    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 don't know if anyone else posted this. If so I apologize. I think the 4Runner did very good against this brand new, full of off road tech Bronco. Plus like he says at the end the Bronco is very uncomfortable on road (I've seen/heard that in other places as well). All in all there's no way this thing makes the 4Runner any less desirable and there's also most likely no way the Bronco will be nearly as reliable.

    I wish he actually tested it with the 4door Bronco instead of the 2 door shorter wheel based Bronco. Would've been a better true world test.

    Actually it wasn’t that bad. I just took my time. There is a great YouTube video. The thing that all the videos miss is there are 2 adapters you can buy from Amazon to allow you to use the factory GPS antenna.

    Old pic but this was a rough build of what you’re doing. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Axle length suspension etc. D2C79C3E-2234-4C04-8A1F-EAD05EFACA51.jpg

    Base was pre fab from Home Depot. I added the rack axle hubs wheels and tires. Then started in closing it. It’s a 4x6. Added a dexter 3500 axle on it.

    Dropped my rig off to see what's up with the alignment this morning and just got back from picking it up. Thankfully they've got it tracking straight and true once again. Sadly, my caster is now back to stock settings as I forgot to mention I want that kept at +4 degrees. I'm not complaining though, my beast is driveable again and no more rubbing at full lock on the driver's side now!

    Got a Walmart futon mattress (full size) for the upcoming trips.
    It fits (barely) but in time it will be snug.

    I would love to hear more about this. I have a standard 4x8 that does not fit my lawn mower any more. Do you have any other pictures you could share and any issues you ran into? Thanks!

    At one point in time you could order these off “Car Trim Home” … but I don’t see them on there website anymore … found these on eBay … if that’s what you’re referring too…

    Gotcha … haven’t seen anything specific to our 5th Gen yet … saw this vid a few months back and the only thing that I would do differently would be to as I tape up edges I would place small thin magnets spaced evenly around the perimeter and continue to fold over the duct tape to finish forming the frame edge …

    Not much help, so good luck finding some.

    There have been DIY window screen ideas in this forum and the other T4R forum.
    Also there are these products, a window sock:

    And snap in shades that function like screens:
