try again down the road, but for now we’ll stick with our two cars and pay some other stuff off. Bummer...I liked that 4Runner.

    oh the list....!
    Amsoil guarantees your engine with their oil. Don't think they have have had an oil based engine failure yet (and we're talking SEVERAL decades here....). 282K miles with my 2011 Outback using their oil, using similar oil changes. My fathers 2000 taco with 350K+ on the clock likewise. Do what you want , it is your money. Amsoil has been in the business for years, and doesn't blow smoke. It takes a little getting used to, going longer on oil changes, I admit. But after you check your results, you realize that they really know what they are talking about. Do some research, they advertise 100K oil changes with big rigs with their dual remote setup.

    Maybe so but still not doing it. $50 for an oil change is cheap peace of mind as far as i'm concerned.
