    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.
    It's different. I kinda like it. The only thing that really matters is that you like it though.

    Finally installed one of my showers the other day
    Anyone who has built one, I have a pressure relief valve where the faucet is(left)...no leaks anywhere but where I fill the tank with water/air(right) water bubbles come out(this is a screw in cap)I only go to 20psi
    Do I need to overkill tightening the threaded fill cap? Is there too much water? Does my valve need to be open? My gauge goes down to zero but when I open my valve a lot of air/water is pushed through
    Any ideas?


    took off sliders to clean/paint
    Going from silvergreyish to some sort of black...biting the john wick batman bullet I guess

    I kinda like the green. I’m doing a few things in neon green on my 4Runner to match my dive gear.

    Yeah I was contemplating the bigger offset and now I am glad I didn’t go that far out. It would have been way too much for me.

    No, it doesn't look dumb, lots of engineers go to Purdue....

    JK!!!!..., bad as$ engineering program for sure, and an all around great school. Just had to throw it out there, since everyone else missed it. I thought maybe you were a golden domer going green.., but the look is good. Not something you see, and you know it is yours!

    Good stuff! Go Boilermakers!

    Flash flood warning, new tires, gotta get them out there to test how they perform in the rain. Needless to say I couldn’t find any major puddles and didn’t want to be out more than 30 minutes. Good drain system where I am at I guess. So instead I took pictures of the 4Runner out in the rain.

    Got this Nfab grill light mount from @RusPro17 and finally installed it with some KC lights.

    Then added these flag magnets from tactilian

    Also did some off roading earlier in the week but didn't really get good pics. These things have less ground clearance than I thought they had, but a lift should fix that.

    Installed a Sprint Booster. I'm a really mellow older suburban driver, but the stock throttle latency and foot travel required to go faster was not working for me.

    Too expensive, but then again I'm glad there was a solution for this.

    Got some pictures of the front camera view yesterday. It really shows everything that is missing from view with the long hood. Please excuse the quality of the cell phone pictures.

    You’re right, this mod is plug and play in certain trims of certain years. And the actual part changed from a 6 pin device to a 4 pin for MY 2000+.

    It’s described in this thread. Read the linked posts. One member listed the combinations in a chart.

    Important:
    -Get the correct P/N for your 4R.
    -Decide if it’s plug and play or if you need to do a wiring mod.
    -When you get it, test it before snapping it into the dash. The tabs are oriented such that it will be very difficult to remove if you need to replace it.
    -There’s a post that describes how to set up the Entune screen for dimming.
    -The info is in the long linked thread, mostly toward the end. Summary chart: How to use:

    Thanks man, this is my first 4R, got it at the end of Feb. Didn't think to try this because in previous vehicles it turned on interior lights and the cargo/bed light in pickups. Went and tried it while cleaning the Outer Banks out of my truck today and sure enough

    Good deal. Glad it worked for you. Mine was the opposite. I was kinda disappointed it doesn’t turn on the interior lights. As far as I can tell there’s really no way to do what I want without either opening a door or manually turning on the lights.

    I have had this question since day one. How do we make a mod to turn on interior lights? Maybe tap a door signal to make the truck think a door is open..? I know little about electricity.
    This is a big annoyance (1st world problem) we have with the 4Runner.

    Any performance gains? I have been kind of following KDMaxx tuning and they keep saying their Tuning will be available soon. Still waiting. I agree, I have heard the Taco trans is kind of crappy, but even the manual guys have had good success with tuning the 3.5
