    One would think that the cover would be more robust. However, the guy at the dealership told me that they have seen a few that just become loose. Then it takes nothing to get them off-kilter. Mine broke ... at least the two tabs towards the back, so a new unit has to be installed. He said I am lucky that the roof didn't flex or dent.

    True. BUT... it was a couple of days later. I wish I had gotten out of it as soon as I pulled out of the wash, and taken a pic with my phone. Now it would be my word against theirs.

    It's the weirdest thing. I'm up in Plattsburgh (about as far north as you can get in NY) and we only have about 6 inches of snow. Only one storm so far

    Just came home with new ELKA lift. At stock settings its really good on road. Need to play with the settings and see how it handles both on and off pavement.

    Sorry I have no clue what Elka use on them.. :(

    When Toytec show me the package it was pre-assembled (if that the correct word to say shocks and coils were as 1 part in the box). I will see if I can see anything written on the springs.

    I think they come with 700lb springs stock unless you specify you want something else........so I'm guessing they're 700lbs. No need to dig into it if it's a pain in the ass. I was just curious. :cheers:

    I have been debating between the 2.0 and 2.5. I really like the length of the 2.0 you have.

    Still kinda starting out with my (wife’s) 4Runner build. This is second behind my Taco so it’s going slower! We bought it back in October, so far I’ve just added a pro style grill with lights and swapped out the roof rack with a black one. Next thing is to get some Method Bronze 305’s and all terrain tires :D

    Gotta love the Wildpeaks! I’ve got them on the Taco and hopefully they’ll be on my Runner sooner than later.

    yes, it will rub
    it seriously easy compared to the videos I have seen, we both watched the same youtube. Start from the inner corner, walk up, put the tool in just a few mm and twist slowly and "walk" your way your way up, you will feel it when you are close to a tab, it will work itself out.
    I actually find it harder to put back in than to take out, especially the lower black part. I am confident I can do it any day, any time, with no tabs broken. It's easier than it looks.

    We are in a provide-wide lockdown, province-wide stay-at-home-order, emergency state declared.
    Can't go anywhere, police enforcement is at all time high.
    i just went in the garage and touched its fine curves, admired its bodacious forms, went inside, smelled the interior like a breath of fresh air and then just got back in the kitchen and had 3 more beers.
    WTF is this Mickey Mouse shit going on.

    Blacked out the front and rear badges, added the AVS hood protector and removed the TRD Off Road side badges. Next step will be replace the wheels, plasti-dip the valances and get some black running boards.

    Looks great. Want to replace the wife's OEM bug guard (metal on metal no bueno). Is that AVS the bugflector or bugflector 2? If you got a P/N it's much appreciated. Thank you

    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.

    Installed my c4 dual battery tray in prep for either tomorrow,Sunday or Monday getting the second battery in and wired up. Also took the time to run a rope from the second battery tray through the frame and up into the rear of the truck for my power panel and fridge. That way I knew how much wire to make for the whole system.


    I will say for 20/21 and maybe others you do not have to take that big plug off the passenger side fender. Just be careful and take your time and you’ll be good to go. I ended up breaking the clip that holds it into the fender so I carefully put it back in and put a small stainless screw into the plastic to act as a wedge to keep it from moving. I yanked on it a little to make sure it wouldn’t come out while out on a trail and it is as solid as the plastic teeth that were holding it. BECC8070-0ADA-4292-A8A2-9510AE975F09.jpg
