    Used it to tow boat to lake. Cloudy all day sprinkled. Caught two nice size Yellow Perches & small blue gills. Didn't stay too long, wife was cold W/wind & no sun.

    Yeah I just hit the trails last night and hit up my rock sliders a little. Slid right into it from the mud. Totally out of my control but that is why I have them.

    The damage isn’t vast and honestly I had to take a second look but it was enough that I noticed when it happened and I said… yeah rock sliders.

    Unless you got some straight sliders with kick out like a mofo, sliders ain’t gonna prevent what happened in that pic

    Removed the Yakima basket from the Venture. Now it's a wall mounted trophy in the garage. ;) Will keep it on hand for when I hit the road for points west.

    I like it...nice little accent color. I did my letters in gold/yellow for a while but it was a bit much. settled for the black/gold lettering on the C-pillars -see my profile pic << . just the right amount of 'stand out,but not a lot" :)

    howdy!
    the wife and i recently (july 9) brought home our new 4runners.
    she had a santa fe, i had a highlander....we love 'em!

    we had ordered silver for her vehicle, but both arrived white. we got $1,000 off list on each unit...not wonderful, but apparently a better deal than in some areas. we ordered these about 2 mos before they arrived.

    we reside in the kcmo area.

    Got a 3" Toytec lift, 17" KMC Mesa wheels with a -12mm offset, KO2s in the 285/70 R17 variety, SPC UCA's, RCI sliders, body mount chop and the breather tubes relocated.

    Sadly this was ready a couple of days early and I couldn't go pick it up today because I had a surgery today. I have to wait until I am cleared to drive. Lol. #FirstWorldProblems

    Still super pumped!

    I feel like an idiot. After nearly 3 years I just noticed I can lock the glove box in my 2018. The funny thing is I’ve seen it a thousand times. It just never clicked in my brain that “hey, idiot, you can lock it up if you want to!”

    I am in NO way even a semi expert on paint finishes, but I have seen/read that the "Experts" want the water to "Sheen off" the vehicle & not bead up.:notsure::hattip:

    Some waxes/sealants are more prone to sheeting and some for beading.

    I was using the search function (probably not well enough) and didn't see a thread talking about fuel. Nearly every car I have, I put premium in. Was just curious what everyone runs in their runner?

    Most of my previous cars required it anyway. The one that didn't was my F150 ecoboost, but I still ran mid/prem because of the turbos.

    I remember we discussed this few times in this forum. Here in CO we have 85 / 87 / 91. I only pump from "Top Tier" gas stations. If I pump from Costco where the options are 85 & 91 I go with 91(premium). If I pump from a station like Shell I go with 87(mid). I don't care the elevation - air density talks. The manual doesn't say anything about elevation . It recommends 87 or higher. So I follow the manual. I don't think it's wrong to use premium.

    Got confirmation that my Cali Raised Sliders are processing, and thinking of getting the rear diff skid installed today.

    I'm also starting to get cold feet on the 285s. I'm cool with doing a fender liner/mudflap mod. Bumper trimming and BMC I'm not comfortable with at all. So, I'm tempted to go with my initial plan of Grabber ATX in 275/70/17s or go the pizza cutter route with some 255/80r17s...Sadly, my tires don't come in that size.

    Saw some Mickey Thompson Baja Boss ATs in 255/85r17 that I really liked, but, even with my lift I think those would put me in some serious "modify-to-fit" territory as well. *laughs*

    I'm going to miss my 4R, but the market made it to tempting to sell it. I got $55K and traded for an Outback Wilderness. Makes my 4R feel like a dump truck. Got rid of $8K in debt and lowered payment by $250/month. Check classifieds if you want anything.

    You’ll be back.
    Let us know how you like the CVT and if you get any better MPG than the 4Runner.

    Managed to get it home today. Here are some better pics. Really like the -12mm offset on the KMCs.
