    Nitto Terra Grappler - they were my original stock tires. I was already looking to upgrade, this just escalated that decision. lol

    Not really sure! I hate to admit - when I got in the car this morning the tire pressure light was on - but it was cooler this morning so I figured it was ok. I had a moment where I thought "just get out and look" but this is definitely not the first time it has come on when it's "cool" (by Houston standards) so I just went ahead and left. Was driving on the hwy about 80 MPH and suddenly had a LOT of road noise - I figured something was wrong and started to slow down - then it became very apparent I had a flat - so I pulled off. By the time I was able to get to the opposite shoulder (no shoulder at all on the left) - it was fully blown out. I was on a raised part of the hwy and didn't have room to change the tire (without getting flattened by crazy Houston drivers) so I drove it about 3 MPH to the next exit - that's when the remainder of the tire just fell away. I live in a new neighborhood - they are actively building on the main road - so maybe I ran over a tire - and it just went to hell from there? Really not sure :(

    Sidewall looks dry rotted and the little bit of tread that is left looks like it was very low. Maybe that with low tire pressure caused it. Good thing no one was hurt and it looks like there is no real damage.

    I like the retro T O Y O T A but usually de-badge my vehicles of all lettering. I may add a TEQ badge or some other logo later though, undecided

    Added a Kenwood compact powered subwoofer under the seat today.
    https://www.crutchfield.com/p_113KSCSW11/Kenwood-KSC-SW11.html?tp=114

    For some reason the Factory Subwoofer in my Runner has never worked (bought vehicle used). A powered, under-seat Sub is the easiest way to get low-end fill.

    Took about 4 hours. I worked slowly and made sure I understood where I was going. Also took some time to carefully tuck and hide the wires.

    The Kenwood Sub sounds way better than factory (no surprise, as it has 150 watts powering it). This is the only under-seat subwoofer that I was sure would fit under a 2010 Limited seat, and it fits Perfect! Sounds great, too! Adds a punchy low-end, that fills out the sound.
    Sounds better than my home stereo system (at least while the truck is parked).

    Yes, I need to vacuum. No, I'm not going to.

    Have you thought of blacking out that bumper Center section just under the grill?

    I'm really pleased with the end result! I was hesitant w/the bronze wheels - I really thought I wanted black - but I'm glad I went with these!

    Dude - buying them was SO stressful. I was online - counting down for the newest inventory to be released - and the site messed up. I tried and tried - and it kept failing. I thought for sure I would have to wait another month. Was SOOOOOOO excited to get them!!

    I had the Stealth 6’s on my Tacoma and sold them. Traded the Tacoma in. Not sure if I will try to get the Ray10’s. I was leaning towards the F5’s in Black. My Stealth 6’s were Bronze.

    All good options! I originally wanted SR8 but they didn't have them in stock. I'm very happy with my Ray 10s though!!

    Yes - it's the Ultimate 3" lift package from Toytec. Tires are Wrangler MT/R 285/70/17

    Have you had any issues with rubbing? Fender or UCA’s? Does the Ultimate toytech lift come with new aftermarket UCA’s?

    It was an option to add UCAs (which I did)

    No rubbing issues so far - did do the cab mount chop proactively though.

    Yes I think the Ray 10’s are much nicer. Right choice over the SR8’s

    Installed switches on the inside rear hatch to operate the window up down, doors lock / unlock, and the hatch release from the inside, ignition does not have to be on. Handy for camping and such.

    Not my design, just my installation.

    lol - Yeah I really shouldn't complain. A lot of people tried and weren't able to get them. It was like trying to get in on a hot patch drop though. Didn't expect that!
